Trump slams John McCain over vote, Meghan McCain fires back

Senator John McCain died in August of last year, and months later, President Trump is still attacking him.

On Saturday, Trump took to Twitter and slammed McCain over the Russia dossier and Obamacare repeal vote.

“Spreading the fake and totally discredited Dossier ‘is unfortunately a very dark stain against John McCain.’ Ken Starr, Former Independent Counsel,” Trump tweeted. “He had far worse ‘stains’ than this, including thumbs down on repeal and replace after years of campaigning to repeal and replace!”

The late senator’s daughter, Meghan McCain, promptly fired back at the president.

“No one will ever love you the way they loved my father…. I wish I had been given more Saturday’s with him,” she tweeted. “Maybe spend yours with your family instead of on twitter obsessing over mine?”

WASHINGTON, DC - AUGUST 31: Meghan McCain, daughter of Sen. John McCain, touches the casket during the ceremony honoring the late US Senator inside the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol, August 31, 2018 in Washington, DC. A Democrat who voted for Hillary Clinton, Farone said McCain did what was right. 'He never took the easy way out, he knew actions speak louder than words and he never tweeted about it. He just got it done,' she said. The late senator died August 25 at the age of 81 after a long battle with brain cancer. He will lie in state at the U.S. Capitol Friday, a rare honor bestowed on only 31 people in the past 166 years. Sen. McCain will be buried at his final resting place at the U.S. Naval Academy on Sunday. (Photo by Drew Angerer/Getty Images)
