Losing a beloved family member is hard, and it doesn’t get easier when the president of the United States decides to randomly throw his name into conversations with the public about the list of people he hates the most. From the moment Trump said that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) wasn’t a war hero and that he only “likes” people who weren’t captured, it was obvious that the two would clash. But Trump’s actions after Sen. McCain passed away left the country, and especially Arizona, disgusted.
Congratulations to my dear friend and President-elect @JoeBiden Vice-President-elect @KamalaHarris. Its time to move beyond politics and toward building a stronger america. I know Joe will unify the country toward a better future.

Only a very personal note – I am relieved and look forward to having a president who respects POW’s who have been captured…

Cindy McCain, the widow of Sen. McCain, actively worked to help get Democratic candidate Joe Biden elected despite the fact that she and her late husband are Republicans. She appeared in campaign ads, gave a speech at the DNC, and has called Biden a close friend. Cindy McCain told the story of two senators on opposite sides of the aisle who formed a deep friendship that lasted throughout McCain’s life.
Meghan McCain, one of the co-hosts of The View, is a staunch Republican with very conservative ideas, but the Republican president’s harsh words about her father, even after he had passed away, contributed to her dislike of Donald Trump.
The two women celebrated the end of the Trump presidency and the beginning of a presidency that can be celebrated by all Americans, regardless of party affiliation.
Twitter celebrated right along with them, thanking Cindy McCain for her efforts and letting Meghan McCain know how very much her father was admired. Read some of their comments below:
