Meghan McCain Goes After ‘Uncle’ Lindsey Graham: ‘Not the Person I Used to Know’

Meghan McCain Goes After ‘Uncle’ Lindsey Graham: ‘Not the Person I Used to Know’Hours after Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) backed President Trump’s recent racist attacks on Democratic congresswomen of color, The View’s Meghan McCain lamented that the man she once saw as an “uncle” and close family friend was no longer the person she knew while growing up.During his Monday morning appearance on Fox & Friends, the South Carolina senator called on Trump to “aim higher” when criticizing the group of progressive lawmakers known as The Squad, calling the group a “bunch of communists” and anti-Semites who hate America. Trump, obviously impressed with Graham’s on-air remarks, quickly quoted the Republican lawmaker on Twitter.After the hosts of The View blasted the president’s comments in general, McCain—the lone conservative on the panel—noted that her sister was born in Bangladesh while pointing out that Trump’s remarks are “deeply xenophobic and racist on a lot of different levels.” She then took issue with Graham, who had personally seen the racism her sister had been subjected to over the years.“I remember seeing you there when it happened,” she said, addressing Graham through the screen. “Seeing you on Fox & Friends was particularly, particularly hurtful.”McCain went on to state that she has also gotten a lot of heat for taking on The Squad—a group including Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley—but that the criticism of them needs to be strictly about politics. (Though McCain hasn’t always stuck to that rule.)“The problem is you’re making this about race,” she exclaimed. “You’re making this about racism. You’re making this about what’s truly American, and it’s all these old racist dog whistles that have plagued this country for so long, and for me as the conservative representative on this show, I was so upset coming back yesterday.”Later on, they aired a clip of Graham in 2015 calling Trump a “race-baiting xenophobic, religious bigot” who doesn’t represent the Republican Party nor the “values that the men and women who wear the uniform are fighting for.”McCain reacted by noting that Khizr Khan’s son died in uniform and wasn’t born in this country before taking one more shot at Graham.“I can’t do this right now, and whatever is happening to Lindsey, this is not the person I used to know,” she said.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

The Latest: Biden offers health plan 'public option' details

The Latest: Biden offers health plan 'public option' detailsFormer Vice President Joe Biden will spend much of the coming week talking about his approach to health care. On Monday, Biden is unveiling a plan that would add a "public option" to the 2010 health care overhaul known as "Obamacare," with expanded coverage paid for by raising taxes on the wealthiest Americans. Biden's almost singular focus on former President Barack Obama's health care law has been on display recently in early voting states.

JetBlue flight evacuated at Newark Airport after suicide vest photo AirDropped to passenger iPhones

JetBlue flight evacuated at Newark Airport after suicide vest photo AirDropped to passenger iPhonesA plane was evacuated after someone sent a photograph of a suicide vest to passengers and flight attendants on board.The unknown sender used Apple’s AirDrop feature, which allows users to easily and anonymously transfer files to other iOS devices using Bluetooth.Authorities say the Florida-bound plane was about to take off from Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey when the image was widely shared on board.A member of the crew on JetBlue flight 573 alerted the captain, who informed authorities at about 7.45am on Saturday.The plane returned to the gate and the 150 people on board were asked to leave the aircraft, and their luggage was re-screened and examined by police bomb-sniffing K-9 dogs.“We pull up to the gate and then we pull away and the captain comes on and says there's been a security threat,” Thomas Desmond told NBC News.“It was nervous when you see Port Authority police officers coming onto your plane and you just have no idea what's going on.”The culprit was likely one of those on board, as AirDrop only works with those in close proximity to the sender. However, they were not traced.JetBlue said the additional security screening was carried out due to “an abundance of caution.”The flight eventually departed just before 11.30am, with no knock-on effects to other flights departing or arriving at Newark.
