White House aides hope Trump can ‘contain his anger’ over attention McCain is getting after dying: report

Published

President Donald Trump is reportedly upset that the late Sen. John McCain is getting so much media attention in the wake of his death on Saturday.

In a lengthy New York Times report about Trump and McCain’s mutual disdain, reporters Michael D. Shear and Katie Rogers reveal that aides fear the president will lash out at McCain, who has been getting wall-to-wall coverage on cable news this week.

“By the weekend, when virtually all of official Washington — Democrats and Republicans alike — gathers at the National Cathedral for a nationally televised farewell, Mr. Trump is expected to have retreated to Camp David, where White House aides hope he will contain his anger at the attention being lavished on Mr. McCain,” they write.

After McCain’s passing on Saturday, Trump refused for two days to issue a statement praising McCain’s life and legacy. Additionally, he ordered White House flags to fly at full staff on Monday, even though it’s custom for flags to fly at half staff after the deaths of notable senators until their funerals.

On Friday, the Indy reported that Conrad James, a community organizer in Raleigh, North Carolina, was raided by police in the dead of night and arrested — just hours after he told the Raleigh City Council he plans to sue on behalf of Black Lives Matter protesters.

"Right now, what we’re doing is forcing demands that need to be met in order to meet the same type of demands that happened at the Geneva Convention,” said James at a city council meeting on Thursday night. “You guys committed an act of war, a war crime. A bunch of journalists out in California also had acts of war placed upon them, and they filed a class-action lawsuit. So this is the first time that we are going to notify you guys of the class-action lawsuit that all the protesters will have at your door tomorrow. Because the city attorney needs to defend the war crimes that were voted upon by the city.”
