President Donald Trump advised newshounds Tuesday that he used to be “never a fan” of Sen. John McCain, who died last August. The late senator’s daughter, “The View” co-host Meghan McCain, isn’t letting the president’s comments get to her. 

“I think if I had told my dad, ‘seven months after you’re dead, you’re going to be dominating the news and all over Twitter,’ he would think it was hilarious that our president was so jealous of him that he was dominating the news cycle in death as well,” McCain said Wednesday on “The View.”

McCain, 34, also thanked her talk show co-hosts and “The View” staff for their “real sisterhood and support” since her father’s death last summer.

“Do not feel bad for me and my family,” she said, referencing Trump’s comments. “We are blessed, we are a family of privilege. Feel bad for people out there who are being bullied that don’t have support, that don’t have the women of ‘The View’ to come out and support their family. There are kids committing suicide because of cyber bullying online, there are people going through rough times, there are veterans who come back – we have 20 veterans a day committing suicide – focus on these issues. These are the issues I beg the White House to pay attention to.” 

Meghan McCain’s reaction to Trump comes an afternoon after her mom, Cindy McCain, published a hateful, explicit message she had won on social media about her overdue husband. The message known as John McCain a “traitorous piece of warmongering (expletive),” which Cindy mentioned she posted to “be certain that all of you should see how type and loving a stranger will also be.”
