McCain buried at US Naval Academy next to old mate

John Mc Cain Sen. John McCain R-Ariz. smiles while on stage as he was joined by former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney at a town hall meeting in Mesa Ariz. Mc Cain is facing a primary challenge from former Republican Rep. J.D. Hayworth in AugustMcCain�

The president, who has often criticized and clashed with McCain, was not in attendance.

Former senator Joseph Lieberman also gave a eulogy, perhaps the most vacuous of the lot, making the claim, "The name John McCain was a source of hope and inspiration for oppressed people around the world". Obama asked. "So much of our politics, our public life, our public discourse can seem small and mean and petty, trafficking in bombast and insult and phony controversies and manufactured outrage". "It's a politics that pretends to be courageous and tough but in fact is born of fear".

"When people of that stature have an opportunity to think ahead and wanting to be together it really is a statement of friendship and support and integrity", said Jacobs, whose father served with McCain's father, U.S. Navy Adm. John Sydney McCain Jr., on submarines during World War II. "Congress should not interfere w/ these negotiations or I will simply terminate NAFTA entirely & we will be far better off".

President Trump's relations with the late Senator John McCain (R., Ariz.) were fraught, to say the least.

That evoked the first applause from an audience that included some administration officials, among them Trump's daughter and son-in-law, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.

The final public ceremony honouring McCain began Saturday at the National Cathedral following a solemn procession past the Vietnam War Memorial in a tribute to the Vietnam War hero who went on to become one of the most respected lawmakers in the US Congress.

McCain's longtime friend in the Senate, Senator Lindsey Graham of SC, said he would tell the audience that "nobody loved a soldier more than John McCain" and that he would "have their back, travel where they go, never let them be forgotten. Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn't", McCain said in a tweet.

Alex Jones heckled Marco Rubio right outside Twitter and Facebook’s Senate hearing

Lopetegui responds to Messi: I would not doubt Madrid's players
Not to forget, the midfield genius at Real Madrid was also awarded the best player of the recently ended FIFA World Cup 2018. He was the second highest goal scorer in the competition with four goals, and the third best player at the World Cup.

McCain's family had made clear the president was not welcome at the funeral for the six-term senator and decorated war veteran at the Washington National Cathedral.

Sen. John McCain's widow and other family members joined friends and admirers following a horse-drawn caisson carrying the casket of the longtime senator to the U.S. Naval Academy cemetery.

Members of the military slowly carried McCain's coffin into the cathedral, past friends and loved ones who have counted among the top power players in United States politics for decades. Among the attendees were Bill and Hillary Clinton and former Sens. A funeral will be held Thursday at North Phoenix Baptist Church where former Vice President Joe Biden will speak.

"We enjoyed the time we shared away from the bright lights", Obama said. Notably, Trump and McCain publicly did not see eye to eye on numerous issues throughout the last two years.

The closing eulogy, and (naturally) the wordiest and most interminable tribute to McCain, came from former president Obama, who praised McCain as "an extraordinary man-a warrior, a statesman, a patriot who embodied so much that is best in America".

Meghan also took aim at the President's multiple draft deferments that excused him from serving in Vietnam, where her father was captured and tortured as a prisoner of war, sustaining injuries that left him with lifelong physical disabilities. But it was still a little surprising to find a not-so-subtle undercurrent of anti-Trumpism at McCain's funeral.
