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

Axelrod Leaving Iran deal 'unmitigated disaster'

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.

While leaving a Met Gala after party, a fan was reportedly attacked by Cardi B's security team, according to TMZ . Stormi's mom and dad also displayed their love for each other on the red carpet at fashion's biggest night out.

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.
