Meghan McCain: Orrin Hatch 'Insensitive' for Saying It's 'Ridiculous' Trump Isn't Invited to Funeral

Ailing Senator John McCain's daughter, Meghan McCain, said the public should "chill out" about her father's funeral talks on Tuesday. The remarks came after Republican Senator Orrin Hatch said it was "ridiculous" that President Donald Trump would not be welcome to attend.

"He's doing really good, he's just making jokes, talking, standing, you know, doing a great recovery. He has a great team around him," she said on ABC's The View, which she co-hosts. "I'd like everybody to take a collective breath and chill out on my dad for a second—especially Orrin Hatch."

The older McCain, who has not seen eye to eye with Trump and is battling brain cancer, will be inviting Vice President Mike Pence instead of the president to his funeral service, according to reports over the weekend. Hatch called that alleged wish to exclude Trump "ridiculous" on Monday.

"He's the president of the United States. He's a very good man," Hatch said. "But it's up to John. I think John should have his wishes fulfilled with regard to who attends his funeral."

Meghan McCain said Hatch's comments were "just insensitive and again, it's not appreciated at this moment."

She said everyone should "take many seats right now."

"We're all doing good and hanging in," she said. "It's a process, as anyone knows, if you know anyone who has cancer, so please be kind and respectful of the fact that there's a family here, you know."

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who is a close friend of Senator McCain and visited him at his Arizona ranch the prior weekend, said the two talked about how the U.S.'s "international reputation is being damaged" under Trump.

"We talked about the need for people to stand up and speak out," said Biden, adding that the senator encouraged him to "not walk away" from politics and running for president in the 2020 election.
