It's no secret Meghan McCain is no fan of President Donald Trump.
But when speaking about his latest decision—to abandon Kurdish US allies in Syria—McCain reserved her harshest criticism for the Republican Party.
On the October 7 episode of The View, McCain was visibly angry as she stated regarding Kurdish fighters that helped US forces fight ISIS:
"I've been so mad this morning and so upset about this news that we are abandoning our Kurdish allies in the Middle East."
"These are allies of ours that American soldiers are still continuing to fight alongside."
"All we did was arm them, and they fought for America, and right now, we're just saying we're just going to leave them and abandon them."
She then raised the issue of GOP criticism of President Barack Obama's decision to withdraw forces from Iraq while remaining silent on Trump's planned departure from Syria.
"To everyone in the White House and every Republican who was mad that President Obama pulled out of Iraq, you feckless, unpatriotic cowards."
"I cannot believe this is where we're at diplomaticwise. What message is this sending to our allies who have fought alongside us and American troops who have fought and died for this?"

While McCain herself faces frequent criticism, people were on board with her assessment of the GOP under Trump.
