Transcript for Meghan McCain responds to the president's tweets about her late father
We got a lot to get to. I'm very happy to be here sitting up, actually being able to talk to people without people going, do you need something? I do, and what I needed was this. So things seemingly haven't changed much since I left because once again the person in the white house spent the weekend ranting on Twitter, went after everybody from "Snl" to the Mueller investigation to Meghan's dad. I mean, it's crazy. He claims that the new court papers prove emerging markets Cain worked with Democrats to get the fake Steele dossier. Facts still matter still. Still I'm happy to say. Let's correct some of his fake -- I'm not going to say anything bad -- news. There's a couple errors here. There's no evidence that he knew -- that John McCain knew about the dossier before the election. That's a lie. That's not true. He handed them over to the FBI after the election. After. Right. And these are proven. The facts are there if anybody cares to look. And if you're still buying the stuff that -- you know, that you're not sure about or what he's saying, you know, major parts of the dossier are verified like regular contact between you know who's campaign and the Russians and the Kremlin favoring you know who. Look, this is a guy that's supposed to be running the country. Crazy stuff is happening in the world and he's pissed off because he's watching a rerun of "Snl." I mean, what the hell? I mean, really, what is going what is happening? What are you doing? You're kind of like Howard Hughes. I'm going to watch your fingernails from now on because I think you're just not -- you're missing the point of what your job is supposed to be. I don't understand. Maybe it's because, you know, death became me, okay, but I'm here and I'm really annoyed that you haven't figured this out yet and you're two, three years in. Yeah. What the hell? Whoopi is back, everybody. Whoopi Goldberg is back. Well, here's the thing -- Speaking of the baby, I can tell you I was irate over the weekend. He was rambling. It was one of the lowest points, I think, for him. But it made me so sadly grateful that my child is too young to understand what's going on in this country, that I don't have to explain to her why our president is spending his time over the weekend tweeting this nonsense. I don't have to explain that to her but how many parents out there do. How many families like yours have to go through this crap. It really is sad. He tweeted against John McCain who passed away unfortunately not that long ago. It's kind of a pathetic statement on his part because when John McCain was getting the silver star, trump was at his doctor's trying to get out of the draft with these alleged bone spurs, so let's start there. And then on top of that -- Talk about privilege. Yeah. And on top of that, Lindsey graham, I have a bone to pick with him because Lindsey graham -- I know he's your godfather or something -- No, you take all of this, joy. Lindsey graham was John McCain's best friend -- Joe Lieberman is. Joe Lieberman number one and Lindsey number two, is that about right? Three or four. He was in the room. They were buds. They were bros. They were buds. And Lindsey, what he wrote is, as for John McCain and his devotion to his country, he stepped forward to risk his life for his country. True. Served honorably under difficult circumstances, true. Not just difficult. I mean, they tortured John McCain. And was one of the most consequential senators in the history of the body. He does not say the president is out of line. He doesn't say that it is a ridiculous thing to go after John McCain at this point. He does not say what you just said which is that there are lies in the tweet. Yes. And I think that Lindsey graham is making a huge error right now in believing that this man will ever ever back him up because Lindsey is crawling to the president so that he can get re-elected, and trump is acting like a sadist towards Lindsey graham, putting him between a rock and a hard place and saying, okay, bow to me even more now. Because what is Lindsey going to do? He wants to get re-elected. He needs to find his testicularty now and go for it. That's what I have to say to Lindsey graham. You know, I -- I think that you handled yourself this weekend with so much class. Oh, read her tweet back. I really appreciated that because you and I are very similar in the sense that I know people think we're different but we're not that different because if you come for one of mine, you're dead to me and I'm coming after you, but I try to handle things with class and dignity. And the way this president is acting is so pathetic and beneath the dignity of this office that it was so offensive to me what he said about your father. Read what Meghan said. You responded and said, no one will ever love you the way they loved my father. I wish I had been given more Saturdays with him. Maybe spend yours with your family instead of on Twitter obsessing over mine. And I thought -- Thank you, sunny. -- That's how you do this. Except nobody in his family wants to spend time with him. That's the only problem. I appreciate it. It's uncomfortable for everyone because it's obviously about my father and I'm your co-host canned I appreciate these wonderful words. He spends his weekend obsessing over wonderful great men because he knows it and I know it, he will never be a great man. My father was his kryptonite in life and in death. On a personal note I agree with you, all of us have love and families and when my father was alive until adulthood we would spend our time fishing, cooking, celebrating life and I think it's because he almost died. And I just thought your life is spent on weekends not with your family, not with your friends but obsessing, obsessing over great men you could never live up. That tells you everything you needed to know about his pathetic life. Yes. I genuinely feel bad for his family. I can't imagine having a father that does this on the weekend. Oh, they're all on the same page. Don't feel sorry for them. Okay. You know, Tiffany is a great kid. By all means, take the floor. What really kind of knocked me out is how do you not recognize a rerun on TV that has sort of christmassy stuff in it. One would think you watch this enough to recognize when you say this was on the last time. Oh, they're trying to trick me. No, you buy into it. See, this is why I can't listen to anything you're saying. You don't know a rerun when you see it, especially when it's about you and you know you watch them. You know you watch these shows. So sir, get out of the way so that people who actually love the country can do what they need to do.
