Former President’s Barack Obama and George W. Bush to Speak at John McCain’s Funeral, Trump Not Invited
By Niele Anderson
Published August 27, 2018

Donald Trump has managed to get disinvited to two prominent funerals in his first term. First he was banned from former first lady Barabra Bush’s funeral and now a firm “no invite” at the request of John McCain’s wishes before he passed. McCain will have Bush and Obama eulogize him. Both former president’s defeated McCain in his pursuit to be president of the the United States.

One of McCain’s last noble acts was to vote NO on the repeal of the Affordable Care Act also known as Obamacare. Among the black community mixed emotions are felt for the Senator who voted against Dr. Martin Luther King’s national holiday. Many also feel his choosing Sarah Palin  as his vice president running mate opened up the door for the resurgence of the KKK, Alt-Right and Donald Trump.

Watch tributes and get the latest news regarding the Senator nicknamed Maverick,  funeral arrangements.
