A number of prominent speakers at Sen. John McCain’s funeral took subtle and direct jabs at President Trump, who was not present at the service because McCain did not want him to be invited.
Many have praised the late senator’s willingness to reach across the aisle in friendship if not always in political agreement — and in one moment during McCain’s memorial service on Saturday, former President George W. Bush delivered on that sentiment.

It makes me ill that the Bushes are so buddy-buddy with the Clintons and Obamas. Doesn’t say much for their character.
Trump makes one remark about McCain and he shouldn’t be president anymore and he gets an endless bashing.
Obama never stopped his bashing of Bush and today they are a buddy.
It makes no sense and frankly, it is disgusting.
Political bashing has gotten out of hand. You can’t even attend a funeral without it happening. Shame on all of you who participated in it.
The irony is even bigger when you hear Bush and his remarks on John McCain!
He said whatever rivalry he had with Sen. John McCain “melted away” as they forged a friendship.
“Back in the day, he could frustrate me. And I know he’d say the same thing about me. But he also made me better,” Bush said at a memorial service at Washington National Cathedral.
