Transcript for Critics continue to condemn Donald Trump's attacks on late Sen. John McCain
know, growing up all over again. It's not easy. Kindness, speaking of kindness, it seems to be in short supply in the rest of the world as it surrounds the white house where you-know-who continues his attack on senator John McCain. I don't even know want to show it to you but I guess I have to. Take a look. He told us hours before that he was going to repeal and replace, and then for some reason -- I think I understand the reason -- he ended up going thumbs up. Frankly, had he even known that I think we could have gotten a vote because we could have gotten somebody else so I think that's disgraceful. Plus there are other things. I was never a fan of John McCain and I never will be. As I mentioned the other day, facts matter. What you say matters. And the claims that this guy, this man in the white house has been making are not true, and you can actually fact-check them yourself, but why does he continue to attack a legitimate American hero who's not here to defend himself? We don't know. So we decided we're going to take care of it from here. You're getting smaller every day and that's why you can't deal with this. Listen -- When you do this, that really will make him crazy. Well, you know, John McCain made a judgment call on something he saw that was wrong, and it was the way you were doing things. He may have felt that there were problems with Obamacare and he may have wanted to change them but not the way you chose to do it. This is a man of integrity. Look it up. Look it up. He also said that the Republicans had a plan to repeal and replace Obamacare. They did not, so he's completely lying in that entire statement. I think he's jealous of your I really do. Yeah, hello? It's hard to see when somebody's passed away that you would still be jealous of them but this is a psycho that we're talking about here. He's not normal. He's obsessed with people that didn't support him. I'm sure he hates me in the same way. Good. Can I just say while he's sitting wherever he is writing these tweets, your brothers are out fighting for this country. Put those two images in your head. They're fighting so that he can sit there and tweet in freedom. My two brothers now serve because of your dad and how many other people in this military serve because of his inspiration, because of the example that he set where we aren't seeing inspiration is from that man in the white house. Where is the Republican party? The only two senators who came out and vociferously put this man down were Romney, my new friend -- I like him a little bit -- and senator Johnny Isaacson. Both of them are not up for re-election until 2022. I don't know about Romney, maybe even further than that. So the cowards in the Republican party need to be called out. Lindsey, where is he? He still hasn't found his you-know-what. Other people, I think that's the issue here that the McCain family has to deal with, that your party is not stepping up. The other thing that I noticed yesterday is that Cindy McCain, who I've met and is a lovely, lovely woman -- Thank you. Has received threatening messages on the internet threatening her daughter's life. And what was shocking to me was there was a time in this country when the families of politicians were off limits, and there was a time in this country where certainly you wouldn't attack them publicly and you wouldn't attack them on the internet. Now that the bullying comes from the top, the bullying comes from the administration, I would like to see that bullying be denounced not only from the Republicans but also from the white house. We have heard -- But the white house is saying Exactly. But we've heard that the first lady, her platform, is be best. Her platform is about cyber bullying. She is a mother. Why is Cindy McCain being bullied? Why are her children being attacked? The fish rots from the hot. I think that I would like to see Melania trump, I would like to see don Jr., I would like to see the trump family stop this in the white house in their family, in their house. What I saw against your mom and against your family yesterday was so hurtful to me as a mother myself. Keep in mind -- Thank you, sunny, for saying that. -- We seem to deal with stuff. If I don't agree with you, I'm going to threaten your life. Those words, whether -- you know, they'll be taken care of, lock her -- all these kind of catch phrases, we as a nation have an obligation to each other to cut this out. This is too dangerous. There are too many people who are unhinged out there who think I'm going to make a name for myself. So here's the deal. If we stand up and say, you know what, I don't agree with you politically but I'm not going to let anybody threaten you, that's what we need to do. If you're on social media, you grow a pair also, and you say this is not okay, hashtag . Can I say something really quick? Yes. Again, I know this is so bizarre because it's about my dad and it's a hot topic. Anything anybody has to say about this show, there's real sisterhood and support at this table. When it counts. Yes. And we all support each other and first and foremost, the support I have and love from this show in particular, thank you, all of you, for real. And the staff and everyone. I think if I had told my dad seven months after you're dead, you're going to be dominating the news and all over Twitter, he would think it was hilarious that our president was so jealous of him that he was dominating the news cycle in death as well. Do not feel bad for me and my family. We are blessed. We are a family of privilege. Feel bad for people out there who are being bullied that don't have support, that don't have women of "The view" to come out and support their family. There are kids committing suicide because of cyber bullying online. There are people going through rough times. There are veterans who come back -- we have 20 veterans a day committing suicide. Focus on these issues. These are the issues I beg the white house to pay attention to. The point has to be made also about how this is a distraction from the Mueller report because John Mulvaney came out last week and he had to say the president is not a white supremacist. When did you ever hear the words come out of an associate who works for trump -- Mick Mulvaney. Mick Mulvaney, say something like that, the president is not a white supremacist. Why hasn't the president talked more about the new Zealand shooting? He refuses to say anything to say. He has not had anything to say of substance since he got in. I'm surprised because I do think this is a new bizarre low. I will say, attacking someone who isn't here is a bizarre low. My dad's not here but I'm sure as hell here. And every single time they take a swing at us -- 11:00 on the east coast. It's a bizarre low that he attacked your father in the first place and he still won the election. People still follow this guy. You people need to examine yourself. From now on, any time I have a problem, I'm just going to send joy. I'll take care of him. One thing I've learned about our military, if you mess with one of their men and women that have served, they stand together because they have done what many of us have not done and they have put their lives on the front lines. Think about every minute he has spent on Twitter, the time he could spend making people's lives better. Isn't he the commander-in-chief? The saddest thing about all of this is he believes that the military is behind him. He likes to sort of put it out there like there's going to be a coup. A wakeup call. I think, dude, when you realize how people feel about you and what you're doing and what it does to the country, you know, you can talk about us and John McCain until you're blue in the face. It's not going to change the fact that he was a hero. You're not going to change it. It's like Barack Obama, you can talk about him until you're gray in the face. He's always going to be the first black president. Until you're Orange in the face. It's going to always be that. You can't get rid of that. So focus on some stuff you can help. Focus on our health care and the insurance companies who keep screwing us over. You want to focus on some stuff, you want to fight, let's fight about that.
