Ducey to Appoint Former Sen. Jon Kyl to McCain's Seat

Memorial Service Held For Sen. John Mc Cain At North Phoenix Baptist Church

To recall the observation of my U.S. veteran friend, will the memorial at the National Cathedral remain a "brief moment of brotherhood among those swimming in the Trump swamp"?

Jon Kyl is a dear friend of mine and John's.

Family and friends, along with the Naval Academy's class of 1958 and its current student body, bade a final farewell in a private service at the academy's chapel before Mr McCain, who died on Aug 25 at age 81, was interred in a cemetery on the academy grounds.

Kyl said that he "will do my best to ensure that Arizonans continue to be well-represented in the Senate". It's all about trust.

Quite a few put their own twist on the president's July 2015 words about the senator's time as a POW in Hanoi during the Vietnam War, "I like people who weren't captured." His work was primarily focused on tax issues affecting the company, but Kyl's firm, Covington & Burling, also lobbied the House and Senate to drum up support for the B-21 bomber, a stealth aircraft Northrop Grumman is building for the Air Force.

The duo mingled with the crowd, which included political figures from both sides of the aisle. Former presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush are set to deliver eulogies for McCain in front of the 2,500 invited guests. Trump, whose rhetoric seemed to have spread to at least some of his staff, also refused to acknowledge McCain when he signed a bill named after him.

Then the seat will be up again for a full six-year term.

"Wherever John passed throughout the world, people immediately knew there was a leader in their midst", Bush said.

"He was willing to give his life for this country", she continued. And we learned from each other.

"John's voice will always come as a whisper over our shoulder - we are better than this, America is better than this", he said. "Or that when all was said and done, we were on the same team".

"He was a great man", claimed the conservative co-host of The View.

Meghan McCain, daughter of the late Arizona Senator John McCain, eulogized her father at his funeral, which was held on Saturday. Trump and McCain were at odds during the 2016 campaign and for much of Trump's presidency. "He was a war hero because he was captured". "No", he said. "And I don't wish I was still there".

For a large cross-section in the US that is cringing at this loss of dignity in the exalted office of the US President, the McCain memorial could well be seen as a defining socio-political event in a national consciousness that has been demeaned and diminished over the last two years.
