Donald Trump's Tribute To John McCain Called Out By Fox News Analyst

Devin Booker John McCain Suns

The maverick and conservative who was, at times, willing to take on his own party died Saturday at a time when tumult and uncertainty looms in both the nation's capital and the Capitol and McCain's brand of straight-talking politics seems nearly to be slipping away.

In Washington, D.C., McCain will lie in state at the United States Capitol on Friday.

But sources say that Trump only tweeted anything at all so that people couldn't accuse him of ignoring the death of John McCain entirely.

President Donald Trump, whom Mr McCain had strongly criticised, tweeted his "deepest sympathies" to Mr McCain's family but did not comment on his life.

Plans taking shape called for McCain to lie in state Wednesday in the Arizona State Capitol on what would have been his 82nd birthday.

The next day, the procession will pass the Vietnam Veterans' Memorial and head to a funeral at Washington National Cathedral.

McCain will be buried at the U.S. Naval Academy Cemetery in Annapolis, Maryland.

Both include a more aerodynamic fuselage for less noise, faster speeds, and longer, more energy-efficient flight. These functions allow the drone to create moving time-lapse images when the drone covers a large distance.

The power of that story helped McCain fashion a role in American politics as the ultimate straight shooter-the man who would always tell the truth, and who wasn't afraid to buck his own party for the good of the country.

The Suns also sent out their condolences to McCain's family along with a genuine message on how the organization feels about the late senator's contributions to the nation.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Senator McCain's family and friends in these turbulent times. Some voices are so vibrant, it is hard to think of them stilled.

Bush and Obama had been McCain's political opponents, too, blocking his White House ambitions in 2000 and 2008, respectively. Trump made headlines in the summer of 2015 when he mocked McCain's military record at a political forum in Iowa, suggesting he wasn't a "war hero" because he had been held as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam for over five years.

Former Senator Norm Coleman, the head of the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC), said, "Senator McCain was a patriot and a fighter. He was a true giant in the Senate, and he will be deeply missed".

The office of Barack and Michelle Obama released a statement on the death of Mr McCain, in which Mr Obama wrote that despite all their differences, they shared "a fidelity to something higher - the ideals for which generations of Americans and immigrants alike have fought, marched and sacrificed".
