Meghan McCain went after Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) for using her father as an example in a campaign speech on Saturday.

During the senator’s birthday party, which also doubled as a campaign event for the Democratic presidential candidate, Klobuchar shared her perspective on President Donald Trump’s inauguration, saying that she had an interesting experience while sitting beside the late senator.

She said, according to the Des Moines Register:

“I sat on that stage between Bernie and John McCain, and John McCain kept reciting to me names of dictators during that speech because he knew more than any of us what we were facing as a nation. He understood it. He knew because he knew this man more than any of us did.”

However, McCain did not appreciate her father being referenced in the speech and posted a tweet to let the lawmaker know how she felt.

“On behalf of the entire McCain family – Amy Klobuchar please be respectful to all of us and leave my fathers legacy and memory out of presidential politics,” tweeted McCain.

However, the late McCain was no stranger to criticizing Trump, disagreeing with him on multiple issues. As IJR Blue reported, Trump has continuously gone after John McCain both before and after his death.

“The View” co-host has also previously spoken out about the Trump criticism, IJR Blue also noted.

“If I had told my dad, ‘Seven months after you’re dead, you’re going to be dominating the news and all over Twitter,’ he would think it was hilarious that our president was so jealous of him that he was dominating the news cycle in death as well,” McCain said.

See her past comments:

“Do not feel bad for me and my family,” she added. “We are blessed, we are a family of privilege.”

Klobuchar has faced controversy in the past over her treatment of staff, but it is uncertain if this new issue will harm her level of support.

“Support”, what support?


John McCain was a piece of crap, his LEGACY is that he left his DISABLED wife for a younger and richer women and for the MURDER of over 2 hundred AMERICAN SAILORS. F–K HIM!

Yeah, Amy – only Meghan McCain can use her father’s memory to make a political point. How dare you.
