But it is McCain’s attacks on Trump, including those in his new book “The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and Other Appreciations,” that have some Trump supporters criticizing a man who is dying of brain cancer. They don’t like it that McCain reportedly doesn’t want Trump attending his funeral, while former Presidents Bush and Barack Obama will deliver eulogies.
What do you expect? McCain and Trump don’t like each other, and I don’t know too many people who want people they don’t like at their funeral.
Trump assailed McCain during the 2012 primary (“I like people who weren’t captured,” Trump said of McCain). McCain turned around and voted against Obamacare repeal in 2017 despite urging from Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, delivering the bill-crushing vote with a theatrical middle-of-the-night thumbs-down.
