Late Senator John McCain's daughter Meghan McCain slammed President Donald Trump's latest tweetstorm Monday morning, saying the commander-in-chief "will never be a great man". John McCain, against disparaging comments from President Donald Trump. McCain spent more than five years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam. The commander-in-chief quoted former U.S. Solicitor General Ken Starr, 72, in his tweet, and insisted Meghan's dad, who served as the U.S. Senator for Arizona from 1987 until his death from cancer in August 2018, had several "stains" in his career.
"It's kind of a pathetic statement on his part because when John McCain was getting the silver star, Trump was at his doctor's trying to get out of the draft with these alleged bone spurs ..." "He had far worse 'stains" than this, including thumbs down on repeal and replace [on Obamacare] after years of campaigning to repeal and replace!"
"I like the president, I want to help him, I hope he's successful, he's been a friend to me", Graham said in June 2018.

Ken and Donald's words about John was in response to news that linked John to the dossier, which was compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, and claimed there was collusion between Donald's presidential campaign and Russian Federation. "I can't imagine having a father who does this over the weekends", she said.
