Senator John McCain versus President Donald Trump will be no more. The fight is officially over for the war hero who survived being a prisoner of war in Vietnam for five years. McCain finally succumbed to brain cancer at the age of 81 this past Saturday, August 25th 2018. Upon hearing of the late Senator's passing, the President tweeted, "My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of Senator John McCain. Our hearts and prayers are with you!" The President's tweet was completely unequivocally appropriate. In fact, the President's tweet was a rarity in that it was a perfect tweet for the moment. However, others such as Brit Hume thought differently. Brit Hume tweeted, "Still not a kind word about McCain himself." To Brit Hume and all others that criticized the President on his tweet, I say "I wouldn't have expected anything more."Why? The answer is quite simple. The President and the late Senator were arch enemies. Senator McCain fought the President at every turn. The two were not at all close, they were not bosom buddies, they weren't even friends. That being said, the President's tweet was exactly what should have been tweeted. Had the President sung praises of the late Senator it would have been nothing, but lies. Not to mention, that had the president said anything, but mere thoughts of prayers, his words would have been taken as phony and mainstream media would have attacked the President with harsh criticism.
That being said, the fight is over. The late Senator's fight against the President is over. So too, should the fight be over for all Republicans who had feelings of hate and contempt for the late Senator. As Twitter and Facebook users spew words of hate against the late Senator, I say stop the hate. Senator John McCain spent the last year of his life fighting against the President, while precious time with friends and family was wasted. Then again, as so it would seem, the late Senator chose to spend the last year of his life battling the President. It would appear that's exactly how the late Senator wished to end his life. Well, his fight is over and so too is the fight against him. Let all who hate and despise the late Senator, let him Rest In Peace. The man's fight against cancer, the President, and fellow republicans with whom he disagreed is over. So too, is the fight against him as well. Let us not fight against a ghost. Let us rise above the hate, and put it to rest. I do believe we Republicans have real battles to fight against real persons and elections to win.
