The Washington National Cathedral disputed President Trump’s claim that he had to “approve” the funeral of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).

“Washington National Cathedral was honored to host the funeral service for Senator John McCain. All funerals and memorial services at the Cathedral are organized by the family of the deceased; only a state funeral for a former president involves consultation with government officials,” a cathedral spokesperson said in a statement to The Hill on Thursday.

The article goes on to state the following:

“No funeral at the Cathedral requires the approval of the president or any other government official,” he added.

President Trump said on Wednesday in Ohio that he gave McCain “the kind of funeral that he wanted.”

      • The president authorized the transportation. Did he not also lay in the rotunda? Yes, the Cathedral and family arranged the church service. Who provided the traffic and security? The resident was not part of the funeral nor was he invited

  1. I suspect the National Cathedral was only a small part of the funeral which they claim didn’t require Presidential approval. It takes only a little COMMON SENSE to know that there were many other facets of the service that DID require the President’s approval. WHY would the president publicly lie about something like this when he knows that the liberal monkey press is always waiting to pounce???? Liberal press, PLEASE…report on something that somebody REALLY cares about.

  2. The hypocrites at the National Cathedral who hide behind the mantle of God/religion and the McCain ingrates symbolize all that is wrong with organized religion and corrupted politicians. Mrs. McCain may be heir to a beer distribution fortune; however, her husband and entire family lived their adult lives off the taxpayers up to, and including, a funeral that lasted days and cost the citizens a fortune.
