Sarah Huckabee Sanders Offers Update on Trump Attending McCain's Funeral

Sarah Huckabee Sanders Trump Attending McCain’s Funeral? … Uh, We’ll Let You Know

Sarah Huckabee Sanders says it’s unclear if Donald Trump will attend Senator John McCain‘s funeral — but here’s what we’re hearing … don’t hold your breath.

We got the Press Sec. leaving Reagan National Sunday and asked for some thoughts on the late Arizona senator, who died Saturday from brain cancer. SHB had kind words for McCain, who she calls a great loss for the country, but wouldn’t bite on the funeral question. 


Specifically … will DT be in attendance? You know, after all that public bashing and feuding between the two … and a very clear disinvite from McCain’s camp while still alive? She says she’ll keep us posted, but it sounds like code for “hell no.” Trump didn’t even go to Barbara Bush’s funeral, so he’ll likely pass on McCain. Besides … he’d be persona non grata anyway.

Meanwhile, ex-Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama are rumored to be offering eulogies at McCain’s funeral in D.C. He will reportedly lie in state at two different locations — the Capitol Rotunda and the Arizona Capitol — ahead of his funeral in Washington’s National Cathedral before being buried at the U.S. Naval Academy in Maryland.

Pence is also expected to attend … and, apparently, Sarah herself will show face.
