Senator John McCain has earned the right to talk his ish when it comes to all things military as a Vietnam War veteran and POW survivor. The longtime Arizona politician appeared to take a jab at President Donald Trump and other wealthy Americans who were able to dodge the draft claiming they suffered with “bone spurs” and other ailments.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) took what appeared to be a swipe at President Trump during an interview about the Vietnam War on Sunday, criticizing how upper-income Americans were able to obtain a draft deferment for having a “bone spur.”
McCain made the remarks while discussing the draft on an episode of C-SPAN3’s American History TV.
“One aspect of the (Vietnam) conflict by the way that I will never ever countenance is that we drafted the lowest income level of America and the highest income level found a doctor that would say that they had a bone spur,” McCain said. “That is wrong. That is wrong. If we are going to ask every American to serve, every American should serve.”
Also, props to Sen. McCain for spitting that real about how the draft targeted poor Americans across the board thus thrusting them into a war much of the country didn’t even want.
