Trump informs Meghan McCain he’s more loved than her ‘hated’ late father, after her taunting tweet

President Donald Trump offered a response Sunday to Meghan McCain, who took a swipe at him for criticizing the late Sen. John McCain, telling the president “no one will ever love you the way they loved my father.”

A response that came with no words, but the message was clear.

Trump retweeted a tweet from a supporter that proclaimed: “Millions of Americans truly LOVE President Trump, not McCain. I’m one!”

Social media user Lori Hendry also stated the very reasons the president listed as to why so many took issue with McCain: His ties to the discredited Russian dossier and his vote against repealing Obamacare.

The saga began when former independent counsel Ken Starr appeared on “Fox & Friends” to comment on reports that an associate of McCain’s leaked the infamous Steele dossier to a number of media outlets.

Starr said that while McCain is an “American hero,” if the reports are true, it would be “unfortunately a very dark stain” on the Arizona Republican’s legacy.

Responding to the observation, Trump tweeted that McCain “had far worse “stains” than this, including thumbs down on repeal and replace after years of campaigning to repeal and replace!”

And this brought McCain’s daughter into the mix, with Meghan blasting the president.

“No one will ever love you the way they loved my father. I wish I had been given more Saturday’s with him,” McCain tweeted. “Maybe spend yours with your family instead of on twitter obsessing over mine?”

The deceased senator also provided the FBI with the dossier funded by the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, which alleges the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government to defeat Clinton in 2016.

In his memoirs, McCain said that he “did what duty demanded I do” in passing the dossier to the FBI.

“I discharged that obligation, and I would do it again. Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell,” he wrote, according to The Hill.

Citing this reality, the president tweeting Sunday morning “last in his class” McCain was working with Democrats, but they “failed” in their efforts to stop him from being elected.

For the record, McCain was not the very last in his class at the Naval Academy, there were five plebes below him — he graduated in June 1958, ranked 894th out of 899.

The tweet provoked a response from Meghan, but she would soon delete her tweet. It read: “My father lives rent-free in your head.”

But then, she is no fan of the president’s, even taking a swipe at him while delivering her father’s eulogy, declaring: “The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great.”

A quick scan of the reactions to the Lori Hendry tweet shows that she is not alone in her observation — here’s a sampling of those responses from Twitter:
