Joe Biden Gets Formal POTUS Endorsement From Cindy McCain; Republican Sen. John McCain Ran Against Ex-VP & Obama In 2008
Joe Biden said today that Cindy McCain is going to officially endorse him in the ex-Vice-President’s bid to toss Donald Trump out of the White House.
“Maybe I shouldn’t say it but I’m about to go on one of these Zooms with John McCain’s wife, who is first time ever is endorsing me because of what he talks about with my son and John’s who are heroes, who served their country, you know he said they’re losers, they’re suckers,” Biden remarked at the end of a virtual fundraiser on Tuesday.
McCain is on track to appear on a variety of morning shows on Wednesday to reiterate the endorsement of her departed husband’s old Senate colleague and rival in the 2008 election, a source close to the campaign tells me. Trump hasn’t responded in a petulant tweet yet, but don’t say we didn’t warn you when he does.
The anti-military service remarks by the ex-Celebrity Apprentice host that Biden is referring to are those first reported in the Atlantic earlier this month. Besides allegedly calling those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country “suckers” and “losers,” the Jeff Goldberg penned piece claims that Trump didn’t want to honor Vietnam POW McCain upon the 2008 GOP standard bearer’s death in 2018. “What the f—- are we doing that for? Guy was a f—-ing loser, the incumbent is said to have declared. Trump and his administration have since derided the article’s claims as “totally false.”
Flags on government buildings were lowered in respect for McCain, but Trump wasn’t invited to Sen. McCain’s near state funeral. Former Presidents George W. Bush and Barak Obama, both of whom faced the Arizona Senator and former Navy pilot at the ballot box, were and spoke from the pulpit.
After all the rancor that went down over the years between Trump and self-described maverick John McCain, there was little doubt about where Cindy McCain was leaning in the 2020 election. McCain’s voice could even be heard in a video at last month’s virtual Democratic National Convention praising the long friendship her Wedding Crashers cameoing husband and Biden had over the decades
While daughter Meghan McCain hasn’t offered a formal endorsement of Biden, The View co-host has made it crystal clear it shouldn’t take “a rocket scientist” to know who she supports. “There’s one man who has made pain in my life a living hell and another man who has literally shepherded me through the grief process,” the younger McCain told Watch What Happens with Andy Cohen in April of this year – as you can see below.
