No, this is not satire. It’s just another example of the mad ramblings of an addled brain.
At a speech today in Lima, Ohio, Trump told a crowd of workers that McCain never even bothered to thank him for giving him the kind of funeral he wanted. Oh that ingrate!
“I gave him the kind of funeral he wanted, which as president I had to approve… I don’t care about this, I didn’t get ‘thank you’, that’s OK.”
Perhaps the ghost of McCain should pay Trump a visit tonight, and every night for the rest of his natural days, thanking him for the great send off!
For the record, Trump didn’t “approve” anything, as McCain’s funeral was not the responsibility of the president.
In order to lie in state at the Capitol — which McCain did, becoming the 31st person and 13th senator ever to do so, The New York Times reported— congressional approval is required.
“These occasions are either authorized by a congressional resolution or approved by the congressional leadership, when permission is granted by survivors,” the Architect of the Capitol’s website reads.
About the only thing Trump did “approve” was for the use of a military jet to fly McCain’s body from Arizona to Washington D.C.
You were so right, Ted, Trump’s just an unadulterated, “pathological liar.”
