Late Senator John McCain (AZ) is a war hero who served his country with honor for the vast majority of his life. By refusing to leave his fellow soldiers behind during the Vietnam war and enduring endless amounts of torture, McCain put his true character on display.
While it is evident that McCain swung violently left on certain issues (even refusing to repeal Obamacare shortly after Donald Trump became president), every American owes him a debt of gratitude.
Let’s be honest: Trump was entirely wrong when he said of McCain in 2015, “I like people who weren’t captured.” That was pretty bad.
McCain and Trump never saw eye-to-eye, prompting the senator’s outspoken daughter, Meghan, to constantly attack POTUS in defense of her father.
Now, it looks like the McCain family will support former Vice President Joe Biden over 45 come 2020.
From Washington Examiner:
The late Sen. John McCain’s family plans to support former Vice President Joe Biden’s White House bid, backing the Democrat not only in his party’s crowded primary race but also in a general election matchup with President Trump, the Washington Examiner has learned.Advertisement - story continues below
In an extraordinary snub to Trump, who derided McCain’s Vietnam War service and mocked him even after his death last August at age 81, the McCain family is preparing to break with the Republican Party. McCain represented the party in Congress for 35 years and was chosen as its presidential nominee in 2008, losing to Barack Obama.
Sources close to both Biden’s presidential campaign and the McCains said that at some point during the White House race, McCain’s widow Cindy, 64, and daughter Meghan, 34, a host on “The View,” will offer their public support in the hope of removing Trump from office in 2020.
McCain apparently regretted choosing Sarah Palin as his vice presidential running mate in 2008.
Why he made that known publicly makes little sense, considering McCain was going to lose the ‘08 race unless his VP was Barack Obama himself.
Even wilder is that Palin was not invited to McCain’s funeral.
The former governor of Alaska recently broke her silence.
From Daily Wire:
In an appearance on “Good Morning Britain” on Monday, the former Alaska governor said the funeral snub felt like a “gut punch.”
Palin said, “I was kind of surprised to be publicly disinvited to the funeral. I think that was an unnecessary step. [The McCain family] didn’t have to embarrass me and embarrass others. And it wasn’t just me, it was other good people from our campaign back in 2008 who were very, very loyal to Sen. McCain, and worked with him and for him for many years, and they weren’t invited to the funeral.“
Who does Palin think disinvited her?
Palin noted, “My guess is, it came from Cindy. She is very protective of John’s memory and legacy. She’s also a grieving widow. I think she wants to get through this as best she can. Donald Trump and Sarah Palin were not served official notice outright. I want to make that clear. It wasn’t a no-trespass order. They won’t be turned away by guards if they show up at the funeral.“
