Meghan McCain is Disappointed with Trump

Things between the McCain family and the Trump family haven't always been overtly cordial — at least on Donald Trump's end. In 2015, Trump said of Senator John McCain, a former prisoner of war in North Vietnam: "He's not a war hero. He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren't captured."

Then, when POTUS delivered a speech at CPAC earlier this month, he seemed to take aim at McCain for his decision not to vote for the GOP's "skinny" healthcare bill. "I don't want to be controversial, so I won't use his name," Trump said. "What a mess." Awkward! 

So, how are relations between the two families today? The senator's daughter, for one, isn't afraid to weigh in candidly on that topic. Meghan McCain, who is a co-host on The View, stopped by Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen on February 27. 

"[Trump] called me on the phone after it was reported on Axios that he had sort of been making fun of my father," Meghan said. She added, speaking to Andy Cohen: "You're the first person to ask me about this, by the way. That's why this show is dangerous."  

Watch the clip above to hear how the conversation went and how Meghan feels about Donald Trump today.
