Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, said Monday "it's ridiculous" that Sen. John McCain's final wishes, including that he may not want President Trump at his funeral.

"I'd like everybody to take a collective breath and chill out on my dad for a second, especially Orrin Hatch", Meghan McCain said about her dad, Sen. Hatch goes on to say that after all "he's the president of the United States and he's a very good man".

"He would be a very interesting speaker and would do a good job for John", Hatch told CNN. But it's up to John.

Hatch was also asked if he would try to change Sen.

While former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush are expected to make eulogies at any potential funeral for McCain, some Twitter users predicted that Trump would retaliate by disinviting McCain to his own funeral before killing himself to bring about those circumstances sooner than would otherwise be expected.

McCain has been battling an aggressive form of brain cancer for more than a year.

South Africa was initially reluctant to play their day-night match in 2016 sighting an extra advantage for the home team. In contrast, Sri Lanka happily agreed to play the Aussies in a day-night Test at the Gabba later in January.

McCain also blasted the USA president in his upcoming memoir titled "The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and other Appreciations", which McCain refers to as his last book. McCain endured years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who is a close friend of Senator McCain and visited him at his Arizona ranch the prior weekend, said the two talked about how the U.S.'s "international reputation is being damaged" under Trump.

"I've spoken out of turn", Hatch told reporters Tuesday, according to The Hill.

"I agree with the daughter", a remorseful Hatch told The Washington Post on Tuesday.

Hatch spokesman Matt Whitlock confirmed to USA Today that "Senator Hatch sent a note directly to Senator McCain" but he said Hatch "won't be sharing it publicly".
