On Tuesday, retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, did not hold back while criticizing the president during an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
Peters said that Trump’s latest actions such as attacking the late Senator John McCain (R-AZ) only showed the his “inadequacy.”
“He can’t help himself from once again attacking John McCain who is both a war hero and deceased,” Cooper said.
“John McCain was and in our hearts remains the man Trump could never be,” Peters said. “And Trump knows it. It’s a classic case of male fears of inadequacy. He wants to show us all how tough he is. He is not tough. He’s a draft dodger with a big mouth.”
“I have been privileged to know some men and women, I regard as genuine heroes,” he added. “And they don’t shoot off their mouths. They don’t gratuitously insult people. They don’t incite hatred. On the contrary, the people who have actually served this country so well with John McCain, his generation is a leading example, they don’t behave like Trump.”
Reporter Yashar Ali tweeted that Trump has been attacking McCain for over a decade. In an interview with a veteran reporter Dan Rather, Trump said that McCain was not technically a hero because he was captured in war.
A reminder that Trump has been talking about John McCain this way for two decades.

Scientists fight online coronavirus misinformation war
With cat photos and sometimes scathing irony, Mathieu Rebeaud, a Swiss-based researcher in biochemistry, has nearly tripled his Twitter following since the coronavirus pandemic began.
With 14,000 followers, he posts almost daily, giving explanations on the latest scientific research and, in particular, aims to fight misinformation that spreads as fast as the virus itself.
He is among a growing number of doctors, academics and institutions who in recent weeks have adapted and amplified their scientific messaging in hopes of countering what has been termed an infodemic -- a deluge of information, including widespread false claims, which experts say can pose a serious threat to public health.
Ted Cruz doesn’t want people shamed with body bags for going to beach: ‘Please stop the hate’
In early May, Florida attorney Daniel Uhlfelder made news by dressing up as the Grim Reaper in an attempt to scare people from crowding beaches during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Days later, he escalated by laying out body bags on the steps of the Florida capitol building in Tallahassee.
He escalated further on Saturday by announcing he would be handing out body bags to Florida beachgoers and started a fundraiser with the funds going to two progressive Political Action Committees.
The effort caught the eye of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).
