“If I had told my dad, 'Seven months after you're dead, you're going to be dominating the news and all over Twitter,' he would think it was so hilarious that our president was so jealous of him that he was dominating the news cycle in death,” McCain told her co-hosts.

"Do not feel bad for me and my family," McCain continued. "We are blessed, we are a family of privilege. Feel bad for people out there who are being bullied who don't have support."

Her remarks come after Trump again attacked McCain over Twitter for voting against a Republican effort to repeal ObamaCare in 2017. Trump said the vote would be a "stain" on the legacy of the former senator, who died of brain cancer in August 2018.

On Monday, Trump stepped up his feud, telling reporters that he was "never a fan" of McCain and never would be.

A number of GOP senators criticized Trump for the remarks.
