Original Title: Trump's vain obsession with John McCain

“I was never a fan of John McCain, and I never will be,” President Trump said recently at the White House, reinforcing his narcissist pursuit of a validated man card as a warrior wannabe by the attempted denigration of the late senator John McCain (R-Ariz.), a bona fide leader who not only sacrificed for but also, on many occasions, proved himself of exceptional value to this nation [“A grudge that even a grave won’t bury,” front page, March 21]. How should Meghan McCain respond to Mr. Trump’s comments? One simple tweet: “Donald, how are your bone spurs? Fully healed yet? I know my father’s wounds never did.”
