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

Source: NBCNews


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.

4. I can understand that.

At the same time, pense is in many ways worse than trump because he actually believes stuff.

As usual, it looks to me like mccain is making his choice based on his own personal experience with something or someone. There is, as far as I can remember, a long history of this with him. He takes a stance on something when it hits close to home.
I have little respect for that.

I could very well be wrong about that..but..

eh...... life is short and I get to play Tchaikovsky, Rimski-Korsakov, Dvorak and Elgar tomorrow and Monday nights.

5. Think of me while you make that music! 🎶 🤗

Quite fond of all those. Just listened to Chopin last nite. Memories of ballet class, adagio on the floor.

6. I have enough to do hearing the trumpets. They're on the other side if the orchestra.

I'm the timpanist. Weird set up. 🤣

Tchaik #2, Russian Easter Overture, Dvorak Cello Concerto, Enigma Variations. Elgar Sunday and Tchaik Monday.

10. they are both shitty. we need to stop with the "Pence is worse" stuff because

Trump is destroying civil rights for gays, women, minorities , workers etc.

at least with pence we can get some focus on these issues instead of dumbfucks tweets of the day.

Dubya Bush has reportedly also been asked to give a eulogy.

11. Trump said McCain wasn't a hero because, "I like people who DON'T get captured."

It's not only that McCain doesn't want Trump to attend his funeral, he's making damned sure Donnie Two Scoops and everyone else knows it. There is no way this won't come up during coverage of his funeral.

Consider it a dying man's last "fuck you, asshole!"

12. I guess that McCain is too nice to say it,

 

but he should have said that he didn't want Trump, a draft dodger, to attend.
