So the white house has fired back with the pettyness . The flag is at full staff lol..
I cant come to the funeral you dont get half staff flag.
This is pure entertainment..
You mean like saying the sitting President is not allowed at your funeral because you are a criminal and had been found out?
Like making your final act about sowing discord and division?

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.
He did more for the USA than your sorry arse ever will. [/quote]
Star. Those who served will always outpace those who stayed at home because of "bone spurs." The cowards and the ones who served is self evident. John served. Donny played the rich kid game and got a doctor to write him a note.
You might not like John's politics, but when it came down to it, he manned up. Donny was a pussy. He still is.
"Despite our differences on policy and politics, I respect Senator John McCain’s service to our country and, in his honor, have signed a proclamation to fly the flag of the United States at half-staff until the day of his interment," Trump said in a statement.
At the request of the McCain family, I have also authorized military transportation of Senator McCain's remains from Arizona to Washington, D.C., military pallbearers and band support, and a horse and caisson transport during the service at the United States Naval Academy.
