Former republican presidential nominee, Sen. John McCain, dies

McCain was diagnosed with cancer of the brain in July 2017

Arizona Sen. John McCain, a former Republican presidential nominee and a decorated veteran of the Vietnam War, died on Saturday, the Huffington Post has reported. He was 81.

McCain, who had a history of skin cancer, was diagnosed with brain cancer in July 2017 after a routine physical revealed a blood clot over his left eye. He had surgery to remove the clot, which doctors then determined was the result of an aggressive tumor called a glioblastoma. Earlier this week, McCain decided to discontinue his cancer treatment.

    CASH….TRUE is 100% correct.The man is dying,next for him is standing before his creator since we all live once and after that is judgment. You realize what he did, went out with a heavy heart..Those are the words of GOD: HOW DO YOU EXPECT ME ( GOD ) TO FORGIVE YOU WHEN YOU CANNOT FORGIVE ANOTHER. It dose not matter what Trump said about him, forgive Trump and leave Trump up to his own demise since that’s where he is heading anyway..
    It is so silly for he dose not know who’s at his funeral or who’s not…It’s not a wedding…
    Ignorance of the word of GOD is no excuse…..

    Trump never did apologize to him for saying he was not a hero because he was captured and held as a POW for 5 years. If Trump had any common decency as a man he would have gone to Arizona last week and apologized to him on his death bed. But Trump is not a man he a coward bully man child cry baby.

      McCain made it clear in planning his funeral , that he did not want Trump to attend. This is a man who on his dying bed could not find a place in his conscience to forgive Trump for what he said about him, so what decency are you talking about.

        The gentleman that he is, I am sure he forgave Trump. His wish is not to allow a contaminated man like Trump to be present at the peaceful send off. Trump brings drama at every occasion.

        Why don’t you mind your business, whether or not he forgave him how do you know he did not?

        You are judging a dead man, why are you people so judgmental and evil?

        If Donald Trump had his way he might have kill McCain, he hated McCain with a passion; to forgive someone does not mean one have to broadcast it to the world, or does forgiveness  means if I forgive you I must be friends with you.

        I believe the Bible teaches forgive but don’t forget!
