Trump's Big CON: He is The Middle School Bully President, CONt.

UPDATE:  "Meghan McCain posted an angry and emotional tweet Wednesday in response to a report that President Trump has been 'physically mocking' her father, Arizona Sen. John McCain.

'What more must my family be put through right now?' she asked, as her father struggles with an aggressive form of brain cancer. 'This is abhorrent.' . .

Trump has a history of taking digs at John McCain. His comment in July 2015 that John McCain is 'not a war hero' because he got captured sparked national outrage.

John McCain, a former Navy pilot, spent more than five years as a prisoner of war after being shot down over North Vietnam. During that time he was tortured and spent two years in solitary confinement. Poor medical treatment in prison left John McCain unable to raise his arms above his shoulders."

USA Today, Meghan McCain appalled by report Trump mocked her dad

"In private, President Trump has taken to physically mocking M&M: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (slumped shoulders; lethargic body language) and Sen. John McCain (imitating the thumbs-down of his historic health-care vote).

Trump is venting about his frustration with what he considers failed leadership by Senate Republicans as he takes his lumps this week in wars with, well, everyone".

Read Axios, Trump, at war with everyone, mocks McCain, McConnell.

You might remember: "McCain was a prisoner of war in North Vietnam for five and a half years until his release on March 14, 1973.  His wartime injuries left him permanently incapable of raising his arms above his head."

Maybe his wife should have a talk with him.

Trump & The Repuli-CON's Big CON: Fiscal Responsibility, CONt.

"The United States' debt topped $20 trillion for the first time ever in September. If some Republican senators get their wish, it will grow even more.

Senate Republicans have tentatively agreed to a budget deal that would allow them to pass a $1.5 trillion tax cut. The catch is they aren't proposing spending cuts or tax increases elsewhere to pay for it. That means the nation's debt could increase by $1.5 trillion or more over the next decade. . .

The deal is even more remarkable, given that Republicans railed for years about how much money President Barack Obama (and President George W. Bush before him) added to the debt."

Read the Washington Post, The United States just hit $20 trillion in debt. Republicans have a plan to make it worse.
