John McCain slapped President Trump in the face with this announcement
Senator John McCain has a running feud with President Trump.
He killed ObamaCare repeal and tried to work with Democrats to give amnesty to the so-called “DREAMers.”
But now he’s getting his affairs in order and he just made an announcement that was a direct affront to President Trump.
The New York Times reported that John McCain won’t allow President Trump to attend his funeral when he passes.
McCain still resents President Trump for doing what he couldn’t — winning the presidency.
His epic failure in 2008 led to eight years of President Obama.
Now McCain is releasing a memoir entitled, “The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and Other Appreciations.”
In the book, McCain says that he regrets picking conservative Sarah Palin as his running mate in 2008 and instead should’ve chosen Democrat Joseph Lieberman.
McCain has also encouraged Joe Biden to challenge President Trump in 2020.
The New York Times reports:
The Republican senator encouraged the former Democratic vice president [Joe Biden] to “not walk away” from politics, as Mr. Biden put it before refusing to discuss a possible 2020 presidential run. Mr. McCain is using a new book and documentary to reveal his regret about not selecting former Senator Joseph I. Lieberman as his running mate in 2008. His intimates have informed the White House that their current plan for his funeral is for Vice President Mike Pence to attend the service to be held in Washington’s National Cathedral but not President Trump, with whom Mr. McCain has had a rocky relationship.
The national media loves nothing more than a Republican attacking President Trump.
CNN’s Jake Tapper called McCain’s snubbing of President Trump, “a real moment for the country where an American hero, somebody who is beloved in many, many ways is saying, ‘I don’t want this guy at my funeral.’”
But every conservative knows that John McCain is little more than an anti-Trump RINO.
