Meghan McCain went on “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen” to promote her new autobiography, “Bad Republican.” While she was there she also discussed former President Donald Trump and his family.

When McCain’s father, John McCain, died in 2018 the Trumps were not invited to the funeral. Regardless, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump attended the memorial service. At the time McCain revealed her disappointment in their attendance, saying on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, “In the words of Cardi B, they’re gonna have beef with me forever.” Apparently she is still upset with them.

“They should never have come,” McCain said. “They had no business being there. I remember seeing them and seeing her specifically. They had no goddamn business being there and it’s something that still angers me clearly.”

McCain also discussed a phone call she had with Donald and Melania Trump after it was reported that the then president had mocked her father’s injuries, which he sustained in the Vietnam War.

“It was a very weird conversation,” McCain recalled. “[Donald Trump] said, ‘It's all fake news! It's a lie. I never did that, I never did that, I never did that.”

While the conversation was “weird,” McCain believed that it was a moment in which the Trumps realized they may have crossed the line with their political rhetoric.

“It was, like, very uncomfortable because it was the only time I've ever had an interaction with them,” McCain said. “And it was the closest they've ever come, I felt, to realizing what they were doing and the damage it caused.”
