        BLOTUS has finally caved to the almost universal outrage over his behaviour and has ordered the WH flag to be lowered again:

        As a mark of respect for the memory and longstanding service of Senator John Sidney McCain III, I hereby order, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at the White House and upon all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its Territories and possessions until sunset, on the day of interment. I also direct that the flag shall be flown at half‑staff for the same period at all United States embassies, legations, consular offices, and other facilities abroad, including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations.

        Pouty Pres has finally done the bare minimum. But he deserves no credit, as his behaviour over McCain’s death has only reinforced the negative perception that the majority of the world holds of him.

    Trump has no thoughts

      It’s not exactly a secret they diod not like each other at all.
      It would be hypocritical for Trump to now issue gushing proclamations on the wonderousness of JM.
      His lack of issuing a statement and the skimping on WH protocal doesn’t speak well, but keeping his silence when asked about McCain, given his antipathy for the man is entirely appropriate,

        Yes, like Lange not standing for Muldoon’s valedictory speech. I’m waiting fort the jokes to start about Trumpy not being able to use the oval office phone to ring the president of Mexico. It was hilarious.

          Trump and Muldoon like peas in a pod, with deeply flawed dictatorial personalities both appealing to backward looking segments of society , Rob’s mob and Trump’s evangelical rural white America.

          Whereas, Obama and Lange appealing more to the future, multi racial and outward looking. I think history will look on them more fondly.
