President Donald Trump is once again receiving harsh criticism for attacking a deceased Republican.
Many people were revolted by Trump's repeated attacks on former Sen. John McCain (R-AZ).
On Thursday, Trump started another fight with a target who is unable to respond.
The commander-in-chief sat down for an exclusive Oval Office interview with Washington Times columnist Charles Hurt.
“I have heard that she was nasty to me, but she should be. Look what I did to her sons,” Trump told the right-wing newspaper.
The internet was outraged -- again -- that Trump would attack a deceased leader of his own political party.
Here is some of the commentary:
