JOHN MCCAIN MOCKS TRUMP IN STUNNING FUNERAL PLANS
Lest we all fall to the temptation to deify John McCain now that he has passed, this will start with some caveats. He has a great reputation, mostly in comparison to Donald Trump. But he was a diehard conservative and never a populist. He also voted for Trump’s agenda more than 80% of the time. But despite that, the two loathed each other. That speaks well of McCain, then and now. And in the now, we’ll have a look at just how far the Senator went in planning his funeral. His underlying theme besides what any man of his experience would want? An epic FU to Donald Trump.
IN BRUTAL REPUDIATION TO TRUMP, W. BUSH AND OBAMA WILL GIVE EULOGIES
So just how did McCain do this? It started several months ago when he learned he had a fatal prognosis. He then proceeded to call Barack Obama, which he didn’t often do. So why did he call? To ask Obama to give a eulogy at his funeral! But these two men were not close. They did not often talk. As former opponents in the contentious race for President in 2008, how could they be? Well, closer than McCain to Trump, that’s for sure. But then McCain called George W. Bush with the same request. Notably, both former Presidents agreed to give eulogies. These are two men McCain lost to as he did to Trump. So what’s the comparison? He thinks Obama and Bush are solid representations of bipartisan governing. It is also a statement to their decency and civility, all in contrast to Trump. Ouch.
EVEN THE PALLBEARERS ARE A STATEMENT AS MCCAIN RAISES ARM TO FLIP TRUMP THE BIRD
Trump is not involved in any of McCain’s memorial. So who else was invited besides Trump? What about the pallbearers? They include Joe Biden, Warren Beatty and a Russian dissident who was poisoned twice. Ouch, ouch and ouch. Putin tried killing Vladimir Kara-Murza twice, so his inclusion is a powerful statement to Trump and his relationship with Moscow. So you’ve got to give it to McCain. He’s going out on his terms. He’s also getting the last laugh. The service for John McCain will be on Sunday at the Washington National Cathedral. It will be a spectacle for sure.
