Conservative commentator Michelle Malkin attacked the “ghost of John McCain” during a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday.
“Sanctuary cities have metastasized and both parties are to blame,” Malkin said. “And yes, I’m looking at you, retired [Speaker] Paul Ryan; and yes, I’m looking at you, [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell; and yes, I’m looking at you, Bush family; and yes, I’m looking at you, the ghost of John McCain.”
She pointed upward while directing her fury at McCain’s ghost, at which point several people in the crowd gave Malkin a standing ovation.
“It’s the GOP sell-outs, not just the radical, open-borders left, that is in bed with immigration saboteurs,” Malkin said. “Like the ones who hijacked the tea party movement to shill for amnesty. Those are the real grifters cashing in and practicing deceit at the expense of their base and at the expense of our country.

CPAC was once a place to exchange conservative ideas. Now it’s just a place for agitprop and mean-spirited garbage. https://t.co/kodegGXNB7
