Farewell memorials begin for John McCain

McConnell honors Mc Cain on Senate floor

Warren Beatty Will Be A Pallbearer At John McCain’s Funeral

Republican Senator John McCain died after suffering from brain cancer, just days before his 82nd birthday. Americans never quit, we never hide from history. Arrangements have been made for McCain to be lying in state in multiple locations, on different dates.

The proposal certainly has its roots in McCain lore: "McCain's office was housed in the Russell building, and the committee he chaired, the Senate Armed Services Committee, often meets in the building as well", TIME Magazine reports.

Their daughter Meghan McCain, co-host of the television talk show "The View", sobbed openly.

Late Senator John McCain's five-day memorial started in his adopted home state of Arizona on Wednesday (local time).

Arizona National Guard members carried the casket into the Arizona State Capitol Museum rotunda, where McCain lay in state. No photography will be permitted. His 82nd birthday would've been today, August 29.

Sen.

He will lie in state Wednesday for a private formal ceremony and a public viewing. Exact hours for when viewing will end have not yet been announced.

Thursday, his body will be taken to a Phoenix church, where former Vice President Joe Biden will deliver a eulogy during a memorial service.

"By the weekend, when virtually all of official Washington - Democrats and Republicans alike - gathers at the National Cathedral for a nationally televised farewell, Mr. Trump is expected to have retreated to Camp David, where White House aides hope he will contain his anger at the attention being lavished on Mr. McCain", they write. In addition, his colleagues, national officials and worldwide leaders will attend.

The main speech in tribute to McCain was to be delivered by Biden, a friend and former six-term Democratic senator from DE who was elected vice president as the running mate of McCain's rival for the White House, Barack Obama, who defeated McCain in the 2008 presidential race.

His coffin will then depart for the airport and be flown to Washington, DC, where it will lie in state in the U.S. Capitol building before a funeral service featuring former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

But, as Ducey tries to walk the line between appeasing the Trump fanatics in his base as well as the moderates who gave McCain six straight terms in office, he reportedly wants the family's approval to make the replacement as respectful and unifying as possible.

Following the Maryland service, Senator McCain will be buried next to one of his closest friends: fellow Naval Academy classmate Adm. This will be private as well.
