What’s the difference between a menacing shark and the late Sen. John McCain’s daughter Meghan? Nothing, or so the folks at the New York Post seem to believe.
This much was made clear by the shocking photo the editors at the paper placed on the cover of the Sunday edition. The cover specifically included a photo of Meghan at her father’s funeral, plus the words “The Meg: Meghan McCain uses dad’s funeral to bite Trump.”
While “The Meg” might seem like nothing but a quickly thought up nickname, many suspect it was actually a reference to the Megalodon — an extinct species of shark regarded as one of the largest sharks to ever exist — featured in the recently released film “The Meg.”
During her father’s funeral Saturday, the 33-year-old conservative political commentator took a deep “bite” out of Trump, ripping into him for his allegedly “cheap rhetoric.”
“We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness. The real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly, nor the opportunistic appropriation of those who lived lives of comfort and privilege,” she had said, clearly referencing Trump, aka her and her father’s arch-nemesis.
Many felt that Meghan using her father’s funeral to trash the sitting president was a trashy move. It seemed like “cheap rhetoric,” ironically enough. The New York Post’s blunt cover picture suggests its editors agree. They were not alone.
This new trend of using funerals and eulogies to deliver political messages is really quite disgusting.
Sympathy from death as means to sway public opinion is next level corrupt.
Everyone involved should be ashamed of themselves.

My father was neither famous, nor did he have enemies. But when he died, my only concern was that he ascend to heaven surrounded by love and dignity. Meghan McCain’s eulogy weaponized her own love, and trivialized her father. It was an embarrassment.

At most funerals I’ve attended, it’s God’s love that fills the room, not hate and animus for a person who is not even in attendance.

Another grotesque stunt by the D.C. elites–bashing President Trump at another funeral.
And they wonder why Americans have contempt for them… #McCainMemorial

I lost a woman I loved more than almost anyone this year. It never once dawned on me to eulogize her by throwing in some digs at people she or I may have disliked. I was too busy celebrating and honoring her and feeling sad to even allow adversarial thoughts or speech to enter.

Love him or hate him, he’s still their obsession. They can’t do anything without talking about him. Must suck to be that deranged and pathetic. #MAGA

Like one liberal columnist pointed out, McCain’s funeral quickly devolved into “the biggest resistance meeting yet,” with Meghan leading almost everyone present (save for the president’s daughter) into using the event to take direct or indirect potshots at the president.
In return the Murdoch-owned Post apparently decided to take a potshot at Meghan. All is fair in love and war, isn’t it? And the never-ending beef between Trump and the McCain family is indeed a war.
Though truth be told, the war officially involves more than just Trump. It also involves the 60+ million Americans who voted for him in the 2016 election and who don’t appreciate seeing him be continually smeared by the likes of Meghan McCain and her highfalutin friends.
