.@realDonaldTrump is such a disgrace to what America stands for, John McCain banned him from his funeral. Everyone’s there—Presidents Obama, Bush, Clinton—now at the National Catherdral to honor a great American. Trump? In his safe place—watching FoxNews and tweeting propaganda.
John McCain's pallbearers – including Russian dissident Vladimir Kara-Murza, Democrat Russ Feingold, former VP Joe Biden, actor Warren Beatty, former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, William Cohen—stand in attendance at the late senator's memorial service at National Catherdral in DC
Meghan McCain went there, fiercely: “We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness—the real thing—not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly…nor opportunistic appropriation by those who lived lives of comfort and privilege
“The name ‘John McCain’—based on the action of the man John McCain—has become a source of hope and inspiration for the oppressed across the world”—Joe Lieberman tells stories of what McCain meant to refugees & dissidents from Syria & Myanmar.
George W Bush: John McCain “loved freedom with the passion of a man who knew its absence… Perhaps above all, John detested the abuse of power.”
Obama: For all our differences—we never doubted we were on the same team. We shared a fidelity to ideals for wh gens of Americans marched–fought–sacrificed. Our political battles were an oppty to serve as stewards of those ideals at home & to advance them around the world.#McCain
McCain's funeral was a proud embrace of America's ideals & fierce rebuke of the fake in WH. We mourn him & that we have no real POTUS. Trump is a sleazy con who seized power in unimaginable ways & abuses it daily. We don't bury America w/ McCain. We rise united to defeat Trumpism
"we honor him best by recognizing…there are some things bigger than party or ambition or money or fame or power, that the things that are worth risking everything for, principles that are eternal, truths that are abiding"—Obama on McCain (transcript)…
