Senator John McCain and President Donald Trump had an adversarial relationship, and that doesn’t change with the Senator’s passing this weekend at the age of 81. 

CNN has reported that McCain chose Barack Obama and George W. Bush to eulogize him and didn’t want President Trump to attend his funeral.

Meanwhile, The Washington Post reported that President Trump decided against issuing a statement praising McCain’s Senate career and military service as a Vietnam prisoner of war, opting instead to issue a tweet offering sympathies to the Senator’s family.

WIBC host Tony Katz told listeners that the manufactured outrage at President Trump’s failure to praise McCain in death is ridiculous.

“It’s very obvious that President Trump hated John McCain and it’s very obvious that John McCain hated President Trump, and that’s fine. There is nothing wrong with that. It’s not like Trump wrote ‘good and I’d like to spit on his grave,’ he offered sympathies to the family of the Senator. That’s a fine thing to say.”
