Trump Trashed for Invoking McCain’s Funeral in Latest Attacks on the Late Senator: ‘What the Actual F*ck?’
President Donald Trump continued lashing out at the late Senator John McCain today, this time complaining about how he was not even given a thank you for giving the war hero the funeral he wanted.
Take a wild guess how well that’s going over:
Every single senator should speak up regarding their former colleague, Senator McCain. No matter the side. They also should censure POTUS on his latest remarks. This would make the statement: we must be better than this.
Anything else is cowardly and speaks to a lack of honor.

The dead man I've been dumping on didn't thank me from beyond the grave for passively aggressively approving his funeral.

Your move, every GOP Senator.
You served with John McCain. He was your colleague, your friend. Whether you found him inspiring or irascible, whether he was friend or foe, you respected his conviction, his honor, his service.
Find your spine and slap back at the President. Now. https://t.co/XD620AP0uH

There’s speaking ill of the dead and then there’s reproaching the dead for not thanking you for carrying out their funeral plans. https://t.co/EPbkTs08Q9

And here he is demonstrating how it's possible to be an asshole and a crybaby at the same time. https://t.co/69A4nGyksy

For whatever reason, John McCain is the name for Trump's pain. He talks about him as if he's in the same room as him – right now.

What the actual fuck? hey @realDonaldTrump you fucking faux bone spur lying traitorous coward. John earned his send off, the old fashioned way. He served his country ALL of his adult life & suffered for doing so. Can't wait to be part of the majority of Americas kicking your ass. https://t.co/J82j2WMTDg
