Trump takes aim at the late John McCain in a tweet about Obamacare

Actions

WASHINGTON (CIRCA) — President Trump came after the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in a tweet Saturday for his vote on the Obamacare repeal.

Before his death last year, McCain voted against the GOP bill that aimed to replace the Affordable Care Act from the Obama administration. McCain was also a critic of President Trump throughout his administration, even making the request that Trump not attend his funeral.

The tweet quotes Ken Starr, the independent counsel who investigated the Clinton administration, regarding a supposed dossier that is rumored to contain evidence of Trump's ties to Russia. Trump calls the dossier "fake and totally discredited," before adding that a worse "stain" on McCain is his vote against the Republican health care bill.

Many are criticizing the president for coming after the legacy of McCain after his death. McCain's daughter, Meghan, tweeted back at the president in response.
