“I sat on that stage between Bernie and John McCain, and John McCain kept reciting to me names of dictators during that speech because he knew more than any of us what we were facing as a nation,” she said, according to HuffPost.

“He understood it. He knew because he knew this man more than any of us did.”

Meghan McCain on Monday criticized Klobuchar for sharing the story.

"On behalf of the entire McCain family — @amyklobuchar please be respectful to all of us and leave my fathers legacy and memory out of presidential politics," McCain tweeted. 

Before he died last year, John McCain was a frequent critic of Trump, while Trump has gone after the late senator on more than one occasion.

George Conway also frequently criticizes Trump.
