You hear me now we've got you go ahead we're sorry about that This is a kind of, pomp and circumstances ceremony you typically see for a head of state but this John McCain served the United States for about sixty years his family says both in uniform and then in congress where he was. There for decades representing the people of Zona and really the fact that he has to Ben who defeated, him and both. Of his bids, for the presidency Barack Obama before that George W Bush as the two main speakers honoring him at his funeral says a lot about the kind of symbolism and thought put into this process Senator, McCain plans this ceremony himself and this. Is said, to be a real attempts to emphasize that bipartisanship and putting country above party. Is something that the United States has, been, capable of and should be capable? Of right now even. In this incredibly contentious partisan? Environment of course. The elephant. In the room here Here is the one who sits in the Oval Office President Trump and you can't help but notice that the way this thing was set up, and Mr. Trump's reaction since the word. Of Mr., of Senator McCain's death last weekend That's right the two men didn't disagree just on policy this very personal in terms of the attack that President Trump is a candidate, made on Senator McCain, and of course you never quite forgave the fact. That Senator McCain gave the thumbs down the decisive vote in defeating President Trump's attempt to repeal ObamaCare and, so this this is. Something that was quite bitter but for Senator McCain he really didn't parse words in that last book he wrote. Culture of restless wave of large part of that is. Dedicated to what she wants, to refute which is this tribalism this. Native is this anti immigrant sentiment that he says is just fundamentally un-american and its tone in its tenor and that is something that he has characterized the president and so. For Senator McCain this is not just personal for him it was a really at the federal to the to the idea of the US So it is pretty remarkable that you have a Republican is revered is Senator, John McCain so at. Odds with a Republican president the head of that party it encapsulates for many the kind of divide that you. See within the conservative movement right now Margaret I'm an.
