1. As a voter and US citizen, I have TRIED to stay out of the McCain Mess occuring for the sheer fact that he did serve in the US military and was a POW, therein my respect. I'm not ignorant of very bad deeds the man did and appears to have done his life-long soaked in bitterness
2, But the man's passed away, thus, I've withheld criticism of him DUE TO HIS SURVIVORS, not seeking to offend them or add to their grief at McCain's passing.
3. McCain had foreknowledge of his death, his wife, daughter, other children and former wife AND COWORKERS knew his life was on a stop-clock. There was time to grieve, offer love and support and say goodbye. Many people do not ever have that luxury.
4. When his immiediate survivors (current wife, daughter) USE this elaborate, drawn-out, unnecessarily and inappropriately structured near-week-long ceremony to bash (and do so with pointed antagonism) our current US President (which McCain never was)...
5. And the daughter and wife make a highly obvious public display of wealth and "trauma for the camera" (which is how these behaviors appear), ESPECIALLY after they had to have been extremely pre-informed of his death, these events appear as melodrama. Enter the bashing of trump
6. There was no reason, no situational rational, for two former Presidents (W and Obama),, McCain's wife and daughter, Senator/s to make prepared insults and denigration of our current President, which then does likewise to this nation's voters who elected Trump to the Presidency
7. Grief can foster strange behaviors but in this case with McCain, his grief about himself extends years back where he as a Senator denied helps and discovery re: POWs froim the Vietnam War. His failed Pres'l campaign, his treachery toward those who assisted him in that...
8. I realize the GOP needs to keep the positivity "up" and I'd prefer to think that this drawn-out, Trump-bashing fest for a man's end of life is ONLY due to that; meanwhile, McCain's life does NOT define him as "a hero" which media and two former Presidents bizarrely state today
9. I am utterly disgusted by former Pres Bush in his denigration of current US @POTUS Donald Trump and particularly in his using McCain's funeral, as his wife, daughter, Sen Flake, Obama, have all done. IT IS DISGUSTING AND COWARDLY by them all, that they'd stoop as low as that
10. Taxpayers fund an elaborate (and unnecessarily so) funeral-memorial for days (not to mention the use of AF2 for transportation) and what do these disgusting group do with that? They exploit the public even more with intentional smear-speeches/remarks about @realDonaldTrump
11. It's inexcusable by assuming "it's grief talking" in this case. Because everyone, from family to stranger, has been well informed of impending end-of-life where McCain is concerned. A full year or more to make plans, love and hug and say goodbye. Instead, the plan was to...
12. Instead, the plan was to exploit the public once again by politically-fevered persons to issue animosity and denigration of our current President. HOW PETTY IS THAT?! How ghoulish is that? Very, in both.
