The message said the sender was "glad" the late Arizona Republican is dead, and called him a "traitorous piece of warmongering s***." The message also attacked her daughter, Meghan McCain, criticizing her appearance and saying she hopes she "chokes to death."
Meghan McCain fired back at the President on Monday on ABC's "The View," the show she co-hosts, and said, "Listen, he spends his weekend obsessing over great men because he knows it, and I know it, and all of you know it: He will never be a great man."
"My father was his kryptonite in life, he was his kryptonite in death," Meghan McCain said, adding that she thought Trump's life was "pathetic."
John McCain died in 2018 after a battle with brain cancer. The President was not invited to his funeral.
When Trump was running for president in 2015, he said John McCain was "not a war hero. He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren't captured."
During the final days of the last presidential election, McCain withdrew his support for Trump when the "Access Hollywood" video was made public, showing the 2016 Republican nominee bragging about sexually assaulting women.
Their long-running feud escalated when the senator voted no on the "skinny repeal" of the Affordable Care Act in 2017, essentially killing Republican attempts to undo President Barack Obama's signature legislation.
