Mark Levin: John McCain Funeral Coverage ‘Seems a Little Over the Top' (video)
[Breitbart] Conservative talker Mark Levin told listeners of his nationally syndicated radio show Thursday that media coverage of the late Sen. John McCain’s memorial services "has gone on a little too long," and "seems a little over the top."

Transcript is as follows:

And I say this with the deepest of sincerity – and I don’t want calls on this, by the way: Am I the only person in America who thinks the passing of McCain and the news coverage has gone on a little too long and it’s a little too much? Really, you can honor somebody, but this is going on day after day after day after day after day. And I don’t say this out of any animus whatsoever, period. Why do some public officials get this kind of treatment – Kennedy, McCain, so forth – and others get no treatment whatsoever. You’ve probably never even heard of them, probably weren’t on TV as much as say McCain or Lindsey Graham and so forth.

#9  Sampling of the 'deep state' creatures who were invited to attend the funeral. Yet another indicator.

#8  Crafting one's own funeral attendance list was a key indicator.

#7  Its because he was such a friend of the left and when he wasn't a friend of the left he was a DC one party, self serving politician, but I repeat myself.

#6  Media and Dems oved McCain except for that one year, when he was worse than Satan.

#5  It's done to tweak Trump and encourage future "mavericks".

#4  I look forward to the end of the story, so we can go back to non-stop, full time, 24-7 Trump-thumping.

#2  The MSM seems to be gushing and fawning over McCain. It is way over the top.

Are they talking about same John McCain? Isn't this the same guy who told Sen. John Cornyn "F#2k You" on the Senate floor over an immigration bill?--the mean-spirited, vindictive, strident one?

I guess most funerals tend to varnish over flaws.

#1  Agreed. I caught about a minute of this at the local grocery store yesterday morning, and the speaker was going on and on and on about how wonderful McCain is, and that part was definitely over the top, almost nauseatingly so. The cherry on top of it all? Paul Ryan sitting in the front row, smiling the whole time.
