In an interview with The Bulwark, Isakson says he's grown fed up with the president's attacks on his late colleague, who passed away a year ago after a lengthy battle with cancer. "John McCain seven months after his death?"

"The United States President took to Twitter to take up his continued onslaught, saying that the elder McCain's act of "spreading" the infamous Russian dossier, which Trump branded as "fake" and "totally discredited", was a "'dark stain, '" quoting independent counsel Ken Starr, against the senator.

McCain shocked some by indirectly condemning Trump at her father's funeral, noting in her remarks that "America was always great".

The president has been at odds with McCain since before he entered the White House. In addition to being a 2008 GOP presidential nominee, McCain also spent more than five years in captivity as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam. McCain gave a copy of the first 33 pages of the dossier to the Federal Bureau of Investigation in December 2016, which Fox News said was confirmed by former senior counterintelligence Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Bill Priestap in a newly released filing.

"He spends his weekend obsessing over great men, because he knows it, and I know it, and all of you know it, he will never be a great man", she said Monday on the ABC show "The View", where she is a co-host.
