    Peace to McCain's family and friends.

    Cancer is terrible. I wouldn't wish it on anyone. I wouldn't even wish it on Trump.

    I didn't agree with McCain's politics when it seemed he veered far right when the party bitch-slapped him in 2000. And of course he saddled the country with the idiot Palin. I do believe he came to regret that and some of his actions during the Bush2 years. I was pleased that he wanted the campaign to be done with civility. It is a shame that his party destroyed that.

    Yes, the same here; peace to family and friends; he at least had a "backbone" . Yes my wife's son died of the same thing; so I know how that is; an horrible decease and do not wish that to anyone.

    Today is McCain final service before he is buried. While watching I noticed Jared & Evanka were invited and they were there. Several of trump's administration where there as well. President Obama and President George Bush giving the eulogies.

    ...I can only imagine how pissed off trump is right now watching one of the biggest political events of the past decade, and he has been specifically told he is not invited.

    Bad news, this next week, trump will strike back at someone, some group, or hot button issue as payback.

    Jeff sessions better be praying right now he has a job on Monday morning, and cancer research might suddenly be defunded as being a waste of tax payer dollars.

    Good observation.

    Today, most of the nation mourns a great loss, Trump however is playing golf, he was not invited, but he sent his minion Mike Pence. Ryan, speaker of the house, made a statement, and he really doesn't understand what the passing of McCain means, his minute speech was insensitive at best.

    Trump and his base see McCain funeral\service as just a snobbish political elites that think they are better than Trump. McCain's unity message is nothing but crap from their perspective because they don't like\accept the concept as being inclusive. Unity, from trump's perspective means following, without questioning, autocratic leaders (ie Trump)

    "Make American Great Again" really means "Make American White again". Seriously, that is what trump and his base really are saying every time they utter "Make American Great Again", and McCain knew that.

    Kussner and Ivanka were NOT invited but showed up; later on Trump complained that they did not get up-front seats. The following happened: Trump arranged all of this because he was "nosy" what all would be said; therefore Kussner asked Lindsey Graham if they could attend; Lindsey asked Mrs. McCain; I don't know what the answer was but she did not want commotion and fell for it. Again this shows that Lindsey Graham has no "backbone" or even respect for his "buddy" McCain.

    The whole of the GOP is "polluted" and an bunch of butt crawlers.

    John McCain warned us years ago about Putin's attitude about Ukraine.

    McCain gained a reputation around the world as one of Putin's greatest antagonists, so much so that Russia officially sanctioned him in March 2014. A Kremlin spokesperson in 2017 said McCain was known for his "maniacal hatred towards our country." And during McCain's sixth and final Senate race in 2016, Russian trolls spread baseless conspiracy theories and insults on social media as part of a propaganda effort to smear him as a "traitor" or "RINO," or Republican In Name Only.

    In Ukraine, McCain is revered.

    Then-Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko was among the Ukrainian politicians and activists grieving after McCain's death on Aug. 25, 2018, per the Kyiv Post. He would attend McCain's memorial service at National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.

    On April 4, 2019, the Kyiv City Council voted to rename a local street to honor McCain. The new John McCain Street replaced Ivana Kudry Street, which had been named after an old Soviet Union intelligence officer during World War II.

    Arizona, does this help the people of the Ukraine? I guess not; probably the "street name" will be "bombed" and become Putin avenue. Wake up you know better.
