Senator John McCain (R-AZ) will be remembered with a funeral fit for a president when he is laid to rest at the U.S. Naval Academy Cemetery in Annapolis, Maryland on Saturday, Sept. 1. McCain died at his Arizona ranch on Saturday, August 25, after a long battle with brain cancer. He was 81.

A black hearse was seen leaving McCain's ranch on Saturday. Hundreds of people lined roadways and overpasses for 50 miles to wave American flags at the hearse.

McCain's body will lie in state in the Arizona State Capitol Rotunda on Wednesday, Aug. 29, before being shipped to Washington, D.C., where it will lie in state in the Capital Rotunda on Friday, Aug. 31.

At least 25 speakers, including two former presidents -- George Bush and Barack Obama (pictured left with McCain) -- will give eulogies before the funeral procession heads to a state funeral at the Washington National Cathedral.

But one notable won't be in attendance: President Donald Trump.

McCain was a thorn in Trump's side since before Trump was elected president. The two men traded insults on Twitter and in the press after McCain objected to Trump calling illegal aliens "criminals" in 2016.

McCain made himself an even bigger pain in Trump's side after the election. The war hero and political icon got under Trump's thin skin by giving the decisive thumbs down vote that killed Trump's efforts to repeal ObamaCare on July 27, 2017.

McCain also annoyed the establishment GOP by refusing to give up his Senate seat in May. His death forces the Arizona governor to choose a senate replacement rather than allow the people of Arizona to elect his replacement.

McCain was considered a traitor within the GOP. McCain's daughter, Meghan slammed Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren for calling McCain a RINO -- an insulting acronym that stands for Republican In Name Only.

Twitter users criticized President Trump for recognizing McCain's life and death with a weak tweet over the weekend. Trump tweeted his "deepest sympathies and respect" to the McCain family, while First lady Melania Trump tweeted thanks to McCain for his service to the country.

The White House also riled up the Twitter masses by announcing Trump would honor McCain's choice to leave his name off his list of funeral attendees.

McCain began making his funeral arrangements in May, a year after he announced his cancer diagnosis.

A group of protesters gathered outside the Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia, where Trump played golf on Sunday.

Trump will likely play golf with friends on one of his golf courses around the time when former presidents eulogize McCain in Washington, D.C. next Saturday.

    McCain would have rose up and escorted his azz smooth out the church if he did soo.. trust no one will miss Tonald Dump at their funeral..Melania prolly has the same request in her will.. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/68bc52b2a4f54f3dc0d4dea29ec0c12c203c19b65d4d18beb2fbbd13d0be6a55.gif

  • GAPeach

    I'm surprised he's not going to attend. Normally if you tell him something, he does the polar opposite.

  • Rayne

    If he did attend his funeral after being told not to that whole church ? would be side eyeing ? him to death making him so uncomfortable.

  • ATL White Guy

    Knowing Trump he'll tweet that John McCain's death is fake news and then the crazy Qanon people will say it's all a conspiracy.

  • Yui

    Trump knows he wants to troll that funeral. ?

  • AmericanDream

    McCain allowed himself to be treated by republicans the way people with leprosy used to be treated in the 18th century . If he had put courage and principles over his desperation and sense of entitlement to be senator and president , he’d have quit the Republican Party .

    He’s dead (RIP) but that should also be the opportune time to discuss his legacy ; this is the man who voted against making MLK day a public holiday , this is the man who in his pathetic and desperate attempt to be president gave us Sarah Palin, in doing so he legitimatized and normalized the culture of virulent ignorance and glorification of illiteracy and conspiracy theories that’s so rampant in the Republican Party today .

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    RIP to John McCain.

    When a dying person tells you not to come to their funeral, shit is real.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    How embarrassing for Trump and America. Irrespective of how you feel about his politics, John Mccain was a respected politician. Specifically in his party. At least before it turned into an outright clown show. To have someone of his caliber ban the sitting President from his funeral...#shytshow.

