Orrock told CNN Monday that she didn’t want McCain to die, but that she supported the “sentiments” of the article.
The Hill adds:
In the piece, published on Medium, writer Caitlin Johnstone calls McCain a “murderous warmongering neocon” and an “evil man.”
She wrote that McCain “can die a proud, happy man. And he should. Like, yesterday.”
Meghan McCain, the senator’s daughter, calling Orrock “a godless, horrible monster.”
