Meghan McCain jab at Trump defended

Obama, Bush _ not Trump _ give McCain presidential farewell

Mr McCain will be buried at his alma mater, the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.

Thousands of Arizonans on Wednesday flocked to the state Capitol Building in Phoenix, where the Republican senator laid in state.

On Friday, Meghan McCain gained attention after social media users noted the look on on her face as Vice President Mike Pence spoke during a memorial service for her father in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda Friday.

Obama asked. "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". It's a politics that pretends to be fearless, but in fact is born of fear.

Cloaked in a shirt and bandanna covered in red and white stripes and stars adorning a blue background, veteran Lewis A. Bracy, 65, camped out as early as 10:30 a.m. with a sign that read "John U R All, Trump is Not".

Manchester United must show winning mentality, says Lukaku
Before they played against Burnley , Manchester United had lost to Brighton and Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur in the league. But he admitted it had been equally hard for his small squad. "We have the quality, that's for sure", said the midfielder.

The president's absence from the funeral reflected McCain's belief that Trump violates those ideals, and the president returned McCain's enmity.

Family and friends, along with the Naval Academy's class of 1958 and its current student body, bade a final farewell in a private service at the Naval Academy chapel before McCain, who died August 25 at age 81, was interred in a cemetery on the academy grounds.

"The best of John McCain, the greatest of his titles and the most important of his roles, was father", said Meghan McCain, a co-host of ABC's "The View".

In an appearance today on CNN's State of the Union, former senator Joseph Lieberman, (I) one of McCain's closest friends in the Senate, said the burial service was "going to be hard, because it's the last farewell".

"We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness". Though Trump had not been invited to Sen.

Obama honors Aretha Franklin with letter, says singer 'lifted those of millions'
The rendition was a big hit on Twitter, with one user describing it as "one queen's homage to another". Franklin died August 16 at age 76.

Meghan McCain's politicization of the eulogy for her deceased father shocked many people who were watching the funeral services on Saturday on live television - or watching it on livestreams on the internet.

The somber assemblage kicked off three days of ceremonies honoring McCain, a former Navy aviator and prisoner of war in Vietnam who went on to win six terms in the Senate. The election contest between Democrats and Republicans was just an "intramural scrimmage", Obama said after meeting with Trump in the White House.

"His own attitude, the way he faced death with characteristic fearlessness and perspective, really comforted me", Lieberman said.

For all of John McCain's exalted titles - war hero, Senator, presidential candidate - Meghan McCain said she loved him best as a father. Joining them were those auditioning for leadership roles in future war crimes: potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidates like Senator Elizabeth Warren and former vice president Joe Biden.

Mr McCain was buried next to his classmate and friend, Admiral Chuck Larson, who reserved four plots in the idyllic cemetery for the pair and their wives before his death in 2014. "I find it contemptible that the McCain family couldn't seat them in a better, more respectable section".

Among the pallbearers were Frank Gamboa, his academy roommate; Defence Secretary Jim Mattis and two men who were POWs with McCain in Vietnam, John Fer and Everett Alvarez.
