    While President Trump was bad-mouthed left and right over the course of Sen. John McCain’s five-day funeral and remembrance ceremonies, he actually did the former senator and war hero a solid.

    McCain’s body was flown to Washington, D.C., on an aircraft that was approved by Trump. “The late Arizona senator’s casket was loaded onto one of the jets known as Air Force 2 — which is often designated for the VP or First Lady’s travel,” TMZ reported.


    Nice thing to do and I'm sure he knew he'd not get credit for it. Classy. God - 5 days, the longest 5 days of 2018, so far. Five day funeral and using the capitol Rotunda. Why such lavish treatment for a senator who wasn't everyone's favorite....

    I have a really hard time believing that the mccains would accept anything from the president. The fact that Trump would do this doesn’t surprise me at all. So did mccain really get flown on AF II? Or a C130?

    I'd bet it would be the VIP jet, ugh, escorts sitting there listening to the drone of a 130 for hours?

    But as the OP suggests, doubt Trump will get any good press from the media or if he does, they'll trivialize it saying he's trying to make up for his "mistakes". Don

    I believe President Trump to be a decent, generous (with his own money) and inclusive person. That he wants immigration laws enforced and America treated fairly in trade agreements seems to have driven some folks farther over the edge than they were prior to his taking office. His providing AF 2 to the McCains surprises me not in the least.

    C-47 they strapped it with chutes dumped it over lalaland.And when they landed gave them a empty box with used chicken buckets, McDonald wrappers and Cigar butts in it.And screwed it tight.It was called 'Operation Chit Drop"
    Rambo flew the Plane Norris dumped it over the side.
    it was the most costly operation since Son-Tay in 1971,At least that is what cnn might report or nbc& abc.
    This is the guy who revealed the whole plan to The Post.
    full story and pictures to be revealed The World well be shocked. Even Alex and Q do not know the full details yet.Glock talk gets it first.. 000015vy.jpg RON K.

    I wondered who paid for the" McCain World Tour Funeral"

    But since DJT signed off on it, I'll hate him for it, if it makes everybody happy.

    The White House Military Office organizes thes things, often without the direction of the President, and as a matter of protocol.

    It is most likely wrong to attribute this action to the President who likely did not know.

    It wasn't free.
    Trump negotiated to get 5 days of limelight back for the use of the jet.

    To be honest this anti-Trump Political event staged by McCains family, friends, cronies and phonys at his funeral is one of the most class-less things Ive ever seen in all my years.

    The guy wanted to bomb and start war's everywhere but all of a sudden he's the shining light for the left?

    Regardless what or who he was Whatever happened to dignified funerals without agenda's?

    Agreed. There was absolutely no reason to invoke Trump at all.
    However, based on his actions before passing, I think JM would have been a-ok with it. I lost a lot of respect for him during and after his presidential run. Unfortunate.

    Who paid for the F18 flyover? Yeah, I know, and it wouldn't have happened without approval.

    I am shocked how people diss McCain, while at the same time shower a draft dodger as some type of hero. In this thread he is made to look like Jackson a real hero.
