NFL Player Speaks at McCain’s Funeral, Palin Not Even Invited

Published

on

The running mate of late Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) failed bid for president in 2008 was not invited to his funeral, while an NFL player for the Arizona Cardinals gave a keynote speech.

“Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald Jr. describes his ‘unlikely’ friendship with Sen. John McCain. ‘I’m black, he was white. He ran for president, I run out of bounds,'” said CNN in a Tweet.

“How does this unlikely pair become friends?” Fitzgerald said. “I’ve asked myself the same question. But you know what the answer is. That’s just who [McCain] is. Over the several years I had the privilege of spending time with Sen. McCain, sometimes is was just a visit to our practices, other times it was him texting and saying ‘you need to pick it up this Sunday.”

“I’m thankful that through these moments, the opportunity that we had to share our lives, and more importantly, our stories,” he continued. “While from very different worlds, we developed a meaningful friendship, and this highlights the very rare and very special qualities of Sen. McCain that I came to admire. He didn’t judge people by the color of their skin, their gender, their backgrounds, their political affiliations, or their bank accounts. He evaluated them on the merits of their character and contents of their hearts.”

By all accounts, Fitzgerald’s speech was well-delivered and eloquent.

In stark contrast, McCain apparently was not pleased with the merits of former running mate Sarah Palin’s character, so much so that she was not even invited to his funeral.

Breitbart reported:

Breitbart News has independently confirmed an earlier report in People magazine, which reported that Palin was not sent an invitation, and was told through intermediaries to stay away from the ceremony.

McCain fundraiser Carla Eudy confirmed to People that Palin had not been invited — possibly, People speculated, at the behest of the McCain family.

The news comes on the tenth anniversary of the date in 2008 when Palin was announced as McCain’s pick for Vice President.

Palin now joins President Donald Trump on the list of those barred from the funeral.

What Palin did to get herself disinvited from McCain’s funeral is unclear.
What is clear is that his failed presidential bid in 2008 embittered McCain for the rest of his life. He always envied the power of that position, and was never able to obtain it.

Video At Pennsylvania Trump Rally Exposes Biden’s Globalist, Pro-China, Free Trade Track Record

Biden has supported these policies for decades.

President Donald Trump played a video at a Pennsylvania ‘MAGA’ rally on Monday that thoroughly documented Joe Biden’s lengthy, enduring support of globalist free trade and pro-China policies.

In the video, Joe Biden can be heard defending a soft-on-China trade and economic approach, a policy he has promoted over his decades of work in public office.

We want to see China rise.

We talk about China as out competitor… We should be helping.

China is going to eat our lunch? C’mon man! They’re not bad folks, folks.”

The video also breaks down Joe Biden’s false claim that he never advocating for banning fracking, revealing clips in which he responds affirmatively to ending “fossil fuels and fracking” and reemphasizing he’d allow “no new fracking” as President of the United States.

The outsourcing of jobs to cheap-labor countries such as China has devastated many communities in states such as Pennsylvania, which formerly were home to the United States’ manufacturing sector.

Biden has pitched himself as a blue-collar working class guy on the campaign trail, but he hasn’t “worked with his hands”(a phrase he frequently uses) since he went to law school in his early 20’s. President Trump has worked in the world of construction for decades, employing countless contractors, tradesmen and skilled professionals.
