Meghan McCain Glares At Vice President Mike Pence During Her Father's Funeral

Sen. John McCain is lying in state in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda, where only 30 Americans have had the same honor.

While several social media users suggested that Meghan McCain was glaring mainly because Pence mentioned Trump in his speech, Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin went into further detail, writing that the senator's daughter might have been specifically reacting to Pence being a "spineless" representative of the president, who has yet to publicly condemn his controversial statements and actions. "To pay a debt of honor and respect to a man who served our country throughout his life in uniform and in public office, and it is my great honor to be here".

Pence said, "John McCain will be missed".

Before his death, McCain requested Trump not attend his funeral.

Pence then praised McCain's service in Congress, calling him "one of the most unwavering advocates of our Armed Forces to ever serve".

"In every generation, there are those who put country first, who prize service ahead of self, who summon idealism from a cynical age", Pence added.
