Meghan McCain did not hold back in her eulogy for her father's, Senator John McCain, memorial service. It was clear without even calling the President's name, the disdain she had for the Commander in Chief. She said it with the warranted degree of anger.
Meghan McCain scorches President Trump in the eulogy to her dad
Meghan McCain was upset with President Trump, and the words within her eulogy made it clear she wanted it known.
Meghan first dissed the president for his rhetoric even not having served the country nor suffered in moving the country forward.
"John Sidney McCain III was many things," Meghan McCain said. "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 live lives of comfort and privilege while he suffered and served."
She then pointed out why some like the President resented John McCain.
"He was a great fire who burned bright," Meghan continued. "A few have resented that fire for that light it cast upon them. For the truth, it revealed about their character. But my father never cared what they thought."
Meghan then lashed out at the president's core message by making it clear that there was no need to reshape America in Trump's false greatness.
"The America of John McCain is generous and welcoming and bold," Meghan said with anger erupting from her face. "She is resourceful and confident and secure. She meets her responsibilities. She speaks quietly because she is strong. America does not boast because she has no need to. The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great."
Meghan McCain was very effective without once mentioning the President by name.
