Meghan McCain and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., go way back — but their relationship appears to be waning.

McCain, the daughter of late Sen. John McCain, has long counted Graham as a close family friend, at one point even likening him to an "uncle" thanks to his close relationship with her father.

"She was upset they were there — I understand that, and she has hard feelings but I know what happened and nobody showed up uninvited," Graham told the newspaper. "I love Meghan McCain and I understand how stressful all this has been for her and those who attack her dad will never be forgiven by her."
