‘Hero’ McCain? Sarah Palin, his 2008 running mate, BARRED from funeral

(National SentinelPetulant: For days now, the #NeverTrump media and commentariat has roasted POTUS Donald Trump for his measured response to the late Sen. John McCain’s death, which came earlier this week after the long-serving senior RINO from Arizona passed away from brain cancer.

POTUS Trump’s tweeted condolences were ‘insufficient’ and ‘petty.’ His delay in ordering U.S. flags be flown at half-staff…’insufficient’ and ‘petulant.’

Turns out the ‘hero’ himself had a massive petulant streak as well.

After earlier reports claimed that the Keating Five scandal and Vietnam War vet refused to allow POTUS Trump to attend his funeral, now comes a report claiming that he didn’t want his 2008 vice presidential running mate, Sarah Palin, there either.

As Breitbart News reports:

Breitbart News has independently confirmed an earlier report in People magazine, which reported that Palin was not sent an invitation, and was told through intermediaries to stay away from the ceremony.

McCain fundraiser Carla Eudy confirmed to People that Palin had not been invited — possibly, People speculated, at the behest of the McCain family.




The news comes on the tenth anniversary of the date in 2008 when Palin was announced as McCain’s pick for Vice President.

Palin now joins President Donald Trump on the list of those barred from the funeral.

Unlike the president, Palin never publicly fought with her former running mate and in fact, never publicly criticized him, either.

Just this week she sent this caring message despite the fact that McCain has said he should have picked “independent” former Democratic Sen. Joe Lieberman to run against then-Sen. Barack Obama:

Today we lost an American original. Sen. John McCain was a maverick and a fighter, never afraid to stand for his beliefs. John never took the easy path in life — and through sacrifice and suffering he inspired others to serve something greater than self. John McCain was my friend. I will remember the good times. My family and I send prayers for Cindy and the McCain family.

Classy.

Let’s not pretend that Sen. McCain was some iconic, ‘above it all’ figure in Washington for the nearly six terms in which he served.

In addition to the Keating Five savings and loan scandal in the 1980s, McCain had developed a reputation for crapping on his own party when he thought it would be personally beneficial to him and get him some friendly ‘mainstream media’ face time (which was always fleeting; the media savaged him during the 2008 election).

After they lost to Obama, Palin stuck to her roots and became an advocate for the small-government conservative Tea Party movement, while McCain went back to being an establishment RINO.

When two leaders of the movement — Senate colleagues Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky — were elected, McCain referred to them as “wacko birds.”

People reached out to Palin for a comment for their story, but she refused. Instead, the Palin family released this statement: “[O]ut of respect for Sen. McCain and his family we have nothing to add at this point. The Palin family will always cherish their friendship with the McCains and hold those memories dear.”

Classy and poised versus bitter and petty to the very end.

McCain will be laid to rest at Annapolis after lying in state for several days in Washington, D.C.

10 Comments on ‘Hero’ McCain? Sarah Palin, his 2008 running mate, BARRED from funeral

  1. McCain was extremely jealous of how Palin quickly stole the limelight from him when he chose her to be his running mate. She maintained that growing popularity after McCain lost. Apparently, he never got over it.

  2. “Lying in State”….that says it all about McCain..

  3. Sarah Palin on the ticket was the only reason we voted for mccain in 2008. He wouldn’t have won with Joe Lieberman or any other person on his ticket, but he refused to acknowledge that it was his own shortcomings which lost the election to the most radical leftist ever to hold the presidency.

    The McStain family is going back to being a collection of rich Arizonans without any national influence, Megan McStains’ gig on The View notwithstanding. That probably sticks in the craw of the staff, too. I do note how Johnny boy refused to resign and allow the Governor to appoint a replacement, and thus continue to stick it to the president. The country absolutely will not miss Senator Me Me Me Mcstains.

    Let me think of something nice to say about him…he’s DEAD. There. I said it.

  6. A rotten human being to the last.

  7. He was a traitorous P.O.S. Rhino that hurt this Country more then ever helped it. Glad he’s gone.

  8. The Nation has finally rid itself of a nasty irritant….the two-timing War Monger is DEAD. God willing he will be buried and quickly forgotten.

  9. DON’T YOU DARE RENAME THE SENATOR’S MAIN BUILDING AFTER THIS SORRY EXCUSE OF A MAN. I LIVED IN ARIZONA FOR 53 YEARS, AND HAD TO PUT UP WITH HIS SH*tY SELF-SERVING, RINO POLITICS FOR ALL 6 OF HIS TERMS. I JUST COULDN’T UNDERSTAND HOW “DUMB” ARIZONIANS”
    WERE TO KEEP VOTING HIM INTO YET ANOTHER TERM. HE BACKSTABBED ARIZONAIANS AND THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA OVER AND OVER AND CERTAINLY DOESN’T DESERVE ALL THIS HYPE BOTH PARTIES ARE GIVING HIM. PEOPLE JUST CAN’T SEEM TO COME TO GRIPS THAT HIS INTERNMENT DEFINITELY AFFECTED HIS BRAIN AND RATIONAL THINKING. SO THEY FEEL SORRY FOR HIM. NOT ME! MAY HE REST IN PEACE WITH THE CREATOR WHERE HE WILL FINALLY HAVE TO COME TO TERMS WITH HIS DEVIOUS, SELF SERVING NATURE.
