During an episode of “The View,” McCain called Trump out for recent comments he made about those that have criticized him in the past.
McCain said that while she was prepping her notes for the address, she got “a notice that President Trump had a meeting with the network heads, and he had called Sen. Chuck Schumer a ‘nasty son of a b***h’, Joe Biden ‘dumb,’ said some disparaging things once again of my father, who passed five and a half months ago.”
“So for me, when he’s talking about ‘we must reject the politics of revenge, resistance politics, and retribution,’ you aren’t being bipartisan mere hours earlier, obsessing over people you consider your enemies,” McCain said.

She ended by criticizing what she saw as a pointless speech.
“For me, it was a Kabuki theatre, virtue signal — the entire speech last night towards his base,” she said. “But please don’t sit here and tell me you are grasping for bipartisanship at this moment when Chuck Schumer’s a son of a b***h, and my father’s book, quote, ‘bombed,’ and Joe Biden is, quote, ‘dumb.'”
