“The View” co-host Meghan McCain trolled President Donald Trump after the networks called her home state of Arizona for President-elect Joe Biden on Thursday night.
And she did it by sharing a meme with a twist on an insult Trump famously hurled at her father, the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who was the 2008 Republican presidential nominee:
McCain was a Navy aviator in Vietnam, where he was shot down and held as a prisoner of war for five years ― and was repeatedly tortured during that time.
But Trump in 2015 belittled his service.
“He’s not a war hero,” Trump, who claimed bone spurs to escape military service, said at the time. “He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”
Trump repeatedly attacked McCain throughout his presidency, even after the senator’s death in 2018 from brain cancer.
While Trump won Arizona in 2016, Biden made a play for the state this year, securing the endorsement of McCain’s widow Cindy McCain.
Thursday night’s election call makes Biden the first Democrat to win Arizona since President Bill Clinton in 1996.
