I didn't get a thank you for McCain funeral

Senate Veterans Affairs Chairman Johnny Isakson is leading Republicans speaking out again against President Donald Trump's bashing of the late Sen.

Meghan McCain unloaded on President Donald Trump on Wednesday, calling his latest broadside against her late father, Senator John McCain, a "bizarre new low". "Nothing is more important than the integrity of the country and those who fought and risked their lives for all of us".

"Barely six months after McCain's death, Trump started the latest exchange between himself and the McCain clan on Sunday in a blast of Tweets, including one that attacked "'last in his class' (Annapolis) John McCain".

During an official White House event at an OH tank factory on Wednesday afternoon, Trump spent several minutes criticizing McCain, who passed away last August from brain cancer.

McCain's daughter Meghan McCain called Trump's life "pathetic".

"I think if I had told my dad, seven months after you're dead, you're going to be dominating the news and all over Twitter, he would think it was hilarious that our president was so jealous of him that he was dominating the news cycle in death as well", she continued.

President Donald Trump has arrived in OH to tour an Army tank plant and raise money for his re-election campaign.

Lauren Bullock , 17, Morgan Barnard , 17, and 16-year-old Connor Currie were all killed in the crush. Relatives, friends and teachers have paid tribute to the three who died.

"When the president is saying that he doesn't respect John McCain and he's never going to respect John McCain and all these kids are out there listening to the president of the United States talk that way about the most decorated senator in history, who is dead, it just sets the worst tone possible", said Isakson, who added that he meant to deliver a lengthier public rebuke of a president the Georgia conservative has largely supported.

McCain, a Navy pilot, was held as a prisoner of war and tortured for more than five years.

"We can't talk about our veterans in any way but to thank them for the service they render for the job that they do", Isakson went on to say.

And others just criticized the president for even going there. Instead, they praised McCain. It was a blessing to serve alongside a rare patriot and genuine American hero in the Senate. "We owe him nothing less than the respect that he earned, and that is what I intend to give John in return for what he gave me". "Everybody wants it", he said, adding he'd received word that the United Auto Workers union - which also represents the workers at the Lima tank plant - would help in discussions.

As the crowd of tank machinists, welders and other workers grew quiet, Trump accused McCain of going behind his back to alert the Federal Bureau of Investigation of an unverified dossier containing information about Trump's purported ties to Russian Federation.

The aide pointed to McCain's speech on the Senate floor on July 25, 2017, when the senator railed against the process in the Republican-led chamber that produced the final version of the GOP "repeal and replace" measure. "Not only from the republicans, but also from the White House".

"I gave him the kind of funeral he wanted which as president I had to approve".
