Saturday, Meghan McCain took to Twitter, to slam President Trump for correctly pointing out that her father sabotaged attempts to repeal and replace Obamacare and the role he played in distributing the debunked dossier.
We now know that one of the sources of the dossier was a user blog page on CNN where ANY users could post ANY information that was completely unvetted and unverified.
Breitbart reported that former independent counsel Ken Starr appeared on Fox News and said that while McCain was an “American hero,” if reports of his handling of the dossier are accurate, it would be a “very dark stain” on his legacy.
President Trump quoted Starr’s remark, tweeting: “Spreading the fake and totally discredited Dossier “is unfortunately a very dark stain against John McCain. He had far worse “stains” than this, including thumbs down on repeal and replace after years of campaigning to repeal and replace!”
In his autobiography, The Restless Wave, McCain wrote of the dossier that he “did what duty demanded I do” in handing it over to law enforcement. “I discharged that obligation, and I would do it again. Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell,” he declared.
No one will ever love you the way they loved my father…. I wish I had been given more Saturday’s with him. Maybe spend yours with your family instead of on twitter obsessing over mine? https://t.co/q7ezwmHiQ4

Twitter users who support Trump set “The View” host straight.

At the risk of appearing heartless for ur loss, I must say ur dad was no champ. He was member of the Gang of 8; aka a pusher for amnesty. That, &his NO vote w/Obamacare bill to screw Trump proves that he loved himself &special interest groups more than he did We the people.

Can’t agree your dad turned on this country like a 5 year old having a tantrum because he lost the election. His honor will always be respected by me for his service and sacrifice during the Vietnam war but his actions after have a lot to be desired. Sorry

I wouldn’t say “NO ONE” will love him like they loved your father because I love @realDonaldTrump and the way he is standing up for America and exposing the swamp. The crap he and his family has been put through is abhorrent.
I didn’t love your father, respected his service.

Your Dad was a traitor to our country, from Vietnam until the very end. That's just who he was. Let him RIP. And BTW your Dad was jealous of DJT because @realDonaldTrump is honest and brave.
