Michelle Malkin Receives Standing Ovation at CPAC for Slamming ‘The Ghost of John McCain’

Right-wing pundit Michelle Malkin was met with a standing ovation after ripping “the ghost of John McCain” during her speech today at CPAC — the largest annual conservative gathering.

Malkin focused much of her speech on slamming undocumented immigrants and politicians who defend their right to stay in the U.S.

“Both parties are to blame,” Malkin said of undocumented immigrants. “Yes, I’m looking at you, retired Paul Ryan and yes, I’m looking at you, Mitch McConnell, and yes, I’m looking at you, Bush family.

“I’m looking at you, the ghost of John McCain,” she added — to a thunderous applause from the audience, who shot up out of their seats after the dig at the deceased Arizona senator.

Malkin continued her speech by calling for increased measures to be taken against undocumented immigrants:

“The feds, under both Republican and Democrat administrations, have proved themselves serially unwilling and incapable of handling the lapses, the backlogs, the overloads and yes, invasion. The numbers tell all. Open borders anarchy multiplied by endless chain migration, amnesty, and cheap labor pipelines endangers our general welfare and the blessings of liberty to which we all pay lip service every time CPAC comes around. By every clear measure, the war is not on immigrants, but on American sovereignty.”
