    Trump should likely shut his petty little mouth when talking about the flag and NFL players.

    Flag back at full staff at White House as Trump is BANNED by McCain from attending his funeral
    The flag at the White House is back to full staff at the White House
    Flags are typically kept at half staff until the honoree is buried
    The flag at the U.S. Capitol remains at half staff
    The late Senator John McCain is set to buried on Sunday
    Before he died, the senator banned President Donald Trump from his funeral
    Trump vetoed a White House statement that paid tribute to McCain
    Trump left White House team to send their own personal messages about McCain who passed away Saturday
    POTUS was spotted playing golf Sunday afternoon as social media followers waited for a more meaningful statement from the president ..............

    I like politicians who weren't war mongers.

    I think part of what makes Trump so appealing to many Americans is that he is a powerful billionaire, but he's relatable in that he's not particularly hardworking or focused or brilliant or careful like most other powerful billionaires. Instead, he's what an average American (and the average respondant in this thread thus far) would be if you gave them a billion dollars and a bunch of power. Ignorant, obese, foul, and petty. His most ardent supporters will see nothing wrong with this because this is exactly the sort of pettiness that they direct toward their own enemies. But I think most adults who aren't trash, and who have responsibilities beyond themselves, can see how repulsive this is.

    RIP McCain.

    Trump is such a prick

    Good move McCain on blocking Trump from attending

    Trump wouldn't want to go anyway but you know being publicly blocked would make Trump Crazy, clever game McCain and awesome move.

    RIP

    Not surprising. It does send the message that he actually cares very little about service to one's country. Otherwise he wouldn't let his personal grudge (which I don't actually have a problem with in and of itself) get in the way of the White House sticking to decorum. But whatever. It's just more of the same and not worth more than a passing glance.

    As someone who voted for McCain in my state and voted for Trump I think it’s disrespectful and stupid by Trump he should of gave his condolences and let all that go. The McCain rivalry was childish on both sides, I like what Shapiro said to the effect of “Trump is like a hammer sometimes he hits the nail perfectly and other times he misses so far”

    The man is dead, Trump should have just let it go. Trump's ego is fucking massive, he is a gotten to prick. I wonder how he feels when people talk about his tiny hands.

    Thumbing your nose at a sitting President as your last official act on this Earth seems peculiar to me.

    John McCain decided to literally take his rivalry with President Trump to the grave.

    Speaks volumes about the sitting president. He's so reviled he doesn't even deserve respect from a dying man...

    The man disrespected McCain every chance he was given and you think he’d want to give Trump the honor of attending his funeral?

    Not really.

    It only speaks to the man who committed the action. In this instance, John McCain.

    This is the first time I've ever heard someone use this kind of metric.

    A person in the act of dying doesn't receive automatic reverence.

    In what way did you think that this new metric you've made up was relevant?

    And Senator McCain decided to literally take it to his grave.

    Truth is Trump isn’t even a billionaire. Most of his life style has been funded through loans.

    Yes it is, another clear indication that Donald Trump is an honorless shitbag.