  • Lady” Youngblood

    Lmfao????@melania has the same request in her will, it's a Damm shame if a person tells you I don't even want you at my funeral they really hated you're a$$

    Second time STRUMP has been told not to attend a funeral. THAT IS DISGUSTING AND EMBARRASSING FOR A PRESIDENT.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I didnt agree with his politcs, but McCain felt how he felt and would let you know. Very straight shooter. That and his POW status garnered respect from me and many others. American and abroad. For him to say he wanted his funeral Trump free speaks volumes.

  • Coy little wink

    RIP McCain...I like his style, burn that fool from the grave

    Isn't Trump the real RINO? As well as a draft dodger...tax evader...pucci grabber...

  • FukkFolks2018

    It starts tomorrow. It will be finished on Friday lol

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Very insightful post, but I don't believe that Palin was the genesis of the person who was responsible for bringing back the ignorance or glorified illiteracy or conspiracy theories.

    There has always been an anti-intellectual conspiracy stain in the conservative movement starting with the John Birch Society.

    I believe that those people may have seen a fellow traveler in Palin but she didn't invent them.

  • Logan Roberts

    I don't blame McCain you're not gonna make a spectacle at my funeral. Especially if we didn't like each other when I was alive. But yet I feel different when it comes to Patti & Gladys being at Aretha's funeral, even though she didn't care for them ?

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    This

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    OK I knew that Patti and Aretha had a beef between them but she and Gladys had petty words between themselves too?

    Wow!!

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Patti, Gladys Weren't Terrible like Trump, na, na. Trump Whole Nother Level.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    We all have disagreements. Doesn't always mean hate.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    All POW's should hate Dumps guts! Yeah they haven't forgotten the "He shouldn't have gotten caught bullshit.." When he kicks off they gone dig his grave put him in and replace the top soil with top grade Fertilizer...cuz you know he is going to be in hell talking about"I had the most people at my funeral..the most ever in the history of funerals! Hmmm maybe thats why he still here..the devil is like lets see if he accepts Christ in his life cuz I can't sit in hell with him for eternity...

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I didn't say 'hate'.

    That's why I used the word 'petty' because it's usually something insignificant when you look at it from the bigger scheme of things.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    But They Constantly tell Us, to Turn the other cheek. I be damn!!! I'm like McCain or harder, Dead or Alive!! You Are Treated Accordingly.

  • Logan Roberts

    But she didn't like them though?. Never said they were on the same level of scum as Trump.

  • AmericanDream

    That’s true , but Sarah palin was on the verge of becoming VP of the USA , thereby rewarding the anti intellectualism strain of the party that’s always existed as your rightfully pointed out . Before palin,these people were confined to just giving their votes and lashing out on talk radios

  • Logan Roberts

    I think because Gladys sided with Patti. It seems like Aretha only liked Chaka.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    You didn't, true. But we know Blacks will love you more at funerals.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    True and we know Blacks will show more Respect at funerals.

  • FukkFolks2018

    That is actually the oldest feud Aretha had. Since they were teens. Aretha went to Atlanta as a TEEN (Gladys is ATL born) and Gladys tried to introduce herself and shake her hand...and Aretha looked at her like she had grown a 2nd and 3rd head. Turned and walked off. It went on after Gladys moved to Detroit. And throughout the years.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Ok that was the story that Gladys was telling. She said she was 12 which would have made Aretha only 14 or 15.

    Wow Aretha had a lot of attitude for someone that young.

  • Mints

    The fact that the current president isn't invited to the funeral but prior presidents are welcome further cements Trump as a joke.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Its why I say she was true to who she was. She was petty from the start seems like. Dionne is her second longest feud. Since Aretha covered I Say A Little Prayer. And as a really extra petty gesture, Aretha had Cissy sing back up for that record. Who is related to Dionne lol. Really Patti pales in comparison to some of her original feuds lol.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Ok I thought the Dionne feud was recent and about something Dionne misspoke about Aretha at Whitney's funeral.
    I think Dionne called Aretha Whitney's grandmother instead of god mother and for some reason Aretha thought she had been insulted.
    These old divas are something else.

