“Take his name out of your mouth you piece of shit,” Griffin wrote on Twitter Saturday evening.


“You maligned his military service while you did everything to avoid serving. You attacked him repeatedly while you knew he was dying,” Griffin continued.

“And you cozied up to Putin while he did everything he could to oppose him,” she wrote. “F--- you.”

The president tweeted out his condolences to the McCain family earlier Saturday night.

McCain died from brain cancer on Saturday at the age of 81.

He and the president had clashed repeatedly.

Griffin is also a frequent critic of Trump.
