CNN’s Ken Cuccinelli Goes After Meghan McCain For ‘Lobbing Political Hand Grenades’ At Father’s Funeral
Much of MAGA World were beside themselves over the Washington memorial service of Sen. John McCain. With two former presidents eulogizing the Republican icon while President Donald Trump was left uninvited, snide tweets and pissy comments were all the rage for MAGAts such as Seb Gorka, Katrina Pierson, and the Pizzagate dudes. They were especially upset over Meghan McCain’s obvious criticism of Trump during her eulogy as she said: “the America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great.”
While the Gorkas and the Lahrens of the world did their best to take the prize for Most Distasteful Tweet, no one was ever going to catch up to CNN political commentator Ken Cuccinelli.
In response to a tweet quoting The View host honoring her father while taking a veiled shot at Trump, the former Virginia attorney general decided to go after the grieving daughter.
It's too bad she can't participate in a funeral instead of lobbing political hand grenades.

“It’s too bad she can’t participate in a funeral instead of lobbing political hand grenades,” he wrote.
It didn’t take long for folks on Twitter to take Cuccinelli to task over his tasteless tweet.

Ken Cuccinelli went after a grieving daughter *while she was eulogizing her father*.

I'd reconsider this tweet if I were you. https://t.co/MFs95KYIJ5

Too bad your bitter ass can’t win an election. Actually never mind that’s a good thing.

@KenCuccinelli, you support a traitor who doesn’t think John McCain is a war hero. Now you have problem with his grieving daughter? You are the inversion of the values of patriotism and Christianity that you and so many others pretend to represent. https://t.co/mqm9OUZ77Q

Earlier this week, Cuccinelli complained about the media’s criticism of Trump’s initial reaction to McCain’s death, asking “what’s enough” attention or adulation that needs to be paid to the fallen senator.
We reached out to CNN for comment on Cuccinelli’s tweet about Meghan McCain and will update if we hear back.
