Donald Trump thinks he’s riding high right now.

Republicans’ swift condemnation of Donald Trump’s disparaging comments about Sen. John McCain’s military service marks a turning point in the party’s cautious approach to the billionaire-turned-presidential candidate.

But Trump simply may not care; indeed he seemed to bask in his McCain takedown…

As the furor unfolded, Trump spoke dismissively of his rivals and the GOP establishment in an interview with The Associated Press, recalling his years of helping to bankroll candidates.

“You know the Republican Party – of course I was one of their darlings when I was a contributor,” he said. “I went from a darling to somebody that they’re not happy with because I’m not a politician.”

Asked whether he now thought McCain was a war hero, Trump merely referred to his previous day’s comments, when he said “perhaps” he was while seeming to mock McCain for being captured.
