So it took the mighty power of the American Legion, but Trump finally released a semi-proper notice and returned the flag to half-mast, after half-assedly tweeting his condolences from the golf course.

I may not have always agreed with McCain, but at several points he was a Republican I considered voting for, and anyone who doubted or maligned his service to his country is an asshat.

I think when you are a POTUS who gets banned from not one but two funerals of GOP legends (i.e. Sen. McCain and Barbara Bush) in a single year you've definitely reached the "peak asshole" level in life.

Well, I can't argue he wasn't a horrible warmonger, particularly in regards to Iran, but I'm not sure that'd crack my top three of horrible things he did.

Purgatory is NOT Hell.
http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/12575a.htm
Purgatory (Lat., "purgare", to make clean, to purify) in accordance with Catholic teaching is a place or condition of temporal punishment for those who, departing this life in God's grace, are, not entirely free from venial faults, or have not fully paid the satisfaction due to their transgressions.

All politics aside, the man was mourned with his 106 year old mother at his coffin. I'd say that is something you don't see or read about very often.
