(RT News) — The death of John McCain caused mixed feelings and triggered a heated debate over the American values represented by the Republican. While some commended McCain’s patriotism, others questioned his moral integrity.
Following the announcement of 81-year-old John McCain’s death, the public took to social media to express their condolences and share mixed feelings about the Republican’s life and deeds.
Amid an endless outpouring of sympathies for the McCain family, some chose to challenge the massive praise McCain received posthumously.
When John McCain ran for President in 2008, the media called him sick in the head, unfit for office, and a white supremacist.
Now they all pretend to care about him, it’s a fake and sick game by sociopaths, they destroy a man when he opposes Democrats. Now they love him!

The entire establishment is in agreement that Mccain was a hero. Meanwhile almost every single conservative rightly abhors him for a multitude of reason such as helping the FBI frame Dt as a Russian agent, arming radical Islamists, asking the IRS to ruin conservatives etc etc

I have no sympathy to #McCain and he was no hero. War criminal yes. The guy was responsible for hundreds of AMERICANS deaths in Vietnam, giving up American positions while captured. #traitor #liberal oh and I served my country honorably don’t@ me if you have your thong on reverse

If you are a non-interventionist, you should already know that McCain was a war monger, in the pocket of military industrial complex and is responsible for hundreds of thousands of dead. He meddled for war in the Middle East and Ukraine. He was an evil, entitled, heartless man.
