John McCain appears to have handed his feud with President Trump down to the next generation, reports USA Today, and the latter took to Twitter to apparently respond to Meghan McCain's swipe at his campaign slogan while eulogizing her father on Saturday. "MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN," he tweeted Saturday afternoon from his golf course in Virginia, in response to her statement that "The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great."

The anti-Trump vibes coming out of the funeral had his supporters fuming, notes Politico, with former adviser Katrina Pierson tweeting that unlike John McCain, "@realDonaldTrump ran for @POTUS ONE time and WON. Some people will never recover from that." Meanwhile, over at the New Yorker, Susan B. Glasser calls the funeral not "just another funeral of an elder statesman whose passing would be marked by flowery words about the end of an era. It was a meeting of the Resistance, under vaulted ceilings and stained-glass windows." (More MAGA stories.)
