Donald Trump Played Golf During John McCain's Funeral

While friends and family and virtually every powerful person in Washington, D.C., attended the Saturday memorial service of longtime Republican Senator John McCain in Washington, D.C., President Donald Trump headed to his northern Virginia golf club.

Trump, who disliked and often insulted the Arizona senator for criticizing him, was not invited to attend McCain’s funeral. Former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama gave  speeches, as requested by McCain before he died August 25. 

As of August 25, the president had spent more than a quarter of his presidency at one of his own golf courses. 

Without mentioning the president by name, McCain’s daughter, Meghan, took a swipe at Trump during her Saturday morning tribute to her father, saying “ The America of John McCain is generous and welcoming and bold. She is resourceful and confident and secure. She meets her responsibilities, she speaks quietly because she is strong. America does not boast because she has no need to,” she added.

Meghan went on to say that “The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great.” The line caused the audience to applaud. If the words sound familiar, it’s because they’re from Trump’s signature 2016 campaign slogan of “Make America Great Again.”

Trump was seen wearing his “Make America Great Again” hat Saturday morning, according to Yahoo! Sports.
