Cindy McCain shared with the world on Tuesday an aggressive message she received that attacked her late husband, Sen. John McCain, and her daughter, The View co-host Meghan McCain.
Cindy McCain posted a screenshot of the message that called the former Arizona Republican “traitorous” and “warmongering.” Peppered with profanity, the message later reads “I’m glad he’s dead.” The writer also says she hopes Meghan McCain “chokes to death.”
Cindy McCain said she posted the message so the poster’s “family and friends could see.”
“I want to make sure all of you could see how kind and loving a stranger can be,” McCain wrote.

Cindy McCain has spent the past few days retweeting defenses of her husband after President Donald Trump attacked him in a Sunday tweet. Trump criticized McCain for his role in distributing a salacious dossier that claimed the Russians had compromising information on Trump. The president then told reporters on Tuesday “I was never a fan of John McCain and I never will be.”
The president’s statements drew condemnation from those within his own party, including Sens. Mitt Romney and Johnny Isakson. Meghan McCain said on The View that Trump “spends his weekend obsessing over great men because – he knows it, and I know it, and all of you know it – he will never be a great man.”
