Flags were ordered at half staff/mast on the passing of John McCain, and they were magically raised to full after the weekend. I didn't know what deep seeded hate Trump has for people who disagreed with his policies until now. He really does carry grudges for people, even after they're dead. Such an asshole.
“There was no official proclamation from President Trump (as he has done in the past for other notable figures passing)”
It was obvious to most of us during Trump's campaign that he has nearly no respect for the living, and less respect for the dying or deceased. The man should be removed from office as quickly as possible, either by indictment or impeachment.
The rest of the nation is NOT with him on McCain's death, respect and dignity will prevail throughout the country though. I plan on watching the memorial services for him if televised. I am hoping that he'll be brought to and taken from the rotunda by horse drawn caisson, and from a funeral hearse to Annapolis and into another horse drawn caisson to his final resting place, and is shown the respect he deserves.

Anybody that is that exclusive in his choice of people is a racist. He could just as easily say he likes people who are born white. +
