Meghan McCain, co-host of “The View,” addressed head on her disdain for the Trump family because of their treatment of her late father, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).
While Appearing on “The Late Show,” McCain was asked to elaborate about the part of her eulogy at her father’s funeral when she said, “We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness, the real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly.”
“I have to ask, did you know that Jared and Ivanka Trump would be attending when you wrote this?” Stephen Colbert asked.
McCain explained that she wrote her eulogy “in real time” as the senator was battling cancer and didn’t think about who would be attending his funeral. She did clarify that she didn’t know that the president’s daughter and son-in-law were coming in advance.
“I thought that my family made it clear — or at least I had, that the Trumps were unwelcomed around me and my father, had sort of been very clear about the line between the McCains and the Trumps. So I was surprised when they were there and it made me uncomfortable and I hope I made them uncomfortable, honestly, with everything.”
McCain has become a well known conservative commentator, she told the host of “Late Night” that her father designed his funeral to be a “bridging for America” and praised former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama for their tributes to her father.
“I really wanted made very clear that the Trumps have beef with me then and in the words of Cardi B, they’re gonna have beef with me forever and I’m not going to forget,” McCain continued.
The battle between the Trump’s and the McCain’s began in the 2016 campaign. Candidate Trump ridiculed the Arizona senator for being a prisoner of war. That feud has continued even since McCain’s death. The president echoed criticism for McCain’s thumbs-down vote on the Senate’s failed effort to pass the “skinny repeal” of Obamacare.
