Meghan McCain responds as Trump continues attacks on late father

Meghan McCain responds as Trump continues attacks on late father

In a recent House Oversight Committee testimony, Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen said Trump directed him "not to answer the specific questions by reporters, but rather offer simply the fact that he received a medical deferment".

Meghan McCain has frequently returned Trump's barbs against her family, both directly and indirectly.

In "The Restless Wave", McCain wrote that he gave a copy of the dossier to the Federal Bureau of Investigation on December 9, 2016, a month after the election.

After a weekend of increasingly erratic tweets from President Donald Trump, it was clear what The View was going to tackle Monday morning.

McCain "had far worse "stains" than this, including thumbs down on repeal and replace [Obamacare] after years of campaigning to repeal and replace!", Trump continued.

Trump also slammed McCain Saturday for his vote against a full repeal of the Affordable Care Act on the Senate floor in July 2017. NBC News pointed out that "the legislation opposed by McCain did not have a replacement component".

"Spreading the fake and totally discredited Dossier "is unfortunately a very dark stain against John McCain.' Ken Starr, Former Independent Counsel".

Starr explained: "The more we find out the uglier it becomes. That's what I have to say to Lindsey Graham".

Mike Murphy, another McCain political adviser, displayed no such reluctance to chastise the president: "McCain was a hero", he said. "But I'm very sorry he got implicated in this in terms of spreading this very nasty stuff around".

McCain, who is a co-host of the ABC program, said when she saw the president's tweets she thought that 'your life is spent on your weekends not with your family, not with your friends, but obsessing, obsessing over great men you could never live up to'.

Mark Salter, one of Mr. McCain's closest advisers and co-author of several books with him, was even more biting. "Maybe spend yours with your family instead of on twitter obsessing over mine?"

Meghan McCain, co-host on The View and the late Senator's daughter, took to Twitter to defend her father's legacy, telling Trump "no one will love you" the way McCain was loved.

Another commenter remarked: "Trump is really bad. I may not have the same politics as you do but this is awful". He & the Dems, working together, failed (as usual). Even the Fake News refused this garbage!, the president wrote on Sunday.

Trump the weekend posted a series of tweets criticizing Sen.

President Trump wielded his digital bully pulpit Sunday by again attacking the late senator John McCain (R-Ariz.), making untrue claims about his involvement in a dossier linking Trump to the Russian government, incorrectly stating McCain was "last in his class" at Annapolis and blasting his voting record.

"These are the things he wanted to attack John McCain on?"
