John McCain’s daughter and two former presidents eulogized the late senator at his memorial service Sept. 1 in calls for a return to civility that seemed to rebuke President Donald Trump’s divisive politics.

The nearly three-hour service at the Washington National Cathedral appeared to be a remarkable show of defiance against a sitting president. McCain had openly defied Trump as the antithesis of the American spirit of service to something greater than any individual. He had asked that Trump not be invited. McCain died Aug. 25 from brain cancer at age 81.

Standing near McCain’s flag-draped casket, Meghan McCain delivered a broadside against the president without mentioning his name.

“We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness — the real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice (my father) gave so willingly,” she said, choking back tears.

Trump has dismissed the idea that McCain, a prisoner of war in Vietnam, was a hero. (AP)
