In July, Meghan McCain was still proud of calling Hillary Clinton “Crooked Hillary,” while referring to Trump as “President Trump,” so don't ask me to shed a tear for her grief, or to cheer her on for her too-little-too-late shading of Trump during her father's over-the-top funeral:
Meghan McCain: “My father was a great man. He was a great warrior. He was a great American. I admired him for all of these things, but I loved him because he was a great father.”— CNN (@CNN) September 1, 2018

President Obama also seemed to address Trump in his eulogy:

At the gym for part of the telecast, I overheard the woman next to me tell her trainer George W. Bush was a doofus as he spoke. I wish it were his funeral instead, I muttered. She replied, I'd vote for him at this point, seemingly a dig at Trump. Her trainer raved of W, That guy was always happy! This is the level of discourse at this point — a horrendously bad president who dragged us into a historically devastating war and destroyed the U.S. economy nearly beyond repair is repatriated because he smiles a lot.
Oh, and he loves to pass out candies:
