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.

"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.
