'He Will Never Be a Great Man': Meghan McCain Responds to ‘Pathetic' Trump Slam of Her Father

Trump lashed out repeatedly at John McCain over the weekend. Meghan McCain said the president has a "pathetic life"

"The View" co-host Meghan McCain finally had an opportunity to respond on air Monday following a series of tweet rants by President Donald Trump over the weekend that besmirched and ridiculed her late father, deceased Arizona Senator John McCain.

Trump lashed out at McCain for his crucial vote against repealing Obamacare in 2017. He later spoke out regarding reports in conservative media outlets that cite court documents that say a former aide to McCain was the source of a leak that put a Trump opposition-research dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele into the hands of multiple media outlets in late 2016.

“Listen, he spends his weekends obsessing over great men because — he knows it, and I know it, and all of you know it — he will never be a great man,” McCain said. “My father was his kryptonite in life, he was his kryptonite in death.” McCain went on to say that when her father was alive, they spent their days “really celebrating life,” but Trump doesn’t seem to want to do that. “I just thought, ‘Your life is spent on your weekends not with your family, not with your friends, but obsessing — obsessing — over great men you could never live up to,'” she said. “That tells you everything you need to know about his pathetic life right now.”

McCain added, “I genuinely feel bad for his family. I can’t imagine having a father that does this on the weekends.”
