Cindy and Meghan McCain shaded conservative commentator Michelle Malkin after she rebuked anti-Trump Republicans John McCain, Paul Ryan, and the Bush family during a fiery speech at the 2019 CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) conference.
Malkin: RINOs and the Left Are Destroying USA
Malkin blamed weak Republicans for allowing Democrats to promote lawlessness, open borders, and a massive spike in illegal immigration:
“It’s the GOP sell-outs — not just the radical, open-borders left — that is in bed with immigration saboteurs.
Like the ones who hijacked the Tea Party movement to shill for amnesty. Those are the real grifters cashing in at the expense of their base and at the expense of our country.
Sanctuary cities have metastasized and both parties are to blame! And yes, I’m looking at you, retired Paul Ryan. And yes, I’m looking at you, Mitch McConnell.
Yes, I’m looking at you, Bush family. And yes, I’m looking at you, the ghost of John McCain.”
Cindy McCain Claps Back on Twitter
The late senator’s widow, Cindy McCain, reacted by tweeting directly to Michelle Malkin: “You never knew Senator John McCain. You should be so lucky.”

Malkin — who never backs down from critics — fired back by calling the McCains an “open-borders family.”

‘Virtue Signaler Abetting Our Destruction’
John McCain’s daughter, Meghan McCain, did not respond directly to Malkin’s rebuke of her father.
But she retweeted a post by CNN’s S.E. Cupp, who snipped: “CPAC was once a place to exchange conservative ideas. Now it’s just a place for agitprop and mean-spirited garbage.”
Malkin snarked back: “Useless virtue signaler abetting our destruction said what?”

As BizPac Review reported, John McCain spent the last few years of his life trashing President Donald Trump both in the United States and abroad.
In fact, McCain’s Trump Derangement Syndrome was so pathological that he prepared a deathbed statement attacking Trump. Talk about living rent-free in someone’s head.
In his parting shots, McCain blasted nationalism (i.e., pride in the United States) and dismissed the border wall, which experts agree is needed to stem the tsunami of illegal immigration, human trafficking, and the alarming opioid epidemic that is roiling America.

Meghan McCain Used Dad’s Week-Long, Taxpayer-Funded Funeral to Slam Trump
For decades, the mainstream media attacked John McCain as a racist, sexist white supremacist. But the media spent an entire week after McCain died in August 2018 lionizing him so they could weaponize his death to attack President Trump.
McCain became a liberal hero starting in 2015, by repeatedly obstructing and slamming the leader of his political party and a sitting United States president.
McCain’s most dubious political accomplishment was turning over the discredited “Steele Dossier” to former Obama FBI director James Comey in January 2017. That dossier was then used to kickstart the fruitless Russia collusion investigation.
That Russia collusion hoax has cost American taxpayers millions of dollars and obstructed a sitting president. And here’s the kicker: It has yielded no evidence of collusion after more than two years.
Meghan McCain continued the McCain family tradition of using public forums to blast Trump by opportunistically using her dad’s funeral to take cheapshots at POTUS.

McCains Got Hefty Taxpayer-Funded ‘Death Gratuity’
A $174,000 “death gratuity” was paid to Senator McCain’s super-rich family (courtesy of US taxpayers), in keeping with a longstanding tradition of giving a year’s salary to a departed lawmaker’s next of kin.
The $174,000 gratuity was tacked on to the federal appropriations bill for taxpayers to bankroll. While the practice is nothing new, it raised eyebrows because John McCain’s widow, Cindy McCain, is a wealthy heiress whose net worth reportedly tops $100 million.
Cindy inherited the chairmanship and majority control of Hensley & Co., one of the largest Anheuser-Busch beer distributors in the United States, upon her dad’s death in 2000.
