One speech at John McCain’s funeral left Trump supporters up in arms

John McCain did not want President Trump at his funeral.

McCain did invite former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama to speak.

But there was one speech at John McCain’s funeral that left Trump supporters up in arms.

Meghan McCain – Senator McCain’s daughter – eulogized her father.

There was one part of her speech that shocked Americans.

She used the funeral to blast President Trump by mocking his “Make America Great Again” slogan.

The Associated Press reports:

Standing near McCain’s flag-draped casket and with Trump’s daughter in the audience, Meghan McCain delivered a broadside against the uninvited president without mentioning his name.

“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 while he suffered and served,” she said, her voice first choking back tears. Then, it rose in anger.

“The America of John McCain,” she added, with a reference to Trump’s trademark phrase, “has no need to be made great again because America was always great.”

The audience of Washington power players erupted in applause.

Former Presidents Bush and Obama also attacked Trump in their speeches.

Trump supporters did not think it was appropriate to turn John McCain’s funeral into an anti-Trump political rally.

Many Americans also saw the political elite gathering to reaffirm the fact that they are members of the same club and that they only pretend to disagree in order to get elected.

Bush and Obama both said politicians in other parties were “on the same team” and compared politics to a game.

It was everything many Americans hate about politics.

    Godwin: True, not all Christians are good people; not all non-Christians are bad people. Trump did dodge the draft on the ground of bone-spurs . Trump is just not a good role model of being respectful of other people and of the First Amendment criticizing the press as “enemy of the people”. He often insults others and clearly spins the truth, by using facts very selectively and distorts or even lies about other facts. – just to serve his political purpose and appeal to his gullible base..

    By denying that Obama was a Christian, does it make you a better Christian? Do you really know who a genuine non hypocritical Christian is?

  8. Godwin says:

    Trump is no President. Did Trump dodge the draft?
    By saying a person is not a Christian, does it make you a better Christian. Christ came for all of us NOT for sanctimonious hypocrites. Even Judas realized he was wrong . Christine are you better than even Judsas?

    Britain gave us independence? You are a loon.

    Trump has taken crap from the liberals and RINOs every day since his election. He’s only throwing their BS back at them.

    Best economy in 50 years.

    Get your head out of your rectum.

  10. Godwin Daniel says:

    How can you say that the President of USA did not deserve to be bashed. He was nothing more that a foul mouthed selfish thug.
    Britain should never have given US they independence till they proved to be civilized and sane.

    Eileen: As I said earlier – until you learn manners and courtesy, I refuse to speak with you and discuss matters . You are proving once again that you are low-life and don’t deserve my time.

  12. Eileen says:

You are not looking at the right polls…you are checking out the corrupt media polls..You guys are such sore losers and cannot believe that Hillary lost..Get over it once and for all..It is getting quite embarrassing for all you loser Demorats..Surely you must know about how our economy is going..Can’t you all accept the fact that President Donald Trump have done more for our country in less than 2 yrs than any other President in History..Gosh you all are so LAME..ENOUGH OF YOUR WHINING AND START SHOWING RESPECT TO OUR ELECTED PRESIDENT…GEEZZZZZZZZZ.

  13. SusanL says:

    This funeral should have been about John McCain. Turned out to be the forum to take a jab at our President.

  14. Christine says:

    Eillen -You resort to insults, because you have no credible arguments. As to the elections, Trumps popularity is dipping – and as things are now going, unless Trump smartens up, he will loose the 2020 election. Calling me stupid just convinces me that you are STUPD yourself – and don’t have any manners or courtesy. You are just low-life. I am done with you – and you don’t deserve any more of my time.

  15. Eileen says:

    Tonja and Christine are unhappy people..All because President Trump WON the election..Get a life you two ignorant Demorats…Keep saying what you are saying and watch who wins in 2020..You two ignoramus are helping big time…HA HA HA HA! You guys are so STUPID you don’t even realize it..but hey, Thank You…
