It looks like the current president is not about to just ignore the criticism even though it comes from a pained, mourning daughter. Donald Trump decided to shoot back at Meghan McCain after she threw shade at him and his administration during Sen. John McCain’s funeral.
As you can imagine, social media is not a fan of the Donald’s petty clap back.
‘We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness, the real thing, not the cheap rhetoric from men who’ll never come near the sacrifice he made so willingly, nor the opportunistic appropriation of those who live in comfort and privilege while he suffered and served. The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again, because America was always great,’ The View co-host said during her touching eulogy on September 1.
The woman’s words were met with applause from the crowd gathered to honor the late Senator, including three former presidents in attendance, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
That being said, Trump obviously did not appreciate the diss.
Even though he wasn’t invited to the service, the president found out about what was said and took to Twitter to apparently fire back.
‘MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!’ he simply tweeted.
Users of the platform were quick to criticize his pettiness.
‘@realDonaldTrump, you small and petty person. Is this your response to the grieving Meghan McCain? America is and has been always great. Not perfect, but great. When for you wasn’t it great? I’m concerned you will make it less great with tweets like this,’ a user by the name of Fred Guttenberg tweeted.
Some also mocked the president by making reference to a very controversial statement from 2015.
At the time, he attacked McCain saying: ‘He’s not a war hero. He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.’
That being said, one person responded to Trump’s not so subtle diss with one just as obvious: ‘I like presidents who don’t get barred from weddings and funerals.’
