McCain hailed as hero, maverick at funeral

Trump BANNED! John Mc Cain told President NOT to attend his funeral in final SNUB

Here are images from Friday's ceremonies at the Capitol. While minutes before the sun had shone over the dome, as McCain, carried by an honor guard, ascended the steps, the clouds opened and rain poured down.

"Many, numerous families that wouldn't have made it to America made it here", he said.

Bush, who defeated McCain for the 2000 Republican presidential nomination, called McCain a "man of deep conviction and a patriot of the highest order" and a "friend whom I'll deeply miss".

"I always thought of John as a brother".

Dermer wrote on Twitter on Sunday, "Deeply saddened to hear the news about the passing of Senator John McCain, a great friend of Israel and a great champion of the US-Israel alliance".

McCain clashed openly with Trump, who mocked McCain for getting captured during the Vietnam War.

"He held fast to his faith in America through six decades of service. And understanding that as Americans we are a part of something much bigger than ourselves". "It's brutal, it's relentless... we have to remember how they lived, not how they died", he said.

Almost 40 percent of Republicans said that they had a somewhat or very unfavorable view of McCain, according to the poll, while only 15 percent of Democrats had an unfavorable view of McCain.

He explained how the two men met in the late 1970s, when Mr McCain was serving as a US Navy liaison officer to the Senate, whilst Mr Biden had already been elected.

Coca-Cola expands into coffee with $5.1 billion deal for Britain’s Costa
But it seems Coca-Cola swung in with an offer that was much more lucrative for Whitbread: the deal is worth £3.9 billion. Whitbread acquired Costa in 1995 for £19 million from founders Sergio and Bruno Costa when it had only 39 shops.


McCain's widow Cindy, his seven children and his 106-year-old mother Roberta McCain joined scores of members of Congress, state governors, diplomats and other dignitaries to bid the senator farewell. In 2017, shortly after his brain cancer diagnosis, McCain returned to Washington DC, where he cast a crucial vote against a Republican-led effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act - one of Obama's signature policy achievements.

McCain's lifelong friend and former Congressman Jim Kolbe placed a wreath by his side before Sen. "He could disagree on substance, but it was the underlying values that animated everything John did, everything he was".

McCain's wife, Cindy, widely seen as a possible candidate for appointment to succeed her husband, led a procession of 90 mourners past his casket. Graham sat in his own chair.

Arizona residents have been invited to honor McCain on Thursday by lining the route from the Capitol to the North Phoenix Baptist Church, where an honor guard will greet the hearse when it arrives. McCain was a member of the Academy's Class of 1958.

Former Arizona Attorney General Grant Woods, a longtime friend of McCain's and chief of staff to him when he was a U.S. Representative, honored the late senator with a eulogy that poked fun at his driving skills while also offering a hopeful look at what his legacy could be in this tumultuous time in American politics.

A man with a white beard stood on one corner holding a sign saying "Senator John McCain: Because character counts". He attended the United States Naval Academy from 1954 until 1958, training as a pilot.

Biden said that kind of attitude makes it "impossible to reach consensus". "We both lamented watching it change", he said.

On Thursday, Fitzgerald was among those who spoke at McCain's Phoenix-area memorial service, and he shared - with some jokes - how the two developed a mutual respect for each other despite obvious differences in their upbringing and appearance.

The Economist/YouGov poll surveyed 1,500 adults for three days directly following McCain's passing last Saturday, and contains a margin of error of +/- 3 percentage points. "And you know giving me advice on family and leadership and all these things I didn't necessarily think I needed but he saw that I needed it and he took it upon himself to kind of impart some of that wisdom to me". I have tried to serve our country honorably.
