    .. Trump turns McCain's death into another political firestorm about Trump ..


    It's the standard Washington protocol ' a member of Congress dies, and the flags over official buildings are flown at half-staff. That's what happened when John McCain died Saturday.

    But first thing Monday morning, the flag over the White House was back at full-staff, and a barrage of bitter criticism soon followed, with detractors including the American Legion interpreting the fleeting tribute as a sign of President Trump's pettiness. Trump has always been envious of McCain's military reputation and gets annoyed if a staff member attempts to inform him about America's military complex. Trump prefers to be seen as commander-in-chief and all knowing.

    He had refused to utter McCain's name earlier this month when signing the defense policy bill named for the senator. He had rejected staff suggestions over the weekend that he issue a statement upon McCain's death. And now he was refusing to follow a tradition of leaving the flag at half-staff until interment.


    By day's end, it had become clear that in his stubborn defiance of protocol, the president had single-handedly turned the death of McCain into yet another political firestorm that was all about Trump.

    John McCains nickname in the Navy was McNasty.. LOL.

    And rightfully so .. because he almost single handedly sank the aircraft carrier USS Forestall by attempting to perform a wet start ..

    This stunt and aftermath caused the death of 134 sailors and seriously injure (blow off arms legs, cause blindness and burns to another 161 sailors) and took the ship off the battle line for extensive repairs.
    .. rest of article is below.
