The New York Post mocked Meghan McCain as The Meg on its Sunday cover after she used the opportunity of her fathers funeral to attack President Trump. The Meg is a reference to a plus-sized shark in the late-summer hit movie The Meg, starring Jason Staham.
The New York Post cover is just one part of a brewing backlash against McCain and the overall funeral service for Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), which turned into an unseemly partisan rally Saturday with speakers like former Presidents Barack Obama and even George W. Bush trashing President Trump, who Sen. McCain refused to invite to his own funeral.
Also not invited was former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin, John McCains unfailingly loyal 2008 vice presidential running mate.
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. The McCains are infamous for holding petty grudges.
In an obvious shot at Trump, Meghan McCain used her eulogy to describe the death of her father as 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 while he suffered and served.
For good measure, she added, The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great.
Obama was also not subtle. He ripped into those who traffic in bombast and insult and phony controversies and manufactured outrage.

Once again, Trump’s enemies overplay their hand.
I prefer MAGA to mega.
So you can childishly bash a President at a funeral for a cancer victim . .
But you can’t write an editorial bashing illegal immigration and the people behind it for a murder victim?
Makes perfect sense huh?
Hard to believe Meghan is so chummy with Obama after he publicly humiliated McCain at every opportunity following the 2008 election...
Looks like the Meg is sporting a mega ass.
I just lost all respect for Ivanka & Jared. I wasn't aware that they had been invited and actually attended.
Dems/Never-Trumpers and Dems
It’s pathological. They can’t help themselves. So let’s keep them from helping themselves to the perks of elected office. Vote Trumpist Republican, not Rino or Dem in 2018.
I think now McCain fed Obama the lines to say about him.
“Meagain how did you feel today after those terrible things than *&^% Trump said?”
The Meg? Megalodon?
Easier to just call her ‘Bushel Breasts’.
Mccains funeral (along with Aretha Franklins) has been like the wellstone memorial show, only worse.
I know at my funeral I hope they don’t use my body as a prop for bashing another person. But then I’m not a vindictive POS like McCain.
Sometimes cancer’s good works are underestimated.
Meg is going to find out very quickly that when this is over, she’s going to be just another “vile Republican” to liberals.
not one tear
Meg needs to cut back on the mac and cheese
I could see how “The Meg” could easily get turned into “The NutMeg”. How unfortunate for Meghan if that were to happen.
