Arizona Senator John McCain is making funeral plans in the wake of his poor brain cancer prognosis. In one last attempt at bitterness, McCain does not want President Trump to attend the funeral services.
The Times on Saturday reported on the “memories and regrets” the senator shared with friends who have come to visit his Arizona ranch. The article included details about funeral plans for the ailing senator, who is suffering from an aggressive form of brain cancer.
“His intimates have informed the White House that their current plan for his funeral is for Vice President Mike Pence to attend the service to be held in Washington’s National Cathedral but not President Trump, with whom Mr. McCain has had a rocky relationship,” according to the Times.
As Proof noted the other day, even if Trump was invited, he would probably send Pence – which would also be a petty move, in my opinion. If you’re going out, doesn’t it behoove you to do so with class? Barring the sitting president from your funeral does nothing to help your legacy. In fact, it does the opposite. It makes McCain look like a an angry, bitter, petty child.
