“The Twitterverse scratched its collective head on Memorial Day as Meghan McCain, the daughter of the late GOP Arizona Sen. John McCain, tweeted at Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar to keep her father’s name out of “presidential politics.”
“On behalf of the entire McCain family – @amyklobuchar please be respectful to all of us and leave my fathers legacy and memory out of presidential politics,” McCain, a co-host on the popular daytime television show “The View,” wrote.
McCain’s comments were in response to a story Klobuchar told at a 2020 presidential campaign event in Iowa over the weekend.
The Minnesota Democrat told the story of when the late McCain, whom she has called her “mentor,” began rattling off names to her of authoritarian leaders as they listened to President Donald Trump’s 2017 inauguration speech, suggesting that he was joining their ranks.”
