A Donald Trump biographer on CNN accused Donald Trump of being a “frightened man” Tuesday.


Trump biographer Michael D’Antonio, appearing on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” said, “Donald Trump is essentially a frightened man. And when John McCain was in the Hanoi Hilton, Donald Trump, as he explained to me, was focused on making money, learning how to make more money and watching Johnny Carson.”

“This is a completely different set of values. He also talked about how McCain was less in his class at Annapolis. Well, McCain was in a real military academy, Trump was in a pretend academy at the same time playing soldier,” he added.

He also characterized Trump defending from criticism of McCain as “[threatening] a guy with cancer.”

McCain recently made headlines for criticizing, “some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.” (RELATED: McCain Warns Of Losing America’s ‘Ideals’ To ‘Half-Baked Nationalism’)
