John McCain was a 'rat' or 'stoolie' telling on other U.S. officers being held captive at the Hanoi Hilton prison. When McCain first went to congress, members of congress turned their backs on him and did not communicate with him because of this, and also how he disgraced the military and his fellow officers who were severely punished by the North Vietnam guards and commanders of the Communist prison by McCain ratting them out. I am also led to believe that McCain was referred to as 'the canary' by the other officers for telling or squealing on the others. If you search the internet you will find some of these articles about what McCain did to his fellow officers in captivity and the stories of the other brave officers who reported on McCain upon returning to the United States. He was also given special treatment by the communists while in prison, because his father was a 4 star Admiral. Donald Trump was and is CORRECT!

McCain was personally responsible for the deadliest fire in the history of the US Navy. That catastrophe, with 27 dead and over 100 wounded trumps McCain’s record as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam.
Some “hero”. McCain tried to “scare” the pilot in front of him by wet starting his plane on the carrier ....a little fun he was having, clowning around as usual ---------and caused a fire that killed 27, wounded 100 sailors_and also destroyed many jet war planes on the deck of the carrier that day. Read the entire article………. on the link above. McCain's father was a 4 star navy Admiral and helped cover that one up by immediately transferring his son to another carrier. So... were they a great military family? You tell me after reading the information and doing the research. I say NO!
