Meghan McCain provokes eyerolls when she claims seeing riot would have killed her father
Really? We have seen President-elect Joe Biden use his departed son as political fodder over and over again. Now, we get to see Meghan McCain stand on her father’s grave and use the death of John McCain as a talking point to slam President Trump. She’s claiming that watching the Capitol Hill riot unfold “would have killed him.” Again.
McCain, 36, is calling for top Republicans to invoke the 25th Amendment against the president. It is no secret there is no love lost between the McCains and President Trump. John McCain and Trump had open hostility towards one another. That carried on after his death and Trump was not invited to the funeral. Since then, Meghan has shredded the president at every available opportunity on The View.
She appeared on Watch What Happens Live Monday with host Andy Cohen. She really went to town explaining how her father, a former presidential candidate and Senator for Arizona, would have died watching the alleged attempted coup unfold.
“If he were alive, this would have killed him,” Meghan told Cohen. “I think it actually would’ve killed him.” That’s a macabre prediction, to say the least.
John McCain passed away at the age of 81 in 2018 after stopping treatment for stage-four brain cancer.
“I was so emotional watching it, I was absolutely apoplectic,” Meghan stammered. “I was hysterically crying for almost a full 24 hours. I was crying before I went on The View to talk about it.” She couldn’t wait to invoke her father in all of this.
Earlier via Twitter, Meghan had also said: “These are domestic terrorists who attacked our own republic. They should be treated the same way we treat Al-Qaeda.”

Meghan explained that she was still having trouble expressing her emotions.
“I can’t even express — I’m still sort of processing feelings, as I think all Americans are. What has been done, I don’t think can be undone for generations,” she opined, adding that she is praying for “healing.”
That sounds a lot like every Democrat in D.C. these days. Rinse, repeat, spout propaganda.
The day after the violent incident on Capitol Hill, Meghan condemned the president on The View, calling it “one of the great national tragedies of my lifetime” and “one of America’s darkest days.” Nice hyperbole there.
“I have been absolutely despondent watching this. I’m here in D.C. as everyone knows. My sister-in-law works on Capitol Hill and the office door where she works, the window, was busted out,” she said.
“I think this is the time to take a very hard look at where we are as a country and take a very hard look at where we are with President Trump. The bedrock of our democracy and the bedrock of who we are as Americans is the peaceful transition of power. And he is clearly a president who has turned into a mad king,” intoned Meghan.
The MAGA terrorists should be prosecuted like any other terrorists who have attacked our homeland and be given the same severity of consequences. They should also be tried for treason. No mercy.

Then she proceeded to call upon “all Republicans and conservatives who still have clout” to invoke the 25th Amendment. Which will never happen but makes for good liberal PR.
House Democrats formally introduced one article of impeachment against Trump on Monday, charging him with “incitement of insurrection” following the alleged attempted coup on the Capitol by a mob of his supporters.
A vote is expected on the resolution later this week. However, there is not enough time before Inauguration Day to actually impeach Trump and you cannot impeach a citizen. This is political theater. Pelosi has already said she wants to use the impeachment to keep Trump from running in 2024. Good luck with that.
Meghan McCain has just returned to The View after a difficult pregnancy. She was absent for three months. She evidently wanted an explosive return and used her dear departed father for her reentry. Like father, like daughter.
“So it’s been such a rough reentry back into The View,” McCain said.
“I had a really hard time getting back to work,” she added. “I thought I would be back by the election. So just like that process of getting back was a lot and then this week back, with just the show the way it is and obviously, everything going on in the country and the horrible, horrific attack on our Capitol, it’s just been a lot.”
“And I will say, I missed everyone,” she continued. “Even if some people didn’t miss me, I missed the show. We’re a family. All these women were at my dad’s funeral. We’ve been through a lot of sh*t together and I miss being on the show and I hope that we can all be examples, myself included, for where the country should go forward.”
“Because whether we like it or not, I’m not going anywhere on the show, Joy is not going anywhere on the show,” McCain vowed. “We all have to live and coexist together just like Americans right now.”
McCain’s close friend S.E. Cupp enthusiastically joined in with Meghan on invoking the 25th Amendment.
Upon returning, Joy Behar said she was not glad to see McCain. But honestly, they were made for each other.
