In a memorial service headlined by former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush — whom John McCain personally asked to serve as eulogists at his funeral — McCain's daughter, Meghan McCain, delivered a powerful eulogy for her late father.

She even took an apparent swing at President Donald Trump.

What happened?

It's no secret that John McCain, the longtime Arizona senator, was no fan of Trump. Meghan, who works as a regular panelist on ABC's "The View," has also made her disdain for the president clear.

But on Saturday, during a funeral service for her father at the National Cathedral in Washington, Meghan drew applause from her father's friends and colleagues when she seemingly took a swipe at Trump.

"The America of John McCain is generous and welcoming and bold. She is resourceful and confident and secure. She meets her responsibilities. She speaks quietly because she is strong. America does not boast because she has no need to," Meghan declared.

"The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great," she said.

Earlier, she spoke of her father's great sacrifice for America, which included spending more than 5 years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam.

"We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness," Meghan said. "The real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly, nor the opportunistic appropriation of those who live lives of comfort and privilege while he suffered and served."

Trump was not invited to McCain's funeral, the Associated Press confirmed this week.

However, the White House has sent representatives to McCain's funeral services. Vice President Mike Pence eulogized McCain during a service at the Capitol, while Ivanka Trump and Jared Trump — Trump's daughter and son-in-law who also serve as his advisers — attended Saturday's service.
