Orrin Hatch to dying John McCain: ‘Ridiculous’ that you’re not inviting Trump to your funeral

So Sen. Orrin Hatch is now second-guessing the funeral plans of a literal dying man.

As many media outlets have reported, John McCain does not want Donald Trump at his funeral … because … well, who the fuck would? If anyone could make someone else’s funeral all about himself, Trump could.

But that’s not good enough for Hatch. Proving that congressional Republicans — even the ones on their way out of Congress — will go to all possible lengths to bow and scrape before their ocher overlord, Hatch recently vomited this pabulum:

“Well, he’s the president of the United States and he’s a very good man. But it’s up to [McCain]. I think John should have his own wishes fulfilled with regard to who attends the funeral.”

When asked about McCain’s desire to keep Trump away from his memorial service, Hatch said, “I think it’s ridiculous.”

Look, Sen. Hatch. McCain wants to be remembered for his military heroism, his more than 30 years in the Senate, his maverick sensibility, even his defeat at the hands of Barack Obama — anything but his tenuous association with Trump.

Trump being at McCain’s funeral would be a little like playing the Benny Hill theme over the closing credits of Saving Private Ryan. McCain deserves to be honored, not sullied by the presence of Bone Spurious the Yellow.

Shut your trap, and let Sen. McCain have his day.

John McCain served our nation honorably. When he said waterboarding is torture I believed him. I don’t think many would have survived what he went through at the Hanoi Hilton & he returned wanting to continue to serve America. He’s a man of character & decency. The impostor president is a draft dodging coward. He’s a con man, grifter, & pathological liar. He has no sense of decency & the morals of a whore dog. He’s an embarrassment to the nation & he’s what you do not want your little boys to grow up to be. I do not understand… Read more »

Hatch can make up for the so called ridiculous slight by having Drumph be mourner #1 at his own funeral.

Damn, Orrin, after all these years you don’t know when to shut up? A funeral for a man honored by most Americans, should take 2nd place to an arrogant and ignorant doofus in the White House?

As a side note, I always thought Palin was foisted on McCain by the GOP.. he never seemed that comfortable when sharing the podium with her.
I bear the man no malice either way.
