Meghan McCain: Father's Critics Will 'Answer for Their Own Conscience'

By    |   Monday, 14 May 2018 02:34 PM

Meghan McCain, the daughter of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said Monday that those who disparaged her father are "going to have to answer for their own conscience," ABC News reports.

"The View" co-host addressed the report that a White House aide dismissed her father’s concerns about President Donald Trump’s nominee to lead the CIA, saying that McCain’s opinion “doesn’t matter,” because the senator, who has brain cancer, is "dying anyway."

McCain first pointed out that she already said she asked the aide, Kelly Sadler, to publicly apologize for her comment.

"She said she would," McCain told ABC on Sunday. "I have not spoken to her since and I assume that it will never come."

On Monday, McCain said that "People are going to have to answer for their own conscience. When you go on TV — I've never actually gone on TV and lied, I have that liberty in my life — when you go on TV and you say things like this, your belief in right and wrong, people espouse a lot about God and living with values and you say things like that. It's what you're going to have to live with at this point."

She also blasted the White House’s refusal to comment on the remark, saying that it was leaked from a private conversation.

"If you're a public figure and you're working in the White House you should expect it to be leaked," McCain said.

"The only silver lining of all of this — including this horrific weekend and moment that my family has been having — is we have a platform to hopefully pivot this towards brain cancer research and helping especially children in need."
