McCain’s Confidential Request Just Made Public On Why Trump Was Banned From Funeral

Published

The controversial Republican Senator from Arizona who was loved by the American Left and despised by Conservatives, John McCain, died Saturday at the age of 81. Just one day after his family announced that he would be discontinuing medical treatment for his aggressive brain cancer.

Now, a confidential request he made before dying has been made public. McCain, who was known for his temper and his ability to hold grudges told his close friends to ban President Donald Trump from his week-long funeral services.

Here is more on this via LifeZette:

“As the nation mourns the loss of Arizona Sen. John McCain, plans for his funeral — which may not include President Donald Trump, per the request of the deceased senator — are well underway.

Those close to the American war hero, who died Saturday afternoon following a fierce battle with glioblastoma, informed the White House that their plan was to invite Vice President Mike Pence to attend the memorial service to be held at Washington’s National Cathedral — but not President Trump, as The New York Times originally reported in May.

McCain’s relationship with Trump, which played out publicly, has rarely been smooth.

During his presidential campaign, for example, Trump remarked, of McCain’s history as a POW, “He’s not a war hero. He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”

As NBC News also reported at the time about the incident, “McCain’s wish for Trump to skip his funeral, first reported [in early May] by The New York Times, comes as the two men have had a turbulent relationship, particularly since the 2016 presidential primary when Trump said McCain was considered a war hero only ‘because he was captured’ during the Vietnam War and that Trump preferred military figures who avoided being taken prisoner by the enemy.”

The feelings between the two seemed mutual.

Following Trump’s press conference with Vladimir Putin, McCain said, “Today’s press conference in Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory. The damage inflicted by President Trump’s naïveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate. But it is clear that the summit in Helsinki was a tragic mistake,” as ABC News and others reported.

The 81-year-old Vietnam POW helped plan his own funeral and made his wish of Trump’s non-attendance at the service known to several people, according to CNN’s reporting on the matter.

Though Trump — if McCain’s and the McCain family’s wishes are respected — may not attend the funeral services, former United States presidents of both parties likely will be there.

Former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama are expected to eulogize McCain, as multiple outlets reported.

Social media users, as always, were quick to weigh in on these events and discussions.”

It’s easy to see why McCain would have banned the President from his funeral. They hated each other. And many of us conservatives and those who lost our health insurance coverage thanks to Obamacare can relate to what President Trump felt towards McCain. But there is one thing more he did that’s even worse, he actually banned his 2008 running mate Sarah Palin from his funeral.

Here is more on this via Fox News:

“In 2008, she was chosen to be his running mate – potentially just a heartbeat away from the presidency.

But now former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, like President Trump, has been left off the list of invitees to the funeral of the late U.S. Sen. John McCain, according to multiple reports.

“My guess is, it came from Cindy,” a source close to the McCain family told People magazine, referring to the late senator’s widow. “She is very protective of John’s memory and legacy. She’s also a grieving widow. I think she wants to get through this as best she can.”

“My guess is, it came from Cindy. She is very protective of John’s memory and legacy. She’s also a grieving widow. I think she wants to get through this as best she can.”

The message was sent through an intermediary, not directly from the McCain family, according to the report.

An NBC reporter tweeted that a Palin “family source” said, “Out of respect to Senator McCain and his family we have nothing to add at this point. The Palin family will always cherish their friendship with the McCains and hold those memories dear.”

Palin did not immediately respond to a Fox News email sent early Thursday.

A decade ago, it was McCain’s selection of Palin to be his vice president that catapulted Palin to the national political spotlight from relative obscurity in Alaska.

But their relationship quickly grew strained, amid accusations that Palin was often unprepared for media interviews, or had “gone rogue” by ignoring the advice of McCain campaign handlers.

Some critics charged that Palin was more interested in advancing her own career – and popularity among conservative voters — than assuring the success of the McCain-Palin ticket, led by the more moderate McCain.

In May, McCain published a book titled “The Restless Wave,” in which he wrote that he regretted choosing Palin as his running mate instead of his close friend, former U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut.

McCain and Palin ultimately lost the White House in 2008 to Barack Obama and Joe Biden.”

Sarah Palin and her family were always loyal to John McCain. She even went as far as to constantly endorse him even though every time she did so she would lose the respect of Conservatives.

She never attacked McCain or his family in public, which the same can’t be said about the McCain family.

Meghan McCain, John McCain’s daughter, spoke out about Sarah Palin after the campaign by writing in a book that Palin brought “drama, stress, complications, panic and loads of uncertainty” to the losing campaign. Meghan when as far as to write that during the campaign she wondered whether the loss “was Sarah Palin’s fault.”

Does Meghan McCain actually think us Conservatives went out to vote during the 2008 election because of her father? The man responsible at that point for McCain/Feingold and McCain/Kennedy? Really?

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
