and has the gall to say prisoners of war like John McCain aren’t heroes.

In one sense, she has a point. Trump did in fact say that John McCain is not a hero despite his POW record, although Trump has since taken those comments back and called McCain a hero. However, Clinton’s speech was intended to more broadly attack Trump’s national security credentials, yet Trump has never made the general statement that POWs are not heroes, even if his McCain-specific comments did insinuate it. In fact, he has insisted to the contrary on multiple occasions. We rate this statement Half True. https://medium.com/@PolitiFact/fact-checking-hillary-clintons-attack-on-donald-trump-over-his-war-hero-dig-at-john-mccain-f2e2cab140a8#.dkwpsmhp6
