Vermont delegation reacts to John McCain’s death

Vermont delegation reacts to John McCain’s death

At the time of the infamous Access Hollywood tape leak - which recorded Trump boasting about grabbing women "by the p***y" - McCain said, "It's not pleasant for me to renounce the nominee of our party".

The McCain-Trump relationship grew heated in 2015 when McCain said Trump's candidacy had "fired up the crazies". According to multiple media reports, he nixed a statement drafted by administration staffers that would have lauded McCain's stellar record of military service.

"The damage inflicted by President Trump's naivete, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is hard to calculate", McCain said at the time.

In May, CNN reported McCain did not want Trump at his funeral.

"Melania arranged for some handsome white lilies and roses to be sent to Cindy McCain as soon as she learned the sad news of John's death, along with a card expressing her condolences". "Our hearts and prayers are with you!"

Joe Gruber, of Anthem, Ariz., holds an American flag at an overpass along Interstate 17 as he and dozens of others wait for the procession with the hearse carrying the late Arizona Sen.

In July 2017, McCain was diagnosed with a tumour called a glioblastoma, which is an aggressive type of brain cancer but returned to the Senate after his diagnosis and cast a pivotal vote against a Republican bill to undo the Affordable Care Act - Obamacare. "We must never allow an erosion of the Senate's ability to do that".

Instead, both the president and vice-president offered their condolences to the senator's family via Twitter. BTW, the flag was raised after a day at half staff but Trump clearly bowed to the outrage and pressure.

But Trump, who in 2015 derided McCain's five years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam by saying "I like people who weren't captured", nixed the plans despite pleas from Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and Chief of Staff John Kelly, the Post wrote. He won the nomination fair and square. I will always treasure the constant friendship he showed to the people of Israel and to me personally.

Mr McCain's body will lie in state in the Arizona State Capitol on Wednesday and at the US Capitol Rotunda on Friday, giving his colleagues and the public a chance to pay their respects.

McCain was widely celebrated as a prisoner of war after his plane was shot down over Hanoi in 1967, and a few months earlier, he, then a Navy pilot, had survived a deadly fire on the USS Forrestal, an aircraft carrier.

His funeral ceremony will take place on Saturday at the National Cathedral, where former Presidents George W Bush and Barack Obama are expected to deliver eulogies.

"It's atrocious", Mark Corallo, a former spokesman for Trump's legal team and a Republican strategist, told The Post.
