Just moments ago, it was announced that Senator John McCain has passed away from the aggressive form of brain cancer that forced his separation from the senate. McCain died peacefully in his Arizona home surrounded by family and friends Saturday night. Just yesterday, McCain’s camp revealed to the press that he had stopped all cancer treatments in order to live out the rest of his life as best as he could.
The president couldn’t be bothered to send out a message of unity to the nation, or even send his simplest best wishes when the news was announced, and as the hours ticked on, still nothing from the president, who just ignored the news all together.
Minutes after McCain’s death was reported Saturday, however, Trump sent out a two sentence response.
My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of Senator John McCain. Our hearts and prayers are with you!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 26, 2018
The response was so obviously written by a complete other person because it was kind AND spelled correctly. Trump has done nothing but target John McCain at every turn; even after it was announced that McCain had a highly aggressive and usually fatal glioblastoma.
Check out the video below of one such example:
And yet another:
Trump even went as far as to mock McCain’s psychical disabilities from being shot down in Vietnam, and his broken bones healing incorrectly. McCain was known for being unable to raise his hands above shoulder height due to these traumas:
Trump downright refused to ever apologize for his blatant and unprovoked attacks on McCain:
Time and time again, McCain responded to Trump’s childish ways with class and dignity, something in short supply in Trump’s White House:
And occasionally got in a few good hits:
The responses to Trump’s pathetic attempt at being human were insane. We saved the best reactions for you below:
