McCain-Trump: The New Hatfield-McCoy?

Written By BlabberBuzz | Tuesday, 26 October 2021 16:45

On Fox News Channel's "MediaBuzz", Meghan McCain announced that her family and the Trump family were in a "blood feud."

When asked about former President Donald Trump's announcement calling the former "View" co-host a "bully" and a "lowlife," McCain stated, "My first reaction is thanks for the publicity."

She went on, "He really has a way of helping people get publicity for their books. I also think this is part of what my memoir is about. It's about being a bad Republican at 'The View,' when just being a Republican in general means you're the villain at 'The View,' and then it means me being a bad Republican in the Republican Party right now because I'm not a Trump supporter. My family and him have a blood feud at this point. It's about what conservatism looks like post-Trump, which I think is something Republicans are really going to have to take a hard look at one way or another, even if he ends up running in 2024."

Host Howard Kurtz asked, "Does it sting at all? I mean, it's a former president, or have you become accustomed to it?"

She went on, "I'm used to it. It used to hurt when it was against my dad. I don't like when it's against Colin Powell, people that I respect. For me, no."

Trump, in a statement issued on Friday, mocked McCain for saying she left ABC's daytime talk program.

"The View" due to a culture of bullying and toxicity.

"Isn't it funny that Meghan McCain, who has always been a bully and basically a lowlife, is now complaining that it was she who was bullied by the Slobs and Radical Left maniacs of 'The View,'" Trump announced.

McCain, the daughter of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), was the lone conservative throughout her time on the show and frequently sparred with her co-hosts during spats that at times turned personal. She was frequently critical of Trump, who mocked her father throughout the final years of his life.

In his statement on Friday, Trump further attacked the late senator, who voted against the GOP attempt to repeal ObamaCare.

"At the request of many of her representatives, I made it possible for her father to have the world take a look at the funeral, designed and orchestrated by him, even though I was never, to put it mildly, a fan. In his own special way, he was a RINO's RINO," Trump said.
