The events, a sort of rolling metaphor for the contrast between the nation under Trump and McCain's hopes for the country was, in a way, "the last great gift that John McCain gave America", Lieberman said. Find out about his epic diss here. John called on us to be bigger than that. In addition to former President George W. Bush's eulogy, Obama called the honor of giving a speech at McCain's funeral a "precious and singular honor". John never treated everyone differently due to their race or color or gender.

Lieberman said the couple sat right behind him and when he spoke to them after the ceremony, he thanked them "as John's friend", and they seemed to have enjoyed the service. "To start with John liked being unpredictable, even a little contrarian..."

The most pointed criticism, however, came when Meghan triumphantly said to applause, "The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great". He told host Dana Bash that the main takeaway from the past week and from McCain's life is service to a cause greater than oneself.

Meghan McCain maintained a clear voice through her tears as she praised her father's devotion to his country and family.

Two of his top aides, White House chief of staff John Kelly and Defence Secretary James Mattis, flanked Cindy McCain as she placed the wreath at the memorial and joined the service. He was captured and endured 5 1/2 years as a prisoner of war.

At the cathedral, Cindy McCain broke down as opera singer Renee Fleming sang "Danny Boy", at the request of the music-loving late senator. McCain returned home in 1973 and as a result of his injuries in captivity, would never be able to move his arms above his shoulders.
