Who Paid for McCain's Last Ride?

As usual, we the taxpayers did.  In addition to authorizing the use of Air Force 2, usually reserved for the Vice President and/or First Lady, to transport McCain's remains and family and friends from Arizona to Washington, DC, Trump twitted (or twitched, can never keep this stuff straight) as follows:

"At the request of the McCain family, I have also authorized military transportation of McCain's remains from Arizona to Washington, DC, military pall bearers and band support and a horse and caisson during the service at the Naval Academy." 

And in their gratitude, the McCains trashed him at the funerals. I like to think of them, lolling in the luxury of AF2, picking at the lunch buffet and rehearsing their slams at Trump while they are wafted along at taxpayer's expense.

 It could be argued that they showed their true colors.  Feces brown.
