John McCain rival claims pre-death announcement was a political ploy

Sen. John Mc Cain in 2008

McCain was 'a committed hawk who pecked at Russian Federation out of principle, ' Rossiya 1 reported on its main news show on Sunday evening, devoting more than four minutes to the senator's life. The Arizona Republican, whose relationship with President Trump has always been fraught, died on Saturday at the age of 81 after battling brain cancer.

He will be buried in a private service at the US Naval Academy at Annapolis, where his service to his country began six decades ago, at a cemetery overlooking Maryland's Severn River.

A senior political analyst for Fox News, Donald Trump's favourite news channel, has pointed out the President's tribute to John McCain did not actually contain a tribute to the man himself. "Our hearts and prayers are with you!"

Arizona law requires only that Gov. Doug Ducey name a replacement who is a member of McCain's Republican Party and who will fill the seat until the next general election in 2020. Since McCain's passing, Trump originally only sent a single tweet sending his condolences to McCain's family - a message that also failed to label the late senator a hero.
