John McCain, the longtime senator and 2008 GOP presidential candidate who refused to leave fellow prisoners of war behind to escape years of torture in Vietnam, and whose maverick streak as Arizonas senior statesman at times frustrated fellow Republicans and confounded President Donald Trump, has died, his family confirmed in a statement Saturday.
He was 81and had been diagnosed with brain cancer in July 2017.
McCain had decided to discontinue medical treatment for the glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer, his family announced on Aug. 24. He had surpassed expectations for his survival, but "the progress of disease and the inexorable advance of age render their verdict," the statement said.

Looks like I will lose some weight the next few days...can’t eat if I’m going to throw up next few days.ha
May he rest in peace.
He was a Great American, Veteran and, pro-life politician.
he leaves us with a great legacy..
Here are two books detailing how John McCain in conjunction with WAPO and the DOJ destroyed Abramoff.
If you look the Ambramoff scandal up on WIKI McCain is not mentioned but these books sound like a blueprint for what we are seeing right now with Trump.
The Perfect Villain: John McCain and the Demonization of Lobbyist Jack Abramoff (Written by a lefty, but well researched)
Lynched! The Shocking Story of How the Political Establishment Manufactured a Scandal to Have Republican Superlobbyist Jack Abramoff Removed from Power.
This is how I will always remember him, God rest his soul.
I admit I’m going to miss Rush Limbaugh’s funny imitations of ‘crazy’ Juan McCain. He hasn’t done it for awhile, but - when he did - it was hilarious. Rush probably won’t ever do it again out of respect.
Would not surprise me in the least if his body does not lie in the Capitol Rotundra for a week, with a state funeral to follow in the National Cathedral.
“And those of us who claim the mantle of Jesus Christ have an even higher standard to uphold. Our Creator wants us to love our neighbor. Even when he is wrong. Loving our neighbor CERTAINLY doesnt mean being gleeful at his death.”
Daughter Babylon, doomed to destruction,
happy is the one who pays you back
what you have done to us.
Happy is he who takes your little ones
and dashes them against the rocks.
Seems folks here are being pretty restrained, all things considered. John McCain hated people like me. Best buds with Teddy Kennedy and total contempt for conservatives and Christians. I hope he repented before he died, but I won’t mourn the passing of a vicious liar and fraud.
He should have first alked to all the people he screwed over throughout the years...then he should have talked to God.
You are so right.....it was horribly wrong. He and John Kerry worked together.
But I never listen to her.
In selecting Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill the vacancy left by Justice Kennedy, President Trump has chosen a nominee with impeccable credentials and a strong record of upholding the Constitution," McCain said in a statement."
Actually, McCain's replacement will be able to vote on the confirmation and I seriously doubt that whoever it is will vote no. This gives Trump more if a margin. Even Flake has committed to voting for Kavanaugh.
Its sad, well McCain wouldnt care anyways and looks down on us anyways. But, he is in the company of Sadaam and Osama of people who are joyful of his passing.
I bet you three dollars his tombstone will be inscribed with something snarky about President Trump.
Check out the tweets:
Where was CNN when antifa blog the Huffington Post smeared McCain?
Don't let these tributes fool you. They smeared McCain as a white supremacist when he ran for office, and no one in the media cared.
This is all a big show, a theatre of lies. pic.twitter.com/JOcCeCD77z— Mike Cernovich 🇺🇸 (@Cernovich) August 26, 2018
I’ve had cancer, and I’ve been on morphine.
Of the two, I preferred morphine...

RIP, John McCain, a true military hero. My deepest sympathies to the McCain family.
Cool; well maybe not...
You're right. My sister had lung cancer. Entered hospice care on July 1, 2011. By the last week of August, she was comatose and died on her birthday, September 2nd. Hadn't been taking nourishment or fluids of any kind for over a week before she passed.
Thank you, this is my post from another thread, I am so sick of this crap going on in this country now.
Oh for Gods sake. The moaning and wailing from conservatives about people saying mean things about this creep. My 32 year old son is a down and dirty Marine grunt who was 20 years old when he was in the 2/2 Marines in Iraq. He himself would say he is no hero and he sure as hell wouldnt make some dirty bank deal as a senator and be such a douchebag as McCain was. The big deal that has always been made about this pig has always made me sick. This country is screwed. Were all so sensitive. He treated President Trump like crap and he can suck it as far as Im, concerned.
