11:50 am
of shocked and asked the pope to clarify the pope literally that somehow just as i said kaka they are filled to the top so pope francis visit to ireland is the first pontiff in almost four decades who's trying to reinvigorates the religion in the country until the one nine hundred ninety s. it was a bastion of catholicism but decades of scandals have hugely damaged the perception of the church leave barker reports from dublin. the pope's visit to ireland at this moment of crisis in the catholic church was always going to set the global agenda on how the vatican tackles its legacy of child sex abuse and pope francis didn't waste any time. we going to share. i cannot fail to acknowledge the great scandal caused in ireland by the abuse of young people by members of the church charge of the responsibility for that metatron in education the failure of ecclesiastical authorities to adequately address these repugnant crimes has rightly given rise to outrage i myself share the sentiments. prime

minister has been at the helm of social reforms in the country including the recent popular vote to legalize abortion long prohibited by the catholic church he said it was time to build a new relationship between church and state people kept in dark corners behind closed doors and cries for help that went on heard be and these wounds are still open. and there is much to be done to bring about justice and truth and healing for the victims and survivors. holy father we ask that you use your office and influence to ensure that this is done here in ireland and also around the world. in this saga of widespread abuse of children by members of the catholic church protests were inevitable. these people are looking for action not words from the vatican i do get the feeling though the. trust will not be returned within
11:52 am
the catholic population from simply what will process say to the population he needs to meet me actions are going to be pretty serious action for going to be. alone in silent prayer the leader of one point two billion catholics. later in the day away from the cameras he met eight i were survivors of religious an institutional abuse for ninety minutes likely the most emotional moment of his thirty six hour visit for all involved pope francis has gone further than any pope in acknowledging the church's wrongs but as new allegations of abuse continue to surface the biggest challenge to the church in ireland is the church itself. pope francis is an island and arguably one of the darkest moments in the churches of modern history become pope francis universally respected as a true reformer reinvigorate face and what the catholic church stands for.

11:54 am
a landslide my friends we have we have come to the end of a long journey. merican people have spoken and they have spoken clearly he returned to the senate where he served as a senator for arizona more than thirty years after the war hero missed in the trump election a man with whom mccain had a prickly relationship in the past which did not improve senator mccain emerged as the conscience of the republican party in pushing back against several actions of a president who was the party's new voice on the trump travel ban i think the effect will probably in some areas give isis some more propaganda we don't want to shake news on threats against the media when you look at history the first thing the dictators do is shut down the press and i'm not saying that that's that that president trump is trying to be a dictator i'm just saying we need to learn the lessons of history. on the likely
11:55 am
reaction of past leaders to claims of alternative facts they would be alarmed by the growing inability and even an willingness to separate truth from lives senator mccain served in the vietnam war has aircraft shot down over her noyo he broke his leg and arms suffered torture and spent more than five years as a prisoner of war before returning to the u.s. as a war hero a description he humorously undercut during this visit to the libyan city of benghazi in two thousand and eleven they also served in the united states navy for many years i was a pilot. that they yes but i'm not a very good pilot i was shot down diagnosed with cancer and recovering from head surgery john mccain received a standing ovation when he returned to the hill for a crucial senate vote and the motion is agreed to. he followed the republican line
11:56 am
in voting to open a debate on repealing the affordable care act but in his speech was deeply critical of a senate that he described as more. and more tribal than ever before let's trust each other let's return to regular order we've been spinning our wheels on too many important issues because we keep trying to find a way to win without help from across the aisle and a few days later in the early hours of the morning john mccain put principle before party. defying immense republican pressure to support a bill is repealing barack obama's health legislation he's back. and in that moment he rose above the senate mired in endless squabble offering the hope that governance by consensus rather than by command could still be possible for the right at times john mccain could be wrong but on the strong medic nighty demonstrated truth to himself and to the country he devoted his life to serving
11:57 am
let's go to rob ronald's who's live for us in washington d.c. rob mccain that regularly went against not only his fellow republicans but of course latterly the trump administration as well what's the reaction been like. well rob the american flag is flying at half staff over the white house tonight in honor of senator john mccain but there were no words of praise or oratory of appreciation from the man who occupies the white house there was a terse tweet from president donald trump saying my deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of senator john mccain our hearts and prayers are with you two sentences nary a word about mccain's service in the military or in the senate or in
11:58 am
other. capacities or is running for president twice so this is i think a reflection of those differences between the two men that were brought out and explained in my cannas obituary a few moments ago apparently president trump does not give up on a grudge easily yeah and as mike was saying as you mentioned just a couple of minutes ago the fact that mccain did have cross party support a lot of the time didn't necessarily mean that he had democratic support all the time what's the reaction across the across the divide in washington. really there is almost universal praise for donald for excuse me for the late senator from both parties you see statements from nancy pelosi the leading democrat in the house of representatives the leading democrat in the senate senator chuck
11:59 am
schumer of new york said that he's going to seek to rename one of the large senate office buildings in senator mccain's honor you have comments from president obama as well his office issued a lengthy statement in contrast to president trump's statement it reads in part john mccain and i were members of different generations came from completely different backgrounds and competed at the highest level of politics but we share for all our differences of fidelity to something higher the ideals for which generations of americans and immigrants alike have fought marched and sacrificed and president obama concluded saying few of us have been tested the way john once was or required to show the kind of courage that he did and tonight rob in the online edition of the washington post newspaper here in the united states capitol
12:00 pm
the editorial simply the headline on the editorial about mccain's passing read simply the irreplaceable american rob thank you very much indeed william schneider is a political analyst and he says john mccain's admired by people on both sides of the political divide in the u.s. . he's a beloved figure not primarily for his ideology or his partisanship which are overvalued these days but because of his personal qualities i remember covering the twenty eight republican primaries and we wondered how did john mccain do so well among republicans when he departed from conservative orthodoxy on a lot of issues and the answer was his votes came from republicans who admired him as a person as a heroic figure as a person of great.
