Well, I feel the same as I did before I read of his passing. See mom, I didn’t say anything bad about him. At least not here.
I didn’t agree with him on issues, but I don’t wish this on anyone. God bless his family and friends and may he rest in peace.

Arizona Sen. John McCain, a former Republican presidential nominee and a decorated veteran of the Vietnam War, died on Saturday. 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.
The diagnosis did not immediately impede McCain from his work in the Senate, where, among other issues he was involved in, he played a major role in derailing the Republican effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act. He later described the disease as “very, very serious,” and said his doctors had told him he had “a very poor prognosis.”
McCain was hospitalized in December 2017 with a viral infection, his office said, and returned home to Arizona to recuperate. In April, the senator had surgery to treat an intestinal infection at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix. He had reportedly been recovering at his home near Sedona with his wife, Cindy.

In 1967 at the age of 31, John McCain was shot down on a bombing raid over Hanoi, captured and held prisoner by the North Vietnamese. It would become a defining experience for him. https://t.co/MWUwzAaVWj pic.twitter.com/9keAy1Gu7Q

Right wrong or indifferent he was a veteran and senator and he deserves that respect we may disagree with his politics but in the end thats what makes us who we are. We all have the right to agree or disagree.
