Donald Trump has a talent for making enemies. And his political enemies aren’t just those who come from the opposing parties. The president has managed to start feuds with Republicans like Mitt Romney, Ben Sasse, Brian Kemp, Brad Raffesnperger and especially John McCain.
The McCain feud was a particularly damaging one for Trump. McCain famously thwarted Trump’s attempt to torpedo the Affordable Care Act. And Cindy McCain, the widow of the Arizona congressman threw her endorsement behind Joe Biden in the 2020 election. Still, Trump can’t resist taking a shot the the legendary senator on Friday. Meghan McCain, the daughter of the former GOP lion, was quick to mock Trump for his Arizona loss.
The knock from Trump came in a tweet that basically had nothing to do with McCain in the first place. He wrote, “New Peter Strzok Texts Undermine Official Narrative on Start of ‘Russia Collusion‘ Investigation. Check out last in his class John McCain, one of the most overrated people in D.C.”
It didn’t take long for McCain’s daughter to respond. Hours later she responded, “Two years after he died, you still obsess over my dad. It kills you that no one will ever love you or remember you like they loved and remember him. He served his country with honor, you have disgraced the office of the presidency. You couldn’t even pull it out in Arizona…”
Two years after he died, you still obsess over my dad. It kills you that no one will ever love you or remember you like they loved and remember him. He served his country with honor, you have disgraced the office of the presidency.
You couldn't even pull it out in Arizona… https://t.co/5RBH5LwvQz
