Meghan McCain, the daughter of the late Sen. John McCain of Arizona, shared on CBS’ “The Late Show” on Thursday that Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner were not welcomed and wished they had not attended her father’s funeral last September.

During her eulogy at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., McCain took a pointed shot at President Donald Trump, saying, “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.”

“Late Show” host Stephen Colbert asked McCain after quoting the line, “(D)id you know that Jared and Ivanka Trump would be attending when you wrote this?”

She answered that she did not, but added, “I thought that my family made it clear — or at least I had, that the Trumps were unwelcomed around me and my father, had sort of been very clear about the line between the McCains and the Trumps.

“So I was surprised when they were there and it made me uncomfortable, and I hope I made them uncomfortable, honestly, with everything.” “The View” co-host went on to explain that her father had “designed his funeral to be sort of a bridging for America and healing.”

McCain pointed to his request that two of his former rivals for the presidency — George W. Bush and Barack Obama — speak at the occasion. But she indicated the healing did not include the feud between the Trumps and the McCains.

“I really want it made very clear that the Trumps have beef with me then and in the words of (rapper) Cardi B, they’re gonna have beef with me forever and I’m not going to forget,” McCain said.

She concluded her thoughts on Ivanka Trump’s and Kushner’s attendance at the funeral saying, “I wish they had chosen not to out of respect, if nothing more, for me, but it’s their call, and I think America can judge on its own what they thought of that and what they thought of my eulogy.”

WATCH:

Colbert went on to question McCain about her decision to leave Fox News and join ABC’s “The View” in October 2017.

The commentator said she did so at her father’s urging, who at that point had been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.

The senator told her, “You can’t not work with Whoopi Goldberg.”

Meghan McCain related that Goldberg and her father were friends, and the Academy Award-winning actress has become like family.

Colbert wondered whether McCain still considered herself a Republican. She responded that she did though not of the “Trump populist” sort, but definitely a pro-life, pro-Second Amendment conservative.

McCain noted that she still largely votes Republican at the local elections in her home state of Arizona.

Colbert queried if there were any candidates she was excited about in 2020.

“I will be very interested to see if Joe Biden gets in the race, because I love him on a personal level,” McCain said.

She did not say whether she would vote for him, but did say she would have to leave being an on-air political commentator if he ran because she would not be able to say anything negative about the former vice president.

McCain elaborated that she and Biden have a “strange and intense bond,” due to his son and her father dying from the same type of cancer, glioblastoma.

The feud between the late Sen. McCain and Trump began in July 2015, shortly after the New York businessman announced his candidacy for the presidency.

McCain told The New Yorker at the time that Trump “fired up the crazies” when he held a rally in Phoenix.

“We’ll see how this plays out, but there is some anger in my state,” the Arizona lawmaker said of Trump’s prospects. “People who otherwise might be more centrist are angry about this border situation.”

Days later at a candidate forum in Iowa, Trump referenced McCain’s disparaging remarks about those who attended the rally. “They weren’t crazies,” the then-candidate said. “They were great American people. … He insulted me and he insulted everyone in that room.”

Trump noted that he supported McCain’s presidential bid raising a significant amount of money, but suggested instead of showing appreciation the senator was attacking him. Trump described him as a “loser,” to which moderator Frank Luntz interjected, saying to the contrary McCain was a “war hero.”

“He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured,” Trump replied.

McCain did not endorse Trump’s candidacy following his becoming the Republican nominee and cast the deciding vote against the so-called “skinny repeal” of Obamacare in July 2017.

The 45th president has made reference to that vote many times since, including to The New York Times earlier this week.

“By the way, (McCain) wrote a book and the book bombed,” Trump said of “The Restless Wave,” in which the late senator takes some final shots at the chief executive.

Meghan McCain tweeted in response to the article, “The president’s obsession with my father 6 months after his death is pathetic and telling – even at a time when he should be focusing on his message to the American public and the state of our union – the greatness of my father’s life and legacy haunts you.”

      Yes, Trump is a vile and low drama queen. He is disgusting and clearly unfit for office. The McCain family are decent, good people who know a lying con man when they see one. What a pig Trump is. What a vile, disgusting pig. All he does is eat cheeseburgers and shit them out.

        You are a fool. Go to any Veteran’s website and read how veterans hate him, or talk to a Vietnam vet. He was not either decent or good. He was no war hero either but a damn snitch. Why did he have his military records sealed? McCain was a lying con man who ran as a Republican but worked with the Obama administrations IRS to target conservatives. He did more harm to Vietnam vets than Hanoi Jane in their words. Research about the Keating 5. You pathetic idiots do not know crap about McCain and look like the pathetic imbeciles you are. Educate yourself and quit watching CNN and propaganda news.

Megyn , we all know what a great American hero your daddy was and as time goes by I hope you can come to terms with his death and alleviate some

    Chubby little Megan should keep her mouth shut and face the truth. Being no true hero John McCain suffered from Terminal Trump Derangement Syndrome as well as brain cancer… McCain was Absolutely Pathetic… Contemptible… he had total disregard for the very people he was supposed to represent… being filled with so much hate was not a good condition for the soul of someone facing death… McCain was a disgrace and an embarrassment to the state of Arizona & the nation… As a Soros stooge & a globalist he was and should always should be remembered as a poster child for “term limits”… STAND STRONG… DRAIN THE SWAMP MR.

      Such vile rhetoric coming from a vile and tiny man. You and Trump are alike in that regard: so small, so tiny. Were you too much of a coward to serve our nation too, just like little coward Donnie Bone Spurs? Did you serve? Did you fight in Vietnam or did you run to Canada? I guess you really hated McCain, so you must have voted for Obama instead of McCain and Pain. You are such a small and insignificant flea, and now that you are crawling toward death you decide to worship a con man. How pathetic.

