On The View Wednesday, Meghan McCain addressed the latest comments made by President Donald Trump about her father, the later senator John McCain.
“I was never a fan of John McCain, and I never will be,” Trump told reporters on Tuesday after breaking down some of the reasons for his disdain.
Meghan responded on The View by saying it’s “bizarre” that the president keeps making her father a hot topic on
“I think if I had told my dad, ‘Seven months after you’re dead, you’re going to be dominating the news and all over Twitter,’ he would think it was hilarious that our president was so jealous of him that he was dominating the news cycle in death as well,” she said.
Meghan also commented on recent death threats and nasty comments directed at her and her mother, Cindy McCain, on social media.
“Do not feel bad for me and my family. We are blessed. We are a family of privilege,” McCain said. “Feel bad for people out there who are being bullied that don’t have support, that don’t have women of The View to come out and support their family. There are kids committing suicide because of cyber bullying online.”
Cyberbullying was a common theme in the discussion, with co-host Sunny Hostin saying that the epidemic is coming straight from the top, and calling out first lady Melania Trump.
“Her platform is about cyberbullying. She is a mother. Why is Cindy McCain being bullied? Why are her children being attacked?” Hostin wondered. “I would like to see the Trump family stop this in the White House. In their family, in their house.”
Meghan also took the time to thank her View co-hosts for the support, even suggesting that she’ll let common sparring partner Joy Behar handle any future problems for her. And Meghan also had some parting words for the president: “My dad’s not here, but I’m sure as hell here. And I co-host The View man,” McCain said.
The View airs weekdays at 11 a.m. on ABC.
