President Donald Trump made no mention whatsoever of fellow Republican John McCain during an Indiana rally on Thursday night.
McCain’s family had a funeral for him in Arizona today, which was attended by former Vice President Joe Biden, before his casket was flown to Washington D.C.
Trump had repeatedly insulted McCain, most famously deriding his service to our country by saying that he preferred people who were not captured. He had also ordered the White House flags be returned to full-staff soon after McCain’s death.
Trump is not invited to McCain’s funeral and has reportedly raged about the warm coverage McCain has received.
Trump spoke before tonight’s Indiana crowd for 75 minutes.
The president spoke for over 75 minutes tonight in a classic red-meat rally in Indiana. He praised veterans as the “greatest” and hailed “Space Force” and the ideals of American freedom. No mention of John McCain.
His crowd was wild and enthusiastic the whole time.
