Beautiful tweet from Obama about McCain. Trump hasn't commented.




Text:
John McCain is an American hero & one of the bravest fighters I've ever known. Cancer doesn't know what it's up against. Give it hell, John.

He's petty and holds a grudge.

McCain waivered on his campaign, was highly critical of him at various times and ultimately was responsible for the Steele Dossier being turned over.

He might not go beyond the generic written statement his office put out.

but don't promote falsehoods. Obama was the first to make a statement, but Trump made a statement as well. I am in France reading it on French news, so I find it hard to believe you can't find it in the US.

"Donald Trump, avec qui les relations étaient tendues, a dans un communiqué déclaré que le sénateur avait "toujours été un combattant".

"Melania et moi envoyons nos pensées et prières au sénateur McCain, à Cindy et toute sa famille. Remettez-vous vite", a-t-il dit."

59. The point is that, at the time they wrote this, Trump hadn't made a statement

He's quick to tweet about any and everything. You hear that kind of news and you stop everything to be one of the first to say something. When I was on Twitter last night, I saw four statements in a row from Obama, Hillary, Bill and Ana Navarro. I went to see if Trump had said anything yet and he hadn't. So, we don't need to know that you oppose Trump, but we also don't need a lecture about something that hadn't happened yet. People aren't fortune tellers.

at least John McCain has excellent health insurance which gives him and his family the ability to deal with his condition and not the medical bills. Very few other Repugs deserve that kind of piece of mind since they are willing to rip it away from millions.
