Cindy and Meghan McCain spoke out Wednesday against President Donald Trump’s remarks at the Conservative Political Action Conference last week, calling his remarks about Sen. John McCain “incredibly hurtful.”
Speaking at CPAC, Trump referenced the Arizona Republican’s July vote against a “skinny repeal” of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
“One person walked into a room when he was supposed to go this way, and he said he was going this way, and he walked in and he went this way, and everyone said, ‘What happened, what was that all about?’ Boy oh boy, who was that, I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t want to be controversial, so I won’t use his name, OK?” Trump said during a wide-ranging remarks Friday, prompting boos from a fired-up crowd.
During a joint appearance with her mother on ABC’s “The View,” Meghan McCain said the moment made her feel “naïve” following a conversation she had with the President last fall.
