Megan McCain Just Threw The Ultimate Shade At Trump Over His Self-Congratulatory Vietnam Tweet

On Tuesday, February 26, President Donald Trump sent this tweet boasting about his trip to Vietnam while also mocking Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) who was the center of a 2010 controversy where he claimed to have spent time in Vietnam while in the Marine Corps when, in fact, he had not.

If there’s anyone who shouldn’t be bragging about his time in Vietnam, it’s President Donald Trump, who received multiple draft determents for alleged “bone spurs.” The daughters of the podiatrist who diagnosed Trump’s spurs recently told the New York Times that their father got Donald Trump out of the draft as “a favor” to his father, Fred Trump.

Fortunately, Meghan McCain, daughter of the late Senator John McCain, who was held in captivity and tortured by the Vietcong during while serving in the military, had the perfect question for the President:

The “Hanoi Hilton” is what prisoners of the North Vietnamese used to call their jails. McCain’s not-so-subtle jab at the President’s cowardice and arrogance had Twitter laughing nonstop.

Complicating matters still further, former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen testified before Congress on Wednesday, February 27, saying he’d had conversations with the President which allegedly confirm Trump dodged the draft:

“…when I asked for medical records, he gave me none and said there was no surgery. He finished the conversation with the following comment: ‘You think I’m stupid, I wasn’t going to Vietnam.’”

No matter their political affiliation, everyone on Twitter had to pass Meghan McCain props for her sick burn:

Others felt the swipe may have been a bit too high brow for its recipient.

The tweet also served as a reminder of how much many missed the late Senator McCain.

Trump and Senator John McCain had a tumultuous relationship since the reality star began his presidential campaign. During an interview, Trump once said he resented McCain’s status as a war hero, and that the term “hero” should be reserved for those who weren’t captured. McCain would later cast the deciding vote that tanked Trump’s planned repeal of Obamacare.

People couldn’t believe Trump’s audacity. If there’s one person who should probably be avoiding the topic of serving in Vietnam, it’s him.

Sometimes a quality clapback is the only way to put the world right.

Well done, Meghan! Your father, the maverick of the Senate, would be proud.
