Mary Jo Pitzl and Dan Nowicki Arizona Republic Published 3:13 p.m. UTC Aug 25, 2018 From the moment Donald Trump announced his presidential ambitions, he and Sen. John McCain have been locked in a highly publicized feud, waged in media interviews, on Twitter, at rallies, and in official statements. Trump's condemnation of Mexican immigrants as "rapists" and "criminals" lit the fuse, with McCain saying he disagreed with the characterization. The war of words — over policy and politics — has sizzled ever since. In politics, the adage "never speak ill of the dead" applied also to the dying, including one’s enemies. But that sentiment has seemingly disappeared. While McCain may not deserve the abuse heaped on him, he certainly courted it, throwing as many punches as he took. Here's a running list of the insults, snubs and attacks by the president and his White House directed toward McCain: June 30, 2015: Two weeks after Trump announced … [Read more...] about Tweet by tweet: John McCain and Donald Trump feuded for years

WASHINGTON -- President Donald Trump will travel to Fort Drum today to sign a bill authorizing military funding that honors U.S. Sen. John McCain, a GOP rival the president has openly mocked and criticized. Trump plans to make public remarks in a Fort Drum hangar when he signs the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act. The $716 billion bill will increase pay for service members and boost spending on military equipment and weapons in fiscal 2019. White House observers will be watching to see if Trump pays tribute to McCain, 81, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee who has been battling brain cancer. Trump ignited a feud with McCain in 2015 during the presidential campaign when he said the Arizona senator was not a war hero. McCain, a former Navy fighter pilot, was held for almost six years as a prisoner of war after his jet was shot down in the former North Vietnam. McCain later dropped his support for Trump during the presidential election. In July 2017, … [Read more...] about Trump, critic of John McCain, will sign bill honoring him at Fort Drum
Yvonne Wingett Sanchez Arizona Republic Published 7:01 p.m. UTC Jul 19, 2018 Meghan McCain, the daughter of six-term Republican U.S. Sen. John McCain, is returning to Arizona to be with her father and mom, Cindy. Her return to Arizona, where she grew up, comes days after the family marked the one-year-anniversary of the senator's battle with glioblastoma. The senator has remained in Arizona since December as he battles the typically deadly form of brain cancer. "Going home to Arizona to be with my family to honor a year of tough fighting #glioblastoma by my father," said McCain, a political commentator and co-host of ABC's "The View." Meghan, 33, tries to return to Arizona every other week to spend time with her parents. Her last trip was over the Fourth of July weekend, where the family celebrated with friends and giant water slides. Meghan has used her national perch to urge more research into the deadly disease and humanized the anguish of families facing it. Just … [Read more...] about Marking one-year anniversary of John McCain’s cancer diagnosis, Meghan McCain comes home
Yvonne Wingett Sanchez and Ken Alltucker Arizona Republic Published 10:00 p.m. UTC Jul 13, 2018 One year has passed since U.S. Sen. John McCain was diagnosed with a type of aggressive brain cancer that remains incredibly difficult to halt. It is a mysterious — and complicated — milestone. To some medical experts who do not treat McCain, the one-year anniversary suggests he may have a less-aggressive form of this deadly cancer, known as glioblastoma. But it also could mean he is approaching the outer limits those with more serious forms can live. McCain, 81, and those closest to him have not publicly revealed his long-term medical prognosis, but Cindy McCain, in a lengthy statement Thursday to The Arizona Republic, thanked the medical professionals at Mayo Clinic in Arizona and the National Institutes of Health and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in the Washington, D.C., area, and the caregivers working with McCain at his … [Read more...] about It has been one year since Sen. John McCain’s brain cancer was discovered. What’s next?
