Fans slam Meghan McCain for saying she ‘hates’ America without late father John's leadership

The 34-year-old TV host shared some of her feelings regarding the loss of her father in an interview and it brought her heavy criticism on social media from people from both major political parties.

The daughter of late Senator John McCain is under fire over the remarks she made on CNN’s the “Van Jones Show” on January 26 when she told the journalist that she “hates” the US since her father is not around.

Meghan, who has previously admitted that she was disappointed about the turn the Republican Party took since the rise of Donald Trump and now calls herself a “conservative,” sparked a reaction from people from across the political spectrum.

"As an American, I hate this country without him in it. I know that sounds awful. I don’t hate America but I just hate it without his leadership."

Her comment infuriated and baffled several Twitter users that rushed to the social network to reply to Meghan’s bold statement.

“As it is not likely that John McCain will make a comeback in the near future, I guess Meghan is bound to hate the US for a LONG time,” user Sergio Bretas wittily commented.

“There are others doing the right thing @MeghanMcCain they just don't happen to be in the Republican Party right now,” wrote another user. 

"I’m still a member of the Republican Party. I still vote on the Republican ticket, but Republicanism is so tied up with being for Trump," Meghan shared with Jones.

“Then leave. Meghan McCain got her wealth from her mother and her last name and fame because of her father. She is the last person to listen to about anything really. Her resume is basically ‘I’m John McCain's daughter’” a user added.

“As good as he may have been @MeghanMcCain there are a lot of very good people in leadership who are just as good. They all just happen to be in the party you don't support. You really need some bereavement counseling,” wrote @vickrouseh1950.

"I’m still a member of the Republican Party. I still vote on the Republican ticket, but Republicanism is so tied up with being for Trump," Meghan shared with Jones.

Meghan’s reasons to dislike Trump so much are both political and personal, something she made clear on July 2018, when her father was still alive, by saying that she was never going to forgive Trump for his attacks to the Senator.