    This is one of the many reasons revealing how all these Trump supporters are not as patriotic, pro veteran as they pretend to be. He’s been disrespectful as hell to POW/KIA veterans, he is a spoiled, entitled draft dodger, but all these “patriots” still support him. They are full of sh*t. They are all just racist pigs at the end of the day.

    I would love it if other heads of state attended just to rub it in. I read President Obama is giving the eulogy.

  • P0shzZ0la

    BWAHAHAHA...so McCain the warmonger is dead. Or, so they say he is. Thank goodness Trump is not going to his funeral. I don't think he would go even if he were invited and rightfully so.

    "Throughout his career, McCain has found himself in hot water numerous times for making racist comments and taking hypocritical political stances. For example, McCain voted against MLK Day. McCain Voted Against Law Creating National Martin Luther King Holiday. In 1983, McCain voted against passing a bill to designate the third Monday of every January as a federal holiday in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. In 1994, McCain voted to prohibit federal funds for the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday Commission.

    McCain was full of hate. He lived for hate. After helping the US military massacre Vietnamese civilians in a borderline genocidal onslaught that killed nearly 4 million Vietnamese, McCain remained a proud lifelong racist. Here's what he said about the Vitenamese people: "I hate the g**ks. I will hate them as long as I live," McCain said. McCain ate, slept, and walked in hate.

    John McCain was an extreme right-wing life long warmonger too. In 1973, he spoke out to save Senate funding for Nixon’s secret carpet-bombing of Cambodia, which killed a half million people. He also heavily promoted the lies that led to the Iraq war. He endorsed the NATO bombing of Libya a North African nation that was well on its way to creating an international African currency backed by gold. He supported & armed the jihadists destroying Syria (another nation of people of color). He played a role in bringing neo-Nazis to power in Ukraine & backed Saudi Arabia’s genocide in Yemen. McCain's "mistakes" and "errors" resulted in hundreds of thousands of deaths but this won't matter because those deaths were Iraqi, Vietnamese, Palestinian, Yemeni. e.g. populations with zero purchase among US media elites. McCain posed with jihadist and anyone or anything that meant WAR. McCain was known as the "ISIS GodFather" and he was very loyal to the exceptionalness and hegemonic ambitions of the Bush-Cheney-Clinton-Rockefeller-Comey-Mueller-Obama and all the other factions within the Deep State schemes.

    Look people...once again STOP crying behind these people who mean no good for you or this country. Kneegrows always get it wrong and continuously lose out on everything. I'm glad Trump is not at this warmonger's funeral. Let all the corrupt criminals go and you can see who America's REAL ENEMIES ARE....! You people are fools to think Trump is powerless. He's doing just what needs to be done BEHIND THE SCENES while you uninformed sheep follow the main-stream-media.

    "Lanny Davis - the attorney for Michael Cohen, has massively backpedaled on "confident assertions" that Cohen would share information with investigators that President Trump knew of Russian efforts to undermine Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton - a lifelong friend of Davis'."

    The Washington Post reported on Sunday that Davis said in an interview that he is "no longer certain about claims he made to reporters on background and on the record in recent weeks about what Cohen knows about Trump's awareness of the Russian efforts." Davis told The Washington Post that he cannot confirm media reports that Cohen is prepared to tell special counsel Robert S. Mueller III that Trump had advance knowledge of the 2016 Trump Tower meeting -WaPo

    I'll always remember when that old white woman called President Obama an Arab at a campaign rally or something and Sen McCain snatched that mic out her crusty hand. He said not today granny.

  • Simone

    I had a co-worker who recently died. When he was alive, everyone thought he was a selfish, disloyal, disrespectful, mean, nasty bully. When he died, these same people said he was kind, generous and will be missed. They attended his funeral (not me). I hate phoniness. If you did not like someone in life, why pretend to love them in death. For this reason, I respect President Trump's realness. Even if he was invited to McCain's funeral, he would not attend. Why would he? All McCain did was trash and bash him.

  • Sandyb1117

    Trump said Mccain wasn't a war hero and Trump still feels that way. That's the reason why Mccain came after him. That's a slap in the face to someone who served this country and was beaten and tortured for years. Its seems crazy how they call people out for kneeling during the anthem because it disrespects the military, but the President will not acknowledge that Mccain was a war hero.

