MSNBC terrorism analyst Malcolm Nance denounced military veterans who support President Trump due to his prior remarks regarding Sen. John McCain Saturday on “AM Joy.”
When host Joy Reid asked him about whether or not recently reported comments out of the White House regarding McCain’s health were how people discussed war heroes, Nance responded, “The difference between what’s going on with Trump’s military base and the rest of the military is very weird.”
“We have people who are behaving in sort of flight line field conditions where they can make all of the insulting jokes that they want and it’s going to be accepted,” Nance continued.

“These military people love him, alright? And I’m going to just come right out and say it — not honorable military veterans, because an honorable military veteran, if they had heard this story, would have said, ‘You know what, there’s a line. That line has now been crossed,’ but they have this cultish love of him where the love of Donald Trump exceeds the constitution and exceeds the love of the honor of everyone who has sacrificed and lost in this nation,” Nance said.
Nance’s comments come after McCain publicly announced his opposition to having Gina Haspel lead the CIA, White House communications aide Kelly Sadler reportedly said, “It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway.”
In 2015, before becoming president, Donald Trump came under fire after making comments regarding Senator McCain, saying, “He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured, OK?”
