But that's a small quibble, really. He's a good writer and we have free speech in this country. I would prefer people not be seduced into his "us vs. them" worldview because I agree with Barack Obama that what unites us is greater than what divides us. But whatever. I'd also prefer people not obsess on the Kardashians and the Duggars.
But Jim Wright moves from his usual edgy and descends into offensive when he starts in on John McCain. "Johnny Walnuts," as he likes to call him. He makes fun of how, when presented with Trump's ridiculous accusation about President Obama and wiretaps, McCain snarled in his "gravelly war-hero voice" and "shook his gnarled fist in the air."
John McCain cannot shake his gnarled fist in the air because, in 1967:
• He broke both arms as he ejected from his fiery warplane.
• He was then captured, and as a POW had his shoulder shattered by one of his captors.
Consequently, John McCain cannot lift his arms. He even needs help to comb his hair.

Jim Wright's military background doesn't make his Facebook post "informed." It makes it even worse.
Hillary Clinton's "deplorable" label should not be reserved for the alt-right. I was disgusted by Trump mocking Serge Kovaleski of the New York Times, and I'm disgusted by Jim Wright.
Let's try not to become what we hate.
