Republican Senator to Publicly Condemn Trump Today, Saying 'the Country Deserves Better'

The latest proof Trump’s hateful words matter

The latest proof Trump’s hateful words matter

The late senator's widow, Cindy McCain, publicized hateful messages she's been receiving since Trump's tweets, and daughter Meghan McCain has continued to respond to the President online and on ABC's "The View", where she's a co-host.

The women of The View are not the only ones to take issue with Trump's comments on the late politician, as GOP Sen.

"I will say attacking someone who isn't here is a freaky low", she added.

After touting his administration's progress in combating the Islamic State in Syria and the U.S.'s recent economic successes, Trump tore into McCain's legacy and in an unusual remark, took credit for the late senator's state funeral in Washington late previous year.

Trump was not invited to McCain's funeral previous year, which featured speeches by former presidents, including George W Bush and Barack Obama.

Meghan McCain lashed out Wednesday at President Donald Trump, slamming his latest attacks on her late father, the late Sen.

Some of the president's cult members, amongst them certain Breitbart staffers, applauded him for berating a soldier who died half a year ago.

Amid the controversy, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., announced Wednesday that he intends to introduce legislation to rename one of the Senate office buildings after the late Arizona senator.

Trump had tweeted furiously this weekend quoting former independent counsel Ken Starr regarding McCain's involvement in pushing the discredited Steele dossier.

Mike Trout Signs Record Deal with Anaheim Angels
Haper's deal, signed this month with the Phillies, will pay him $330 million over 13 years - an annual salary of $25.38 million. As Trout's contract was due to expire after the upcoming season, the Los Angeles club made him an offer too good to turn down.

Mr Trump has regularly clashed with McCain going back to his presidential campaign. He also went after McCain for his ObamaCare vote.

Comments like Wednesday's and those that have preceded it were too much for Sen.

Trump has traveled to Hanoi twice as President but has yet to visit the infamous prison, which is now a museum that features photographs of McCain while he was held in captivity.

"It's deplorable what he said", Isakson said, according to CNN.

He also blamed McCain for wars in the Middle East. "I'm going to try to continue to help the president".

John McCain (R-AZ), despite the fact that he has been dead for seven months.

"What was shocking to me is there was a time in this country when the families of politicians were off limits and there was a time in this country where certainly you wouldn't attack them publicly and you wouldn't attack them on the internet", said Hostin. "Everyone should give him and his family the respect, admiration, and peace they deserve".

"I can't understand why the President would, once again, disparage a man as exemplary as my friend John McCain: heroic, courageous, patriotic, honorable, self-effacing, self-sacrificing, empathetic, and driven by duty to family, country, and God", Romney wrote on Twitter.

At a speech in Ohio, Trump also faulted McCain for not contacting him after receiving the dossier, which was funded by the Clinton campaign and DNC. John McCain, but the Georgia Republican reiterated Wednesday that he will not be joining the effort to put McCain's name on the office building now named for a favorite son of his home state.
