Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner Crash John McCain’s Funeral While Trump Heads To The Golf Course

Although neither Donald Trump nor his wife Melania Trump were in attendance at Sen. John McCain’s memorial service in Washington D.C. on Saturday, his daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner both made an appearance.

Before the ceremony at Washington National Cathedral began, the pair were seen arriving together.

Ivanka, was also spotted giving a hug to Sen. Lindsey Graham, who was a close friend of McCain, reported Axios.

The outlet also reported that the service was attended by other members of the Trump administration including White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis.

Donald Trump, meanwhile, was tweeting and golfing.

As the procession was moving McCain’s casket from the U.S. Capitol to the Washington National Cathedral, the former Celebrity Apprentice host sent out tweets about the attacks on the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

During the funeral, he tweeted about the NAFTA negotiations, threatening to cut Canada out of the deal. Trump also left the White House to travel to his golf course in Virginia during the funeral, Time reported.

Trump hasn’t exactly appeared overly sympathetic towards the McCain family.

In what was widely considered a snub from the president, the White House‘s flags returned to full-staff on Monday, just two days after Sen. McCain died of brain cancer at the age of 81.

Backlash ensued and, after initially addressing Sen. John McCain‘s death with a two-sentence tweet, Trump released a full statement later on Monday announcing that the White House flag would return to half-staff and that Vice President Mike Pence will represent his administration at funeral services.

“Despite our differences on policy and politics, I respect Senator John McCain’s service to our country and, in his honor, have signed a proclamation to fly the flag of the United States at half-staff until the day of his interment,” Trump said.

The proclamation follows suit with similar actions taken by Obama — when Sen. Ted Kennedy died in 2009 and Sen. Daniel Inouye died in 2012. In both cases, Obama asked that flags remain at half-staff until the evening of their internment.

And Ivanka was caught texting during the service:
