Peter King: Trump Made Inappropriate Remarks about McCain and Meghan Had the Right to Take a Shot at Trump

‘Meghan McCain had the right to say whatever he wanted to say’


WELKER: "And Congressman, you heard Meghan McCain’s very strong, emotional remarks, what a lot of people saw as a rebuke of President Trump himself. I wonder what your takeaway was?"
KING: "Oh, it is no doubt she was taking a bit of a shot at President Trump. And I think -- listen, Meghan McCain had the right to say whatever he wanted to say. She was her father’s daughter. President Trump and her father didn’t get along. President Trump made some very inappropriate remarks about John McCain, you know, not being a hero. And she had every right to do that. So I have no — she is her father’s daughter in every sense of the word. She loves her father and she fights like her father. I have no problem with what she said. Again, I would hope if my daughter was in that situation, she would say the same things. So I understand that completely."
