Trump attacks John McCain over dossier. Meghan McCain swipes back

Claiming that McCain had finished "last in his class" at the Naval Academy, Trump accused him of working with Democrats to get the "Fake Dossier" into mainstream reporting.

Trump's quote of Ken Starr came from Starr's recent appearance on Fox News' Fox & Friends, where he discussed alleged media leaks of a dossier that "alleges the Trump campaign worked with the Russian government to defeat rival Hillary Clinton in 2016".

The president has long shown his disdain for McCain, a fighter pilot before becoming a politician, who spent more than five years as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam in the 1960s after being shot down over Hanoi.

However, if one believes the now available records, McCain did not provide the dossier to the media, as the president's tweet seems to imply.

Twice last weekend, Trump tweeted harsh criticism of McCain.

"View" co-host Meghan McCain slammed the president Saturday following a presidential tweet about her late father, Sen.

While the smartphone's back might give the illusion of a polished glass surface, it is actually made from polycarbonate material. The Redmi AirDots are priced at 99.9 yuan ($15, ₹1,000), which is exactly half of what the Mi AirDots are priced at.


When Trump launched another attack Sunday, McCain's daughter said, "My father lives rent free in your head", in a tweet that later appeared to have been deleted.

McCain's tweet was very well-received, garnering almost 100,000 "likes" by Sunday afternoon.

"He had far worse "stains" than this, including thumbs down on repeal and replace [of the Obama-era Affordable Care Act] after years of campaigning to repeal and replace!" John McCain via Twitter on Saturday and Sunday, eliciting a response from Meghan McCain in defense of her father.

Meghan McCain didn't hold back in defending her late father, John McCain, after President Trump recently attacked the late senator on Twitter.

Mark Salter, one of Mr. McCain's closest advisers and co-author of several books with him, was even more biting. "Maybe spend yours with your family instead of on twitter obsessing over mine?", she posted on her Twitter account.

Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of SC and one of Mr. McCain's closest friends, chose to praise his friend rather than criticize the president.
