Some Fights Aren’t Worth Having

Americans who admire Donald Trump say they like the fact that he’s a “fighter” but they ought to realize that some fights aren’t worth having. Why, for instance, get involved in a major brawl with John McCain? The Arizona Senator is one prominent Republican who isn’t running for president, so what’s the point of insisting he’s not a war hero or, even more absurdly, denigrating his academic record at Annapolis more than 60 years ago?

It’s important for Republicans to keep control of the Senate, so why attack a sitting Senator of your own party, who will almost surely continue as chairman of the Armed Services Committee? Trump’s pattern of feuds and childish insults – calling all who disagree with him “dopes” and “dummies” – is hardly presidential, and would be positively dangerous in foreign policy. It’s not just his simplistic approach to issues, but also his needlessly combative temperament, that disqualify him as a serious candidate.
