On The View Monday, Meghan McCain reacted to President Donald Trump after he attacked her father, John McCain, during a weekend Twitter rant. Trump went after John McCain for his ties to ties to the controversial Russia dossier, and his vote against repealing Obamacare. And Megan McCain later sent a tweet of her own.
No one will ever love you the way they loved my father.... I wish I had been given more Saturday’s with him. Maybe spend yours with your family instead of on twitter obsessing over mine? https://t.co/q7ezwmHiQ4— Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) March 16, 2019
And after being applauded for that response by her fellow View co-hosts, Meghan expanded on those thoughts.“He spends his weekend obsessing over great men because he knows it and I know it and all of you know it, he will never be a great man. My father was his kryptonite in life, he’s his kryptonite in death,” Meghan said. “And I just thought, ‘your life is spent on your weekends not with your family, not with your friends but obsessing, obsessing, over great men you could never live up.’ That tells you everything you needed to know about his pathetic life right now.”Some viewers on Twitter applauded Meghan’s response and thought she said it perfectly.
A very well stated (and restrained) response by @MeghanMcCain . Her father would be proud, I'm sure.— Ginny Tourek (@ginnytourek) March 18, 2019
Well said Megan! Your grace & poise is greatly admired...THANK YOU— Kevin Hoeg (@kevinhoeg) March 18, 2019
Meghan is not my favorite but I think she nailed this— charlie h (@charliehennessy) March 18, 2019
Amen, Meghan! Bless you for keeping your composure while speaking the truth.— Louise Kalouria (@OnePotata2) March 18, 2019
But others didn’t seem to buying her attacks on Trump, and think she’ll be back to defending many of his actions and policies before you know it.
here's the thing, she will just defend him next week. so what does it matter— CJ360Nation (@npcj3600) March 18, 2019
McCain was a hero but he also was a corrupt politician. Both can be true at the same time.— Nathan Holt (@sk8king1986) March 18, 2019
Meghan MCCain took a swipe at Trump suggesting “no one will ever love you like they loved my father” WRONG Meghan!Millions of Americans truly LOVE President Trump, not McCain. I’m one! We hated McCain for his ties to the Russian dossier & his vote against repealing Obamacare — Lori Hendry (@Lrihendry) March 17, 2019
Meghan only cares when it affects her directly. She’s a federalist and an archcon. No sympathy.— AMI (@amymindell1) March 18, 2019
To finish her thoughts on Trump’s attacks, Meghan said that she genuinely feels bad for his family.“I can't imagine having a father that does this on the weekend,” she said, with Joy Behar replying: “Oh, they're all on the same page. Don't feel sorry for them.”The View airs weekdays at 11 a.m. on ABC.Watch what happened when Whoopi Goldberg made a surprise return to The View:
