Barack Obama on John McCain’s Death: “Few of Us have been Tested the Way John Once Was”

President Barack Obama issued a heartfelt statement of condolence on Sen. John McCain’s death from brain cancer: “Few of us have been tested the way John has.”

President Obama’s full statement on John McCain’s death: “John Mccain and I were members of different generations, came from completely different backgrounds, and competed at the highest level of politics. But we shared, for all our differences, a fidelity to something higher — the ideals for which generations of Americans and immigrants alike have fought, marched and sacrificed.We saw our political battles, even as a privilege, something noble, an opportunity to serve as stewards of those high ideals at home, and to advance them around the world. We saw this country as a place where anything is possible — and citizenship as our patriotic obligation to ensure it forever remains that way.”

“Few of us have been tested the way John once was, or required to show the kind of courage that he did. But all of us can aspire to the courage to put the greater good above our own. At John’s best, he showed us what that means. And for that, we are all in his debt. Michelle and I send our most heartfelt condolences to Cindy and their family.”

Presidents Obama and George W. Bush will deliver eulogies at McCain’s funeral. Donald Trump is not welcomed.

Twitter completely eviscerated Sen. Lindsey Graham after he tweeted that he lost a very dear friend.
