Things are getting heated between conservative commentator Michelle Malkin and the family of the late Sen. John McCain.
Malkin appeared at CPAC, the annual gathering of conservatives, and gave a speech on open borders.
She included what many consider to be RINOS or Republicans In Name Only, that she believes are as responsible as the Democrats.
“It’s the GOP sell-outs — not just the radical, open-borders left — that is in bed with immigration saboteurs,” she said.
“Like the ones who hijacked the Tea Party movement to shill for amnesty,” the Fox News commentator said.
“Those are the real grifters cashing in at the expense of their base and at the expense of our country,” she said.
“Sanctuary cities have metastasized and both parties are to blame! And yes, I’m looking at you, retired Paul Ryan. And yes, I’m looking at you, Mitch McConnell,” she said.
“Yes, I’m looking at you, Bush family. And yes, I’m looking at you, the ghost of John McCain,” she said.
Do you agree with Malkin?
The comments angered the family of Sen. McCain and their friends who came out firing at the conservative author.
“@michellemalkin You never knew @SenJohnMcCain . You should be so lucky,” his wife, Cindy McCain, said.

“Meet the open borders family: McCain, Hernandez, Soros, and the ‘Reform Institute,’” she fired back.

“CPAC was once a place to exchange conservative ideas. Now it’s just a place for agitprop and mean-spirited garbage,” CNN commentator S.E. Cupp, a close friend of Meghan McCain, said.

Meghan McCain retweeted the jab from Cupp which prompted a response from Malkin to both.
“Useless virtue signaler abetting our destruction said what?” Malkin fired back sarcastically.
