“I’m aware my father has never been invited to speak at CPAC. I know he’s not a conservative darling,” McCain said on “The View.” “But why, at this moment, when he’s suffering through the worst brain cancer that exists and going through chemo, why [isn’t there] a modicum of respect for my family at this moment?”

“Your father is a national hero,” Schlapp replied. “He has served his country, he has fought for his life before and is fighting for his life now, and I think we all respect that. My conversations, when I talk about your dad, is just to keep him in our prayers.”


Schlapp later said there’s a “disagreement on policy questions” when it comes to John McCain.

“Meghan, I have a lot of respect for you, too, and your family,” he said. “I think it’s OK in America to disagree with someone’s votes in the Senate.”

Schlapp on Twitter last week said John McCain’s vote against the bill was “worth a boo.” Meghan McCain fired back, accusing Schlapp of “making excuses for the inexcusable.”
