Meghan McCain is not the critics of her Christmas tribute to her late father, Sen. John McCain, are.

On christmas Eve night, Meghan, 34, tweeted a sweet photo of John, who died at 81 in August.

“I love you,” she wrote. “Merry Christmas, Dad, @SenJohnMcCain — where you are.”


She retweeted a troll who wrote: “do this in private.”

“If there is one thing that I have in 2019 is to continue to destigmatize talking about grief, death, and cancer,” Meghan snapped back. “My father shared his life in the public, I share in the death. There is missing a loved one tonight – you’re not alone. I am along side of you, sending strength.”

Meghan has regularly worshipped with her father since his death.

In November, “The View” co-host posted a sweet tribute to the War in Vietnam vet on Veterans Day, writing, “Today on #Veteransday we remember and honor those who have selflessly served and sacrificed. Those who have and continue to fight to protect our freedoms -I am forever grateful. I miss you so much Daddy, thank you for showing me what to fight for something greater than yourself.”

They also honored him in October, as well as speaking at his funeral in August.
