Surprised no one has mentioned this, but of course, this doesn’t reach mainstream media.  We now have yet more evidence that the Republican Party is now the Party of Trump. The Republican National Committee’s official Twitter feed decided to echo Trump’s shameful attack on Admiral William McRaven.

So there you have it. The GOP has no qualms about kicking a war hero when he is down. For those who don’t know, McRaven is in a bout with leukemia—a fact pointed out by leading never-Trumper Max Boot.

The reaction from the rest of the Twitterverse has been no less unsparing.

What in the world was Ronna McDaniel thinking when she greenlighted this? After this, I don’t ever want to hear about “General Betray-Us” again.

Sane Republicans, you have a decision to make. Are you willing to condone your party’s “leadership” swiftboating a war hero in this way?
