“The View” co-host Meghan McCain strongly condemned President Donald Trump and his hypocritical State of the Union Address (SOTU) on Wednesday in response to his attack on her late father just hours before he called for unity and rejecting political revenge.
“We must reject the politics of revenge, resistance, and retribution and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise, and the common good. We must choose between greatness or gridlock, results or resistance, vision or vengeance, incredible progress or pointless destruction. Tonight, I ask you to choose greatness,” Trump laughably said after two years of being vengeful himself.

But Trump had already shredded his own credibility just hours prior during a meeting with network executives by viciously insulting several people, including Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.), who died after a battle with brain cancer just over five months ago.
Trump first called former Vice-President Joe Biden “dumb” and privately hoped he would deliver the Democratic response and make several gaffes. He then moved to attack Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), whom he called a “son of a bitch.”
Next up was Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), whom Trump referred to as “Pocahontas.”
He then attacked McCain for supposedly betraying him by voting against repealing Obamacare and then bragged that the revered American war hero “wrote a book and the book bombed.”
Of course, that’s a lie since McCain’s final book made several bestseller lists.
Clearly, Trump was busy being vengeful only hours before he hypocritically called upon the nation to ditch revenge politics.
McCain’s daughter Meghan initially responded by calling Trump’s attack “pathetic,” but she saved her strongest criticism for Wednesday’s episode of “The View,” during which she not only took Trump to the woodshed, but dragged his speech.
“What was hard for me last night is while I was getting ready and reading my notes beforehand and I get a notice that President Trump had a meeting with the network heads and he had called Senator Chuck Schumer a ‘nasty son of a b*tch’, Joe Biden ‘dumb’, said some disparaging things once again of my father who passed five and a half months ago,” she began.
“So for me when he’s talking about ‘we must reject the politics of revenge, resistance politics, and retribution,’ you aren’t being bipartisan mere hours earlier obsessing over people you consider your enemies,” she continued.
“For me, it was a kabuki theatre, virtue signal,” she concluded. “The entire speech last night, towards his base. But please don’t sit here and tell me you are grasping for bipartisanship at this moment when Chuck Schumer is a ‘son of a b*tch,’ and my father’s book, quote, ‘bombed’, and Joe Biden is quote ‘dumb.’”

Trump literally sabotaged his own SOTU message and demonstrated that while he wants the nation to reject revenge politics, he fully intends to keep being vengeful. It’s basically a ‘do what I say, not as I do’ speech and now the nation knows that he didn’t mean a single word he said and is incapable of leading by example.
