Posted on 08/24/2018 11:53:08 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
American political leaders of both parties are paying tribute and offering prayers for ailing Arizona Sen. John McCain, but President Donald Trump has so far been silent.
Neither the White House nor the president has yet spoken out after McCain's family announced Friday that the former prisoner of war and longtime public servant would no longer seek medical treatment for an aggressive form of brain cancer.
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are praising McCain and offering prayers for his family, as is Mitt Romney, the GOP's 2012 presidential nominee....

Hes not dead. Those vultures are just trying to outdo each other beating their chests and rendering their garments.
As Mark Steyn might say...”The Fakiest, Fakest, Fake news”!
Better to be criticized for silence than for being a hypocrite. . . . IMHO
here is my wishes for McCain..after what he did to Sarah Palin, her family, and being a gutless traitor, I hope when he meets his maker he repents for what he did, doubt it though
Trump silent.....as he should be. McCain stabbed him in the back. Trump does not forget. MAGA.
Utah Morons are going to elect Milt Romney to replace McCain as the Designated Trump-hater.
McShame? Is that old POS still vertical?
If Trump said anything it'd be seen as hypocritical.
Everybody has to chime in on this.
McCain is so wonderful that even the Pope is going to declare him a saint before he is dies.
McCain is just pimping his death.
Why doesn’t the old bastard take his dying routine on the road? A media blitz. The Sunday morning talks shows.
“I’m dying! Look at Me!”
This being the case, President Trump is correct in keeping silent. All these other morons are just sucking up to this dog and pony show.
Just die already McCain. Then the Trump White House will issue a polite press release expressing sympathy, thoughts and prayers and all that baloney.
McCain already said he didn’t want Trump at funeral. Why should Trump say anything, he will just get blasted by McCain.
Only if he’s able to sit up in bed
He’s not dead. Isn’t this a bit presumptuous? Cold cold people.
Hopefully the Navy is building garbage scows or target barges so they can name one after him. The current USS John S. McCain is in honor of his father and grandfather, not him.
But he still won’t step aside so someone can actually represent AZ.
My democrat Rep took the opportunity to praise McTurd for all his greatness...tells you all you need to know.
Man I hope President Trump doesn’t praise this looser....just go away.
Well, aren’t they really in the same party?
