During its golden age, The Simpsons covered all the bases. An exchange, relevant to today's McCain/Trump 'controversy', that transpired more than two decades ago:
Homer: That little Timmy is a real hero.
Lisa: What makes him a hero, Dad?
Homer: Well, he fell down the well and ... can't get out.
Lisa: How does that make him a hero?
Homer: [Angrily] Well, it's more than you did!
