    Collins and Hunter were the first and second Congresspersons to endorse Donald Trump's candidacy.

    I mean, his diagnosis was always terminal.

    But hey, he got to prevent his seat from being up for 2 years.

    I wonder if that's why he discontinued the treatment. Perhaps he knew that the end was near?

    A tragic loss, really.

    I didn't agree much with McCain's politics, but he was a patriot and he served his country honorably. History will remember him more fondly than the self-aggrandizing con man in the Oval Office now.

    RIP McCain.

    That is usually what happens.

    Just remember, his last act was to cling onto his seat to avoid a special election. Bypassing a special election for 2 years.

    It is a sad loss, make no doubt.

    Agree with his politics, or not, McCain is a person. Patriotic to the point of enduring permanent damage from torture for his country. Despite having debilitating cancer, he was one of the few republicans in Washington to stand up to Trump.

    It's easy to hate on someone we disagree with, and easier yet to forget they're more than their political stances. I hope, and pray his family get through this ok.

    McCain should have been the Republican nominee in 2000 instead of W. He would have beaten Gore and won the popular vote in the process. He would have been a better president than W.

    I'm not sure war with Iran instead of Iraq would have been better.

    On FOX News, newly minted Trump bootlicker candidate for governor of Florida Ron DeSantis says not to 'monkey up' the state by electing black Democratic competitor (video).

    A white person referring to a black man as 'articulate' is also the classic racial dog whistle of surprise.

    David Bossie, who referred to a black guest on FOX News as 'out of his cotton-picking mind', is also a member of DeSantis campaign team.

    I had to laugh at Fox News having a panel of 4 white people talking about this.

    Does Fox even have anyone who isn't white employed?
