After a valiant struggle, Sen. John McCain has succumbed to brain cancer. Most would agree that Sen. McCain is a true American patriot who, whether on the field of battle or in the halls of Congress, consistently placed his comrades and his country above himself and his political party.

In planning his own memorial service, Sen. McCain requested that the two men who had prevented his presidential aspirations serve as eulogists.

Former presidents George W. Bush, a Republican, and Barrack Obama, a Democrat, delivered remarks honoring Sen. McCain in an homage to bipartisanship. President Trump was not invited. Why?

Sen. McCain was everything President Trump is not. Sen. McCain was self-sacrificing, self-deprecating and humble. He was responsible and rational, a pragmatist and a realist. He was courageous and a genuine American hero.

President Trump shares none of these attributes. He is an “emperor with no clothes,” an “empty suit,” who will not release his tax returns.

Ask yourself, which man, McCain or Trump, would you prefer as a role model for your children or grandchildren.

Donald Trump is a a very powerful, dangerous, sick joke. But John McCain will not “go gently into that good night.” Even in death, Sen. McCain will forever speak truth to power.
