In the wake of the Donald Trump rally on Wednesday where his supporters started chanting “send her back,” referring to Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, Meghan McCain reminded Trump how a real respectable man like her father would handle such chants.
On Wednesday night, Meghan McCain took to Twitter to share a video of her father, the late Arizona Sen. John McCain (R), telling his supporters not to attack then-presidential candidate Barack Obama.
“I can’t trust Obama,” one supporter told McCain at the time. “I have read about and he’s not – he’s not — he’s an Arab.”
The then-presidential candidate could be seen taking the microphone from the supporter while shaking his head before going on to say: “No, ma’am. He’s a decent family man, a citizen who I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues.”
“And that’s what this campaign is all about,” he continued.
Meghan McCain wrote in the post on Wednesday that she was sharing the old footage for “anyone who needs reminding of how a lot of Republicans like me were raised and how we view the world.”
“I love you Dad and I’ve never missed your leadership more,” she added.
