Wow what a petty and juvenile move by the leader of the country.

Despite personal issues or grudges, he should be adult enough to take the high road here and represent himself as if he has at least a little honor.

I find this disgusting behavior.

Flying the flag at half mast is honoring McCain.

Though he sure the eff don't deserve it.

Why would the potus choose to piss off the people that could vote for impeachment.

It is a popularity contest and this is not the way to win.

If he stays the coarse the next act in line with this will be to not sign the bill to rename some building after McCain.

The white house just followed protocol.

The federal code states that the flag shall be lowered on the day of death and the following day for a sitting member of Congress dies. Its been 48hrs so the flag is returned to full staff. Same thing happened on military basses etc.

According to Wikipedia:


Under 4 U.S.C. § 7(m) and established traditions by Presidential proclamations, the flag of the United States is to be flown at half-staff on rare occasions, in the following circumstances:[59]

-On the day of death and the following day for a Member of Congress.


McCain died on the 25th (the day of death), the flag was at half-staff on the 26th (the following day).

So Trump followed traditional protocol, doing exactly what he was supposed to do, yet people still have an issue?

Jeeze you guys will make a stink over anything.

LOL is right.

The only reason McCain is en vogue at the moment is because he supposedly dissed Trump from his grave.

Although they never gave much thought toMcCain to begin with or they would have elected him the two times he ran for prezidente.

That is exactly right. The WH followed protocol.

Besides, they know something the public doesn't know (yet) and probably most of Congress doesn't know. My personal thought is that the WH was measured with the honor. He got no more and no less. There's a reason.

I'm not sure why the asshole deserved any half staff time in the first place. "We The People paid the deceased bastard for decades to play grab ass with his cronies in DC, he's dead so we should be in mourning over his passing" is what's expected here? Hell no! We should fly the flag higher to observe one less worthless parasite latched onto it.

I refrained from bad mouthing Songbird in his ATS "DING DONE THE sonuva BITCH IS DEAD" thread, but I'll speak my mind here. Cindy and Meghan McCain's loss is our gain. The USA freed itself from a terrorist supporting, foreign enemy aiding and comforting, traitor Saturday afternoon. Whatever imaginary or media manufactured "hero" Songbird was died many, many years ago. His mortal coil stubbornly hung on a couple more decades. We didn't lose a damn thing with him leaving this world.

2008 he also made sure Obama won the presidency... im sure many on that side of the aisle remember him and love him for that even today.

Our country's Forefathers aren't current rolling in their graves. They're presently beating the piss out of McCain's soul before it is swept up by St Peter and pipe bombed to Hell where it belongs.

Ever since the Palin/McCain days, McCain wasn't my favorite by any stretch of the imagination....

But Trump, the draft dodging coward, can't even polish McCains shoes.


Palin/McCain that made me vote for Obama. Damn, I have been sorry but I couldn’t vote for either of those two.

It is their shiny object of the day. Relieves the pressure to formulate winning strategies.
