Sen. John McCain has taken the high road, saying he’s no hero and is fair game for even intense and unfair criticism because of his chosen profession.

That’s admirable. But what about the legions of Donald Trump fans, supporters and enthusiasts in the Myrtle Beach area. Who among you will be the first to call Trump to the carpet for the ugly things he said about soldiers who have been captured during war?

Anyone?

The Myrtle Beach area has proud, deep military roots. Certainly that means more than an allegiance to an over-hyped, skunk-haired GOP presidential candidate who seems to be in the midst of a game of pretend instead of an actual campaign.

Remember, it wasn’t too long ago that Trump became the darling of the South Carolina Tea Party in Myrtle Beach.
