If ya haven't noticed yet, every Republican in power is Satan. Once they're outta power libs move on to their next outrage.

This president had to be pressured by the American Legion to keep the WH flag at half-staff until the burial. Donald Trump was and shall never be fit to shine John McCain's boots.
Standard protocol and practice for the death of a Senator is to have the flag at half mast the day of the death and the day following the death. Senator McCain was instrumental in determining that protocol and practice. Take your butt-hurt someplace else.

He was a long term, well liked Senator and armed services committee member and war hero. The proper thing for Trump would have been to have his people consult with the military groups and congressmen before raising it again so soon.
But it went back down, so chill.

He mostly (I believe) wanted to spare his family and friends the extra grief of whatever 10 year old Donald would do or say to make the day even more unpleasant. He did the right thing. It was a beautiful service and memorial, and for a day we got to forget about sh*thead.

Yes, it was a great day for politicians and Trump haters.

I am chill. I was merely pointing out how foolish the butt-hurt talking point was.

It was petty and small.

Question for you,
Have any of your relatives specifically requested that a person from their place of employment NOT attend their funeral?
I've been employed for over 40 years and never once have I heard of a dying coworker requesting that some person not be at their funeral.
I can maybe give Mr. McCain the benefit of the doubt because just maybe his brain cancer effed with his ability to think clearly, but if that were the case, I would think that his family would recognize that and make appropriate decisions.
Small and petty people. Glad I don't have family, friends or coworkers like that.
