Meghan McCain is defending her cancer-stricken father, John McCain, against Donald Trump‘s latest attacks. The senator and the president are involved in yet another dust-up. Watch the “GMA” video below.

On Monday, as Senator McCain was honored with the Liberty Medal, he made a speech in which he decried “half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems.” Many interpreted the comment as a dig against President Trump. He responded during a radio interview on Tuesday, saying, “Yeah, well, I hear it. And people have to be careful because at some point I fight back. I’m being very nice. I’m being very, very nice. But at some point I fight back, and it won’t be pretty.”

McCain, who survived being a prisoner of war, later told reporters, “I’ve faced far greater challenges than this.” Now his daughter Meghan is also speaking out in his defense. “I think the fighting between them just comes from the fact that they have deep ideological differences of perspective on how America is run, how the Republican party should work together,” she said. The new co-host of “The View” continued to tell George Stephanopoulos, “On a personal note, I don’t know about you, but I’m exhausted with the in-fighting within the Republican party. I’m exhausted with the attacks on my father.”

Meghan went on, “I don’t know if you guys have heard, but my father is fighting glioblastoma right now and there’s nothing that could possibly happen and be a threat to my family that can possibly be more painful than what we are going through right now and have gone through in the past three months, so whatever threats are being levied right now, I’m telling you, we’re a tough ride or die family and right now, there’s nothing that can possibly happen that can possibly be more complicated.”

“And I just have high hopes that some day President Trump and the rest of the Republican party can find some common ground together, where if you have any kind of difference of opinion on the future of the country or the party, you’re not just automatically going to be threatened in return,” she said. Fortunately, “all things considered,” Meghan confirmed her father is doing “good.” Check out the video below.
