McCain's 106-Year-Old Mom to Attend His Washington Services

(Left-right) Cindy McCain, her son James McCain, and daughter Meghan McCain look on as the casket of the late Senator John McCain is loaded into a Hearse following his funeral service at the Washington National Cathedral, September 1, 2018 in Washington, DC.

Without naming Trump, who did not attend the service, Meghan McCain condemned the president in remarks that at times drew applause and came after she said her dad told her to "show them how tough you are" with her eulogy.

McCain's speech contrasted her father's legacy with the "opportunistic appropriation" and "cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly".

Fox News correspondent Garrett Tenney pointed out that Trump had responded to the funeral by tweeting: "Make America Great Again". "Because America was always great". A pilot, he was shot down over Vietnam and held as a prisoner of war for more than five years.

A week of mourning will end later this afternoon, when Senator John McCain is buried at the U.S. Naval Academy Cemetery in Annapolis. "What better way to honor John McCain than follow his example".

In her eulogy, Meghan McCain took a direct jab at President Trump and his campaign motto without repeating it.

"It's a politics that pretends to be fearless and tough but in fact is born in fear".

Mr McCain "served his country honourably", Mr Pence said, adding that Mr Trump "respected his service to the country". But at a service McCain created to break down rivalries and encouraged civility, Clinton and Cheney, two of their parties' sharpest partisans, drew stares.

They also argue that 'In a way, it was a fitting tribute, seeing as unlike Donald, John wasn't a petty man, and he didn't hold grudges.

But it was a rebuke of the president who wasn't there by McCain's daughter that stole the headlines.

Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger said at the service that "the world will be lonelier without John McCain", but that, "even in his parting, John has bestowed on us a much-needed moment of unity".

Among those in the front row at the cathedral are Barack and Michelle Obama, George and Laura Bush, Bill and Hillary Clinton, as well as Dick Cheney and Al Gore. The president did not attend Saturday's service and spent the morning sending tweets on other subjects.

Former Sen. Joe Lieberman, a Democrat-turned-Independent, recalled his friendship with McCain and spoke at length about how McCain had wanted to name him as a running mate during his 2008 presidential campaign. "You could disagree on substance", Biden said.

"He was just a tremendous man with a great heart and the (funeral) service was very fitting for the service that he provided for his nation", said Sajjan.

"Back", McCain wrote on the last page of his recent memoir, "where it began".
