Senator John McCain has died at the age of 81, according to the New York Times. The Republican congressman and two-time presidential candidate passed at 4:28 p.m. at his Arizona home on Saturday.
According to a statement from his office, Mr. McCain died at 4:28 p.m. local time. He had suffered from a malignant brain tumor, called a glioblastoma, for which he had been treated periodically with radiation and chemotherapy since its discovery in 2017. -NYT
McCain's family announced on Friday that the Senator had chosen to discontinue medical treatment for an aggressive form of brain cancer, a year after the Vietnam War hero announced his prognosis.

Any bets McCain wins re-election in the next Arizona Senate election simply because his rig of the election was so deep. Wink. Not sorry he is gone, more than once I wished he would pass on sooner, also wished his legacy of death would catch up and see him indicted for his many many crimes.
The Truth About John McCain #ExpelMcCain
Trump was right about McCain:https://www.counterpunch.org/2015/07/20/the-horrors-of-john-mccain-...
The race-baiting panjandrum of Manhattan, Donald Trump, is currently taking flak from the media and politicians for deprecating John McCain’s status as a “war hero”. Trump’s rhetoric is typically bombastic, but this time he may have struck a nerve. Here is a piece that Cockburn and I wrote in 1999 about a psychiatric evaluation of McCain underwent while a prisoner of war in North Vietnam. The psych0logical portrait drawn by Spanish psychiatrist Fernando Barral is that of a deeply narcissistic personality, cold, hardened and largely devoid of human empathy, a man who seemed to view the bombing of civilian populations as a kind of sport. These aggressive personality traits have also characterized his nasty political career.–JSC
Earlier this week notorious war hawk US Senator John McCain (R-Az) died from brain cancer. While the liberal and conservative establishments are sending their regards, Geopolitics Alert instead compiled a list of reasons why we don’t care about McCain.
The list is, of course, a history of all the instances McCain has called for US-led intervention around the world. There’s clearly a long history here, so Geopolitics Alert has compiled the most blatant examples from Europe to Asia. We’ll start with the obvious wars first.
McCain died from a Glioblastoma Brain Tumor - there's a surprise.
I doubt McCain died. I think he knew he was going to be indicted for his many crimes, faked his tumor, death and is now sipping drinks on one of Bush Co. many compounds in South America.
I'm with you, Ken. Just another fraud / actor on the worldstage playing his role for all to limbic on down to.
I've heard a rumour to that effect. But is there any substance to it?
If anyone has any leads or evidence that McCain lives, I'd be very grateful if they could share! Thanks
