Trump complains about John McCain funeral
"I gave him the kind of funeral that he wanted, which as president I had to approve," he told workers at the factory.

"I don't care about this, I didn't get a thank you. That's OK."

Mr Trump approved the military flight of McCain's remains from Arizona to Washington, but it was Congress that accorded the late senator the honour of lying in state.

The US president said McCain "didn't get the job done for our great vets and the VA" by refusing to repeal Obamacare and attacked him for "a war in the Middle East", in reference to the senator's support for the Iraq War.

"Not my kind of guy," the president said. "But some people like him and I think that's great."

Analysis | Lindsey Graham’s remarkably tepid defense of John McCain after Trump’s attacks
It would be one thing to stand up for McCain’s actual conduct or even to rebut specific allegations without mentioning Trump, but Graham does none of that here. It’s about as vanilla a defense as you could imagine. It’s the kind of thing you would expect from basically any senator who is forced into commenting on Trump’s controversies.

And to be clear, this isn’t just inside-baseball politics. This is the kind of thing that could affect McCain’s legacy inside the party whose nomination he won in 2008. Trump is accusing Graham’s friend of truly awful things: betrayal of the party and even a conspiracy to hijack an election. Graham says nothing about McCain’s “service will ever be changed or diminished,” but that’s what’s happening here.

Graham doesn’t seem willing to go there and risk a rift with Trump, given his own political considerations. But Trump is very much forcing him to choose between those two things. And the more Trump continues to attack a recently deceased war hero, the more difficult it would seem for Graham to continue playing this game. What happens when Trump accuses McCain of something even worse than conspiring with Democrats against him? Graham needs to ask how much he’s willing to turn a blind eye to.
