Honoring Sen. John McCain

John Mc Cain daughters

John McCain has drawn tributes from presidents and prime ministers, senators and secretaries of state in the emotion-laden days since his death. "He could not abide bigots and swaggering despots", Bush said, in another apparent reference to Trump's conduct and affinity for strongmen like Russian President Vladimir Putin. John McCain "melted away" as they forged a friendship. John McCain's widow, Cindy, was quickly surrounded by messages honoring the senator and former prisoner of war. "And to me, he was a friend whom I'll deeply miss". "Those were real and they were often deep", Obama said. "He saw himself as defending America's character, not just mine, for he considered it the imperative of every citizen who loves this country to treat all people fairly". He was also a devoted father who would carry her to bed as a little girl, kiss her skinned knee, and sometimes take her out of school to attend public town hall events.

Bush told of becoming friends with his former White House rival as the two would recall their political battles like former football players remembering the big game. Cheney was there because he had been Bush's vice president.

McCain's service and dedication to working across the aisle - even as he sometimes infuriated his opponents - was a major theme of Friday's ceremony in the Capitol Rotunda.

Bush and Michelle Obama did.

Cindy McCain laid a wreath at the memorial Saturday in memory of her late husband, Sen John McCain.

During Obama's speech, Mrs. Obama and Bush turned to each other, smiled and nodded.

While perhaps Trump will deny that the tweet had anything to do with the memorial that Sen.

McCain's family, friends, Naval Academy Class of 1958 peers, Naval and military leaders and the Brigade of Midshipmen are invited to the ceremony held in Naval Academy Chapel, McCain's office said.

In her eulogy, Meghan McCain took a direct jab at President Trump and his campaign motto without repeating it. He was allegedly at Trump National Golf Club in Loudoun County, Virginia, while the funeral was under way.

Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona offered the benediction for McCain's service in their home state. The White House did not respond to questions about whether he was watching.

Top members of Trump's administration, including his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner, attended, as did White House chief of staff John Kelly and national security adviser John Bolton.

"@realDonaldTrump ran for @POTUS ONE time and WON! Some people will never recover from that", tweeted Katrina Pierson, an adviser to Trump's re-election campaign. While offering "sympathy" and "respect" to the 2008 Presidential candidate's family, the current President didn't make a single remark that day about McCain's long military and political service.

"It's a politics that pretends to be courageous and tough but in fact is born in fear". One of the pallbearers selected by McCain before his death was Vladimir Kara-Murza, a sharp critic of the Kremlin. Russ Feingold, a Wisconsin Democrat; Phil Gramm, a Texas Republican; and Gary Hart, a Colorado Democrat.

Meghan McCain said her father revered an America that was "generous, welcoming and bold".

Bush referred to the late senator as "courageous" and "honest".

During the performance, Mrs. McCain shut her eyes and put her hand over her mouth.
