McCain was a FRAUD.

This is Carol McCain, John McCain's first wife. She was not invited to McCain's Arizona funeral either. McCain adopted his first wife Carol's two children, Douglas and Andrew, after the couple married in 1965 and a year later they had their only child together: Sidney. All of the McCain children attended his funeral service in Arizona, including Carol's children, Douglas and Andrew. The mother of three of his children, Carol, was not invited, and neither was Sarah Palin, his VP candidate in 2008.
Two years after marrying, John became a prisoner of war and was not released back to his family until 1973. In turn, Carol had to raise her sons and the couple’s daughter for an estimated six years, on her own. When McCain returned home from Vietnam in 1973 after being captured and held as a prisoner of war for five years, he found out about a car accident Carol had three years earlier that left her badly injured.
He left her because she was disfigured and started dating Cindy Hensley while still married to Carol. McCain and Carol were divorced in 1980 and, that same year, McCain married Cindy, who was 17 years younger. Ronald and Nancy Reagan were both appalled at McCain for what he did to his first wife. Carol McCain was Director of the White House Visitors Office during the Reagan administration.
This is the guy the media is now holding up as a saint? I think not.

A reminder that John McCain's Foundation was funded by the defacto head of the DNC, George Soros. Why? Because Soros saved him from disgrace during the scandal called the Keating Five.
McCain and Soros became friends after McCain was exposed as a member of the “Keating Five” during the savings and loan (S&L) industry scandal during former President George H.W. Bush’s administration. As the S&L bank chairman, Charles Keating paid $1.3 million to bribe five members of Congress, including McCain, to interfere with government regulators on behalf of the savings bank. McCain is the only member of the "Keating Five" who is still serving on Capitol Hill. The other four retired in 1990s: U.S. Sens. Alan Cranston, D-Calif.; Dennis DeConcini, D-Ariz.; John Glenn, D-Ohio; and Donald Riegle, D-Mich.
Cranston, who received the most severe rebuke from the Senate Ethics Committee, died in 2000. McCain was deemed to have demonstrated "poor judgment" in meeting with the regulators. McCain took another public blow when The Arizona Republic in 1989 reported that McCain and his family had vacationed at Keating's Bahamas retreat and that his wife and father-in-law in 1986 had invested nearly $360,000 in a Keating shopping-center development. Keating was tried for fraud and eventually served time in prison.
In 2012, McCain turned over nearly $9 million in unspent funds from his failed 2008 presidential campaign to a new foundation bearing his name, the McCain Institute for International Leadership. Critics say the institute’s donors and McCain’s personal leadership in the organization’s exclusive “Sedona Forum” bear an uncanny resemblance to the glitzy Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) pay-to-play schemes.
The institute has accepted contributions of as much as $100,000 from billionaire liberal activist-funder George Soros and from Teneo, a for-profit company co-founded by Doug Band, former President Bill Clinton’s “bag man.” Teneo has long helped enrich Clinton through lucrative speaking and business deals.and has ties to John Kerry and Huma Abedin. An inspector general probe suggested Huma Abedin leveraged her State Department job to benefit a consulting firm called Teneo Strategies while Abedin was simultaneously employed by the Department of State, Teneo, and the Clinton Foundation, with a security clearance, BTW.
In addition, McCain's institute has taken at least $100,000 from a Moroccan state-run company tied to repeated charges of worker abuse and exploitation. The McCain group has also accepted at least $100,000 from the Pivotal Foundation, which was created by Francis Najafi who owns the Pivotal Group, a private equity and real estate firm. The Pivotal Foundation has in the last three years given $205,000 to the National Iranian-American Council (NIAC), which has been a vocal advocate for the Iranian nuclear deal the Obama administration negotiated.
NIAC President Trita Parsi has long been an advocate for Iran, including demanding in May 2017 that President Donald Trump and officials in his administration “cease questioning the integrity of a (nuclear) deal.” The NIAC is “Iran’s lobbyists in Washington.”
“This is a very real conflict of interest,” Craig Holman, a government affairs lobbyist at Public Citizen. “This is the similar type of pattern we received with the Clinton Foundation in which foreign governments and foreign interests were throwing a lot of money in the hopes of trying to buy influence.”
