Meghan McCain slams Ivanka and Jared, says 'they're not good people'
While discussing the story on 'The View' co-host Meghan McCain felt compelled to say she had no empathy for the Trump children.
Recent reports have suggested that there is a lot of infighting happening at the Trump household even though the White House has flatly denied all the rumors.
The Atlantic published a detailed account of all the Trump family's rise, political aspirations and the alleged infighting between siblings Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. Ivanka chose to shoot down these reports by continuing to work as her father's senior aide unfazed.
While discussing the story on Tuesday's 'The View', co-host Meghan McCain felt compelled to say she had no empathy for the Trump children. Co-host Abby Huntsman had a different point of view and shared that she found herself feeling sorry for the children at different moments in time.
"No offense, they crashed my dad’s funeral. They get nothing from me," McCain chimed in referring to how Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner went to Senator John McCain‘s service last year. "They're not good people," Meghan added. Despite how McCain described it, Sen. Lindsey Graham, one of Sen. McCain’s closest friends had checked with widow Cindy McCain and had reportedly invited Ivanka and Jared.
McCain had some more to say about Ivanka on the show and has previously also criticized her. She shared that Ivanka and Jared are not qualified for such high-profile positions. "I still don’t know what she [Ivanka] does all day. … I know she does women’s initiatives but that’s all very nebulous," McCain said.
A spokeswoman for the White House, Jessica Ditto shared with PEOPLE, "The idea that the hosts of The View or a reporter at The Atlantic have any factual reads on what goes on within the Trump family is completely asinine." She added that Ivanka was very proud of the administration and the work they have accomplished in two years.
Ditto also slammed the comments about the rift in the family and said that the information was false and from a flimsy source. She contended that The Atlantic article was more smoke than fire: “All of this is false and a flimsy single anonymous source will not succeed at creating a rift in the family.”
