Emotional Joe Biden remembers John Mc Cain as 'a brother' at memorial service

Meghan McCain is side-eyeing Mike Pence as Pence uses the occasion of John McCain's remembrance service at the U.S. Capitol to stan for Trump.

Besides Pence, counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway was also in attendance at Friday's ceremony.

McCain spoke out several times against Trump, including after the president's summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, at which Trump appeared to side with Putin instead of US intelligence officials on the issue of election interference.

Remarks and wreath laying provided by Vice President Mike Pence, among others. "The president asked me to be here on behalf of a grateful nation to pay a debt of honor and respect to a man who served our country throughout his life, in uniform and in public office", said Pence.

Over the years, Trump, who did not serve in the military, has demeaned McCain's status as a former prisoner of war, implied he gave up information to his captors and mocked injuries he sustained as a prisoner.

"We celebrate six decades of devotion to the American idea and the cause of human freedom", McConnell said.

Wherever there are lovely women, there’ll be plenty rape cases -President Duterte
This remark outraged the women across the country. "Women are raped because of misogynists like Duterte", it said. The President said that women rarely agree to any sexual advances "on the first try".

"Generations of Americans will continue to marvel at the man who lies before us", McConnell said.

"However you choose to do your part, I hope you choose to do it the way he did", Ryan said. "And we gather here remembering a man who knew how he wanted to be remembered". "Because all of this, all of this, it's worth fighting for". "No one was stronger at the broken places than John McCain".

"In my years in Congress and as vice president, we didn't always agree either, and he nearly always noticed", Pence said, The New York Times reported.

In the past, Trump attacked McCain's record of service, saying the Vietnam veteran was "not a war hero" because he was captured, later declined to apologize for his comment, and blasted McCain's deciding vote on health care when the senator was receiving treatment for brain cancer.

Before his death, McCain requested Trump not attend his funeral.
