I voted for John McCain in 2008. To this day I believe he would have been a better President than Barack Obama. None of us ever has the perfect candidate or the perfect President- unless you're a democrat. However, over the years John McCain became more and more of curmudgeon and he staked out some strange perspectives. McCain was part of the cabal that strove to derail Trump's campaign and then his Presidency. McCain also heartily endorsed the effort by the IRS to destroy the Tea Party. I I watched as McCain's fellow POW's say that they did not think that McCain was himself over the last year or two.
While I salute McCain's service to the country, I am less eager to celebrate McCain's later political life. I find myself bemused as I watch democrats like Chuck Schumer lauding the guy they called "racist" in 2008. They speak glowingly of McCain only because he did not like Donald Trump. BTW, is the funeral over yet?
Meghan McCain used her father's funeral to take a shot at Donald Trump and in so doing became what she railed against.
"The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again, because America was always great."Andrew Cuomo didn't think so.
The NY Times took the opportunity to slam Trump for playing golf during the funeral services.
Not sure if the Times knows it, but Trump wasn't invited to the funeral.
There was no love lost between McCain and Trump. McCain, however, could have proven himself the bigger man and invited Trump to the funeral, but he didn't. McCain's pettiness was highlighted by his snubbing of Sarah Palin. He asked Palin to be on his ticket, did not properly prepare her and then abandoned her. Then he snubbed her.
That was low. McCain was no saint.
Did I mention obama spoke at McCain's funeral?
He often called McCain a racist in 2008
In 2012, democrats piled the racism charge on McCain
Several House Democrats on Friday attacked Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz) as a racist, a sexist, and said that his criticism of U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice amounted to mugging and battering.It was even worse at Aretha Franklin's funeral. That was a complete sh*tshow. A number of attendees used the funeral to score political points.
There is a clear, a clear in my opinion, sexism and racism that goes with these comments that are being made byunfortunatelySenator McCain and others, Congressional Black Caucus chairwoman Rep. Marsha Fudge (D-Ohio.) said in a press conference Friday on Capitol Hill.
And I strongly stand by that statement.
Michael Dyson made an ass of himself:

Look at the face on Bill Clinton - seems like he has his eye on something *interesting*...
And the last thing on his mind is John McCain!!
Louie looks more healthy than Jesse.
Maybe because it’s Aretha’s funeral.
The Pastor is in hot water after grabbing Arianna’s boob, and linking her name to a new menu item at Taco Bell. Classy.....
Hell, any small town dogcatcher would have made a better president than Obama.
The same cluelessness, tribalism, situational deafness and incompetence, with none of the bullshit... ...or the almost fatal damage to the Republic!
“...They speak glowingly of McCain only because he did not like Donald Trump. BTW, is the funeral over yet?...”
That is the only reason this political charade even happened. The radical left and its useful idiots (MSM) are playing this for every moment of hate speech they can drum up AGAINST TRUMP. McCain’s passing is nothing but a TOOL for them.
That would be Ariana Grande.
Everyone knows it's spelled R-E-S-T-E-C-P.
And they all showed up front and center at McCain's funeral.
Yeah. It feels like the Trumps getting involved, whether it was Trumps daughter in attendance, using the Air Force 2 to transport the casket, etc. shows more love for the departed than many of those invited.
More impressive is that Trump did it, knowing he’d get absolutely no credit for it.
The only ones lauding McCsin are Democrats and RINOs. I would love to ask if there was ever any Dem who crossed the aisle as often as McCain? Of course not! The day that happens would be the day we would find him late at night, shot in the back, on some DC street.
That's how Sharpton spelled it when talking about Trump. It was a dig on Sharpton.
When have the Left.. especially the Clintons.. ever Not use funerals for political gain? NEVER.
These funerals showed the !back of etiquette in America. Individuals using this moment of grieving for the loss or the celebration of moving on to God to express their petty obsessions was in totally poor taste. DONE!
I voted for McCain too - was sorry to see his funeral was used as a tool of hatred against Trump and Americans living in flyover... Guess McCain became a corrupt 'elite' in the end...
Wellstone Memorial as practiced in DC - “bipartisan” only in the loosest sense, this was an outpouring by those who either are the Deep State, or are regarded as “benign” by the Deep State.
Donald Trump is definitely considered to be toxic by the Deep State.
