Report: Hatch calls McCain request that Trump not attend his funeral 'ridiculous'

McCain, who was diagnosed with brain cancer previous year, has had a checkered history with the President, who famously said, "He is not a war hero".

"I think John should have his own wishes fulfilled with regard to who attends the funeral", Hatch told CNN, but "I think it's ridiculous" not to have the president in attendance.

I'd like everybody to take a collective breath and chill out on my dad for a second, especially Orrin Hatch.

Hatch apologized after hearing Meghan McCain's televised comments.

Donald Trump seems to be taking the high road when it comes to this very sick and morbid headline news, he's completely ignored McCain's request.

Struck by the unusualness of this statement, some on Twitter suggested it would probably make little to no difference if Trump attended the funeral, as long as McCain attended himself, insisting that death couldn't be used as an excuse to sanctify McCain.

"Well, he's the president of the United States and he's a very good man".

Meghan is asking people to have "respect" for her family.

Uber says its fleet of flying taxis is just around the corner
The vehicles will feature one door on one side of the aircraft to make ground operations easier, according to Wired . An Uber statement stressed safety, comfort, convenience, and efficiency in the eCRM design and operational system.

He also reportedly sent McCain a letter of apology.

"He's not a war hero". He was a war hero because he was captured.

Co-host and unabashed liberal Joy Behar noted that Hatch "used to be mentally stable", but now it seems "he says insane stuff".

The pair have a less-than-friendly relationship after Trump's sarcastic remarks about McCain's Vietnam past and the dispute over Obamacare.

The 81-year-old Arizona Senator was diagnosed glioblastoma, the same rare and aggressive brain cancer that killed Democratic Sen. "I hope he can".

McCain also blasted the U.S. president in his upcoming memoir titled "The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and other Appreciations", which McCain refers to as his last book.