    I understand she loved her father, but he wasn’t the hero that he pretended to be. Too many issues while he was in the military, graduated at the bottom of his class and was a huge Rino.
    Ivanka and Jared tried to be respectful and the bigger people by going to McCain’s funeral, but Meghan is as spiteful as her father. There was no bridge to healing by the McCains, just a much too long mourning period of a man who didn’t deserve it.

    • patroklos

      You think Dumbo Donnie graduated in the top of his class? Please, Miss Thing. He only got into Penn because his daddy paid for it. Same as evertything else in Death Pig Donnie’s life, his daddy paid. His daddy paid for the fake doctors report about fake bone spurs so Death Pig Donnie wouldn’t have to serve in the military. Such a COWARD! Little prancing Donnie said his Vietnam was trying not to get VD from all the infected pussies that he was fucking. But you love the con man, you believe him.

    Megan is trying to keep up her father’s hatred of our President, and he really did not like Donald Trump when he was candidate Trump. AND, when he was beat out by our President his not liking turned into hatred, and Megan is trying to keep that hatred up out of respect for her father. She has become enslaved to this hatred and it will only hurt HER in the long run. I feel really really bad for Megan because she does not know how to just LET IT GO! She does not have to love our President, but she should be able to have a tolerance for him. Until he does this, she will always be embittered about the feud Senator McCanin had with our President. I will pray for her about this issue and pray that somehow she will find it in her heart to forgive any perceived and perhaps misunderstood issues between her father (who actually kept up this feud) and President Trump. If she just can’t get over it, she will become an embittered old woman. Forgiveness is the key!!

    February 9, 2019 at 8:28 pm

    Meghan, get over it. I’m sure you loved your father, however, he died a hateful man and you are continuing the same hate. President Trump was very kind in allowing you all to have the funeral you and your family wanted for him. Ivanka and Jared took the high road and showed respect for your father. Remember Meghan, on Fox News you said many, many times that Obamacare had to be repealed and replaced because your own premiums in AZ had gone up big time. How did you feel when your own father put thumbs down and was the deciding vote? He was a vindictive and hateful man and sometimes it’s best to keep your mouth shut!!!!

  12. Carol

    February 9, 2019 at 8:33 pm

    Meghan, your father is not the only war hero. My father was also a war hero. We did not restrict anyone from coming to his funeral. Your hate for the Trump family has done to far. Grow up and get over it. Your father made a lot of err in the war too. What Trump said about your father had some truth behind it. On Trump’s part is was just poorly said. I lost all respect I had for your father.

    February 9, 2019 at 9:46 pm

    This young spoiled brat thinks she is more important than she really is. I can sympathize with her for her loss of her father, no one can deny she loved him, but that being said she is trying to use his status and captured for crashing his airplane, and my understanding was a poor pilot in the first place, then staying in the senate for way too long as her badge of importance. Her Dad went to his grave full of hate because Trump did not kiss his butt and drew attention as to how weak he really was. Obama talked down to him but was given a pass because of political correctness. He was certainly NOT a Maverick! He only asked Sarah Palin to run with him because he was trying for the women’s vote. Look how he degraded her a year later. Megan McCain is just like him, she works every angle that puts her in with the “right people:”. Who cares what she likes or don’t like?

    I find it deplorable that Meghan McCain is still carrying on this way after her father’s death. To show her true love and respect for him, she should just suck it up, be quiet and honor his memory quietly. The only thing she’s accomplishing now is to keep the pot stirred…it is more of a reflection on HER shortcomings than on the Trump family.

    There are millions of heroes, none are more important than any other…every child wants to think of their father as being the best of the best. It’s a personal thing, mourning in private is more respectful than denigrating others who showed up to pay respects to a man who treated others as if they were less than him.

    Sour grapes…grow up Meghan, shut up & move on.

    This woman needs to have some serious grief counseling. Losing a parent is terrible as anyone who has had to endure this knows, but to continue to beat her breast and scream and shout about her hatred for the President and his relationship with her father is eating her alive and will accomplish nothing but to destroy her.
    There are huge numbers of people who don’t like the president so she is nothing special.
    As to Sen McCain, he could not be honest with himself or his state. His last votes were not for the people of AZ, but rather to poke in finger in the President’s eye.

    My brother from AZ. has hated John McCain for a very long time. And he is a good conservative. He also was in the Army Special Forces during Vietnam. He said McCain was a snitch, a liar and ran on his lies and heroism all his life. He also said McCain was an Asshole and the only reason he ever won in AZ was because of the senile old people. His words not mine. As I watched him, I realized he was not the man he claimed to be. If I was Meghan, I would be quiet, so that people could forget what a mess he really was. If she keeps running her mouth, his legacy of dishonor, will never be forgotten. Too many people still remember what a traitor he was, that has been kept sealed, and too many men know about him.

    I love documentaries. I’ve seen many on POW/MIA’s. I watched McCain tell the world that he “did what he had to do” in order to get medical treatment for his injuries in order to stay alive as a POW in Vietnam. I also watched the documentary on Pvt Garwood, a USMC POW who escaped, told of other POW’s still in Vietnam and was court marshaled because it was after 14 years imprisoned. He did the same things as McCain; but is considered a traitor. WE all have our breaking points. We all suffer from pain differently. Calling one a traitor and one a hero is just disturbing. SURVIVAL makes a man/woman do whatever they have to do to stay alive. I’m not judging either man for what they may or may not have done. That’s not my job; but I always thought that if McCain is to be celebrated as a hero, then Garwood should also. IMO!
