He has decided to discontinue medication for brain cancer.

He may very well pass any day now.

Not sure but I hope someone does.

Truthfully, Iran and North Korea have no business getting nuclear weapons.

They are both certifiably insane.

an aide will tweet out 'thoughts & prayers' possibly on @POTUS rather than Trump's own feed

McCain has said he doesn't want President Trump to attend his funeral. The president should really troll him and show up anyway. With hookers!

The Twitterman isn't fit to lick the sweat of John McCain's balls.
It would be a pleasure to watch the Twitt show up at Johns funeral and be turned away at the door.
I don't agree with everything that John McCain has pushed but I do believe that he has the interest of this country in his heart. He is one of the last people that are the embodiment of the GOP.

mccain and iraq war..

http://www...ecord-on-iraq-eager-to-attack/

voted with trump like 90% of time

“Thank God for the Saudis and Prince Bandar, and for our Qatari friends,” [after/because they had indiscriminately armed al-nusra/qaeda and isis]

"bomb bomb bomb bomb bomb iran"

"get out of here you low-life scum" [of anti war protestors of kissinger]

"i will always hate the gooks"

“At least I don’t plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt.” [wife]

“Do you know why Chelsea Clinton is so ugly? Because Janet Reno is her father,” [at age 18]

i could go on awhile..

but sure.. mccain was great guy with heart of gold.. and not a freaking disaster to human life on earth.. and deserved love he always got from press.. and feud with oh-so-terrible trump just proves it

"the worst thing he did was make Sarah Palin famous"

Palin is such a disappointment. She could have been somebody. All she had to do was hire some advisors and study the issues. Just put in a little work. Instead she'll be appearing on 'Teen Mom OG' with her daughter Bristol.

She coulda had class. She coulda been a contender. She coulda been somebody, instead of a bum. She coulda been a less retarded Trump, but she was just too lazy.

now is the time to scrutinize Trumps reaction and how he will be too much of a petty child to say any kind word about McCain... with possibly more tasteless jokes from his disgusting associates

plus maybe some remembrance of McCains life

the media clearly readies these pieces ahead of time, I wonder if anyone asks to see their death reel before they go

He sends his deepest respect and his prayers and thoughts are with him.



Interesting point. McCain made his last vote on December 7.

no, a staffer is claiming Trump's respects/thoughts/prayers are with McCain's family

& Trump probably made sure the staffer didn't say anything positive about McCain

Why would we need to peddle kind words for the enablers of war criminals?

Congress consistently has an approval rating of sub-20, with special enmity going to career politicians, but every time one of the fuckers dies we fall right back into hero worship.

Forwyn had to post his retarded thoughts twice as if we needed a double daily dose of stupid and tactless retardation.

Noone subscribes to your cartoony Pseudo-libertarian view of the world (Look at me, I voted Libertarian! But I also believe every lie Fox News and Breitbart tells me). Real men that get things done have to make compromises sometimes. And they make mistakes of which McCain made many but at least he learned from them instead of doubling down on stupid like it seems every Republican does these days.

John McCain was a good man and a good public servant. He will be sorely missed.

every time Trump claims McCain stopped the Obamacare repeal he's lying (shocker)

that was the 'skinny' repeal, & McCain's as well as some others had only agreed to say yes on condition the House did NOT pass it

one article about it, if people forgot:

presumably McCain realized how stupid that was and changed his mind

McCain deliberately killed it. He voted for it in committee and then killed it on the floor which killed it permanently for the year because of reconciliation rules.

A dramatic way to end the bullshit that would've happened had retards like Rugian gotten their way which would've been tens of thousands unnecessarily dead, millions denied coverage, and higher prices for everyone except the rich or upper middle class.

Of course Trump made sure the higher prices for everyone happened anyways but that shit can be undone later as can the retard tax cuts.

Most of us don't suddenly do a complete 180 on virtually every political issue though. Even if the coming of the IRL Mule jolted him into hating white people, that still doesn't explain an abrupt jumping ship when it comes to things like fiscal policies.

Hot Rod, you mistake peoples feeling toward McCain. Many disagreed with some of his policies. Most still respected him as a man who put country before himself or his party.

That is something that you, IMO, will never see from the Twitterman.

I just do not understand how anyone cannot see what the President is doing.

Press Conferences almost every single day. Inviting the Press to see a cabinet meeting or a phone call to another world leader. Bring Billions in taxes and our country's business' back from overseas. The biggest tax overhaul in United States History.

And on and on and on...

I never took a 180 on anything as Rugian the Retard believes. Exploding deficits, unfunded tax cuts, higher healthcare costs for 95% of Americans are something I've always opposed.

Just because you're so retarded and trapped by your tribalism that you follow Fox News and Breitbart blindly into the far, far right; doesn't mean the ones of us with some actual brains and beliefs has to.

"Press Conferences almost every single day."

Common for modern presidencies.

"Inviting the Press to see a cabinet meeting or a phone call to another world leader"

Common practice. We've seen this in other administrations.

"Bring Billions in taxes and our country's business' back from overseas. The biggest tax overhaul in United States History."

Which has not done any significant benefits to the country.

we don't see the cabinet meetings, we see the beginning with the 'who would like to praise me next?' fucked up shit then cameras are kicked out

we saw 2 negotiation meetings (guns, DACA) where Trump demonstrated no knowledge of anything, agreed w/ every person even though they had conflicting desires, and then nothing ultimately was achieved

Bring Billions in taxes and our country's business' back from overseas. ???

Which business's have returned????

Harley is shutting down a plant here and moving it to Europe.

The textile industry is still in Asia and central America.

The stupid Twitterman wants to ban German Cars here. Doesn't know that BMW's biggest plant is in Greenville SC. Which also exports all over the world from there. Mercedes has plants here. VW has plants here.

What industry has moved back here???? Please list them.
