Barack Obama, Senator John McCain’s politcal opponent in the 2008 presidential race, was asked to speak at McCain’s funeral today. McCain’s funeral, an invitation only event, included speeches by former President George W. Bush, as well as his former politicalrival, Barack Obama, who McCain criticized in 2008, for being treated like a celebrity by the media, comparing him to celebrities like Paris Hilton, who were constantly dogged by the media, yet had no real accomplishments that could explain their appeal. McCain also blasted the media for hiding Barack Obama background from the American people, accusing Obama of having no actual political record to run on.
While everyone in the media is singing Kumbaya, over Barack Obama’s invitation to speak at McCain’s funeral, while pretending they always loved Republican Senator, John McCain, ABC Talk show host Mark Simone nailed the real truth about how the media treated Senator John McCain with this tweet:
The politicians speaking at the funeral and memorial and the TV commentators are the exact same people who 10 years ago constantly called McCain a racist, a liar, an adulterer, erratic, dumb, unfit for office when he ran against Obama. None of them have apologized.

Here’s one of McCain’s brutal ads, exposing Barack Obama as a major player in the fraudulent activist group, ACORN:
The former war hero, turned Senator, really touched a nerve, however, when he suggested that Barack Obama was responsible for the creation of ISIS.
Only two years ago, on June 16, 2016, the Washington Post reported that Senator John McCain blamed President Obama for the Pulse Nightclub Massacre in Orlando, by radical Muslim, Omar Mateen, that left 49 dead.
McCain claimed that Barack Obama was “directly responsible” for the terror attack in Orlando due to his failure to combat the rise of the Islamic State terror group.
McCain made his remarks in a Senate hallway to a small group of reporters, responding to a question about the gun-control debate that has flared on Capitol Hill since the Sunday-morning shooting that left 49 clubgoers and the gunman dead.
When pressed by a reporter on the claim that Obama was “directly” responsible, McCain reiterated his point — that Obama should not have withdrawn combat troops from Iraq: “He pulled everybody out of Iraq, and I predicted at the time that ISIS would go unchecked, and there would be attacks on the United States of America,” he said. “It’s a matter of record, so he is directly responsible.”
McCain later claimed that he “misspoke”…
McCain also accused Barack Obama of putting his own political ambitions before our US troops in a campaign ad that was criticized by Democrats.
According to CBS News, in July 2008, then-presidential candidate John McCain released a new television advertisement in which the announcer says that on his trip, Obama “made time to go to the gym, but cancelled a visit with wounded troops. Seems the Pentagon wouldn’t allow him to bring cameras.”
“John McCain is always there for our troops,” adds the announcer, before concluding with the campaign’s new slogan: “McCain, country first.”
We’d love to share the TV ad, but it’s been completely scrubbed from the internet.
The slogan’s inverse implication for his opponent was made clear earlier in the week, when McCain accused Obama of placing the his political ambitions before the national interest.
“It seems to me that Obama would rather lose a war in order to win a political campaign,” McCain said Tuesday in New Hampshire, in a line he’s been using regularly since.
While the botched troop visit might have been the stuff of an attack ad in any case, since it was the only significant slip-up in an otherwise well-staged trip, McCain’s new ad dovetailed with the latest viral email aimed at Obama, a widely-circulated-though later recanted-missive from a Utah National Guard officer stationed in Afghanistan, Joseph Porter, who wrote that Obama “blew…off” and “shunned” soldiers during his visit there.
“He was just here to make a showing for the Americans back home,” Porter wrote, though press reports contradicted some of the details provided in his email. “It was almost that he was scared to be around those that provide the freedom for him and our great country.”
Obama responded with high-minded disappointment to McCain’s new round of attacks, and his traveling companions in the Middle East, Senators Chuck Hagel and Jack Reed, condemned them.
“I think John is treading on some very thin ground here when he impugns motives and when we start to get into, ‘you’re less patriotic than me. I’m more patriotic,”” said Hagel, a Republicanand Vietnam veteran who’s yet to endorse a presidential candidate and is rumored to be considering a cross-party endorsement.
McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign advisor responded to an attack by MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarbourough over McCain’s attack of Barack Obama during an interview on their “Morning Joe” show:
McCain also tied Barack Obama to domestic terrorist Bill Ayers in this campaign ad:
It’s interesting that in his dying days, John McCain decied to snub our current President, Donald Trump, whose only crime is that he won’t give up his fight to make America great again for all Americans, while somehow, he found it in his heart to embrace Barack Obama, the same man he accused of being responsible for the creationg of one of the most vile and dangerous terror groups to ever walk this earth.
