United in their distaste of President Donald Trump, former CIA Director John Brennan praised the late Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., 81, for “strong decency and respect toward others . . . as a shining example for all Americans.”

Just one day before McCain’s death Saturday, Brennan praised McCain for breaking from the Republican Party to stand up against the president.
