Meghan McCain’s co-host on ABC’s “The View” on Thursday called President Donald Trump a “pathological liar” and criticized GOP lawmakers who have yet to condemn his attacks on McCain’s father, the late Sen. John McCain.
“The reason they are not speaking is because they are spineless, and they are afraid of [Trump],” Ana Navarro said Thursday during the show’s opening segment. “Because they think he is like Lord Voldemort and if they mention his name, he will come down and strike them dead politically.”
Navarro made her comments after producers played a clip of the president saying, “I gave him the kind of funeral that he wanted. I didn’t get a thank you, but that’s OK.”
Navarro responded: “First of all, John McCain didn’t get the funeral that he wanted. He got the funeral that he deserved. He got the funeral that he earned through more than 60 years of service and sacrifice and pain for this country, something that Donald Trump would know nothing about because for more than 70 years it’s been all about Trump for him.”
Trump and McCain’s feud goes back to the 2016 presidential election, but the president has stepped up his attacks on the former Arizona lawmaker over the last week.
Few Republican lawmakers have condemned the president, though Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, did urge Trump to stop talking about McCain.
“There is just no reason to be talking about Sen. McCain after he has passed. He is not your political enemy Mr. President,” he said.
