Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, said Monday it's ridiculous" that Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., reportedly does not want President Donald Trump to attend his funeral, and hopes the war hero has a change of heart.
"I think it's ridiculous," Hatch told Politico. "Well, he's the president of the United States and he's a very good man. But it's up to [McCain]. I think John should have his own wishes fulfilled with regard to who attends the funeral."
McCains closest family members reportedly informed the White House that the current plan is for the funeral to be held at Washingtons National Cathedral, and Vice President Mike Pence to attend but not Trump, according to The New York Times.
McCain has been battling an aggressive form of brain cancer for more than a year.
Former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama have reportedly been asked to deliver eulogies at McCain's service.

Who says PDJT wants to go to a traitors funeral
Wait for the burial then p1ss on his grave.
Regardless of how it is characterized, it is completely in conformance with McCain’s personality.
Petty, vindictive, and corrupt.
A jerk to the bitter end.
Its weird that so many funeral plans are being made for a guy that hasnt retired from his job.
If I were DJT I wouldn’t even consider attending it.
You both said it.
and I have a suggestion for PDJT. Hold a rally with the song from Wizard of OZ. Just change the wording to; DING DONG THE TRAITORS DEAD
Oh I gotta t a preview for f what its going to be like on Lauras show last night. On and on about what a hero he was. I wont be able to watch FOX for a week.
I had no idea she was such a McCain fan, Ill be finding something else to do while her show is on.
Yes, it really is. Kind of creepy, in fact.
What kind of a douchebag plans his own funeral and says who can or cannot be there?
What makes him think anyone even wants to be there?
That’s what is so absurd about this whole thing. This guy is so self absorbed that he announces who he wants and doesn’t want at his funeral? He assumes the POTUS wants to attend his funeral?
I don’t care who attends McCains funeral, I care about when it happens.
Former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama have reportedly been asked to deliver eulogies at McCain’s service.
All this for a dirtbag Senator? Some people have a hugely inflated notion of John McCain’s overall importance.
National Cathedral?! Personally, I’d rather see his body dumped in a hog pen - though I’d feel bad for the hogs.
That'll make heads explode for two reasons
I’d be afraid to take this kind of bitterness and resentment to the other side...
Regardless of how it is characterized, it is completely in conformance with McCains personality.
Petty, vindictive, and corrupt.
McCain’s funeral = McCain’s burial
