Two former friends of Sen. John McCain say his daughter Meghan McCain's pointed criticism of President Donald Trump in her speech at the Arizona Republican's memorial service on Saturday reflected the character of her late father.
"She is her father's daughter," South Carolina GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union." "If you say something bad about her dad, you will know it, whether you're the janitor or the President of the United States. She is grieving for the father she adored. I think most Americans understand that."
Former independent Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman, who joined the program with Graham, said he was a "proud uncle" watching McCain's speech at the memorial service.
"She was direct ... the way John was," Lieberman said.
In her remarks on Saturday, McCain contrasted her father's legacy with Trump's rhetoric, saying, "The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again, because America was always great."(continued)

is this piece of garbage already buried or are they still displaying him like a hanging piece of leg at the grocery store?
What a horrible thing to say.
The REAL Meghan McCain exposed herself in her speech. She is EXACTLY like her father...embittered and hateful.
Linsey’s running out of allies. He’s got to come out on the correct side on this. It’s a lot of talk
Linseys an Idiot with capital “I”. imho
Trump lives, rent free, inside all their heads.
All this pomp and circumstance, which was supposed to be “honoring” McCain, had but one theme...”hate Trump”. A synopsis of the week-long event carried very little praise of McCain, except for one, common, theme...he hated Trump.
His pettiness complete erased any semblance of being a “hero”, which ironically, is what McCain was angry about as Trump denounced him as such.
I certainly hope no one uses my funeral as a pulpit to bash their enemies.
In other words, her dad was a flaming @sshole and she is a fat raging b*tch. Thanks for explaining this, Linda.
Actually, I had expect it to be Cindy McCain, not Meghan, as the family member going over the top at the funeral.
Cindy must be satisfied with getting her revenge behind the scenes, such as updating the “Do Not DARE Invite to the funeral” List, or
expecting to be given her late husband’s Senate seat, just because.
Question: Why is ‘Strawberries’ one of the Key Words for this post? Just curious. Did John McCain know Former Mets right fielder Daryl Strawberry?
Grief subordinated to unrelenting hatred. Couldn’t pretend even long enough to get through the funeral. Trump Derangement Syndrome.
The apple never falls far from the tree.
Now we know why she left “Out Numbered” on FOX for “The View.” She is a leftist moderate at heart like her Daddy!
Caine Mutiny, the movie.
'What made Saturdays shocking display all the more crass was that Trumps daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared were invited to the funeral and were forced to sit there and be humiliated, which might have been the plan.'
They put a black ribbon in her hair.
They thought the large pink bow was too obvious.
Only things missing from the eulogy were “Blanky” and “Mr. Teddykins”.
