Barack Obama To Deliver Sen. John McCain’s Eulogy

Sen. John McCain requested for former presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush to deliver eulogies at his funeral. McCain passed away Saturday following a bout with a very aggressive form of brain cancer. Both Mr. Obama and Mr. Bush will deliver their remarks during a service at the National Cathedral.

Former Vice President Joe Biden will speak at a separate service honoring the senator in Arizona.

The Associated Press is reporting McCain made it very clear that he did not want Donald Trump to attend or participate in his funeral service. Vice President Pence is likely to attend, an official told AP.

Gov. Doug Ducey, tweeted McCain will lie in state at the Arizona Capitol on Wednesday, his birthday, before his body will be brought to Washington to lie in state at the U.S. Capitol.

The senator asked that he be buried at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, near the grave of a long time friend, McCain said in an interview with “60 Minutes” Lesley Stahl.

“I want, when I leave, that the ceremony is at the Naval Academy. And we just have a couple of people that stand up and say, ‘This guy, he served his country,'” McCain said.
