    The Left are always crying about, "why won't you criticize members of your own party"? While they march in lock step. Then when we do; they piss and moan about it. McCain for example...
    Judging by those who are most saddened by his passing, it's easy to tell where his loyalty really laid. McCain was a dyed in the wool globalist, as his farewell message speaks clearly; and the definitive example of a RINO.

    They stick closer together than two convicts in a jail cell.

    Indeed. You get Joe Biden up there saying how we need not to be so tribal and divided, and then refuse to invite Sarah Palin to the funeral.

    We all know the implication of not inviting Sarah Palin, for she was picked by John to appeal to conservatives. However, now that he can no longer use her like a woman uses a tampon, he just discards her and makes derogatory comments about what a horrible decision it was to choose her as a VP.

    So be it. It's time to purge the GOP of anyone who is not a conservative.

    The lines have been drawn.

    Yawn, guy, the only reason why you are upset is that his funeral exposed how small and petty Trump is.

    The sad thing about the GOP is that it rejects a truly great man like McCain and idolized a truly awful one like Trump.

    The funeral was exploited for political purposes. Pathetic.

    One wonders if McCain helped to set it up that way. You know, in a final middle finger to Trump for Trump standing up for himself when attacked by his own party members who were trying to play both sides of the isle, and this when only one side should have been taken in opposition of because some issues were deep in Demon-crat territory.

    Trump was wanting the weak Republicans to finally get a spine again, but instead they attacked him thinking he wouldn't dare attack back. McCain undoubtedly figured that his toughness as a former war soldier and a Vietnam veteran would cause Trump to fear having a tough response if he McCain was in the fight or was in opposition of Trump in order to help Demon-crats oppose him as well.

    The voters had had enough, and they chose Trump to fix things in the country, but the entrenched establishment or deep state wasn't having any of what the voters wanted, because of course they know better than the voters always, and they figure that they always will know best.

    Sad that McCain got caught up in it, but it is what it is. RIP McCain, and now you are free from the bullcrap to be with your friends and family members who have went on before you. Hope your reunion is a grand one. All will have been forgiven us, and you are in the hands of the creator and our maker now. May he have mercy upon us all.

    No, I'm just pointing out where the GOP has gone wrong.

    McCain is a man of honor and decency. Served his country in Vietnam, endured horrid things as a POW, married his wife Cindy and stayed married for 40 years. Worked selflessly to improve the country. Some of his ideas weren't terribly thought out (McCain-Feingold), but they came from a good place.

    Then you have Trump. Avoided Vietnam on a dubious medical claim, cheated on all three of his wives, and had a career of perpetual self-promotion and petty scams.

    And which of these two men does the GOP admire?