  • Elevated Soul

    One thing that has been made clear to me again is that many of you liberal fools have no business discussing politics. You have been made hella ignorant politically because you are brainwashed to the max and on top of that,you are dumb enough to watch Fake News and believe everything you see there....

    First off..................McCain was so bitter against President Trump until he uninvited him to his funeral as if President Trump planned to go in the first place.The saddest thing is that dude was on his deathbed thinking about President Trump.

    McCain colluded with The Alt-Left/Globalists and RINO's against our President. He walked around a fake dossier to the FBI and whomever else to plot against President Trump.Now of course you Alt-Left ZOMBIES have no clue what a dossier is.....

    The thing that's hilarious is how fake Democrats are.....You always hated McCain,now all of the sudden you fakes love him because he was jealous and hateful toward President Trump.Your Fake News got you thinking that President Trump didn't write condolences to the family but he did but unlike you fake democrats,he kept it general because he is not fake.

  • Vegas1989

    That was so funny. McCain had love for President Obama even when they didn't agree on things..

  • Simone

    Actually McCain started the fight. In 2015, Trump gave a speech about illegal immigrants from Mexico being criminals and that's why he will build the wall if elected. McCain denounced Trump and said he was "firing up the crazies". Trump then retaliated by saying he does not consider McCain a war hero because he was captured and he likes heroes who were not captured. You hit Trump, he hits back but he does not start fights.

  • Karen Brady

    Right? EXACTLY! And he said it. McCain said they didn't agree on some things but that DID NOT take away from who Pres O is.

  • Sandyb1117

    Most people could care less about the politics of this. But I will say that its pretty low and f!cked up to say that someone wasn't a hero while serving in the army and being kidnapped, tortured and almost killed. Trump is the President of the United States. That mutha is representing the whole country. People aren't saying they're in love with Mccain, people respect his integrity and standing up for the right things no matter what party he belonged too. People are mad about kneeling during the anthem because its disrespects the military. But now its ok to say f*ck you to someone who served the country? That's crazy! This is not about politics, its about human decency.

  • Sandyb1117

    The war hero comment outweighs all of that. It was flat out disrespectful. Its about human decency. Being kidnapped and tortured especially for this country is huge deal. Sometimes you have to learn how to walk away and be a bigger person. I don't agree with either party, but the war comment went too far. That's not about politics. That's personal.

  • Elevated Soul

    LOL @ you talking about most people could care less about politics in this. So now you think you speak for most people,huh?Bottom line is that I have seen Alt-Left zombies politicize this death because McCain hated President Trump just as you do.

    Get the he!! out of here with your fake concern about the military. This isn't even about the military and please stop acting as if you care about the military--->Okay!

    President Trump sent a message of condolences to a man who stated he didn't want him at his funeral.You snowflakes are trying to make McCain out to be a hero when his own fellow soldiers said he wasn't and even got 100 of them killed......You don't care no more for McCain no more than you care for President Trump,so stop the pretense.I love the fact that President Trump is real with his.

  • Elevated Soul

    These fools have no clue to what you speak on.....They are inundated with Fake News who have them dumb as a horse that think he barks like a dog.

    Even if the president doesn’t acknowledge that John McCain is a war hero, he should respect the fact that he went to war and fought for this country. He should also acknowledge the fact that McCain had the opportunity to leave early because of his father’s rank, but he didn’t, he stayed and continued to fight for this country.

    We know its not disrespecting the military. But the same people that say we are, can't even give a military vet some respect because he had beef wtih the President. I thought Trump said we don't respect the military when we kneel. He clearly disrespected Mccain by saying he's not a hero.

    McCain was a war hero but he was also a big mouth. He sang like a bird when tortured. He also let down the GOP by picking Sarah Palin and defending Obama during a debate. Meanwhile the Dems spoonfed Hilary the debate questions.

    I agree. Have that SAME ENERGY when someone dies. As far as I'm concerned, Aretha Franklin did more for the world than Senator McCain.

