Trump attacks Meghan McCain and her family
Former President Trump attacked Meghan McCain and her family in a statement Friday, mocking her for saying she left ABC’s “The View” due to a toxic work environment and going after her father, the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who died in 2018.
“Isn’t it funny that Meghan McCain, who has always been a bully and basically a lowlife, is now complaining that it was she who was bullied by the Slobs and Radical Left maniacs of ‘The View,’ ” Trump said.
“In any event, Meghan should fight the Communists instead of explaining how they beat her, hurt her, and made her ‘physically ill.’ She should fight back against the Losers of The View the way she fights against very good and well-meaning Republicans, and she would do herself a world of good,” the former president added.
In a new audiobook titled “Bad Republican,” McCain said there was “toxic, direct and purposeful hostility” towards her from her co-hosts.
Trump also attacked Meghan McCain’s father.
“At the request of many of her representatives, I made it possible for her father to have the world’s longest funeral, designed and orchestrated by him, even though I was never, to put it mildly, a fan. In his own very special way, he was a RINO’s RINO,” Trump said, using an acronym for “Republican in name only.”
In the statement, Trump continued to push the false narrative that he won the state of Arizona in the 2020 presidential election despite having no evidence for the claim.
Trump has continuously attacked the McCain family since John McCain died in 2018, with Meghan McCain firing back at Trump’s comments.
Meghan McCain recently said Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, and Jared Kushner had no right to go to her father’s funeral after Trump’s behavior.
“They should never have come,” Meghan McCain said. “They had no business being there.”
