Ivanka and Jared Thought McCain Memorial 'Was A Great Tribute' Despite Trump-bashing Speeches

First daughter Ivanka Trump has broken ranks with her father over the death of Senator John McCain. The "very nice things" she said about the late politician not going unnoticed by his family, according to Senator Lindsey Graham.

Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner, unlike President Donald Trump, attended the memorial for Senator McCain, with Senator Lindsey Graham explaining that they were invited by the McCain family.

"Nobody that was at the funeral didn't get invited by the family. Ivanka said some very nice things about Sen. McCain after his passing. It was not unnoticed by the family," Graham said on Sunday in an interview with CNN's State of the Union, during which he insisted that he was not responsible for Ivanka and Jared receiving an invitation to the service.

"If you wanted to invite everybody that loved John McCain, you could have filled up Yankee stadium," Graham said of his late friend.

Ivanka and Jared reportedly had no public complaints about the memorial service, despite Trump supporters lashing out on social media over what they saw as negative references to the president during the memorial service. McCain's daughter Meghan McCain delivered a powerful speech about her father's legacy, and former President Barack Obama said McCain was bigger than the politics that too often trafficked "in bombast and insult."

"America does not boast because she does not have need to. The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again, because America was always great," Meghan McCain said at the service, which was held at Washington National Cathedral on Saturday, and prompted complaints from some Trump supporters—but not from Ivanka and Jared.

Indeed, former senator Joe Lieberman, who had a close friendship with both McCain and Graham, said he had spoken with Ivanka and Jared after the service and they did not appear to have an issue with anything that was said.

"At the end, I spoke to them too and there were no complaints. They felt that the whole service was a great tribute to him, and elevating," Lieberman told CNN. "Hopefully everybody is elevated by what happened there in the cathedral yesterday. And hopefully it will make the country better."
