(Newser) – Meghan McCain says she is so sick of the Trump administration's behavior that she won't accept private calls from the White House anymore—and she'll never forgive President Trump for his attacks on her father. Early in his campaign, Trump mocked Sen. John McCain for having been captured during the Vietnam War and he has frequently targeted the senator from Arizona since then, especially for his refusal to vote for ObamaCare repeal, Time reports. Trump's "comments are never going to be OK with me, especially at this moment in my life," Meghan McCain said Friday. "I'm never going to forgive it. I'm never going to move on from it."

McCain, a co-host on The View, was speaking at the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library in Texas, where she collected the LBJ Liberty and Justice for All award on behalf of her ailing father, the Hill reports. She said Kelly Sadler, the former White House aide who joked about her father's terminal cancer, still hasn't delivered the public apology she promised. If anybody from the White House "wants to say anything to me in any way, they have to do it publicly," McCain said. "I don’t take private phone calls from the Trump administration anymore." (When Sadler's remarks were first reported, McCain slammed the White House staffers as "nothing burgers.")
