Information on the cameo
John Sidney McCain III was born on August 29th, 1936, in Coco Solo, Panama. He is a prominent politician and statesman currently serving as the senior U.S. Senator for the State of Arizona. He is best known for running as the 2008 Republican Party nominee for President of the United States against Barack Obama. McCain drew controversy his way when he selected Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate and potential vice president, which eventually contributed to his failure in the election.
Though he identifies as a member of the Republican Party, McCain is also noted for breaking from the party's ideology when an issue is in direct conflict with his personal beliefs and experience. Having served in the Vietnam War and having been a prisoner of war therein, McCain has demonstrated support for veterans and causes that support them.
In mid-2017, McCain was diagnosed with a form of brain cancer and is undergoing treatment while he continues to serve in the US Senate.
Appearance in the rap battle
John McCain made a cameo appearance during Lady Gaga's second verse after she said the line, "History will regret you like J-J-J-John McCain!" McCain then raised his middle finger at the audience. He is shown using a mop with a mop bucket cart to contrast a monotonous labor with the high-profile job of United States President he had aimed for in 2008.
- McCain was mentioned in the previous battle when Abe Lincoln said, "I got my face on the side of a mountain; you voted for John McCain!", but he did not appear.
- He is the first character that EpicLLOYD portrayed to make a cameo appearance.
