President Donald Trump is again going after the late Republican Senator from Arizona, John McCain.
Trump spoke to reporters about McCain's deciding "no" vote on the repeal of Obamacare, effectively ending the President's push to undo one of former President Barack Obama's foremost achievements.
"I think that's disgraceful. Plus there are other things, I was never a fan of John McCain and I never will be."

Trump's latest attack is part of an ongoing feud with the McCain family,
Days earlier, the President—who reportedly went to great efforts to conceal his high school and college transcripts—chastised the late McCain as "last in his class" on Twitter.

McCain's daughter Meghan didn't hold back in her response.

Twitter is roasting the President for his latest comments.

@ABC John McCain was honorable and respected. Two things @POTUS does not have.— jstichweh (@jstichweh) 1553016684.0
They weren't done.
Many were mystified that the President is still holding a grudge against McCain nearly seven months after his death.
I think McCain would get a kick out of the fact that he had been dead for 6 months but is still pissing off Trump https://t.co/cRrJpf6da8— John Bresnahan (@John Bresnahan) 1553014119.0

@yashar We need to start seriously considering the possibility that Donald Trump genuinely does not realize John McCain is dead.— Max Kennerly (@Max Kennerly) 1553014390.0
The President initially failed to lower the White House flag until days after McCain's death. He was also famously not invited to the Senator's funeral, which was attended by every living former President.
