The Daughter of the late Senator John McCain says she wished that Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner had not attended her fathers funeral.
In an appearance “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” McCain said she had not been aware that the couple would be attending his funeral.
“I thought that my family had made it clear, or at least I had, that the Trumps are unwelcome around me, and that my father had been sort of very clear about the line between the McCains and the Trumps,” she told Colbert. “So I was surprised when they were there. And it made me uncomfortable, and I hope I made them uncomfortable, honestly, with everything.”
“I wish they had chosen not to, out of respect, if nothing more, for me,” she added. “But it’s their call, and I think America can judge on its own what they thought of that, and what they thought of my eulogy.”
McCain’s jab at Ivanka Trump and Kushner comes following Trump’s recent attack on the late senator at a private lunch for television anchors last Tuesday, The New York Times reported.
Meghan McCain also shot back later that day, tweeting, “The president’s obsession with my father 6 months after his death is pathetic and telling – even at a time when he should be focusing on his message to the American public and the state of our union – the greatness of my father’s life and legacy haunts you.”
