Bridget McCain, the late Sen. Jon McCain’s youngest child, has publicly spoken out against President Donald Trump’s repeated attacks on her father for the first time.
The 27-year-old has typically kept herself out of the public eye, both before and after her father died last August, but she tweeted two messages Thursday in which she tagged the President.
“Everyone doesn’t have to agree with my dad or like him, but I do ask you to be decent and respectful,” she wrote. Reminding the President that he was not invited to McCain’s funeral, she said, “Unfortunately, you could not be counted on to be courteous, as you are a child in the most important role the world knows.”
It was a big moment for Bridget, her sister Meghan said on ABC’s show “The View” Thursday. “Anyone who knows anything about political history can probably surmise why she’s chosen to lead a very private life,” she said of Bridget, who was adopted from Bangladesh by John and Cindy McCain.
The comments from McCain’s daughters, two of the senator’s seven children, come after multiple days of attacks by Trump.
