Sen. John McCain, R-AZ, on Thursday criticized President Trum[‘s claim that he has been treated worse than any other politician in history.
“I’ve been worse treated than President Trump has, so let’s be sure that we know about that,” McCain said during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
McCain was held as a prisoner and tortured for over five years during the Vietnam war.
Trump on Wednesday told graduates of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy that no politician has ever received the treatment he has.
“Look at the way I’ve been treated lately, especially by the media,” Trump said during his speech. “No politician in history — and I say this with great surety — has been treated worse or more unfairly.”
Trump also sent out a series of tweets Thursday morning characterizing the investigation into his campaign as the “single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!”
