John McCain Reportedly Wants Barack Obama, George W. Bush to Give Eulogies

Succor to tyrants Mc Cain says that Trump calling unflattering news stories'fake news' regardless of their validity'is copied by autocrats who want to discredit and control a free press

McCain's "rocky relationship" with Trump famously began early in the 2016 GOP primary, when then candidate Trump said McCain was "not a war hero" in response to a disparaging remark the senator made about Trump's supporters.

He rebukes the President for praising worldwide "tyrants", discrediting the media, ignoring human rights and demeaning refugees.

The most moving passages in the book are McCain's reflections on his fate and his farewell to his family.

McCain is battling an aggressive form of brain cancer.

When running for the office, Donald Trump remarked of veteran John McCain that "He's a hero because he was captured, I like people who weren't captured".

Senator John McCain has been absent from the halls of Capitol Hill for months. "I like people that weren't captured", Trump told an Iowa crowd.

A stream of politicians, including former Vice President Joe Biden and former Sen.

McCain doesn't trust that Trump has America's best interests at heart.

The Arizona Republican Senator loathed Trump so much that he planned to dish him from beyond the grave, reports said.

Here is where McCain finally gets serious about talking about the current US president, who rates only passing mentions in the first 270 pages (there are roughly twice as many mentions of Putin).

Initially dubbed a "maverick" for standing up to his party when he ran for president in 2000 and 2008, McCain earned the title again for shooting down Trump's failed Obamacare repeal.

At the same time, McCain noted Trump's praise of Russian President Vladimir Putin and said he "seems just as smitten " with Chinese President Xi Jinping, leaders whom McCain accused of repression. Barack Obama, McCain said that Obama was not a Muslim as the senior citizen tried to claim. Look, this is a awful disease, and we appreciate all of the support by a lot of different folks who have come out and met with him over the past couple of weeks.

In the excerpt that follows, McCain makes a call for civility and for Americans to set aside their differences in favor of mutual respect.

When historians - or, really any of us - look back at President Trump's ascent to the presidency, they will identify many moments over the years, big and small, that could be identified as warning signs of the catastrophe to come.

McCain also renews his crusade to rein in the campaign finance excesses of the 1990s and beyond, a surge in political spending that beggars the imagination and threatens to upend the electoral system entirely.

McCain framed the problem as a bipartisan one.

"That's a social trend that is going to be very hard to turn around", McCain wrote.

"I leave behind a loving wife, who is devoted to protecting the world's most vulnerable, and seven great kids, who grew up to be fine men and women. Not one. It's been quite a ride".
