U.S. senator John McCain dies at 81 after losing cancer battle

26 August 2018

Meghan McCain fired back in a tweet that Trump's attacks on her father "never stops being gross".

McCain, a US senator from Arizona for over three decades, had been battling glioblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer, discovered by his doctors in July 2017, and had not been at the US Capitol in 2018.

During a recent appearance by former Vice President Joe Biden, who is promoting his new book, "Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship and objective", the Democrat lauded Meghan's father and offered words of encouragement. McCain, Cindy McCain, said on twitter "My heart is broken". "He taught me how to live".

Eight years later, here was a man who openly professed his love of money, who had avoided military service because of a foot problem he later said had healed itself, a man who bragged about greasing the wheels for his NY real estate empire by donating to both Democrats and Republicans, a man who, in short, unapologetically flouted the long-established traditions of American politics and the presidency.

"My family and I are sad to hear of his death and my thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends tonight", Love said.

Cindy appeared on The View with her daughter in February, where she defended her husband against criticism from President Donald Trump.

US President Donald Trump led the tributes immediately after hearing the news, and wrote on Twitter: "My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of Senator John McCain. I am so lucky to have lived the adventure of loving this incredible man for 38 years", she said. "He passed the way he lived, on his own terms, surrounded by the people he loved, in the place he loved best". With his good-natured sales pitches for things like "McCain's Fine Gold" (featuring a cameo from Cindy McCain) and self-deprecating humor ("I'm a true maverick - a Republican without money"), the Senator held his own with comedy veteran Fey and generated plenty of laughs himself. "Our hearts and prayers are with you!"

Those close to the Republican Arizona senator reportedly started making arrangements for McCain's funeral in May, almost a year after he announced that he had been diagnosed with an aggressive and rare form of brain cancer.

"He's such a warm, wonderful man. John McCain was one of them", Schumer said. In a prepared speech that seemed directed at the president and his aides, McCain denounced the "spurious nationalism" of people who "would rather find scapegoats than solve problems".

Meghan added of her father: "He is so resilient in so many different ways", she added.
