This week, billionaire businessman and GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump ignited a firestorm in the media with his remarks about Senator John McCain’s war record, “He’s no hero!” declares Trump.

Obviously the remark is gratuitously nasty and typical of Trump’s attention-seeking, “shit disturbing” style.  Putting that aside, as this is a blog about REBT, what is wrong with this statement form the REBT perspective?

Plenty!  It is “REBT 101” and you could write a book about it. Dr. Ellis and others spend a lot of ink on this topic because is it so basic and so important.  Yet many people fail to “get it.” 

Before I write any more, I would like to know what your thoughts are.  From an REBT / General Semantics perspective,  what is wrong with the statement “He’s [McCain] no hero?  Why is this important and why should we care?
