The nation will honor John McCain who died Saturday after a yearlong battle with cancer, with days of mourning. Two former presidents are expected to speak at a memorial service for the Arizona Senator who will lie in state in both the nation's capital and Arizona as part of a cross-country funeral procession ending with his burial at the U.S. Naval Academy. Tributes are pouring in from both Democrats and Republicans, as well as from the mainstream media.

Todd Starnes began a recent program by criticizing those in the mainstream media and others for using Sen. McCain's passing for their own political gain.

"The folks at CNN and MSNBC, they are using a war hero's death to score cheap political points. And by the way there are some on the far-right that are piling on too. It's inappropriate, because at the end of the day, he called Trump supporters a bunch of crazies, but in the end, none of that really matters. The only thing that really matters is your family," Starnes said.
