George Conway defends Klobuchar from Meghan McCain criticism

Lawyer George Conway on Tuesday defended Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) after Meghan McCain told the 2020 Democratic hopeful to leave her father “out of presidential politics.”

“Sen. Klobuchar was perfectly respectful, and the anecdote she told redounded to the late Senator’s credit. His legacy belongs to the nation he devoted his life to serving,” Conway, whose wife, Kellyanne Conway, serves as White House counselor, tweeted.

Klobuchar at a campaign stop in Iowa on Saturday said that the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) listed dictators while watching President Trump’s inauguration.

“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.
