Obama, Bush to give eulogies at McCain's eventual funeral: report

Former Presidents George W. Bush and Obama are expected to deliver eulogies at Sen. John McCain's (R-Ariz.) eventual funeral, NBC News reported Saturday.

The news that the two former presidents plan to speak at the event comes amid revelations that those close to McCain have informed the White House that they plan to have Vice President Pence attend the senator's funeral - but not President Trump.

The New York Times reported earlier on Saturday that McCain's funeral is expected to take place at the Washington National Cathedral.

The 81-year-old McCain is currently undergoing treatment for an aggressive form of brain cancer that he was diagnosed with last year.

2. It's good that Trump will have no part in it.

Sen. McCain will appreciate that.

3. There should be NO TRUMP representation at any funeral........


For a former President, Senator, House member, etc.

Why tarnish the event with such a stain as Trump? Social pariahs the lot of them.

7. McCain is asking his ADVERSARY

from 2008 to give his eulogy and is demanding that Trump not even come at all.

That's how hated Trump is and how a true military officer leaves.

10. Bush can talk about how his campaign spread a false rumor about McCain having an illegitimate black

child in the 2000 GOP primary.
Good times.
