  • Obama Fires Subliminals At Trump In His Eulogy For John McCain

John McCain say his daughter Meghan McCain's pointed criticism of President Donald Trump in her speech at the Arizona Republican's memorial service on Saturday reflected the character of her late father. "Kyl yet. What I have gotten is a commitment to serve Arizona through at least this session of Congress, and it's my hope that he serves longer", Ducey said. "I am deeply grateful to senator Kyl for agreeing to succeed his friend and colleague of so many years". "And I think this [younger] generation cares about that".

IF Ducey loses and Kyl doesn't want to continue, Ducey will have to appoint a replacement before his term ends. Kyl said he had traveled with McCain around the world over the years.

"He was just a tremendous man with a great heart and the (funeral) service was very fitting for the service that he provided for his nation", said Sajjan.

"Now, Senator Kyl can cast a vote for Kavanaugh's confirmation", Ducey said.

John McCain died of cancer on August 25. He's been a lawyer in Washington since his retirement, and in recent months has been shepherding Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh through his nomination to the Supreme Court.

And some people showed support for the president's statement, writing that he is more popular all the time. "We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness, the real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly, nor the opportunistic appropriation of those who live lives of comfort and privilege while he suffered and served".

Without naming Trump, McCain's daughter, Bush and Obama all rebuked Trump, who feuded with the late senator and mocked his military service, which included 5-1/2 years as a prisoner during the Vietnam War.

Filling McCain's seat marks a turning point in Arizona political history.

Ducey said he opted to "pick the best possible person, regardless of politics". He said during those trips he realized that McCain had better instincts on when to assert United States power than anyone else he knew.

"When others were looking into Vladimir Putin's eyes, with an eye of understanding him and reaching accommodation with him, John, of course, said: I looked into his eyes and saw KGB", Kyl said.

Kyl said that he "will do my best to ensure that Arizonans continue to be well-represented in the Senate". "He can work across party lines and get results".
