Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, who was Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)s running mate in the 2008 presidential election, has been excluded from his funeral. Breitbart News has independently confirmed an earlier report in People magazine, which reported that Palin was not sent an invitation, and was told through intermediaries to stay away from the ceremony.
McCain fundraiser Carla Eudy confirmed to People that Palin had not been invited possibly, People speculated, at the behest of the McCain family.
The news comes on the tenth anniversary of the date in 2008 when Palin was announced as McCains pick for Vice President.
Palin now joins President Donald Trump on the list of those barred from the funeral.
But unlike Trump, Palin never feuded with McCain and never criticized him.
When news broke on Saturday of McCains passing, Palin said: Today we lost an American original. Sen. John McCain was a maverick and a fighter, never afraid to stand for his beliefs. John never took the easy path in life and through sacrifice and suffering he inspired others to serve something greater than self.
John McCain was my friend. I will remember the good times. My family and I send prayers for Cindy and the McCain family.

McCain family keeping it as classy in death as he was in life.
She is the only reason I voted for your sorry ass, McCain!
Juan always was classless, petty and vindictive. No reason to change just because he’s dead.
I’ll take..Running mates who turn out to be assholes for $800.00 Alex.
All this week has done has further cemented his legacy as a petty, self-absorbed a-hole.
No "prayers for the family" from me. *spit*
One should not speak ill of the dead so let’s not comment at all on this absurdity.
It’s a shame the 2008 ticket was not flipped. Palin was a much better candidate.
And he/family chose who attends his funeral?
Invites to funerals? Im confused.
So glad this scumbag is gone. So glad.
I see it as: she was SPARED! She and Trump should hold a MAGA rally while the friends of McCain are caterwauling/dancing over the body.
Only say good or nothing at all about the dead.
McCain is dead.
A bitter, pathetic, and disgraced old man.
She wasn’t loyal. She tried to WIN the election!
Juan McLame, the Traitor to all that is decent in America, actually believed the Leftist press that our side was too sexist to vote for a woman.
I wouldn’t go to his funeral because with all the people there, I might get stage fright trying to piss on his grave.
Dem class shines through, again......
What can one say other than trash is trash!
Petty, vindictive John McCain is NOT a true hero, and NOT an honorable man. From his filthy mouth to his nasty temper to his bitter spirit, he is TRASH.
So many Democrats so little acceptabce of Republican. T the McCain family. Hang your heads in shame.
