Never was, never will be Sen. John McCain fan

In his own tweet, Romney said he couldn't understand why the president would "once again disparage a man as exemplary as my friend John McCain". In the note, a woman had called her a "c-t" adding, "Your husband was a traitorous piece of warmongering s-t and I'm glad he's dead".

There were plenty of "other things" that Trump didn't like about the senator.

President Trump on Tuesday gave further credence to Rep. Devin Nunes' (R-CA) conspiracy theory that Twitter is shadow-banning conservatives, telling reporters in the Rose Garden that the situation was "dangerous" and that he's noticed "names are taken off" of his account.

In a tweet over the weekend, Trump criticized McCain over the role he played in sharing the so-called Steele Dossier with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the media.

The fresh vitriol followed Trump's weekend tweets insulting the 2008 Republican presidential candidate, with whom he long had a fractious relationship. "He campaigned on repealing and replacing Obamacare for years and then it got to a vote and he said, 'Thumbs down!"'

He later said the country was as "divided as I've ever seen it".

"I'm very unhappy that he didn't repeal and replace ObamaCare", Trump told reporters when asked why he continues to posthumously attack the late Senator from Arizona, who died of brain cancer last summer.

After McCain's death in August, Trump drew widespread criticism after flags that had been lowered to half-staff at the White House were raised back to full staff before McCain's burial.

"He's a war hero 'cause he was captured", Trump said at the time dismissively. "I like people that weren't captured".
