McCain's inner circle planning on having Pence, not Trump, at funeral: report
By Max Greenwood - 05/05/18 12:13 PM EDT

Those close to Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) have told the White House that their plan for the Arizona Republican's eventual funeral is to have Vice President Pence attend – but not President Trump, The New York Times reports.

The funeral is expected to take place at the Washington National Cathedral, according to the Times.

But Trump, with whom McCain has had a tempestuous relationship, is not expected to attend the service, at least not according to current planning, the Times reported.

McCain was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer last year, and is undergoing treatment. Despite his illness, the senator has continued to visit with friends and field conference calls with his staff back in Washington.

Bet Obama will be there.

While not surprising coming from McCain, this is shockingly disrespectful.  I'm guessing he hasn't found peace yet.

That's ok.  He'll have plenty of company at his funeral.  He'll have most of his 'friends across the aisle'..... the DemocRats.

Oh no, don't have to go to some jerk's hellishly long funeral?  What a punishment.

Their loss.  Everyone knows Trump puts the 'F-U' in funeral.
I disagree.  Circle gets the square.

I'm reminded of "Pollyanna" when the Agnes Moorehead character was picking out all the casket treatments for her funeral.
Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."
I will NOT comply.

Of course, McLunatic's nose is still about a foot up Obombers ass,and will need to be removed for a closed casket service.

His "inner circle" is planning his funeral?  Did anyone ask McCain what he wants?  If he's still holding conference calls as the article states, he must still be lucid enough to plan his own sendoff, no? 

Sorry, guys, but this all sounds strange to me.

It doesn't work that way with traitors you blackmail. NOBODY asks them what they want,they tell them what to say and do.

His fat daughter will no doubt step forward to take over the Family Senate Seat. Her appearances on The View will lock up the Dim vote for her,and her name will lock up the RINO vote. More importantly,the DNC will insist Dim voters vote for her because they know that will be a vote in the Senate they can always count on.

We all know how they love to claim they pass leftist bills with "Bi-Partisan support".

His father is buried at Arlington, so he might go that route, too.  I wouldn’t suggest trying it.

McCain will most certainly be buried in Arlington.  I'd make book on it, but nobody in the planet would take my bet.

He's a "war hero."

I thought Cindy McCain was the one you were betting on?  Doug Ducey is going to stab his friend Donald Trump in the back.

I wouldn't do it there out of respect for all the others.  Sadly ironic that McCain got a bunch of them killed with his love for war and conflict.  Not to mention those govt contractor lobbyists.

Good news is when Crazy Johnny goes, Cindy will be in great shape. She will have all of Johnnies left over pain meds to traffic in.

Good point.  She was due for a resupply.

Maybe she can get together with Kitty Dukakis and chase them down with some hairspray and aftershave.

@Cyber Liberty

Naw,you have me confused with someone else. If she had wanted that Senate seat herself,her father would have bought it for her instead of buying her a husband to hold it.

It's Fat Girl all the way. She's spent the last several years gaining public fame and sucking up to Dims while still claiming to be a Republican.

So will Hillary.

Anyone with bets on the skank factor on Meghan's dress?  I'm going with a 6.

She'll have to get that seat on her own, because Ducey's not likely to hand it to her.

And you are correct, I was thinking of somebody else...sorry.

I'm the one who made the prediction that Governor Ducey will select McCain's wife to succeed him, in exchange for McCain's resignation after the date (May 6?) which permits the governor to pick the successor.

I hadn't considered McCain's daughter. That's possible, too.

But if he's going to resign, he isn't going to do so unless HE gets to choose his replacement -- that is the basis of "the deal".

I have no crystal ball and I could be wrong.
Let's wait and see...
