    Following Kathy Griffin’s announcement that she had cancer, McCain decided to attack the comedian for her previous jokes made nearly 20 years ago.

    McCain was referring to comments that were made two decades ago and despite her battle with lung cancer, is demanding an apology.

    “You can just go on YouTube and see a lot of the jokes that she made about him — and other comedians, but really she led it — so I would love to hear an apology, if she’s doing this kind of soul searching, for what could’ve happened with my good friend,” McCain said.

    WHO DOES DONALD TRUMP JR WANT AS A MCCAIN REPLACEMENT?

    Donald Trump Jr has pushed for his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle to replace Meghan McCain as The View’s conservative host when she leaves the show next month.

    The former first son insisted “I’d tune in” as he joked that Guilfoyle would be ready to argue with the show’s other four liberal hosts.

    “Hey ⁦@ABC⁩ even I’d tune in to see ⁦@kimguilfoyle⁩ do this,” he tweeted. 

    “Kim vs the other 4 doesn’t seem like a fair fight though. You may need a few more libs.”

    Trump Jr later retweeted a claim that the last time Guilfoyle – a former Fox News host – appeared on The View, it had its highest ratings in months.
