John McCain's close friend Lindsey Graham has mixed laughter and tears on the US Senate floor as he remembered "Operation Maverick", which he described as lessons in choosing "what's right at your own expense". Shortly before Trump issued his written statement, the flag was lowered again to half-staff.

Less than two years into his first term, Trump has often come to occupy the role of pariah - both unwelcome and unwilling to perform the basic rituals and ceremonies of the presidency, from public displays of mourning to cultural ceremonies.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer had proposed renaming the Russell building in McCain's honor after the veteran Republican senator died Saturday from brain cancer. "And I am so grateful for the privilege of representing the state and its people".

Later, at an evening dinner honouring evangelical leaders, he said "our hearts and prayers" are going to the family "and we very much appreciate everything that Senator McCain has done for our country".

At his recent rallies, Trump has taken to expounding on his lack of acceptance by the so-called "elites", proclaiming it as a badge of pride.

What annoyed McCain the most, of course, was how Obama was steadily capturing the mantle of change and the air of excitement that he once enjoyed aboard his famous campaign bus, the Straight Talk Express.
