This month, President Donald Trump spent a significant time attacking the late Senator John McCain. The senator’s daughter was quick to reply to the president, chiding him for his attacks.


Last Friday, Meghan McCain applauded her younger sister for having the courage to speak up against Trump too.


Meghan McCain wasn’t the only one who lashed out at President Donald Trump for his attack on her later father, Senator John McCain. She sent out an Instagram post praising her younger sister, Bridget McCain, 27, for speaking up against the president as well.


“The View’s” co-host wrote:

“Incredibly proud of my brave sister Bridget @bridgyyyyboo for speaking out against President Trump. I love you more than I could ever possibly say. Your strength and grace continues to help carry us all through our grief [black heart emoji].”

She included two pictures of her sister, one showing their father sitting beside them. The co-host also added screenshots of her sister’s message to Trump.



Via Twitter last On Thursday, Bridget spoke out against the president after he criticized the McCain family for not thanking him for "approving" the senator’s funeral last year after. The senator passed following a battle with brain cancer.

John’s youngest daughter wrote:

“@realDonaldTrump Everyone doesn’t have to agree with my dad or like him, but I do ask you to be decent and respectful. If you can’t do those two things, be mindful. We only said goodbye to him almost 7 months ago.”


She added:

“@realDonaldTrump Even if you were invited to my dad’s funeral, you would have only wanted to be there for the credit and not for any condolences. Unfortunately, you could not be counted on to be courteous, as you are a child in the most important role the world knows.”


While on “The View” Meghan announced to the world how brave her sister was. She said, “I don't like coming here every day and having to do this...It's extremely emotionally exhausting."


The co-host added:

“I'm not the only child in my family. I have six brothers and sisters. And my little sister Bridget, for the first time ever, has decided she wanted to speak out — she's very, very private."

Showing how proud she was of her sister she concluded: “It's very brave of her. She's very young and does not speak publicly." Bridget had stepped back from the spotlight following the 2000 presidential primaries.



While speaking at a tank plant in Lima, Ohio last week the president said:

"I gave him [John McCain] the kind of funeral he wanted — which, as President, I had to approve. I don’t care about this,” he then added, going on to say, “I didn’t get a thank you.”

Before that, Trump had attacked the late senator over the repeal of former President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act or Obamacare. He stated “a lot of people are asking me, because they love me, about a man named John McCain," and “I’ve never liked him much…probably never will.”
