@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. (1/2)— Bridget🌻 (@bridgieleela) March 21, 2019

@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.— Bridget🌻 (@bridgieleela) March 21, 2019
Unfortunately, you could not be counted on to be courteous, as you are a child in the most important role the world knows. (2/2)

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."
Bridget, I am so sorry for what you have had to endure. I respect and appreciate your father's service to our country throughout his entire life. Thank you for sharing him with us -- may he rest in peace, and may his memory be for an eternal blessing.— Lori Kohn (@LoriBKohn) March 21, 2019

Thank you for articulating what so many of us feel, and I am so sorry for your loss. I know how hard the first couple of years after loss can be.— Barbara Stein (@BarbaraAnnStein) March 21, 2019
WHAT TRUMP INITIALLY SAID
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.”
