  1. They don’t make Republicans like McCain anymore.

    • There is a photo of McCain and Graham in Lybia after they pushed for the overthrow (murder) of Gaddafi. Its nice…Lybia now has literal slave selling and terrorism…when under Gaddafi it didn’t. Love Graham and McCain. Real REPUBLICANS. 💙💙💙💙

    • C. CejaM You want to know an interesting fact? … McCain’s mother did not want him to run for president. Because, and I quote here…. “John doesn’t have the skills or knowledge to be a good president. He should stay in the Senate where maybe he can do some good.”

      There must be secret factories buried somewhere in China and Russia churning out RED PLASTIC FAKE REPUBLICANS like tRUMP.

    • Thank god that dont make them like him . Shame that people still look up to him when hes six feet under … doesnt that show you how wrong you are?

    • @Chas Burns I’m with you on that one 👍 and with elected Joe Biden in the white house we’re going to be going back to Syria for occupation

  2. Of whatever political ideology, we are missing a true gentleman right now. John McCain defended those without a voice, and corrected those with strong voices whenever their rhetoric served no good purpose.
    Respect and trust should be earned, my parents taught me a long while ago. Please, don’t defend the tyrants howling at unfairness toward themselves only to cause chaos and death in us all.

    • “Bomb bomb bomb bomb bomb Iran”…LOL funny neocon John McCain sang once, a man who loved wars. Such a great voice for the brown people in the middle east. Awwww.

    • McCain was a Great & an Exemplary American and Human Being …

      “Slow Down you move too fast. You’ve got to make this VICTORY last. #SHITHOLEtrump Lost & Will Soon Be GONE. I’m Enjoying this VICTORY & Feeling GROOVY !!!”

      “FEELING GROOVY !!!”

      Right after BIDEN is Sworn in, ON January 20th, I Will Be Screaming

      “LOCK trump UP !!!”


      #COVIDcovidCOVIDtrumpVIRUS !!!
      #TRAITORtrump !!!
      #SHITHOLEtrump !!!
      #SHITHOLErepublicans !!!
      #CRIMINALSallOfThem !!!!!!!!
      #VOTEthemOUT4EVER !!!

    John mccain was a patriot not a traitor like trump.

      I was just born in the Vietnam war I wasn’t old enough to surf but I would have when they came to draft me I was pregnant with my first child but my father served in the Iraq war at the age of 60 one of the oldest men still in the military active duty on the grounds in Afghanistan

    • Kathleen Parker | November 9, 2020 at 7:25 PM | Reply

      So please do not tell me that I don’t know about being an American the true American and what it means.. and after my father retired from the military he worked for Trump and Trump still to this day owes him money he’s crooked he will never pay his debts he’s a liar a bigot and a racist.

    • Kathleen Parker | November 9, 2020 at 7:31 PM | Reply

      You know I understand that situation that they were trying to take kids and put them in Vietnam I would have been against a ward too if I was old enough.. Caini was a real man and stood up for his fellow men. Trump all he did was wrong because his little gold spoon in his mouth when he was born he was broken well before any of us know him..

    • Michelle Autore | November 9, 2020 at 8:28 PM | Reply

      @Josef why are you addressing me? Kick rocks. My father, uncles, and brothers all served. Three in Nam. War is always terrible but you can’t blame our boys who serve.

    • @Michelle Autore For the WarPigs

  4. McCain had class, Trump doesn’t know what it means.

      @rtorres81rc Excuse me… don’t try to define me, when you know absolutely nothing about me at all. I happen to be a progressive, who worked to get Bernie Sanders elected. I’m also able to see the difference between politics and an individual’s personal character. Perhaps you should try doing the same.

    • @rtorres81rc I said he had class. I didn’t say that i agreed with him on anything especially his politics. I did appreciate that that he upheld ACA and stood up to the Republican party. I do think he was a hero enduring years of torture, because he wouldn’t leave his fellow detainees behind.

    • olivierlabusse | November 9, 2020 at 5:27 PM | Reply

      @rtorres81rc better than over 220000 corona deaths, so i also did not like bush but he knew how to behave as a president

    • @Suzanne Snow – You need to do more research about POWs and what McCain didnt do.

    • @Tessmage Tessera – Here what I was talking about with Affleck. I forgot Bernie Sanders was sitting right next to him.

  5. Now Trump is making stuff up to bring to court instead of conceding. He never made one good decision and that’s why he lost.

    • Trump is making $
      Begging his followers to contribute $ for legal fees, but $ is too pay off his campaign debts

  6. The GOP is an infected wound on America and STILL they are condoning Trump’s childish actions !

  7. John McCain came back to haunt the Don..😆

    Look 45 is not going to make a concession speech he’s scared mad these rep senators encouraging his behavior will pay a price for this transition will take place regardless

  9. Had he not passed,mccain would’ve been a great &noble president instead of trump

  10. Trump being a Malignant Narcissistic Sociopath cannot concede as it would be an injury to his self of superiority.

    McCain a hard time Republican knew the importance of the burden of power.

  12. Trump is not worthy to shine McCains boots! All of Trump’s money can’t buy class like McCain’s. #truepatriotmccain

  13. America First? It’s always been Trump and his family first. No surprises here.

  14. Pence just announced that Trump helped get the new vaccine here quicker the company that developed it is said it is a lie what’s new

  15. John McCain was a man with humor, Trump is not.

  16. I never gave McCain enough credit, until his concession speech and it was truly memorable.
    He was a gentleman and a true Patriot.

  17. Richard Kloepping | November 9, 2020 at 5:04 PM | Reply

    When John McCain passed away so did the Republican party Biden/Harris I think McCain will be proud.

  18. The people have spoken. It is time for Orange Caligula to concede.

  19. Trump is making sure there are no traces of grace in his legacy.

  20. The dummy is trying to avoid prison. He can’t draw this out for four years. He isn’t gracious and will never allow a peaceful transition.
