Skip to comments.Vanity: McCain has few public viewers when compared to Ronald Reagan.
Posted on 08/30/2018 6:38:04 AM PDT by JLAGRAYFOX
The great state of Arizona, in the latest census reading has just over 7,000,000 people. According to ABC, Arizona Central & Arizona State Police, the estimates for the public persons viewing the John McCain casket range from 1,000, 1,500 to 7500 people. "SAD"
Ronald Reagan in his funeral wake had thousands upon thousands of Californians, etc. viewing his remains and, also as his funeral motorcade drove to his final resting place, hundreds of thousands of California citizens stopped their cars, trucks, etc., on roads, streets, highways freeways and ran to the center dividers to pay homage to the beloved Reagan. Let us see how the John McCain motorcade is received by the citizens in Phoenix, Arizona this morning.
Methinks John McCain was not loved by rank and file Americans, as the biased media has framed him....We shall see!!!
Beloved War Hero and
Obama Care cheerleader,
Regan was a president.
McCain was a Mondale.
I almost stepped in some McCain yesterday.
McCain was neither loved or respected. Be happy with the 1500 who wasted their time viewing.
McCain wasn't a Veep....I knew Vice President Mon-Dull, and McNoName was no Mon-Dull, sir......he was much worse......
People instinctively understood that even more than 15 years after Reagan left the Oval Office and even with a lightweight currently in that office that Reagan was something special, someone who pulled America away from the edge of a cliff.
John McCain was not fit to shine his shoes.
Looks like the rent-a-mobs will be needed this weekend in DC, not to protest, but be paid to be mourners for McLames funeral!
This is a funeral show. Nobody really liked him. Some of the swamp on the RINO and DEM side did. But the people did not overwhelmingly vote for him. The press hyped him. And his wife gave him all the money he needed. The weapons vendors gave him trips to everywhere. Countries hosted him so that they could buy US weapons. But he was not popular. This whole funeral is an anti-Trump show. I don’t know anyone who thinks McCain is good let alone great.
I think someone should ask the family members of those people killed on that aircraft carrier when he accidentally dropped a bomb on the deck, if they want to be at his funeral. Or if he went to their loved ones funeral.
Contrast the crowds that showed up to View McCain with those that came to view President Richard Nixon after he died. The crowds that came to view Nixon lined up for several miles
I wouldn't insult Fritz. Mondale had a sense of humor, proclaiming himself as the only major party candidate to lose elections in all 50 states after that Wellstone stand-in loss. He lost the other 49 against Reagan and only needed Minnestota to complete the 50.
In fact, I met him when he was ambassador to Japan under Clinton and actually found him to be both cordial and charming.
Cordial, charming and sense of humor would never be words to describe McCain.
And even old Fritz didn’t get this type of send-off.
If they’d had the good sense to invite Sarah, they’d have many thousands. And if Trump attended, they’d have to rent a stadium.
Most of the public viewers are there to poke him with a pin to confirm he is truly dead!
I was around McCain in AZ and in Houston. They guy was odd, he seemed pissed off all the time. He didnt have the ability to consider any opinions but his own. If he thought the sky was red that was that. Around voters in town hall type meetings he would be a total jerk to anyone that questioned him in ways he didnt like. He basically didnt like the little people.
At the end of the day he had a great life, he did whatever he wanted whenever he wanted and never really worked a real day in his adult life.
I thought he was an asshole.

Oh....there will be tons of bells and whistles from the Washington elite establishment...but, the public reaction and turnout will be weak.
Of course, the The RINOs and Democrats will order all their staff to view the coffin in the Capitol Rotunda, but, the public response will be the same as his remains received in Arizona...little interest at best. And, that public turnout is the real measure and greatness of the man, which John McCain was not!!!
Sort of like the way Kris Kardashian managed the "womyn who was once Bruce Jenner" and made a marketable product out of
her / him it.
