While there may be no love lost between the late Senator John McCain, and the President Trump, that does not mean that McCain’s family want his words used by Trump’s Democratic presidential opponents.

The daughter of the late Arizona senator has asked Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s to “leave my father’s legacy and memory out of presidential politics.” That request came in a tweet in response to Klobuchar’s claim that the late Sen. John McCain “kept reciting to me names of dictators” during President Trump’s inaugural address.

Meghan McCain took to Twitter to criticize Klobuchar, D-Minn., a 2020 presidential candidate, for invoking her father’s name during a campaign event.

“On behalf of the entire McCain family, [Amy Klobuchar], please be respectful to all of us and leave my father’s legacy and memory out of presidential politics,” McCain, a co-host on “The View,” wrote.

At an event in Iowa over the long Memorial Day Weekend, Klobuchar claimed Sen. 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 [Trump] more than any of us did,” Klobuchar said in her speech, as has been reported.

Klobuchar called Trump’s inauguration “dark” and claimed “The arc that we are on, this arc of justice, started the day after that dark inauguration,” Klobuchar said. “The day when 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.”

Trump and McCain Had a Contentious History

Trump and the Arizona senator had a tense relationship, with then-candidate Trump claiming at a 2015 event that the Vietnam War veteran “was a not a war hero because he was captured.”

After Trump held a joint news conference in 2018 with Russian President Vladimir Putin, McCain responded in a statement claiming “the damage inflicted by President Trump’s naiveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate.”

Tim Hogan, a spokesman for Amy for America responded to the controversy, saying in a statement that Klobuchar had a “long-term friendship” with McCain and has defended him against Trump’s criticisms.

“She has deep respect for his family. While she was simply sharing a memory, she continues to believe that the best stories about Senator McCain are not about the views he had about President Trump: they are about McCain’s own valor and heroism,” Hogan said.

  1. Megan Mc Cain can’t have everything her way its time for her to grow up

  2. Amy Klobdouchar doesn’t respect the memory of the dead, what makes you think that she will ever respect the American people. As her name calls it, that’s what she is – a douchbag!

  3. McCain was a jealous childish POS ‘RINO’; progressive feckless ‘666PRICKS666’ like him are why we are where we are today.

  4. Did John McCain name himself in that list of traitors. Not only was he a traitor to the Republican party, he was a traitor to this country also because he was aware of the fake Dossier and never made it known. I am a veteran and I didnt have any respect for McCain. And his whining sniveling brat daughter, what a drama queen.

  5. FOR fifty [50] years RINO’s allowed liberals to establish the ‘deep state’ ; NO ONE fought for or represented [we the people] until TRUMP.

  6. It seems that the more Meghan talks the more self-impugned she is. The more she brings up her father’s name the more impugned he is.

  7. Amy Klobuchar, having a long term relationship with John McCain is not a benefit! His words of hate and the destruction that he did to this country, by his involvement in the dossier scandal, demonstrate what this country needs to get away from. The stories that you hear from the men who served with McCain tell a story of a rather reckless person. The way that he treated Sarah Palin, his choice for running mate, is disgraceful!

  8. Amy Kokblocker & Meghan McCunt 2 trashy bitches who both deserve Gang Rape & beheading.

  9. You slimy, spineless creeps can go back to help where you came from. Oh and take tRump the whiny baby with you. Repugnant are stupid, jealous idiots who worship an adulterer who is evil but from the words I read? You morons are carbon copies of the evil further. Meanwhile, take a long walk off a short pier as your ravings are just stupid. Just considering the sources.

  10. I respected McCain, still do, but his view was not always right. He was human and voted wrong at times, and even his perspective was flawed at times……like EVERY member of Congress and of Earth!! And frankly, Klobachar actually made McCain look petty and childish mimicking a newly sworn in President of the U. S. in that manner of sarcasm during his speech, IF what Amy K. says was true. She actually should not have done that to McCain’s memory publicly.

  11. How true, David.
    Megan McCain should realize that her father became a public figure, which he chose himself to do, once he entered politics. John MCCain was a war hero to Americans and his story well known by those in the country. Understandably, his daughter adores her father and the life that he lived.
    However, being a public person and a politcian, Megan has to expect to hear what the public has to say about him and ignore what she doesn’ like and be quiet about it all.
    She does a disservice to her father’s memory by expressing her anger whenever she hears something negative about him. If she cannot do that she should resign from public exposure.

  13. He was known as ‘Songbird’ by other captives. How many sailors were killed on the deck of the ship when he was trying to hit start his plane & show-off. This was covered-up by his relatives. Lastly, he left his dying wife for another woman. Hero, I think not!!!

  16. Thanks alot : ) for your post. I would really like to comment that the cost of car insurance differs from one insurance policy to another, given that there are so many different issues which give rise to the overall cost. For instance, the make and model of the car or truck will have a massive bearing on the charge. A reliable aged family car or truck will have an inexpensive premium than a flashy expensive car.
