'No class'

Donald Trump's ghostwriter won't vote for him

The man behind the words of Donald Trump's 2000 book The America We Deserve says he can't support Trump for president. In an interview Wednesday on Fox News radio's Alan Colmes Show, writer Dave Shiflett said that he thought Trump had displayed "no class" on the campaign trail, particularly when he railed on Sen. John McCain's (R-Ariz.) military record. "I'll tell you what really bugs me about him, where it really ripped it with me and Trump was the stuff he said about McCain," Shiflett said. "McCain suffered severely, and I had a son who did two tours in Middle East during the last war and we had kids from here who went over there and some of them got hurt. They ain't gonna be the same."

Aside from calling out Trump's remarks, Shiflett also questioned the Republican presidential candidate's reliability. "I used to think it was my first work of fiction," Shiflett said of the book he ghostwrote for Trump back in 2000. "Who knows where he stands on anything."
