Meghan McCain lashes out at Giuliani after he calls Biden ‘mentally deficient idiot’

Meghan McCain, daughter of Senator John McCain, slammed President Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani for calling former Vice President Joe Biden “a mentally deficient idiot.”

“I am disgusted by Giuliani’s abhorrent and idiotic comments about Joe Biden. Joe Biden is one of the great political leaders of all time, one of the truly decent men left in politics – and someone my family has looked to for strength during the most difficult time in our lives,” “The View” co-host tweeted Friday.

Giuliani made the remark in an interview with the Huffington Post. On the topic of potential Democratic candidates for 2020, Giuliani targeted Biden, saying, he “is a moron.”

The publication adds that Giuliani claimed, “Biden finished last in his law school class at Syracuse University and had been unable to understand issues Giuliani tried to discuss with him when he was a federal prosecutor and Biden was a Delaware senator. ’I’m calling Joe Biden a mentally deficient idiot.’”

The former New York City mayor then went on CNN and defended his comments, repeating his comments about the former Vice President’s poor law school performance and accusing him of plagiarism.

Biden has been a vocal critic of the Trump administration.

In a wide-ranging speech at the New York state Democratic convention in May, Biden sharply criticized the Republican Party for its “fake nationalism.”

CNN quotes him as telling the audience that many of our values are “under siege by this administration.”

“This is not your father’s Republican Party. This is a different deal. They are not — they are not who we are. They are not who America is. But what they are doing is they’re sending a vision of America that’s distorted, that’s damaging, that is hurting us. With its phony populism. And this fake nationalism,” Biden added.
