Why so much hatred for McCain ? It is unwarranted.

Look Im a Trump supporter and he is allowed to not like McCain. They had their own reasons for hating each other.

I have no reason to not like McCain . The guy spent over 5 years as a POW . He deserves respect on that alone.

While I disagreed with him while he was alive , even when he ran for POTUS I would never say he wasnt a hero.

5 years is a hell of a long time .

McCain you have my respect.

RIP sir..

Yes, McCain served in the American military and yes he was a POW for 5 years. Great. That does not mean that he can't be judged by the many other horrible things that he did.

I served in the military and I definitely don't say to anyone that doesn't like something I am doing or have done< "you can't say that! I am a veteran! I deserve your respect!"

That is basically what McCain wanted people to do and so do his supporters who are strangely more democrats on the political stage than not.

Also, due to his bizarre relationships with the Bush and Clinton families, I don't think that he was on the up and up morally speaking anyway.

Dig into USS Liberty and USS Forrestal.....He isn't as clean as some would like to make him........However, I don't believe a funeral service needs to be colored by that stuff.

Many here have despised McCain long before Trump came along.

America is a better place without him.

He was a neo con war monger, that’s why. Not only regarding Iraq and Iran, but he was instrumental in organizing the militant anti-Assad fighters in Syria, including funding and arming them. To date several hundred thousand people are dead, and something they don’t tell you is almost half the deaths are due to anti Assad forces. And that war is a proxy war for power and always has been.

What I can’t understand is how someone can both know these things AND apologize for him. I see these types of people as diabolical monsters. Some of them such as Bush Jr should be on trial for war crimes. Same with Kissinger.

That answer your question?

War mongering sociopaths shouldn’t be rehabilitated in death, sorry. Do you do that for Stalin? Or a serial killer? Or a mafioso.

What about all the dead civilians from he and his ilk’s wars?

Is not conspiracy, is documented. Is about how McCain used his political power to shut down MIA investigations. No one really knows why.

It is a far cry from giving a respectful service to immortalizing someone. MSM is immortalizing him.....I just suggested that a service should be just respectful.

If you talk bad about Trump his supporters will come after you with pitchforks and tiki torches.

I never got that feeling from McCain. Maybe from others, but not McCain himself. I would say he invoked his experience more in arrogance than for pity... as in, "I know best because I've been there and done that," as opposed to, "Don't criticize poor little me."

Yeah I wouldn’t myself disrupt such a ceremony, and for the family let them have a peaceful one. But it is deeply problematic that everyone and their mother in the media is singing his glories.

I just find it funny how many people suddenly turned on him because him and Trump clashed on a few things. Ignoring the fact that McCain's voting record shows he sided with Trump on over 90% of the issues.

I guess the phrase Cult45 is pretty much on point. If you disagree with Cheeto Jesus on one thing you're labeled an apostate.

Equally stupid is how a bunch of “liberals” now love McCain and Bush jr because they criticized Trump at some point. I hate everyone, lol.

Those tiki torches are on sale for 2$ in my area...

He has my respect cause i try to understand the paths this world can put a man on and most of them are not accepted by most. I blame myself as much as i blame John.

Heroes die every day. On average, 22 vets commit suicide, daily.

Yeah, McCain was a vet and a POW.

But I'm getting sick and tired of this week-long funeral.

When is the gnashing of teeth and funereal wailing going to begin? Is Chuck Shummer going to toss himself on the coffin and openly weep?

I can respect his service, and not respect his political career!

I have a hard time forgetting his selfies with people that were slaughtering innocents, and him saying they are a good bunch of guys. (paraphrase obviously)
