Meghan McCain pulled no punches on today's Outnumbered on Fox News Channel when asked to share her thoughts on Trump's continued nasty remarks regarding her father and veterans in general.

"HOST: I've never been there with John McCain because I always felt he should have done a much better job for the Vets. He has not done a good job for the Vets. I have always felt he should have done a much better job.

MCCAIN: I can answer you as an analyst or I can answer you as a daughter, As a daughter I choose a daughter first...my 2 brothers have had multiple deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan and other places I can't say on television because I don't know. They served with honor while his son's were doing reality television shows.

So being told that my family doesn't understand war and veterans and veterans issues breaks my heart. I am the granddaughter and great granddaughter of two Navy admirals. My family understands veterans issues.

This is the first time in my entire life that I had my family's service questioned.

As an analyst I would like Donald Trump to stop shooting inside the tent. We need to present a united front. Both Paul Ryan and my father have shown their support to him and I just don't understand this unless I guess defending a Gold Star mother is warranted to rescinding his endorsement."

Prior to the above clip from today, Meghan McCain had expressed this on twitter:

Ironic that a man who has never served a day in his life due to "bone spurs" and managed to get 5 deferments is insulting a POW.
