John McCain, a war hero and towering figure in U.S. politics known for reaching across the aisle in an increasingly divided nation, died Saturday following a battle with brain cancer.A rare Republican critic of Trump, McCain accused the president of "naivete," "egotism" and of sympathizing with autocrats. He cast a decisive vote last year that killed Republican attempts to repeal Barack Obama's health care reforms, something Trump never forgave. All living former U.S. presidents lined up to praise McCain's deep integrity. McCain spent more than three decades in the Senate, looming large in debates over war and peace and the moral direction of the nation.McCain had been away from the Senate floor since December, remaining at his ranch for treatment of glioblastoma – the same form of brain cancer that took the life of another Senate giant, Democrat Ted Kennedy, in 2009 .Praise for McCain however was not universal: comments on the far-right Breitbart website slammed him as a RINO (Republican In Name Only) for voting against the Obamacare repeal and for criticizing Trump.
