It has now been confirmed that Sarah Palin has been barred from attending  John McCain’s funeral.


Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, who was Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)’s running mate in the 2008 presidential election, has been excluded from his funeral.

Breitbart News has independently confirmed an earlier report in People magazine, which reported that Palin was not sent an invitation, and was told through intermediaries to stay away from the ceremony.

McCain fundraiser Carla Eudy confirmed to People that Palin had not been invited — possibly, People speculated, at the behest of the McCain family.

This isn’t all that shocking. McCain recently stated he wished he hadn’t chosen Palin as his running mate in 2008 due to the fact she led to the beginning of the Tea Party/Trump movement. Although McCain attacked her Palin stood silent and had nothing bad to say about John McCain.

It certainly raises questions that McCain asked his opponent in the 2008 presidential election to give a speech while not inviting his loyal running mate Sarah Palin to the funeral at all.
