Trump Breaks His Silence On McCain And Puts Up Bold Message Outside The White House

Published

on

Senator John McCain passed away this weekend after a long battle with an aggressive form of glioblastoma cancer. He was surrounded by his family and friends in his home in Arizona just one day after announcing he would be stopping treatment. Now politicians and citizens are expressing their condolences and releasing statements to commemorate his life and give their thoughts and prayers. One of those people is President Trump and his response is especially touching.

The Daily Caller reported,

“President Trump tweeted his condolences to the family of John McCain after the Arizona senator’s passing on Saturday. “My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of Senator John McCain,” Trump tweeted. “Our hearts and prayers are with you!” McCain, 81, lost his battle with glioblastoma, a highly malignant form of brain cancer that claims more than 95 percent of its victims within five years of diagnosis. The two men had a highly contentious relationship, particularly after then-candidate Trump said McCain was no “war hero” because he had been captured during the Vietnam War. A Saturday Washington Post piece revealed that the president did not regret making the statement and considered McCain’s statements against him part of a “vendetta.””

The Daily Mail reported,

“Flags were flying at half-staff at the White House on Sunday morning following the death of U.S. Senator John McCain after a year-long battle with brain cancer. The 81-year-old maverick senator’s body was given a police escort as he was taken to Phoenix from his Arizona ranch after he passed away Saturday night. An order of mourning has been announced, with McCain to lie in state first at the Arizona state Capitol in Phoenix on Wednesday prior to a memorial service in Arizona on Thursday.

On Friday, McCain’s body will be transported to Washington, DC to lie in state at the US Capitol, prior to a funeral service at the National Cathedral on Saturday. He will be buried on Sunday in a private service at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis. McCain, who became a prominent critic of President Donald Trump, had made it known prior to his death that he did not want Trump to attend his funeral. Vice President Mike Pence is expected to represent the current administration.

Former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama have both been asked of give eulogies at the funeral service, the New York Times reports. No date has been set for his funeral. McCain, a former prisoner of war in Vietnam who ran unsuccessfully for president as a self-styled maverick Republican in 2008, died on Saturday aged 81. He had been battling glioblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer, discovered by his doctors in July 2017, and had not been at the U.S. Capitol in 2018. He also had surgery for an intestinal infection in April of this year.

His family announced on Friday that McCain, who served as a U.S. senator from Arizona for over three decades, was discontinuing further cancer treatment. ‘Senator John Sidney McCain III died at 4:28 p.m. on August 25, 2018. With the senator when he passed were his wife Cindy and their family. At his death, he had served the United States of America faithfully for sixty years,’ a statement from his office on Saturday said. His wife Cindy McCain tweeted: ‘My heart is broken. I am so lucky to have lived the adventure of loving this incredible man for 38 years. ‘He passed the way he lived, on his own terms, surrounded by the people he loved, in the place he loved best.’ His daughter Meghan McCain wrote a heartbreaking tribute to her dad that was titled: ‘I love you forever, my beloved father’.

Shortly after 7pm local time a hearse left the senator’s beloved Hidden Valley estate and led a motorcade as McCain’s body was removed from the family home to be transported to Phoenix, with a number of people seen lining the route. He would have celebrated his 82nd birthday on Wednesday.’He was a great fire who burned bright, and we lived in his light and warmth,’ said Meghan, one of the late senator’s seven children – three of them from a previous marriage. Near the driveway to his ranch in a rural part of Sedona, Arizona, a sign read ‘Sen McCain, thank you for your service.’ A police escort accompanied the hearse that carried his body, as a fiery sunset cast its last light over the rustic countryside McCain loved dearly, and local residents came bearing flowers for the late political titan. A steady stream of friends and colleagues had come to bid him farewell at his Arizona ranch in the months since his cancer diagnosis, in July 2017.”

Both former presidents President Obama and President George W. Bush passed along their condolences from released statements. President Obama discussed his shared values of statesmanship and a fidelity to a higher power, which he indicated he shared with the former Senator. Former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin also expressed her condolences, as she was McCain’s former Vice Presidential candidate. As well, former Vice President Joe Biden, Senator Lindsey Graham, and others in the House of Representatives and the Senate gave their consideration in released statements.

Share if the McCain family is in your thoughts and prayers.

Share if you are saddened by McCain’s passing.

Share to honor the life of Senator John McCain.

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

Published

* By

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

Published

...

* By

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.
