Joining “The Late Show” on Thursday night, Meghan McCain revealed that she wasn’t expecting Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner to attend her father’s funeral after her family made it clear President Donald Trump wasn’t welcome — and she wasn’t exactly happy about it.
Host Stephen Colbert brought up the part of her eulogy when she said, “We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness, the real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly,” and asked, “Did you know that Jared and Ivanka Trump would be attending when you wrote this?”
That’s when McCain shared that she had no idea the president’s daughter and son-in-law would be attending ahead of time, and she didn’t hold back her thoughts:
“I thought that my family made it clear — or at least I had — that the Trumps were unwelcomed around me and my father, had sort of been very clear about the line between the McCains and the Trumps. So I was surprised when they were there and it made me uncomfortable and I hope I made them uncomfortable, honestly, with everything.”
While “The View” cohost went on to praise former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama for their touching eulogies at the late Senator John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) funeral, she reiterated that her family has “beef” with the Trumps.
“I really want it made very clear that the Trumps have beef with me then and in the words of Cardi B, they’re gonna have beef with me forever and I’m not going to forget,” she said.

McCain’s latest comments come just days after she lashed out at the president during an episode of “The View” for a reported insult he lobbed her father’s way recently. It was just the latest development in an ongoing feud between President Trump and John McCain that has apparently continued even after his passing.
