Meghan McCain blasts Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner for attending her father's funeral
Meghan did not mince words on 'The Late Show With Stephen Colbert' when she expressed her disdain for the Trump family for their treatment of her late father
Meghan McCain, co-host of 'The View', has blatantly expressed her contempt for the first family after President Trump routinely attacked her late father John McCain.
Meghan was asked during an appearance on 'The Late Show With Stephen Colbert' to explain her eulogy at his funeral when she said, "We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness, the real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly," stated a Fox News report.
"I have to ask, did you know that Jared and Ivanka Trump would be attending when you wrote this?" host Stephen Colbert asked.
In response, Meghan claimed she didn't think about who would be attending her father's funeral and said she wrote her eulogy "in real time" as he battled cancer. According to her, she had no prior knowledge that the First Daughter and her husband were coming to the event.
"I thought that my family made it clear — or at least I had, that the Trumps were unwelcomed around me and my father, had sort of been very clear about the line between the McCains and the Trumps," she said.
"So I was surprised when they were there and it made me uncomfortable and I hope I made them uncomfortable, honestly, with everything."
Meghan, a "conservative commentator" on 'The View', praised former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama for their tributes to her father and told Colbert her father had designed his funeral to be a "bridging for America". She continued, "I really want it made very clear that the Trumps have beef with me then and in the words of Cardi B, they’re gonna have beef with me forever and I’m not going to forget."
During the 2016 presidential race, then-candidate Trump consistently mocked the Arizona Republican for being a POW. The President continued to criticize McCain even after his death, especially for his negative vote on the Senate's unsuccessful effort to pass the repeal of Obamacare.
