President Trump had a very simple response to the criticism he received at Senator John McCain’s funeral.
However, after the memorial service, Trump tweeted out this:
MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

This could possibly be in response to Meghan McCain’s comments during her speech in which she criticized Trump’s famous campaign slogan.
“The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again, because America was always great,” said McCain.

“We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness,” continued McCain. “The real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly, nor the opportunistic appropriation of those who lived lives of comfort and privilege while he suffered and served.”
She may have been pointing out that Trump avoided being drafted four times because of school and medical reasons.
President Obama also had some strong words concerning the present state of politics.
“So much of our politics can seem small and mean and petty, trafficking in bombast and insult, in phony controversies and manufactured outrage,” Obama said. “It’s a politics that pretends to be brave, but in fact is born of fear. John called on us to be bigger than that. He called on us to be better than that.”
