McCain's widow, daughter punch back at Trump's Twitter tirade

Share

Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., has been one of the most vocal critics of the president's attacks on McCain - saying earlier this week that "America deserves better" and that nobody "is above common decency and respect for people that risk their life for your life".

President of the United States Donald J. Trump has a lot of fights going on at the moment.

"I gave him the kind of funeral that he wanted, which as president I had to approve".

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump continued his freakish vendetta against Vietnam War hero and former Sen.

After last year's controversy over the flag raising, lowering and re-raising, he took to the Senate floor to blast the perceived insult to McCain, although he did not single out the president in his remarks.

Last weekend, Trump attacked McCain in several tweets that targeted his ties to the controversial Russian Federation dossier and his vote against repealing Obamacare. John McCain, shared a hateful message she received from a stranger on the same day that President Donald Trump disparaged her late husband.

Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, the GOP's 2012 presidential nominee whom Trump briefly considered nominating as secretary of state, tweeted praise for McCain on Tuesday.

Trump was openly derisive toward another critic, former Arizona Sen.

On Tuesday, he continued his criticism, telling reporters at the White House that "I was never a fan of John McCain and I never will be".

One McCain Senate vote in particular is the thumbs-down Trump can't seem to forget.

Despite Trump's comments, he gave more than $30,000 to the campaign to elect McCain president in 2008, according to the Federal Election Commission's website.

In fact, McCain's family made clear that Trump was not welcome during the week-long, cross-country ceremonies that the senator had planned himself.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called McCain "a rare patriot and genuine American hero in the Senate". McCain spent years in a Vietnam prison during the war. In an interview with Georgia Public Broadcasting on Wednesday, he called Trump's remarks about McCain "deplorable". She continued, "I will say attacking someone who isn't here is a freakish low".

"We can talk about the politics of the military any way we want to, but we don't talk about our veterans in any way but to brag on them for the service they rendered, the job that they do", Isakson said.

In 2015, after McCain had said Trump's platform had "fired up the crazies", Trump mocked McCain's imprisonment in the Vietnam War, saying: "I like people that weren't captured". He even went so far as to complain that McCain - who, again, is deceased - did not thank him for helping him get a proper funeral.

And on Wednesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, Democrat of NY, said he would re-introduce legislation to rename the Russell Senate Office Building after McCain - a particularly surgical jab at a president who tirelessly promotes his brand name and discusses himself in the third person.
