LUKE AIR FORCE BASE, Ariz. — Sen. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) spoke with President Trump about the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Wednesday, after days of unprecedented attacks by a sitting president on a dead war hero.

McSally, addressing reporters after a meeting with base commanders here Thursday, expanded on a tweet she sent Wednesday in which she called McCain a hero. The tweet did not mention Trump, and in her remarks Thursday she again refrained from criticizing the president.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I made it clear, I love John McCain. John McCain is an American hero. This state reveres John McCain, and his family deserves respect by everybody,” McSally, who was appointed to the Senate seat once held by McCain late last year after she lost her own Senate race to Democrat Kyrsten Sinema, said of her conversation with Trump.

She said others, beyond Trump, had disrespected McCain and his family, though she offered no specifics about others disparaging the long-serving senator whose seat she now holds.

“There’s a lot of disrespect going on out there all the way around. I did talk to the president yesterday. I wanted to make sure he understood how I felt about Sen. McCain and how Arizona felt about Sen. John McCain, and he heard me,” said McSally, who faces a reelection race next year.

Asked what Trump’s response was, McSally said only: “He heard me.”

    Trump has a right to use his free speech. Like it or not. If it bothers the naysayers so much then don’t read or listen. We will not kowtow to the left. You all should have heard Lars Larson defend The Prez tonight on his radio show. Amazing!

    McSally please do not speak for AZ, there are many of us that know how McCain lied to us & sold out all of us over his vengeful Obamacare vote & his major role in the Trump Dossier. With that being said I do not agree with the disrespect although McCain showed nothing but disrespect for our President McCain still has a family that loves him,

    Mc.Cain dos not deserve any praise in my book. Feel however sorry for his family, who love him and would have to be embarrassed for most of his ( so called accomplishments (?)

    I HAVE A COMMENT TO MAKE! I HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT THIS FOR A LONG TIME I THIINK MCCAIN HAD SCHLEMIEL TRAITS—WHICH A PERSON IS UNLUCKY AND THINGS NEVER TURN OUT RIGHT. I AM NOT CONDONING HIS ACTIONS! BUT I DO KNOW SOMEONE WITH THESE TRAITS. A TERRIBLE THING TO HAVE! GOD BLESS HIS FAMILY.
