The behavior on the Beltway is bewildering at best in 2018, with any number of salacious schemes or preposterous plots popping off at all hours of the night.
This escalation of eccentricity comes to us courtesy of Donald Trump; the nation’s first Citizen President of the modern era. With no political background to speak of, and a fairly substantial personal business resumé, The Donald stormed into office with his agenda from the citizenry. This rightfully scared the bejeezus out of the D.C. swamp dwellers, who have been slithering from post to post, collecting tax payer fortunes and redistributing it into the corporate sector.
Of his enemies on the Hill, few have been as vociferously boisterous about their disdain for Donald Trump as John McCain has.
McCain, whose liberal “republican” character is struggling to mesh in Congress today, has been spending a great deal of energy “resisting” the President as well, leading some to wonder if this behavior is conducive to his ailing health.
Now it has been revealed that not only does John McCain plan to leave this earthly vessel rather soon, but he plans on sending one more figurative middle finger to Trump on his way out the door.
Confidants of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., told the White House that President Trump won’t be invited to the ailing senator’s funeral, according to a new report.
Plans for McCain’s funeral, according to the New York Times, include an invite for Vice President Mike Pence, but not the president. The service will be held at Washington’s National Cathedral.
Trump and McCain have had an embattled relationship during the president’s time in the White House.
McCain, 81, is currently battling an aggressive brain cancer. He’s been recovering from treatment and surgery at his home in Arizona in recent months.
In the words of a federal judge who was lambasting Bobby Mueller this week, “C’mon man!”.
This move is so final in its emotion that it can be difficult to utter the truth about its nature, but, it is in fact petty.
