Meghan McCain has come out swinging against Donald Trump, in defense of her father, saying the billionaire and presidential hopeful had no right to say John McCain isn't a war hero – that the statement has "disgusted" her.
In Twitter reaction to Trump's statements, the 30-year-old wrote: "Horrified. Disgusted. There are no words."

She also wrote, the New York Daily News found, "I can't believe what I am reading. ... I have a brother that just returned from Afghanistan a month ago, glad he can come home to this being said about his father and his service."
McCain also went on "The Kelly File" on Fox News and called Trump's remarks "one of the grossest, most disgusting comments I've ever heard," adding the candidate didn't just attack her father, but all veterans and prisoners-of-war.
"The worst part about this is it's taking away from real conversations we should be having about the failures of the Obama administration," she said. "And it makes Republicans look like we're disorganized and we're in-fighting. And, on top of everything else, any discussion about any veteran's heroism at all has no place in the national dialogue whatsoever."