  • Miss Thang

    he wasn't a war hero. Didn't he give information to his captors after being tortured? How is that a hero?

  • Miss Thang

    why do lack people misinterpret things? McCain didn't have "love" for Obama. He was just worried about how that comment would sound to the rest of the electorate. He was on the campaign trail.

  • Miss Thang

    who the fuck cares? McCain is not the end all, be all. He's dead and gone. It's election year and people are being distracted by this bullshit.

    I agree 100%

    High 5!!! - McCain was a scoundrel, AND a racist. We The People need to stop celebrating these pieces of shit because Massa says so because we are a FREE THINKING PEOPLE! McCain Scandals:

    Take 1 - McCain was NOT a war hero - he graduated 5th from the bottom of his naval class and was continually protected by his father who was a 4 star Admiral in the Navy. McCain was the direct cause of 133 deaths on his own ship, and was never reprimanded. He opened the cockpit, and in his haste to exit the aircraft to chew someone out about his having to ” wait”, he hit the button that released his live bombs onto the deck of the Forrestal. While his fellow sailors were fighting the fire, McCain went to the pilot’s lounge below decks and watched the men fight the fire on closed circuit TV.

    Take 2 - Keating 5 - helped swindle life savings from countless Americans in the Savings and Loan scandal of the 1980’s.

    Take 3 - His wife Carol Shepp suffered debilitating injuries in car accident and was disfigured - he left her for rich girl Cindy McCain who is an heiress to an Arizona Brewing fortune!

    Take 4 - By McCain’s own account, after three or four days in Vietnamese captivity, he divulged specific military information: he gave the name of the aircraft carrier on which he was based, the number of US pilots that had been lost, the number of aircraft in his flight formation, as well as information about the location of rescue ship. That's why they called his azz Songbird McCain!

    He HATED Trump as Trump was able to become PRESIDENT and McCain was never elected! McCain was so selfish that he would NOT give up his Senate seat even though he KNEW he was dying so that We The People could get some much needed legislature passed - JUST HATEFUL! Don't cry for this piece of shit - CELEBRATE the DEATH OF HIS HATE!

    Most of the prominent Black people LOVED Trump until he was elected president - then Massa threatened to ostracize them. They are all full of shit! Trump is not guilty of anything but NOT TAKING SHIT from ANY of them as he knows all their DEEP DARK SECRETS. Hell Hillary and Bill went to Trumps wedding to Melania. - Don't believe the HYPE! It is a distraction to keep us Black Folk on the plantation. But WE ARE FREE! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b67f50bd1b43a14dbd09f0b08aa8b00e655b5400d83e2a19f6d5c894b86e3a11.jpg

    That is why they called him SONGBIRD MCCAIN - His injuries were NOT from being beaten but from crashing his jet as he was a terrible pilot - Graduated 5th from the bottom of his naval class.

  • facingrealit1

    I don't need to like his azz to get policies passed that will help me and mine. Negroes want to 'feel good" about the people we elect and they end up laughing all the way to the bank. Please tell me how Obama made 24 million dollars while making 400k and don't give me that he sold that many books BS. Negro was/is a CROOK that made us feel good while he raped us blind. Everybody got paid but US. Gays can marry, women got equal pay...he couldn't even do prison reform KNOWING they are full of black men in there on F'd up charges. Trump is trying to free us and we out here resisting. - Makes no damn sense at all!

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    His daughter said even with that like her father she still showed compassion for Cindy and his children.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    And weeks and weeks

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Lawd I just thought of that Cissy gif when she was singing background for Reefuh some years ago ???

  • MRiGOThim

    "President Trump will honor his wish not to attend" lmao #PETTY

  • dontgetblocked

    The Locked Up Abroad episode shows how he snitched on a fellow prisoner who had been locked up tortured for years. He was always wishy washy and ran one of the worst political campaigns in history. Plus he has battled cancer in various forms for decades before it finally took him. That's why he was a risky candidate...he was old and sick.

