There is a real feud going on between Donald Trump and Meghan McCain and many have rushed to social media to pick sides.
At Sen. John McCain’s funeral, his daughter and co-host of The View took a direct jab at Trump by using his famous Make America Great Again slogan.
Meghan said the following: “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,” The View co-host said, adding, “The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again, because America was always great.”
In a matter of hours, the Republican rushed to Twitter and hit back with the slogan written in all caps.
MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

It has been claimed via several reports that Melania Trump is frustrated by her husband’s pettiness and eagerness to fight and belittle people.
The first lady is said to be humiliated by the president’s behavior towards the late senator from Arizona and his family.
One insider told Hollywood Life: “Donald’s pettiness and ability to hold a grudge are probably the characteristics Melania dislikes the most about him. Donald thinks it makes him appear strong when he never wavers and always holds firm in his opinion, but she believes the exact opposite and thinks the way he handled the John McCain situation is the perfect example.”

The source continued: “Melania thinks that Donald should have swallowed his pride and acted in a much more gracious manner following John’s death, but that’s just not something Donald will ever do. It’s funny because what he sees as being strong, she sees as being petty and insecure. Melania believes Donald would be perceived in a much better light if he was willing to admit to his mistakes occasionally. She thinks he handled the McCain situation appallingly, and his reaction showed him to be petty and insecure.”
You can keep the America of McCain… I prefer the Trump one.

After news broke about McCain’s death in late August, Trump tweeted this brief message from his account, “My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of Senator John McCain. Our hearts and prayers are with you!”
Some Americans did not appreciate the short note.
