White House Flag Back At Full-Staff Despite Tradition Calling For Half-Staff Until Burial For Sitting Senators

The Daily Beast reports:

The flag at the White House was raised back to full-staff Monday morning, just hours after it had been briefly lowered to recognize the death of John McCain. The move breaks with a tradition that has normally seen sitting senators who die in office have flags lowered until burial — as well as the extraordinarily public disrespect shown by President Donald Trump toward his political enemy.
