Donald Trump Takes A Jab At Meghan McCain With MAGA Tweet

Meghan McCain rebukes Trump in powerful eulogy for her father

John McCain was a veteran of the Vietnam War and spent five and a half years as a prisoner of war after his plane was shot down in 1967.

"The America of John McCain is generous and welcoming and bold". Before his death, McCain reportedly made it clear that America's 45th president was not welcome at his funeral.

McCain, who died last Saturday at age 81, has been lionized over the past week of emotional commemorations, including his congressional colleagues bestowing him the rare honor of lying in state in the US Capitol on Friday.

However, the outpouring of support and recollections from all sides of the political spectrum in recent days attest to the basic decency and values that governed his life.

After Meghan McCain subtly slammed President Donald Trump at the funeral of her father, Senator John McCain, the president took to Twitter and wrote an obvious jab at McCain's daughter.

Serena Williams wins U.S. Open quarterfinals, advances to semis
Sevastova broke the 25-year-old American's serve twice in the opening set, then broke her again to take a 2-0 lead in the second. Serena looked off her game early on Wednesday (AEST) at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York City, but it didn't last long.


As political dignitaries gathered in Washington to memorialise Senator John McCain, the president tweeted familiar grievances and headed to the golf course. He will be missed.

"He was a great man, he was a great warrior, he was a great American", she said.

Through tears, she said that although McCain was known for many accomplishments - a presidential nominee, a senator and a war hero - she will remember him best for the love he provided as a father.

"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".

John McCain's final journey ended on a grassy hill at the U.S. Naval Academy within view of the Severn River and earshot of midshipmen present and future, and alongside a lifelong friend. These arrangements included eulogies by former presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush, whom he had requested as speakers. His family did not invite Trump to Saturday's service at the Washington National Cathedral, but key members of his administration were in attendance, including daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner.

The flag-draped coffin holding McCain's body was flown to Washington, D.C., aboard Air Force Two, the plane reserved for the vice president.

Lieberman, in his eulogy, said of McCain: "He regularly reached across party lines because he knew that was the only way to solve problems". In McCain's concession speech at the Arizona Biltmore, he graciously spoke of the significance of Obama's win, as the first African-American to hold the presidency.

In this Sep. 1, 2018 photo, Meghan McCain speaks at a memorial service for her father, Sen. "McCain after his passing". "I think the invite came from Lindsey Graham", said new co-host Abby Huntsman. On the contrary, no sooner is McCain buried than the US Senate will take up and rubber-stamp Trump's nomination of the ultra-right judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

During the 2016 campaign, Trump said of McCain: "He's a war hero because he was captured". Mr Bush, who defeated Mr McCain in the 2000 Republican primary, said Mr McCain "detested the abuse of power". The McCain family plans a private burial service on Sunday at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., where the senator, the son and grandson of four-star admirals, graduated in 1958.
