Cindy McCain narrated a video at the Democratic National Convention last night, highlighting her late husband’s enduring friendship with Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
Here’s a clip:
Though it’s no surprise McCain isn’t supporting Trump given her family’s acrimonious relationship with the president, insiders thought it unlikely she would all but endorse Biden given her son’s political aspirations.
The Hill’s Tal Axelrod reports:
An advance clip of the video focuses on how Biden met John McCain when the latter was assigned to be a military aide to the then-Delaware senator on his overseas trips, a relationship that evolved into an “unlikely friendship.”
Trump first began feuding with the McCains in 2015 when he said John McCain, who served as a senator for more than 30 years after being held as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam, wasn’t a hero “because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”
The president also repeatedly hammered the late senator in appearances across the country after John McCain voted against a GOP plan to repeal the Obama-era Affordable Care Act.
Cindy McCain’s tacit endorsement follows four members of the Never Trump movement appearing the previous night in support of Biden.
Do you think Trump went too far when he insulted McCain and other soldiers for being taken prisoner, or are the McCain comments justified given his dubious allegiance to conservatism when it mattered? Let us know in the comments below!
