Every political party has its share of weirdos and embarrassments.   The Republican Party is no different and Donald Trump's outburst against Senator John McCain where he took issue with him being described as a war hero places him fair and square in the weirdo and embarrassment category (if he wasn't there already).  

Trump has three things going for him; money and more money and an ego out of control.     His commitment to the Republican Party is at best tenuous having been a leading light in the Reform Party (1999-2001); a Democrat (2001-2009) and a registered Independent (2011-2012).    One thing is for certain ... he is no team player.   It's his way or the highway.

His attack on John McCain is extraordinary from a man who has never pulled on his countries uniform and who sought and gained a student deferment from the draft during the Vietnam war.   He compounded his brainstorm by criticising McCain for failing to act on the scandal that has engulfed the US Department of Veteran Affairs especially DVA run hospitals.  

Memo to Trump.  The UIS DVA is on organ of state run by a Democrat appointed by President Obama.   It's a bit like blaming a colleague Republican for the scandal that had the IRS conducting illegal audits of conservative political groups at the behest of the Obama administration.

Trump is unfit to be a presidential candidate for any political party except perhaps the US equivalent of the McGilliccudy Serious Party.     He joins Hillary Clinton in that regard.

Trump the Chump has threatened to run as an independent. Someone should send him a copy of Taito Philip Field's CV.

The silly bugger is leading the pack at the moment. Not for long I hope
