Well it was her own fathers funeral ... it wasn't classy and it was right in there with B grade Kathy g and Sarah Silverman.

No problems, and I am sure you understand not everyone thinks the same, myself I could not give 2 hoots, I just find it ironic to use the word classy when defending Mr Trump or in this case attacking someone who opposes Mr Trump, it was her families funeral after all, OP often defends "right to free speech" guess she excercised hers in that moment.
I can see this thread is not for me as I am not echoing my love for Mr Trump, I will leave you guys to debate her wrongs.

The big question that keeps going through my head is if McCain was friends with Trump would his huge funeral events event have happened? I mean no less than 5 grandiose events so far with the left in full support. I'm thinking this is actually another poke at the President...its all about 2020 in their books.
On the other hand they might be morning a great liberal Senator too, but I get the feeling all the coverage is due to Trump and McCain really disliking each other.

If so obvious he was a traitor, why wasn't McCain found guilty of treason and put to death. Another failure in America?
The prisoners at Son Tay got to spend more time outside than in other camps
because the North Vietnamese were enlarging the compound, building a new
interrogation room and a small kitchen-dining hall for the guards. Before
Mo Baker arrived and began his enthusiastic assault on the brick pile, Ralph
Gaither and the other POWs had been put to work building a new compound
wall, about 60 feet beyond the north wall that lay just outside the Opium
Den and Beer House. The interrogation room Mo Baker was breaking up bricks
for and another small cellblock were being built just inside the new wall.
The North Vietnamese were improving Son Tay in other ways. They had the
prisoners plant two steel pipes to hold poles for a volleyball net-so the
guards could play, not the prisoners. One day, Air Force Captain Richard C.
Brenneman, a November 1967 shootdown, brashly shimmied up the volleyball
pole, right in the middle of the compound, and took a look outside the
walls. It was "pretty obvious," a big "no no." A guard in the tower by the
front gate spotted him. The North Vietnamese were "irritated." They threw
Brenneman "under the tower" - a favorite form of torture at Son Tay.
Brenneman was locked up in a small shack for 30 days, baking by day,
freezing at night, choking in the stench of his own excrement. The guards
hauled him out only long enough to beat him when he refused to admit that he
had climbed the pole on anything but a whim. Brenneman took it well, but
finally got an order from the camp's SRO to write an apology to the North
Vietnamese before they broke him and extracted something critical, like the
real purpose of his trip up the pole, or communication methods and codes.
Brenneman wrote the note. It said something harmless like "I'm sorry I was
a bad boy," and the camp commander ordered him to be released.

Would you care to address why john did not come home earlier than he did givin he had several opportunities but he choose to stay in prison?That is what sticks out to me and seems to contradict your post about him. That and the fact he was beaten and tortured while in captivity according to others and himself.
