Trump renews attacks on late senator John McCain

Trump renews attacks on late senator John McCain

The daughter of the war hero, who also co-hosts ABC's "The View", responded to Trump's latest tweet about her father with a searing response: "No one will ever love you the way they loved my father", she said.

But this was not "BEFORE the Election", as Trump boldly claimed, because Kramer testified he only was briefed on the dossier by a former British diplomat on November 19, 2016, almost two weeks after Election Day.

First, Trump claims that McCain "sent the Fake Dossier to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Media".

McCain had denied being the source for BuzzFeed after it published the dossier, but acknowledged giving it to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Why did Trump attack McCain?

He had far worse "stains" than this, including thumbs down on repeal and replace after years of campaigning to repeal and replace!

And over the weekend, the tensions resurfaced, as McCain supporters denounced the president's tweets - and, in many cases, the president himself.

Trump's tweets are incorrect in multiple ways: Not only did McCain learn about and obtain the dossier several days after Trump's election, Kramer said during a deposition that he - not McCain - was in touch with media outlets concerning the dossier in December, also after Trump's election.

Trump began unloading on McCain on Saturday afternoon about the dossier and McCain's 2017 vote that scuttled Republicans' attempt to repeal ObamaCare. On Sunday, he derided McCain for having been "last in his class" at the U.S. Naval Academy, from which McCain graduated in 1958.

Second, as for McCain wanting to publish the document "before the election", as the president tweeted, there is no indication that this is true.

Some of McCain's former Senate colleagues defended him in the wake of Trump's tweet. John McCain, R-Ariz., as "last in his class" and the man who leaked the dossier to work with Democrats over a shared hatred to meddle in the 2016 election.

She continued: "I wish I had been given more Saturday's with him".

Meghan McCain has frequently returned Trump's barbs against her family, both directly and indirectly. "Maybe spend yours with your family instead of on twitter obsessing about mine?" Graham was a close friend of McCain but he has in recent months worked closely with Trump.
