John Sidney McCain III (August 29, 1936 - August 25, 2018) was the Republican presidential nominee in the 2008 United States election. He was also a senior United States Senator from Arizona from 1987 to 2018.
Ghost, while hosting the True Conservative Radio broadcast, held a highly negative opinion of McCain. He called him out as not being a 'True' conservative, and cited him as a herald of the downfall of the Republican party (along with Sarah Palin). He began referring to him as John "Turncoat" McCain. In True Capitalist Radio days, Ghost has also called out John McCain as a warmonger because of his aggressive foreign policy and RINO because of the above mentioned lack of 'True' conservatism.
Ghost would later repeatedly refer to the 2008 nomination of John McCain as the Republican Party candidate as a "coronation", citing this as the moment when he changed his political affiliation from conservative or Republican to capitalist (hence the rebrand of his show from True Conservative Radio to True Capitalist Radio), believing that the Republican Party had betrayed its values by selecting John McCain.
Despite this, Ghost has stated that he does respect McCain as a fellow Vietnam War veteran, knowing that life as a prisoner of war must have been rough. Later on, with his return in 2016, Ghost changed his mind about this. Ghost came to believe that McCain had used his high ranking father as a bargaining chip during his days as a prisoner of war and given up sensitive information to Vietcong in an attempt to save his own skin. He later tweeted out McCain's broadcast when he was a POW in Vietnam, calling him a traitor to the US. He became enraged with him and other GOP turncoats after they turned their backs on Donald Trump after a tape containing lewd remarks about women was leaked.
Ghost was rejoiced by the news his death on August of 2018 and reacted with glee on Gab, hoping that "Satan is raping McCain with a hot pitch fork right about now", and then celebrating it on the next episode of the show.
