"We had a gentleman way into the morning hours go thumbs-down," the president said, not mentioning John McCain by name, according to a CNN report.

"He went thumbs-down."

The president was referring to the thumbs-down motion that McCain made during a late-night vote last year on an ObamaCare repeal-and-replace measure.

The senator's vote helped doom the effort. 

According to CNN, a woman twice shouted "He's a war hero'' after the president’s remarks. 

Trump made the remarks just hours after he signed an executive order reversing his administration's policy of separating migrant families that illegally cross the border.
