McCain doesn't want Trump at funeral, friends tell White House

McCain, who has been battling brain cancer, and Trump have had a turbulent relationship. The senator wants Vice President Mike Pence to attend instead.

WASHINGTON People close to Sen. John McCain have told the White House that the ailing Arizona Republican does not want President Donald Trump to attend his funeral and would like Vice President Mike Pence to come instead, a source close to McCain confirmed to NBC News.

McCain, 81, has been battling an aggressive form of brain cancer for nearly a year and is back home in Arizona after he underwent surgery last month for an intestinal infection.

The senator, the 2008 GOP presidential nominee, said in an audio excerpt this week of his forthcoming memoir, "I don't know how much longer I'll be here," according to a clip aired by NPR.

8. I'm betting he does it and shows up anyway.

He doesn't give a shit that McCain doesn't want him there and the difficulty for even him to explain his absence will make him go and risk being the skunk at the garden party.

2. The republican Draft-Dodger-in-Chief insulted America's POWs

time and again, just as he has insulted our veterans.

Comrade Casino shows no respect. McCain knows that if the republican family-values role model attends his funeral, the craven casino hustler will find some way to steal the spotlight make it all about him. Sad

7. Before he dies, I'd like McCain to make a video that really details how

screwed up this country is under Trump.
