McCain, who carried out his duties even while enduring treatments, was a man who opposed Mr. Trump, even as the economy flourished and the facts of his success were becoming clear. Many are saying that the sour grapes (McCain lost big time in his presidential run) continued even after death.
As all of this took place, McCain made it clear that he wanted “President’s George W. Bush and Barack Obama” to eulogize him and, considering his RINO stances while alive, those two are a far better choice, in reality.
Also, NBC News has reported that “McCain’s former associate, Rick Davis,” said a “final message” about the former P.O.W. He said that America was weaker when “we hide behind walls, rather than tear them down, when we doubt the power of our ideas rather than trust them to be the great force for change they have always been.”
Many people think this kind of lukewarm conservatism has hurt the nation greatly. It could be one of the main reasons that the support for Mr. McCain during the election was so tepid.
After all, he had promised to “build the darned fence” and lied to his constituents about it by becoming terribly soft on the border.
Therefore, Davis added, “The president will not be, as far as we know, attending the funeral. That’s just a fact.”
The truth is, this is a better ending than if President Trump would attend.
It’s possible no one wants to see Donald Trump quickly mentioning the good that McCain did (like wanting to stay out of meddling in Lebanon during the Reagan years) and acting like the two had great respect for one another when that simply was not the case.
