McCain friends say Meghan McCain reflects father's character

Washington bids farewell to John McCain

Washington bids farewell to John McCain

John McCain spoke at Xavier as part of his 2008 election bid.

Former presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush made veiled references to Mr. Trump, but, co-host on ABC's "The View", didn't mince words.

The procession left the Naval Academy's chapel Sunday afternoon following a memorial service for McCain.

President Trump reportedly arrived at the golf course just as the funeral was getting underway. John McCain's funeral, and while some people, including the president, were bothered by it, Senators Joe Lieberman and Lindsey Graham have made a decision to come to her defense.

A new Washington Post/ABC poll showed Trump's disapproval rating at an all-time high of 60 percent. "I am humbled to have known Senator McCain, and our prayers remain with his family and the entire country as we mourn this great loss". The two former presidents were personally selected by McCain to offer their respects, and former president Jimmy Carter reflected on the "steadfast integrity" that governed John McCain's personal and political conscience. McCain was Bush's primary challenger in the 2000 election.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had no problem repeating the praise of McCain as "an American patriot", and noted that his lifetime of public service and sacrifice to his country were "an inspiration to millions".

"So much of our politics, our public life, our public discourse can seem small and mean and petty, trafficking in bombast and insult and phony controversies and manufactured outrage", Obama said in a not-so-veiled nod to Trump. "John and I, as insane as this sounds, we were friends".

Sunday's ceremony concluded a week of services for the senator, who died on August 25 at the age of 81 from brain cancer.

"Perhaps above all John detested the abuse of power, could not abide bigots and swaggering despots", said Bush, as Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner sat in attendance.

White House chief of staff John Kelly, Defense Secretary James Mattis and National Security Advisor John Bolton would represent the administration at his services, he added.

"At the end of the day, the funeral was reflective of what everyone was thinking", Copeland, who a former Democrat and the president and founder of Urban Conservative Project, Inc., told Hill.TV's Krystal Ball and Buck Sexton, on "Rising".

Worldwide dignitaries were also in attendance. The president made clear he resented McCain's thumbs-down vote previous year that sank the Republican attempt to repeal national health care.

McCain's daughter, Meghan McCain, also delivered a heartfelt eulogy. A flyover of military aircraft in "missing man" formation honored the Navy pilot who was shot down over Vietnam and held more than five years as a prisoner of war.

It stopped at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial to allow his widow Cindy McCain to lay a wreath honouring all who died in the conflict.
