Meghan saw the message from the insensitive troll and took the time to respond:

Saying goodbye to the great American hero

John McCain died on August 25 after a prolonged battle with brain cancer. He was 81 and still in office as the U.S. Senator from Arizona.


Politicians from both parties, including McCain's former rival Barack Obama, attended his funeral in Washington.

The most memorable moment of the service was Meghan McCain’s powerful eulogy. It sounded touching and strong-willed at the same time – not something that anyone who listened can forget.


This incredibly strong woman should have however much time she needs to process her dad’s passing, and no one can criticize her for that.
