Trump Supporters Rip John McCain’s Funeral Service Over Trump Criticisms: ‘PATHETIC’

Sen. John McCain‘s memorial service featured moving tributes from former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, Henry Kissinger, Joe Lieberman, and perhaps most memorably, the Arizona senator’s daughter Meghan McCain.

Though President Donald Trump wasn’t invited to the memorial service, and his name was never mentioned, the eulogies served as a loud rebuke of his presidency and worldview.

“The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great,” Meghan McCain said in her powerful and tearful speech, drawing applause.

“So much of our politics can seem small and mean and petty,” Obama said. “Trafficking in bombast and insult, phony controversies and manufactured outrage. It’s a politics that pretends to be brave and tough, but is instead born of fear. John called on us to be bigger than that, to be better than that.”

Bush said McCain “detested the abuse of power and could not abide bigots and swaggering despots.”

The pointed rejection of Trumpism did not sit well with the president’s supporters. While no one currently working for the White House thought it wise to bash a senator’s funeral service and its grieving participants, many prominent Trump supporters unleashed.

Loudest perhaps was Sebastian Gorka, former deputy assistant to the president, who ripped the ceremony as “PATHETIC” and “utterly uncouth.”

Fox News host Mark Levin ripped the media for amplifying the memorial and calling out Trump for golfing during the service:
