Trump has repeatedly tweeted about John McCain – who died in Aug. 2018 – in recent days, falsely claiming the iconic senator graduated “last in his class” at Annapolis and slamming his role in the Russia investigation.
The president also responded recently to reports McCain and an associate had shared with the FBI and various media outlets the unverified dossier alleging that Moscow held compromising information on Trump – but the outspoken ABC News host thinks her dad would laugh it off.
“If I had told my dad, ‘Seven months after you’re dead, you’re going to be dominating the news and all over Twitter,’” Meghan McCain said on Wednesday. “He would think it was so hilarious that our president was so jealous of him that he was dominating the news cycle in death.”
“He would think it was so hilarious that our president was so jealous of him that he was dominating the news cycle in death.”
"The View" co-host then advised viewers not to feel bad for her family despite the president mocking her father on a regular basis.
“We are blessed. We are a family of privilege,” she said. “Feel bad for people out there who are being bullied that don’t have support.”
Meghan also thanked her “View” colleagues for the on-going support when it comes to defending her father. Co-host Joy Behar slammed Sen. Lindsey Graham on Monday for aligning with President Trump over his old friend, saying the Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman needs to “find his testicularity.”
Earlier this week, the same topic came up on “The View” and Meghan bashed the president for the Twitter attack on her father.
"He spends his weekend obsessing over great men because he knows it and I know it and all of you know it -- he will never be a great man,” she said.
Meghan closed out the rebuke by adding: “I genuinely feel bad for his family. I can’t imagine having a father that does this on the weekends.”
