Yesterday was quite the day for taking hits at a sitting senator and wounded war veteran fighting brain cancer.

Between a guest on Fox Business repeating a malicious nickname from the 2008 primaries and a White House official dismissing McCain because “he’s dying anyway,” many wondered how McCain, and particularly his family, were feeling about it all.


And now we know as the senator’s daughter, Meghan, addressed both instances on Friday’s The View.

McCain first addressed Thomas McInerney’s use of “Songbird McCain” during a guest appearance on Fox Business saying in part,

“My father’s legacy is going to be talked about for hundreds and hundreds of years. These people? Nothing burgers.”

Later she addressed White House special assistant Kelly Sadler dismissing John McCain because he has brain cancer.


I don’t necessarily think Sadler should lose her job over her insensitive comment. However, Sadler’s boss has set the clear example that Sen. John McCain’s life, experiences, and unique point of view do not merit respect in his eyes and that’s why it was an acceptable comment in this White House. And that is shameful.
