Meghan McCain: Ivanka, Melania Are 'Complicit' In Trump's Bullying Of Widows
Meghan McCain, a co-host of The View and daughter of the late Senator John McCain, offered a biting response to President Donald Trump’s recent attack on a deceased congressman and his widow, saying there is “a special kind of horrific monstrosity in this man” that he exhibits such behavior.
But McCain also went after First Lady Melania Trump and the president’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, for failing to condemn his remarks, according to People.
“The Be Best anti-bullying crap, I don’t want to hear any more from anybody,” she said. “I don’t want to hear it from Ivanka, I don’t want to hear it from Melania, until you get him in line when it comes to disparaging people.”
McCain continued: “When you’re disparaging widows and people who have served the country and war heroes who are passed — again, I know something about it — until you get [him] in line, you are complicit in this as well.”
During his campaign rally on Wednesday night — the same night he was impeached by the House — Trump mentioned Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) and attacked her for voting in favor of his impeachment. He then went on to mock her husband’s death.
Dingell’s husband, the late Rep. John Dingell, whose seat she now holds, passed away in February, and Trump took a few minutes at his rally to describe the emotional phone call he had with the congresswoman regarding her husband’s funeral.
“‘John would be so thrilled,’” Trump said the widow told him. “‘He’s looking down, he’d be so thrilled, sir.’”
“Maybe he’s looking up, I don’t know,” Trump added, causing audible groans from the audience. "Maybe, but let's assume he's looking down."
“There is a special kind of horrific monstrosity in this man that does this type of thing to widows,” Meghan said of Trump’s comment.
McCain had previously responded to Trump’s remarks on Twitter, writing: “This is horrific. Just horrific. It’s hard for me to eloquently say how disgusted I am by this. I am just so deeply sorry the Dingell family is being subjected to this bile. Is this what the Trump family version of #BeBest is? Bullying widows at a public rallies? SICK.”
