Where was all the Republican hue and cry when John Kerry was getting swiftboated?

I agree with everyone who is saying that Donald Trump went way too far about what he said about John McCain.  I guess we just found out what line you can't cross when Republican.  They were quite OK when Trump was trashtalking immigrants, both legal and undocumented.  Brown people are an easy target, so that was OK.  But badmouth John McCain?!?  Horrors!!!!

Republicans once again prove themselves to be 100% pure hypocrites.  What was said about John Kerry and his Vietnam War service and his medals including a couple of Purple Hearts was perfectly fine with Republicans back in 2004.

SBVT asserted that Kerry was "unfit to serve" as President based upon his alleged "willful distortion of the conduct" of American servicemen during that war, and his alleged "withholding and/or distortion of material facts" as to his own conduct during that war.[2] This claim caused tremendous controversy during the election, particularly because these veterans, most of whom had not been in a place to assess Kerry, challenged the legitimacy of each of the combat medals awarded to Kerry even though most[3] of the Vietnam veterans who served alongside Kerry or under his command disputed the criticisms and supported Kerry's version of events and his presidential aspirations.

Fucking hypocrites....
