John McCain was a US senator from 3 January 1987 until his death on 25 August 2018.[1]

During the 2016 United States presidential election campaign, Donald Trump – who did not serve in the military himself and avoided the draft through a series of deferments – attacked John McCain's record of service and said the Vietnam veteran and former prisoner of war is "not a war hero" because he was captured:

"I like people that weren't captured," Trump said.[2]

YouTube video

Following his comments in February 2017 that Donald Trump's administration was in "disarray", a video entitled "The truth about John McCain" was published on Facebook on 1 March. The video, which criticised McCain over his war record in Vietnam, the money he is said to receive from George Soros, the McCain Institute funded by Saudi Arabia and his association with the terror group ISIS, had been viewed 1.2 million times and shared by 28,715 users by 17 March 2017.[3]

The New York Times has denied the identity of the man pictured left with John McCain, stating that "The [false] rumors are based partly on images of a Syrian fighter who resembles Mr. Baghdadi, seen in photographs with Mr. McCain".[4]

JFK Assassination

On live US television, during the 2008 presidential election campaign, Republican Party candidate John McCain referred to the JFK assassination as "the intervention". His exact words were: "... the way Barry Goldwater and Jack Kennedy agreed to do, before the intervention, the tragedy at Dallas" immediately followed by a hand to nose and look away from the audience gesture.[5]

Death

In May 2018, CNN reported McCain did not want President Trump at his funeral.[6]

13 January 201228 April 2014The plaintiffs challenged the 2012 NDAA contending that indefinite detention on "suspicion of providing substantial support" to groups such as al-Qaeda and the Taliban was so vague as to allow unconstitutional, indefinite detention of civilians based on vague allegations. The Court of Appeals struck down an initial agreement, and the US Supreme Court concurred, arguing that the plaintiffs could not prove they would be affected by the law, so had no standing to contest it.
