Talk about desperate? Desperation remember is always ugly and as the inevitable gets closer to reality the uglier the desperate become.
From The Gateway Pundit: Former Presidents Obama, George Bush and Bill Clinton attended Senator John McCain’s funeral today in Washington DC.
President Trump was asked to stay away.McCain was the third most unpopular US senator serving today.
He hated President Trump. The liberal media loved him. McCain Meghan started off the funeral by slamming President Trump with several cheap shots.
Former President Barack Obama followed Meghan McCain by piling on President Trump.
Barack Obama: “John McCain understood that if we get in the habit of bending the truth to suit political expediency, or party orthodoxy, our democracy will not work… Our politics, public life, public discourse can seem small and mean and petty. Trafficking in insult and phony controversies…It’s the politics that pretends to be brave and tough but in fact is born of fear. John called on us to be bigger than that.”
As reported by The Hill: Meghan McCain attacked “cheap rhetoric” and those who use it during her speech at her father’s funeral service on Saturday in Washington while taking several swipes at President Trump.
In her eulogy honoring Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), the first remarks from a scheduled speaker at the service, McCain, 33, battled tears as she recounted her father’s wartime sacrifice in Vietnam.
“He was a great man,” McCain told the audience. “We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness.”
“The real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly, nor the opportunistic appropriation of those who lived lives of comfort and privilege,” she added.
McCain went after the president elsewhere in her speech, dropping a reference to Trump’s signature 2016 campaign slogan as well.
The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great,” she said to applause.
Enter President Trump. Trump wiped the arrogant smirks right off their faces with a simple declaration.
MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
