Meghan McCain gave an interview on Tuesday where she responded to President Trump‘s warning towards her father after his speech against “spurious nationalism.”
In a Good Morning America interview with George Stephanopoulos, McCain noted that Trump and her father clearly have different ideas about the best direction of the country. She went on to declare that she’s “exhausted” with the GOP’s infighting and the attacks against her dad after all the challenges he has already faced.
“I don’t know if you guys have heard but my father is fighting glioblastoma right now and there’s nothing that could possibly happen or be threatened to me and my family that couldn’t possibly be more painful than what we are going through right now…I’m telling you, we’re a tough ride-or-die family, and right now, there’s really nothing that could possibly happen that could possibly be more complicated.”
McCain continued to hope that America would eventually reach a point where difference of opinion will not be automatically received with political threats.
Earlier this week, Senator John McCain delivered a speech where he slammed “unpatriotic” dogma and people who would rather attack scapegoats than find answers to political issues. These remarks were construed as a rebuke of Trump, and the president responded by saying it “won’t be pretty” when he starts counterpunching.
