At the very least the American political machine offers endless opportunities for hilarity.
"After President Trump complained yet again of being treated unfairly, particularly by the press, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., jabbed him in an interview Thursday.“Well, first of all, I’ve been worse treated than President Trump has, let’s make sure that we know about that,” McCain said lightly during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
The senator was referring to his five-year-plus ordeal as a prisoner of war. Memorably, Trump questioned McCain’s heroism during the campaign when he declared, “I like people who weren’t captured.”
Other responses on social media pointed to politicians who were assassinated as examples of those had “been treated worse or more unfairly.”
Then again, JFK wasn't killed by a poison pen.
