Meghan McCain Rips Trump's "Pathetic" Tweets About Her Father on 'The View'

Senator John Mc Cain and Meghan Mc Cain on'The View

Months after Sen. John McCain's (R-AZ) death, President Donald Trump on Saturday and Sunday took pot shots at McCain on Twitter over his role in handing off the so-called "Steele Dossier" to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

On "The View" Monday, Meghan McCain said Trump "spends his weekend obsessing over great men" because "he will never be a great man". McCain went on to say that when her father was alive, they spent their days "really celebrating life", but Trump doesn't seem to want to do that.

In a tweet, Trump quoted the independent counsel Ken Starr as saying it was a "very dark stain" against McCain that he apparently helped spread the dossier, compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele and financed in part by Democrat Hillary Clinton's campaign.

Trump's recent attack on McCain, who passed away in August, is the latest in his years-long offensive feud against the late senator, this time targeting McCain's ties to the controversial Russian Federation dossier and his vote against repealing Obamacare. The most salacious and damning allegations in the dossier remain unverified to this day. At the time, Meghan McCain tweeted "the president's obsession with my father 6 months after his death is pathetic and telling".

President Donald Trump continues to criticize the late Sen. "He & the Dems, working together, failed (as usual)".

Now, it's important to know, one, that the late John McCain, he died in August, and the president has continued to attack him. McCain was a Vietnam War veteran and POW.

McCain had denied being the source for BuzzFeed after it published the dossier but acknowledged giving it to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. McCain reportedly gave the document to a senior Federal Bureau of Investigation counterintelligence agent, while Kramer shared it with journalists from over a dozen media outlets, including CNN, the Washington Post and BuzzFeed, in an attempt to get them to publish it ahead of the election.

'My father was his kryptonite in life.

She responded to the president's tweet on Sunday by tweeting: "My father lives rent free in your head". "The McCain family doesn't deserve it and neither does this great country".

Meghan McCain, bristling at the remark, fired back with her own Twitter post, in which she said that "no one will ever love you the way they loved my father".

Meghan McCain, 34, who is known for being outspoken about her beliefs, took to Twitter on March 16 to slam President Donald Trump, 72, for tweeting negative words about her late father, John McCain. "I like people who weren't captured", Trump said in 2015.
