CNN’s Jim Acosta claimed that John McCain’s funeral did not require President Trump’s approval but forgot to mention that McCain was transported on Air Force Two which would have in fact required presidential approval.
PolticusUSA posted an article with the headline “Trump Busted For Massively Stupid Lie About Approving John McCain’s Funeral
President Trump on John McCain: "I gave him the kind of funeral that he wanted, which as president I had to approve. I don't care about this. I didn’t get thank you. That's ok. We sent him on the way, but I wasn't a fan of John McCain." pic.twitter.com/hG4XwOiIBO
