Meghan McCain responded to Catanese’s tweet about her father, Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.), who is currently undergoing treatment for a brain tumor.
“I wouldn’t wish seeing this about your own father on my worst enemy,” she said. “May God help these people who inflict such cruelty in the world.”

During the fiery rally in Phoenix on Tuesday night, President Donald Trump also discussed his party’s failed attempts to repeal and replace Obamacare.
Defying the wishes of national Republicans, Trump criticized Arizona’s two Republican senators, McCain and Jeff Flake. He said he “will not mention any names,” but added that Republicans were “one vote” short on a Republican bill to overhaul parts of Obamacare.
McCain was one of three GOP senators who voted against the bill. Trump fumed following the loss, tweeting that the three Republicans let the American people down.
