John McCain’s return to the Senate in recent months after multiple treatments has proven to be a failed strategy to arrest an aggressive form of brain cancer.
And now he’s officially begun to prepare for the inevitable end.
Last week McCain revealed in his memoir that this will be his final term in the Senate and that he’s finally ‘free’ to be who he really is.
And among his preparations for the end are details of his funeral which were leaked by the NY Times.
Those details include an elaborate ceremony with VP Mike Pence in attendance but a stark disinvitation for President Trump.
It typifies the new reality of the Grand Old Party in which the ‘big tent’ has morphed into a split the size of the Grand Canyon.

Arizona Senator John McCain’s funeral plans reportedly include Vice President Mike Pence, but not President Trump, according to the New York Times.
The Times on Saturday reported on the “memories and regrets” the senator shared with friends who have come to visit his Arizona ranch. The article included details about funeral plans for the ailing senator, who is suffering from an aggressive form of brain cancer.
“His intimates have informed the White House that their current plan for his funeral is for Vice President Mike Pence to attend the service to be held in Washington’s National Cathedral but not President Trump, with whom Mr. McCain has had a rocky relationship,” according to the Times.
McCain’s “rocky relationship” with Trump famously began early in the 2016 GOP primary, when then candidate Trump said McCain was “not a war hero” in response to a disparaging remark the senator made about Trump’s supporters.
