Meghan McCain Rips Trump’s ‘Cheap Rhetoric’ And ‘Privilege’ In Father’s Eulogy: ‘America Was Always Great’





Meghan McCain appeared to take a personal swipe at President Trump’s lack of service during the Vietnam War after he publicly attacked her father Sen. John McCain during the 2016 presidential campaign, denouncing “cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly, nor the opportunistic appropriation of those who lived lives of comfort and privilege.”

In her eulogy at the National Cathedral on Saturday, McCain, 33, fought back tears as she recounted her father’s wartime sacrifice in Vietnam.

“He was a great man,” McCain told the audience. “We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness.”

“The real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly, nor the opportunistic appropriation of those who lived lives of comfort and privilege,” she added.

McCain also took a shot at Trump’s signature 2016 campaign slogan.

“The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great,” she said to applause.




“John McCain was not defined by prison, by the Navy, by the Senate, by the Republican Party, or by any single one of the deeds in his absolutely extraordinary life,” she told the audience.

“John McCain was defined by love,” McCain added.
