There’s been a feud going for the past few days between Meghan McCain and Trump over her father, the late John McCain.
It all began on Sunday when Trump tweeted the following:
Spreading the fake and totally discredited Dossier “is unfortunately a very dark stain against John McCain.” Ken Starr, Former Independent Counsel. He had far worse “stains” than this, including thumbs down on repeal and replace after years of campaigning to repeal and replace!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 16, 2019
So it was indeed (just proven in court papers) “last in his class” (Annapolis) John McCain that sent the Fake Dossier to the FBI and Media hoping to have it printed BEFORE the Election. He & the Dems, working together, failed (as usual). Even the Fake News refused this garbage!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 17, 2019
I understand that Trump is angry about McCain’s part in pushing the phony dossier and I’m fine with him quoting from Ken Starr and reasonably tweeting about it. What’s done is done.
Instead Trump tweeted that McCain was “last in his class” in the very next tweet, which no matter how you feel about McCain, was just in very bad form. McCain is dead and cannot defend himself any longer. Cheap shots like that are really uncalled for in my opinion.
Meghan McCain responded to Trump on Twitter…
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

Understandably Meghan ran to her father’s defense on The View, along with her co-hosts. You can watch that if you like.
At some point, either before or after this, Trump retweeted the following tweet, hitting back at Meghan McCain and her father:
Meghan MCCain took a swipe at Trump suggesting “no one will ever love you like they loved my father” WRONG Meghan!— Lori Hendry (@Lrihendry) March 17, 2019
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
McCain then hit back with a cartoon comparing her father to Trump:
Katrina Pierson then changed the cartoon in defense of Trump…
And the very latest is Trump’s comments from today when asked why he is attacking John McCain 7 months after his death:

Let’s be real, he’s attacking McCain because of the dossier, not because of Obamacare. That’s not why these new attacks began on Sunday.
Honestly, I think these attacks on McCain have really gone too far at this point. If Trump wants to make factual statements about what McCain did, I have no issue with that. As I said, what’s done is done and Trump has a right to be angry about it.
But taking cheap shots against McCain and and retweeting people defending him against McCain just isn’t helping and it’s not a good look for the President of the United States. It really needs to stop.
