Two ex-presidents from opposing parties united Saturday in homage to late senator and American patriot John McCain, in a momentous farewell ceremony that also rebuked the politics of toxicity and division trafficked by Donald Trump.

It was first reported last July that the six-term Republican senator from Arizona was battling glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer. "In a way, it's the last great gift that John McCain gave America".
It's no secret that there is little love lost between the McCains and PresidentDonald Trump.
Bush praised McCain for standing up for the working-class Americans over the interests of Washington, D.C.
