Meghan McCain: No One Can ‘Question The Honor Of My Father’

President Donald Trump shot back at Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) after the Senator criticized the president for his recent military operation in Yemen. Some people felt the president's backlash was out of line. One of those people is Sen. McCain's daughter, Meghan McCain.

The raid in Yemen was in attempt to gather intelligence information, and the Trump administration has called it a success for fulfilling that objective. However, the death of some 30 civilians and a US Navy SEAL has some people calling the move a disaster. John McCain, former Navy aviator and Vietnam POW, disagreed.

"When you lose a $75 million airplane and, more importantly, an American life is lost and wounded I don't believe you can call it a success,” he told NBC News.

The president immediately lashed back at McCain with a series of tweets.

"Sen. McCain should not be talking about the success or failure of a mission to the media. Only emboldens the enemy! He's been losing so.... long he doesn't know how to win anymore, just look at the mess our country is in - bogged down in conflict all over the place. Our hero... Ryan died on a winning mission (according to General Mattis), not a "failure." Time for the U.S. to get smart and start winning again!" read the president's collective tweets.

Sen. McCain has not responded, but his daughter has tweeted back and given the president a piece of her mind.

"Trump has never served. My father can't bend one of his knees or lift one of his arms above his head. I am done with this today. DONE," Meghan wrote.

"Disagree with politics ANY single day but how dare anyone question the honor of my father and his service," she continued.

The media also began picking on McCain. CNN commentator Carl Higbie called the Senator ‘dishonorable.'

"It is BIZARRE to watch a navy seal @CarlHigbie to say my father's service was dishonorable. BIZARRE. I am on Earth freaking 2," Meghan tweeted.

"@MeghanMcCain I respect your father service but not his politics," Higbie tweeted back.

"@CarlHigbie please say that on television next time after you question his record for crashing a plane before being taken into a POW camp," responded Meghan.

"@MeghanMcCain have your father show my president the same respect and I'll come on your show to apologize publicly... deal?" Higbie concluded.
