Cindy McCain Denies Reports She’ll Support Joe Biden

Cindy McCain Denies Reports She’ll Support Joe Biden

It’s not a secret the McCains despise Trump.

Former Vice President Joe Biden reportedly will announce his 2020 presidential candidacy sometime on Thursday after months of rumors and speculation.

According to a Washington Examiner bombshell, he may have received a huge support system. It looks like the family of the late Sen. John McCain will support him “in hope of removing Trump from office in 2020.”

However, Cindy McCain tweeted that she has no plans to get “involved in presidential politics.”

The information comes from unnamed sources, but honestly, it would not shock me if this becomes true. The McCains and Trump do not get along.

From The Washington Examiner:

A former McCain campaign official with close ties to the family said support for Biden was a given, but they needed to calculate how they could best help the former vice president. Both Cindy and Meghan McCain remain Republicans, and one consideration is whether endorsing Biden in the Democratic primary could do him more harm than good. “It’s undeniable that Joe Biden and the McCain family have a very close, personal relationship. It’s about what’s good for him [Biden].”

Another McCain family source said there had been discussions with the Bidens about his 2020 run, which is expected to be announced on Thursday. “They talk regularly and have been supportive of his run,” the source said. “The question is going to be timing and coordinating with the Biden campaign. There are a lot of moving parts there and [Biden’s campaign is] not necessarily organized. I wouldn’t expect a formal family endorsement because some of McCain’s family is still in the military, but I do expect Cindy to speak out at some point.”

The source said they expected Meghan McCain to speak out in favor of Biden should he get the nomination, but a Cindy McCain endorsement could come sooner.

I updated the title due to this tweet from Cindy McCain:

It doesn’t mean others will stay out.

The Bidens and McCains have always been close, but grew closer when doctors diagnosed McCain with brain cancer:

The families were drawn further together when McCain came down with brain cancer, the same illness Biden’s son Beau died of at the age of 46. During an emotional appearance with Meghan McCain on The View while McCain was ill but still alive, Biden sought to comfort her, saying of him and McCain, “We’re like two brother who were somehow raised by different fathers or something, because of our points of view.” After her father’s death, Meghan McCain said Biden and his family helped her through her grief.

Biden gave a eulogy at McCain’s funeral, saying he loved him and considered him a brother.

As The Washington Examiner pointed out, the feud between Trump and the late McCain began in 2000 during the presidential campaigns when “Trump questioned McCain’s military service by proclaiming he was ‘captured’ during the Vietnam War.”

Trump amped up the feud in the 2016 elections:

Tensions increased when Trump ran for the GOP nomination during the 2016 presidential election, saying McCain was “weak” on immigration and implied he was an “incompetent” senator. Trump remains livid about McCain’s role in disseminating the “dossier” drawn up by former British spy Christopher Steele containing unproven allegations about collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in 2016 and Trump watching prostitutes urinate on a bed in a Moscow hotel room in 2013.

McCain skipped the Republican convention in 2016, when Trump received their party’s presidential nomination. After the release of the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape in October 2016, McCain said it was “impossible to continue to offer even conditional support for his candidacy” and that he could vote for neither Hillary Clinton nor Trump. McCain on Election Day refused to say he voted for Trump, while Meghan McCain said she voted for Evan McMullin, an independent.

The feud hit its climax when McCain “helped doom the Republican attempt to repeal Obamacare.”

Meghan has also never held back her disdain for Trump, but I give her credit for going with him when he does something right or realizing the truth when it comes to the Mueller report.

She criticized Trump over his tweet on National Former Prisoner of War Day. In March, after more attacks on her father from Trump, Meghan said she doesn’t “expect decency and compassion from the Trump family.”

Biden led in polls until recently when Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) took over. I agree with my coworker Stacey Matthews that Biden will likely see a bump in the numbers once he announces.

I don’t like his politics, but I’ve always liked Biden. I believe he may be the one Democrat who could give Trump a run for his money. Will the McCain support help? Ehhhh…hard to say. I wouldn’t be shocked if it doesn’t help Biden.

I never seen so many faux conservatives abandon there “beliefs” in such a short time. Thank you Donald Trump.

What “Eddie Baby” said, squared.

