John McCain’s daughter, Meghan McCain, admonished Donald Trump and his family for publically condemning her fathers record of service even though no one in the Trump family has ever had any experience in the Military.
‘This is the first time in my entire life I’ve had my family’s service to this country questioned,’
Prior to Meghan’s interview speaking about Trump. Sen. John McCain disparaged Trump for for attacking the family of Humayun Khan, a Muslim-American soldier who died while serving in Iraq. McCain said:
‘In recent days, Donald Trump disparaged a fallen soldier’s parents, He has suggested that the likes of their son should not be allowed in the United States — to say nothing of entering its service. I cannot emphasize enough how deeply I disagree with Mr. Trump’s statement. I hope Americans understand that the remarks do not represent the views of our Republican party, its officers, or candidates.’
Spoken like a true politician.
Trump responded to McCain’s statement by retaining his support in McCain’s battle to hold his Senate seat and basically threw him under the bus claiming that he was ineffectual on veterans’ issues
‘He has not done a good job for the vets and I’ve always felt he should have done a much better job for the vets. So I’ve always had a difficult time with John for that reason, because our vets are not being treated properly,’
Vaguely stated by Donald Trump.
In response to Trump’s statement about her father, Meghan spoke on Outnumbered Wednesday afternoon, noting that her both of her brothers were deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq among other places and served with honor while Trump’s sons were doing reality television shows.
‘So being told that my family doesn’t understand war and veterans and veterans issues breaks my heart. ‘
‘I am the granddaughter and great granddaughter of two navy admirals, my family understands veterans’ issues I can assure you.”
Meghan concluded her thoughts about Trump’s statement by rightfully stating the Trump family has no idea of the hardships the families of the soldiers who are deployed feel about seeing their loved ones go, not knowing if they will ever see them again.
‘I’m no better than any other military family, obviously, there are millions of American families that have gone through this, but I know what it’s like to watch my brother deploy and think they’re going to die and not come back, I know what that feels like and the Trumps do not.’