  • dontgetblocked

    Did they bury Aretha yet? I'm tired of hearing about this old bitter man. Ya'll hated him ten years ago when he ran against Obama. I voted for him and predicted there were worse candidates. Now we have President Trump. All of sudden, Bush and McCain weren't so bad. Too late. We elected President Trump because McCain was weak just like he was weak when he snitched as a POW.

  • dontgetblocked

    I'm shocked by the support for McCain. He was a snitch as a POW. He was the worst GOP candidate for president ever. These same heifers hated him ten years ago when he ran against Obama...now he's the greatest man ever. Who would go into the next world with hate on their heart and uninvite the President of the US to his funeral. Cool. While you're dead ...Trump is the most powerful man on earth....a title you gave away to Obama by picking Sarah Palin as a running mate and defending Obama during your election debates. And the dumbazz asks Obama to eulogize him? Get the phuck out of here! McCain was a traitor during the war and a traitor to the GOP!

  • dontgetblocked

    Did you vote for McCain in 2008? That's what I thought. Go somewhere with your fake support.

  • dontgetblocked

    Did you show empathy in 2008 when he ran against Obama? Silence. That's what I thought.

  • dontgetblocked

    My grandmother taught me that. Don't make like folks were angels when they were devils on earth.

  • dontgetblocked

    Do your research on McCain. There's a reason why he was in better shape than his fellow prisoners...snitched!

  • dontgetblocked

    Did you have this same energy for McCain when he ran against Obama? Thought not!

  • dontgetblocked

    They don't get it. These are the same Obama sheep who bashed McCain ten years ago.

  • dontgetblocked

    Well said! He wrecked his plane, was captured and snitched like a three year old. Came back to America and got elected as a conservative Republican. He is not the black community's hero. Where was all this fake support when he was running for President in 2008?

  • dontgetblocked

    Only an evil mofo would uninvite someone to his funeral. How petty.

  • dontgetblocked

    They loved Trump. He could really call some of these folks out ...but he knows he's the winner. Why bother?

  • dontgetblocked

    Why would you want to go to your enemies funeral?

  • dontgetblocked

    Let's not forget that Aretha was a no show to Whitney's funeral. Aretha was a bish...now she's just a dead bish.

  • dontgetblocked

    He caved after three days. Other prisoners had been tortured and starved for years but never snitched. Watch Locked Up Abroad.

  • facingrealit1

    Absolutely. They use to line up trying to get on Apprentice. Now all of a sudden he is a racist. - It is so sad that people are buying into that narrative. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1566691f811583c6cb293a2a9f3d71eaba9b0dec0daa1743e1798a7fcfffaf07.jpg

  • facingrealit1

    That is EXACTLY what I thought as well! Petty as HELL!

  • dru and neil

    I’ve heard this before, but read it was a couple years not two days besides, even if it was in the first hour the question still remains, if you haven’t been to war, and been taken by the enemy, how can you criticize a POWs actions? How do you KNOW what you would do? And why did they keep him five years if he gave up valuable information in exchange for release in the first 48 hours. There all kinds of stories floating around in reference to this incident.

  • ImWoke

    Regardless of how I felt when he was running for a political office. My current energy is for a deceased man that fought for this country and deserves respect from everyone that resides in this country.

  • P0shzZ0la

    THANK YOU............!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • P0shzZ0la

    Great informative post....!

  • P0shzZ0la

    Thank You.....! They even made a song once called "Donald Trump Black Version." Black folks were all over Trump. They claim that Trump is so racist yet these same people follow behind white liberal's racist agenda. These people are delusional and there's no help for them.

  • P0shzZ0la

    Yes it is sad....they're totally brainwashed with no critical thinking skills at all....!

  • P0shzZ0la

    EXACTLY....!

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    She is right!!! They have Added another day for public viewing which will be Thursday at the church.

  • Look@m3

    Wow...you know its bad when you are thought of enough to not have your presence at the funeral. Who thinks about who they don't want at their funeral. Bruh, that's crazy! That's all I got man......so was he on his dying bed and made t his request known? I would feel like crap if someone thought that much of me.

  • Rhondalousey

    If he stop talking off and being so insulting he wouldn't be that bad. I dont know.
