John McCain was a great man. RIP Senator. Respect from the UK.

Most nominees would lap up the populism here. McCain showed his statesmanship by standing up for his opponent.

What happened to us? All the things we have in common and we continue to magnify our differences, the U.S. could be unstoppable on every level if we could just treat each other with respect and compromise with each other. Now it's just party over country, any and every way to get one up on the other side even if it's through lying and misinformation.

You would never see Trump stand up for an opponent like this.

I wonder how Donald Trump would have responded to this. He would have probably said, "Yeah- he is an Arab- and he's not a US citizen!" John McCain is such a classy gentleman.

A bunch of racist assholes there was no proof to anything they said!~ He's an Arab...For fucks sake! They were scared that he was going to launch a race revolt like Whites would do given the situation Black people are in.

I would have loved for this man to be president! Way more than the disgrace that's there now! I hope i get the privilege in my lifetime to see another Obama or mccain as president. Truly a class act

White lady: "He's an Arab." McCain: "No, he's a good family man." If you don't see the problem with that entire exchange (which includes McCain's response), then you're probably white, stupid, and live in a bubble.

Once I saw this my respect for him went through the roof. I would have confidently voted for McCain rather than Hilary or Trump. RIP.

I was in denial about the Republican party for so long...I knew there were crazies within it, but I thought they made up the fringes. In retrospect though, the crazies took over the party long ago. John McCain was the last stand of class and decency against the wave that put Trump into office. This video is a perfect example of that. I know the guy wasn't perfect, but the country and the GOP was was better with him in it, and he gave more Americans real choices.

"He is not an arab he is a decent family man who is a citizen" ... as if arabs cant be that? Weird logic huh.
fuzzylogiceire (1 месяц назад)
He didn't say "He is not an arab". I think it's unfair to imply McCain thinks that, he was hurriedly taking the mic away from the woman and hushing her up. The woman was clearly a racist, yes; but that doesn't mean McCain thinks Arabs are bad.

McCain knew the election was rigged and there would be nothing to be gained from this, the guy wasn't dumb. Hilary was promised POTUS twice and twice she was hoodwinked by The Powers That Be. Once asked to step aside for Obama in 2012 with the promise of a for sure win 2016. And we know what happened next, yet she still doesn't seem to get it. It is a rigged system and these aren't choices in an election....they are selections by TPTB.

So an arab can't be decent?
WiseIsWise (3 месяца назад)
The point is that calling Obama an "arab" or "muslim" was meant to discredit his status as an American citizen. He's not making a comment on arabs, he's making a comment on people who try to delegitimize another persons citizenship and patriotism with xenophobic rhetoric like that.

Ill give him respect for many things, this moment among them. But he also unleashed Sarah Palin on us and gave the Tea Party nutters a real platform that lead us right o the 45 mess we are dealing with now. That is a lot of damage done in the name of political expediency at the time, so I cannot get all in on the McCain love-fest here.

Yes he served his country well, by bombing a light bulb factory and killing innocent people, in a useless war from above. like a coward.. Then after he crashed, and had his life SAVED by one of the people he was trying to bomb,, the Vietnamese broke him instantly, and made him recite the words they wanted him to,... Sorry you people need to look up the definition of the word Hero.. Hero's save lives,, Who's did he ever save? IN fact, his was the only life that was saved,, by the "enemy".. He died a multi-millionare, and a phony republican..
