It's still hard to digest Trump's McCain comments

  • Report: Hatch calls McCain request that Trump not attend his funeral 'ridiculous'

John McCain reportedly doesn't want President Trump to go to his funeral.

Hatch also told reporters Tuesday that he sent a letter to McCain. "He has a great team around him", she said on ABC's The View, which she co-hosts.

In his new memoir to be released later this month, McCain offers a harsh assessment of Trump's leadership, and says he feels less constrained to share his thoughts because he is not seeking reelection.

McCain and Trump have had a rough relationship, particularly during the 2016 presidential primary, when Trump said McCain - a POW for years in Vietnam - was not really a war hero because he was captured.

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) thinks it's "ridiculous" ailing Sen. He called the process bad, arguing that the only repeal bill he could support was one that had been through the usual bipartisan debate. But he acknowledged that it was up to McCain and said, "I think John should have his own wishes fulfilled with regard to who attends the funeral".


McCain, a Republican from Arizona, was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer in July 2017.

"I'd like everybody to take a collective breath and chill out on my dad for a second - especially Orrin Hatch", she said on the show. McCain writes this will be his last term and "it's been quite a ride". While the younger McCain flew home over the weekend, news broke that the senator was beginning to make funeral arrangements. McCain lost the race to Barack Obama.

"I agree with the daughter", Hatch told the Washington Post on Tuesday, in a unusual turn of phrase.

Donald Trump seems to be taking the high road when it comes to this very sick and morbid headline news, he's completely ignored McCain's request. In other words, McCain was demanding something that would ensure the defeat of any attempt to gut ObamaCare. Recently US media reported that close to the McCain party is informed of the "black list" of persons at the funeral of the Senator-Republican.
