“MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

President Trump issued a four-word reply Saturday after several speakers at weekend funerals for singer Aretha Franklin and U.S. Sen. John McCain made him a focus of their remarks.
“MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” the president tweeted around 7 p.m. ET.
Earlier Saturday, Meghan McCain, daughter of the late Arizona Republican, had alluded to Trump’s slogan during her eulogy for her father, who died of brain cancer at age 81 on Aug. 25.
“The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great,” McCain said at a memorial service at the National Cathedral in Washington.[…]
On Friday in Detroit, singer Stevie Wonder also made reference to Trump’s slogan during his tribute to Franklin, the legendary recording artist who died of pancreatic cancer at age 76 on Aug. 16.
“What needs to happen today, not only in this nation but throughout the world, is that we need to make love great again,” Wonder said, according to the Hill.
Wonder was just one of several speakers in Detroit who, directly or indirectly, took verbal shots at Trump. Other critics of the president included Georgetown University professor Michael Eric Dyson, the Rev. Al Sharpton and the Rev. Jesse Jackson. More
