В США с почестями похоронили Джона Маккейна

"She is grieving for the father she adored, and I think most Americans understand that".

Meghan McCain mocked President Trump's famed "Make America Great Again" campaign slogan at her father's funeral on Saturday-despite the numerous times Senator John McCain spoke of returning America to greatness.

People in the room clapped and social media erupted.

The Sunday services will cap off a week-long remembrance of McCain, during which the "maverick" was remembered in Arizona and Washington, D.C.

Trump's friends are fuming after the tributes to the late senator contained some pointed criticism and unfavorable comparison to the president.

"We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness", continued McCain. Reviews of his response were mixed.

ABC News' Martha Raddatz was one of several reporters to recap the event Sunday morning on This Week, noting the service was comparable to that of a president rather than a senator.

"We all just want to bear witness to the final journey of a hero in our hometown", Cole said.

Graham said the guest list was carefully selected by McCain's family, because "if you wanted to invite everyone who loved John McCain you could have filled up Yankee Stadium".

"My father is gone", she said. John called on us to be bigger than that.

At the pulpit of the spectacular cathedral, with Trump's daughter Ivanka in the audience, McCain's daughter delivered a broadside against the uninvited president.

The 95-year-old Henry Kissinger, the senior imperialist gangster in attendance-he was national security adviser and then secretary of state during much of the Vietnam War, as well as directing the 1973 CIA-backed military coup in Chile-gave one of the eulogies for McCain.

McCain's longtime friend in the Senate, Senator Lindsey Graham of SC, said he would tell the audience that "nobody loved a soldier more than John McCain" and that he would "have their back, travel where they go, never let them be forgotten".

Joining them were family and friends as well as members of McCain's Class of 1958, military leaders and academy midshipmen. John McCain dearest friends on Sunday praised daughter Meghan McCain's fiery eulogy that took swipes at President Trump. They're not the greatest of his titles nor the most important of his roles. McCain lost the Republican presidential nomination to Bush in 2000 and the presidential election to Obama in 2008.

Bracy said he was adamant about showing respect and honor for McCain, a person who fought and suffered for his country.

In Phoenix on Wednesday (August 29), McCain was honored with a ceremony at his state Capitol, with tributes from his Arizona Governor Doug Ducey and his Senate Colleagues, Jeff Flake and Jon Kyl. "America does not boast because she has no need to", she declared.