Our political “elite” is more concerned with their peer “elite” relationships than the voters they represent supposedly.

    Touche!

    Plus the “elitists” are more loyal to other globalist elitists overseas than they are to their own citizens.

    Just look at those sad examples PM May and PM Merkel.

Funny, she seemed to like her father’s politics, which often – far too often – looked similar to Biden’s other than McCain never marching in lockstep with them.

Trump has exposed the supposed “conservatives” who do everything against him including supporting Hillary, one of the most vile politicians this nation has ever seen. That tells you the truth about them far more than then their so called political credentials.

It also speaks volumes about their so called principles.

Will she vote for Mittens Romney, Bill Weld, Larry Hogan, Joe Kasich? My guess is Mittens since he is so warm and cuddly, and rolls over at the drop of a hat.

Cindy McCain just recently returned from Ukraine. Her sudden interest in Ukrainian democracy/politics being more than a little bit suspicious.

I’m not exactly sure why Ukraine became such a focal point – a graft nexus for American politicians- both previous to, and after Euromaidan kicked off.

Late Senator John McCain took a special interest in Ukraine. His staff took a special interest in meeting with Ukrainian embassy officials regarding the Steele dossier previous to giving the doc to the FBI. Odd behavior.

Joe Biden’s son is entangled in Ukrainian energy production and IMF funds in Ukraine – the Ukrainian energy sector being the prime source of graft and corruption in Ukranian political life. Julia Tomoshenko? The former president and energy sector kingpin ran afoul of Putin and his cadre and was thrown into a psych hospital and shot full of thorazine for a few years and was only released after the bloodless EuroMaidan coup.

We really need a special prosecuter to comb through this stuff because something very strange is going on between Kyiv and Washington.

Translation: The McCains will vote for whomever they think will defeat the hated Orange Man Bad.

That is all.

Just another McCain POS!

    Family favoritism (father and grandfather were 4 star admirals) probably got McCain into the naval academy (where he graduated fifth from last in his class) and again probably prevented his removal from pilot duties despite several serious aviation accidents. Now his progeny seek to continue the long McCain tradition of profiting from their family name.

    This country is better off without John McCain. He was a dishonest narcissist and malign influence on American politics.

Why should anyone care? Really, who are these people and what have they accomplished as individuals? What have we become that being related to or otherwise attached to an “important” person replaces actually DOING things? It’s like the swamp just endlessly creates new swamp creatures from the muck. (And Kevin McCarthy comes to mind as I type this. It’s ridiculous.)

I’m sorry, was there some kind of problem with Cindy McCain supporting Joe Biden for President if that is what she wishes to do?

    For someone who has claimed to be a conservative Republican, support for Biden would be . . . problematical. Still, since the GOPe itself prefers to be ruled by the Democrat Socialists it is not surprising. If she chooses to support Biden, if she chooses to support AOC [which would not surprise me] it is her right and choice. But it is not what anyone who is conservative would do. Her and her family are not on our country’s side. Just recognizing it.

    No, none at all. The woman married to the POS McCain should support a democrat since that’s what they are. Commies all.

    I’m sorry, was there some kind of problem with LI commenting about a “republican” supporting Joe Biden for President if that is what LI wishes to do?

The only reason I voted for the McCain ticket is because Sarah Palin shared it with him.

He was a horrible senator.

He was part of the new world order with Hillary, Romney, Obama, et al.

Cindy McCain wore a $300,000 dress to the GOP convention.

The good news is that the McCains have zero political influence whatsoever.

    Dying was the only honorable thing McCain ever did.

      Barry in reply to bw222. | April 24, 2019 at 9:09 pm

      BS, he didn’t even do that with honor. He is, and his family are, despicable.

        Edward in reply to Barry. | April 25, 2019 at 9:59 am

        Yes, there is certainly a case to be made that he carried his feud with the President to the grave. Like many, I only voted for McCain because Palin was on the ticket. He and his campaign staff mistreated Palin, but we’ve come to understand that McCain despised those to the Right of his political (Maverick) position.

Gee, I was hoping the Beer Baroness and Lard @$$ would tell me whom to vote for.

Why does conservative media run this worthless RINO diatribe about the two awful female McCain’s. Find something more worthy to report.
