Meghan McCain…, I like you…, but you are your father’s daughter.

I like Meghan McCain.  She normally addresses issues with conservative common sense, while being surrounded everyday on “The View” by a lot of liberal foolishness.

She is also very defensive of her late father, Senator John McCain, and I admire her for that, even though her father evolved over his 36 year Senatorial career…, and not for the better. But he was her father after all, and you can’t fault her for that.

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “During a segment on Tuesday’s show, Abby Huntsman said she felt sorry for President Trump’s adult children when reading a recent piece in The Atlantic about infighting among the siblings, but McCain didn’t feel the same way.”

‘“No offense, but they crashed my dad’s funeral. They get nothing from me,’ McCain said. ‘They’re not good people.’”

“[President] Trump’s daughter Ivanka and son-in-law [Jared] Kushner were in attendance when [John] McCain was laid to rest last year at Washington National Cathedral after a battle with brain cancer.”

Isn’t that a little harsh, Meghan?  “Not good people?”

I have to say, Meghan, how do you “crash” a funeral?

I mean, aren’t people allowed to come to someone’s funeral and pay their respects?

As far as I know, most funerals don’t send out invitations.

I think you should actually give Ivanka and her husband some credit for attending your father’s funeral, and at least representing her family and her father, The President, knowing that her father was not welcome there.

“The View” co-host notably took a subtle jab at the president, who had a longstanding feud with her father, when delivering her eulogy at the funeral.”

“McCain said that her father’s passing, ‘Represented the passing of American greatness. The real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly, nor the opportunistic appropriation of those who lived lives of comfort and privilege while he suffered and served.’”

I get it.  You’re proud of your father, and you see him in the best light.

But is his funeral really the place run down other people?

Shouldn’t a funeral be a celebration of the life of the person who has died?

I don’t think you did your father’s memory any favors by re-emphasizing any disagreements between your father and President Trump.

I feel it showed a lack of class actually.

In 2015, after McCain had said Trump’s platform had “fired up the crazies,” Trump retaliated by saying, “He’s not a war hero.  He’s a war hero because he was captured?  I like people that weren’t captured.”

John McCain is the one who started this feud…, President Trump just finished it, like he usually does.

John McCain demonstrated, again, that he stood firmly with “the establishment forces,” and not with the disenfranchised American people.

President Trump also regularly refers to McCain’s late night vote to kill off a bill to reform ObamaCare, which is something he promised to do, and promoted doing, before his most recent re-election.

It was just another case of “swampy” John McCain showing his true “RINO” (Republican In Name Only) colors.

Sorry, Meghan, but it was what it was.

At a taping of the “The View” later in the week, the co-hosts were previewing this week’s Democratic debates. When the topic turned to some of the candidates outside of the frontrunners tier, Meghan McCain took some digs at the longshots said she “finds some 2020 Democratic candidates laughable.”

Now there’s my girl!

John McCain and his family showed their true colors at his funeral.

And what are the McCain family colors?

Blue (vs. red)…, and yellow.

In yet another display of classlessness, the McCain family snubbed John McCain’s running mate for the presidency in 2008.

According to Brooke Singman of Fox News, “Sarah Palin says it was a ‘gut punch’ not to be invited to the funeral of her 2008 running mate, the late Senator John McCain, last year.”

“Palin, who was tapped as McCain’s pick for vice president during the 2008 race, opened up about the funeral during an interview on ‘Good Morning Britain.’”

‘“I was kinda surprised to be publicly disinvited to the funeral.  I think that was an unnecessary step,’ Palin told Piers Morgan. ‘They didn’t have to embarrass me and embarrass others.  That was all weird.  I hope that doesn’t happen to other people.  It’s kind of a gut punch.’”

“McCain, who died last August from brain cancer, reportedly planned his own funeral.”

Well that’s not vain at all is it?

“According to reports, Palin learned she was not invited to the services through an intermediary, not directly from the McCain family.”

Stay classy (yellow) McCain family.

It just goes to show that John McCain had to hold his RINO nose when selecting the straight shooting conservative, Sarah Palin, to run with him in 2008.

In McCain’s book titled “The Restless Wave,” he wrote that he regretted choosing Palin as his running mate instead of his close friend, former Senator Joe Lieberman of Connecticut.

Now here is something John McCain said that I think you can believe!

Lieberman was a democrat, had been Al Gore’s running mate back in 2000.  McCain and Lieberman were establishment “swamp rat” brothers from different mothers.

Then, adding insult to injury, not only did the McCains specifically not invite Sarah Palin to the funeral (as well as President Trump, which was more understandable), it turns out that John McCain called Barack Obama personally to ask him if he would deliver one of the eulogies at his funeral.

So he doesn’t invite the person who ran with him in a presidential election, but he not only invites, but has the guy deliver his eulogy who beat him in the election?

Cuckoo!  Cuckoo!

Yes my friends…, John McCain definitely showed his true colors to be blue (vs. red)…, and yellow of course.

Singman adds that, “When he died, Palin posted a pair of tweets touting McCain and his record.”

‘“Today we lost an American original,’ she wrote. ‘Sen. John McCain was a maverick and a fighter, never afraid to stand for his beliefs.  John never took the easy path in life – and through sacrifice and suffering he inspired others to serve something greater than self.’”

And “later, she wrote: ‘John McCain was my friend. I will remember the good times. My family and I send prayers for Cindy and the McCain family.’”

Kudos to Sarah Palin for taking the high road here, but I hate to tell you that “friend” thing was a one way street.

John McCain used you, then disposed of you.

John McCain was a member of the “establishment,” “swamp rat” fraternity through and through, and neither Sarah Palin nor President Trump were welcome at that party.
