Trump Graciously Approves Air Force 2 for McCain Casket, Then Family and Elites Trash Him at Funeral

President Donald Trump graciously allowed the McCain family to use Air Force 2 to transport Sen. McCain’s remains to and from Washington. So, what did these D.C. elites do at McCain’s funeral? They ignorantly turned the funeral into a giant Trump trashing event. Even in death liberal D.C. elitists are ignoramuses, apparently.

As TMZ reported:

The late Arizona senator’s casket was loaded onto one of the jets known as Air Force 2 — which is often designated for the VP or First Lady’s travel. As you know, 45 will not be attending McCain’s service in D.C. … reportedly because McCain wanted it that way.

Still, Trump announced earlier this week he had greenlit military transport for McCain, saying, “At the request of the McCain family, I have also authorized military transportation of Senator McCain’s remains from Arizona to Washington, D.C., military pallbearers and band support, and a horse and caisson transport during the service at the United States Naval Academy.”

McCain and Trump had a long and well-known feud. If Trump was really as vindictive as liberals say he is, he could easily have denied the McCain family the use of Air Force 2 for the transportation of their loved one’s casket. But he didn’t.

The McCain funeral was so bad that even liberals were shocked at how the event became a mass “resistance” meeting.

If the white liberals at The New Yorker are calling McCain’s funeral a “resistance meeting,” you know it was bad:

Donald Trump’s name was never mentioned. It didn’t have to be. The funeral service for John Sidney McCain III, at the Washington National Cathedral, on this swampy Saturday morning, was all about a rebuke to the pointedly uninvited current President of the United States, which was exactly how McCain had planned it.

In response to the hatefest, Trump just tweeted “Make America Great Again!”

But millions of Americans were sickened by the excessive hate spewed by the deep state actors who spoke at McCain’s funeral.
