Hatch Apologizes to McCain for Suggesting Trump Should Attend His Funeral

Sen. John McCain R-Ariz. blasts the Obama administration's response to the attack on Benghazi Libya in 2012 as Report: Hatch calls McCain request that Trump not attend his funeral 'ridiculous'

McCain announced last summer that he is battling an aggressive form of brain cancer - the same type that killed his friend, Sen.

On Monday, Hatch said he thought it was "ridiculous" that his fellow Senate Republican, who is recovering from cancer treatment in his home state of Arizona, wanted to keep the President from his funeral. "I like people who weren't captured", Trump told Iowa voters in July of 2015.

McCain, through his family and associates, asked that former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush speak at his funeral.

Despite the friction between the two men, Hatch thinks it's silly for McCain to wish Trump wouldn't come to his funeral, according to Politico.

Hatch's spokesperson, Matt Whitlock later issued a clarification to Politico saying the Senator "spoke out of turn" and that "he's been pleased to hear reports that Senator McCain is in good spirits and hopes to see him back in Washington soon". McCain blasting his VP nominee Sarah Palin along with Trump in his upcoming book has just fueled the public storm.

McCain wrote in his forthcoming memoir that this was his last term in office, but he never said he was retiring.

Damascus-Area Air Strike Targeted Missiles Trained on Israel
On April 29, Israel was suspected of more strikes in Hama and Aleppo, reportedly killing at least 18 pro-Iranian fighters. Such strikes have become more frequent recently, amid soaring tensions between regional archenemies Israel and Iran.


"I think that's ridiculous", Hatch said.

Despite winning an unusually tough reelection campaign by promising during the Republican primary to get rid of the mandate of ObamaCare, McCain did the opposite after winning his race.

Congressman Gregory Meeks from the opposing Democratic Party praised McCain for the decision.

Hatch apologized after hearing Meghan McCain's televised comments. He called the process awful, arguing that the only repeal bill he could support was one that had been through the usual bipartisan debate.

On Wednesday's "The View" Meghan McCain took some time to say her dad, Sen.
