I voted for John McCain in 2008. To this day I believe he would have been a better President than Barack Obama. None of us ever has the perfect candidate or the perfect President- unless you’re a democrat. However, over the years John McCain became more and more of curmudgeon and he staked out some strange perspectives. McCain was part of the cabal that strove to derail Trump’s campaign and then his Presidency. McCain also heartily endorsed the effort by the IRS to destroy the Tea Party. I I watched as McCain’s fellow POW’s say that they did not think that McCain was himself over the last year or two.

While I salute McCain’s service to the country, I am less eager to celebrate McCain’s later political life. I find myself bemused as I watch democrats like Chuck Schumer lauding the guy they called  “racist” in 2008. They speak glowingly of McCain only because he did not like Donald Trump. BTW, is the funeral over yet?

Meghan McCain used her father’s funeral to take a shot at Donald Trump and in so doing became what she railed against.

“The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again, because America was always great.”

Andrew Cuomo didn’t think so.

The NY Times took the opportunity to slam Trump for playing golf during the funeral services.

Not sure if the Times knows it, but Trump wasn’t invited to the funeral.

There was no love lost between McCain and Trump. McCain, however, could have proven himself the bigger man and invited Trump to the funeral, but he didn’t. McCain’s pettiness was highlighted by his snubbing of Sarah Palin. He asked Palin to be on his ticket, did not properly prepare her and then abandoned her. Then he snubbed her.

That was low. McCain was no saint.

Did I mention obama spoke at McCain’s funeral?

He often called McCain a racist in 2008

In 2012, democrats piled the racism charge on McCain

Several House Democrats on Friday attacked Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz) as a racist, a sexist, and said that his criticism of U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice amounted to mugging and battering.

“There is a clear, a clear in my opinion, sexism and racism that goes with these comments that are being made by–unfortunately–Senator McCain and others,” Congressional Black Caucus chairwoman Rep. Marsha Fudge (D-Ohio.) said in a press conference Friday on Capitol Hill.

“And I strongly stand by that statement.”

It was even worse at Aretha Franklin’s funeral. That was a complete sh*tshow. A number of attendees used the funeral to score political points.

Michael Dyson made an ass of himself:

Georgetown professor Michael Eric Dyson went on a rant against the president and even suggested that Hillary Clinton won the election during his eulogy at Aretha Franklin’s funeral on Friday.

He began his speech saying listing people who were in attendance including, “President Clinton and her husband Bill.”

“Then this orange apparition had the nerve to say she worked for him. You lugubrious leach, you dopey doppelgänger of deceit and deviance, you lethal liar, you dimwitted dictator, you foolish fascist,” Dyson continued. “She [didn’t] work for you, she worked above you. She worked beyond you. Get your preposition right. Then he [has] the nerve to say he’s going to grab it. That’s not what Aretha Franklin said. I’m going to give you something that you can feel.”

Stevie Wonder put his two cents in.

Right there in the front row of the mourners were Louis Farrakhan and Jesse Jackson. And Monica Lewinsky’s ex-boyfriend, who visually groped Ariana Grande’s behind.

But no one could have been a bigger ass than Al Sharpton. Earlier, Donald Trump had remarked that Aretha Franklin once worked for him. Sharpton took offense to this.

 

It was almost as though Trump was showing Aretha no R E S P I C T.

But, like it or not, Al, she did work for Trump.

Franklin was said to dislike Trump as a politician but she seemed to find him agreeable as an employer, and that’s fair enough.

Trump did show Franklin some RESPICT on her passing:

“I want to begin today by expressing my condolences to the family of a person I knew well,” the president said. “She worked for me on numerous occasions. She was terrific — Aretha Franklin — on her passing. She’s brought joy to millions of lives and her extraordinary legacy will thrive and inspire many generations to come. She was given a great gift from God — her voice, and she used to well. People loved Aretha. She was a special woman. So just want to pass on my warmest best wishes and sympathies to her family.”

Amusingly, the press did its best to erase Farrakhan from the funeral:

The whole thing- both funerals- were appalling. Both ceremonies should have been about honoring those lost and for what they gave to us. The attendees should have risen above the fray. Instead, they devolved into the very behaviors they proclaimed to be so terrible in Donald Trump.

Trump was in their heads, He dominated the funerals. He wins again.

By the way, is the McCain funeral over yet?
