A former Trump campaign spokesperson demanded that recently-deceased Sen. John McCain answer questions about a controversial dossier — and immediately drew ridicule.
Trump surrogate Katrina Pierson tweeted Thursday evening that McCain “still refuses to answer questions about his role” in the dossier alleging a number of damning ties between Donald Trump and Russia written by former MI6 spy Christopher Steele.

The link in the tweet was from 2017 — before the senator and former presidential candidate passed away — but was nonetheless sent out on December 20, 2018.
“Who wants to tell her?” writer Dustin Giebel tweeted before joking that Pierson is “screaming at McCain’s gravestone, ‘”ANSWER ME G*DDAMNIT.'”

ABC News podcaster Matt Bevin, meanwhile, mused that the former Trump campaign aide is “in her office screaming questions at a Ouija board.”
Another user noted, in vulgar fashion, that Pierson may have messed up her Hootsuite tweet-scheduling settings — or at least hoped she had.
… when you fuck up your @hootsuite settings.

He was also weirdly absent from both HW Bush and John McCain’s funerals so he has to be up to something

It's rarely a good idea to pass around an article from last year as if it's new, but an article about John McCain "refusing to answer questions" might be about the worst possible choice. https://t.co/TyWkLwSiCP
