Meghan McCain is Angry that VP Kamala Harris Honored Her Father John McCain in Vietnam
One would think that the Vice-President taking time to honor John McCain’s sacrifice, while in the country in which McCain spent five and a half years as a prisoner of war, would make Meghan herself feel appreciated and honored. One would think she might be humble about it. We would have believed such. And yet we all would’ve overestimated McCain, who – as we always mention, is as MAGA as anyone around. She just hides it behind personal hatred of Trump. She may hate the man personally, she loves the movement.
Vice-President Harris is in Vietnam as part of her tour of Southeast Asia. Quite nicely, one would think, she took time to honor John McCain: According to the Daily Mail:
Harris tweeted a photo of herself Wednesday laying flowers at a monument on Trúc Bạch Lake in Hanoi, where John McCain almost drowned in 1967 after being shot down while flying a US Navy bombing mission. He was then captured by the North Vietnamese and held as a prisoner of war for five-and-a-half years.
Today, on the three-year anniversary of his passing, I paid my respects to an American hero, Senator John McCain. At this site in 1967, then-Lieutenant Commander McCain was shot down. We honor his sacrifice in Vietnam, and the sacrifice of all our men and women in uniform. pic.twitter.com/rrxJ8RUxQJ

Nice, huh? There are a lot of people VP Harris could have honored in Vietnam. Many Americans sacrificed their lives there. Indeed, perhaps she should have, instead, because Meghan McCain didn’t appreciate it:
But Meghan was quick to take offense, and responded: ‘If you want to honor my dads legacy on this anniversary of his death – you would spend every second making sure every single American and Afghan ally is out of harms way.’
Please excuse us but this is extra infuriating. Fck you, Meghan.
If you want to honor my dads legacy on this anniversary of his death – you would spend every second making sure every single American and Afghan ally is out of harms way.
He was nothing if not someone who understood sacrifice and loyalty to the people he served with.

Exactly what is the Vice President supposed to do to help get American citizens out of Afghanistan? Two American Congressmen went to Kabul and were blasted for getting in the way. Imagine a Vice President. Is there something she was supposed to be doing in Washington? Evidently not, or she would be there doing it. If it was Biden visiting all these places that would be one thing. But putting off a long-planned good-will tour to other countries in order to… we’re not sure, is stupid.
She didn’t let rain stop her. Today, on the 3rd anniversary of John McCain’s passing, VP Kamala Harris paid tribute to him at the Hanoi memorial where his plane was shot down. pic.twitter.com/XhZynydmX0

So is Meghan McCain. Another McCain rule of thumb, the only time she is happy is when she is complaining.
