I like Meghan McCain. She normally addresses issues with conservative common sense, while being surrounded everyday on “The View” by a lot of liberal foolishness.
She is also very defensive of her late father, Senator John McCain, and I admire her for that, even though her father evolved over his 36 year Senatorial career…, and not for the better. But he was her father after all, and you can’t fault her for that.
According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “During a segment on Tuesday’s show, Abby Huntsman said she felt sorry for President Trump’s adult children when reading a recent piece in The Atlantic about infighting among the siblings, but McCain didn’t feel the same way.”
‘“No offense, but they crashed my dad’s funeral. They get nothing from me,’ McCain said. ‘They’re not good people.’”
“[President] Trump’s daughter Ivanka and son-in-law [Jared] Kushner were in attendance when [John] McCain was laid to rest last year at Washington National Cathedral after a battle with brain cancer.”
Isn’t that a little harsh, Meghan? “Not good people?”
I have to say, Meghan, how do you “crash” a funeral?
I mean, aren’t people allowed to come to someone’s funeral and pay their respects?
As far as I know, most funerals don’t send out invitations.
I think you should actually give Ivanka and her husband some credit for attending your father’s funeral, and at least representing her family and her father, The President, knowing that her father was not welcome there.
“The View” co-host notably took a subtle jab at the president, who had a longstanding feud with her father, when delivering her eulogy at the funeral.”
“McCain said that her father’s passing, ‘Represented the passing of American greatness. The real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly, nor the opportunistic appropriation of those who lived lives of comfort and privilege while he suffered and served.’”
I get it. You’re proud of your father, and you see him in the best light.
But is his funeral really the place run down other people?
Shouldn’t a funeral be a celebration of the life of the person who has died?
I don’t think you did your father’s memory any favors by re-emphasizing any disagreements between your father and President Trump.
I feel it showed a lack of class actually.
In 2015, after McCain had said Trump’s platform had “fired up the crazies,” Trump retaliated by saying, “He’s not a war hero. He’s a war hero because he was captured? I like people that weren’t captured.”
John McCain is the one who started this feud…, President Trump just finished it, like he usually does.
John McCain demonstrated, again, that he stood firmly with “the establishment forces,” and not with the disenfranchised American people.
President Trump also regularly refers to McCain’s late night vote to kill off a bill to reform ObamaCare, which is something he promised to do, and promoted doing, before his most recent re-election.
It was just another case of “swampy” John McCain showing his true “RINO” (Republican In Name Only) colors.
Sorry, Meghan, but it was what it was.
At a taping of the “The View” later in the week, the co-hosts were previewing this week’s Democratic debates. When the topic turned to some of the candidates outside of the frontrunners tier, Meghan McCain took some digs at the longshots said she “finds some 2020 Democratic candidates laughable.”
Now there’s my girl!
