Biden supporter Cindy McCain, becomes major liability
Last November we posted an odd Thanksgiving greeting from James Hensley McCain, who never previously thought to wish us well. Greeting us as “Dear Friends,” his father’s slippery salutation to those of us who were anything but, outs Jimmy McCain as a fellow with political aspirations as we noted in, “Another McCain seeking a political perch? Spare us.”
He wrote, “As our family prepares to celebrate Thanksgiving on Thursday, I wanted to take the time to thank you for supporting my Dad through the years. As we continue my Dad’s fight to advance freedom, prosperity, security and human dignity for the benefit of all, we would be grateful to have you join our efforts.”
He was assuming a lot. Conservatives were never fans of the devious John McCain who was more comfortable with democrats Ted Kennedy and Hillary Clinton while shunning conservative principles opting out of AZ GOP Statutory meetings attended by most Republican office holders. When ”Dad” finally attended a state meeting with Jeff Flake who opted out of running for reelection when polling showed him with an 18% approval rating in his home state, Dad and Flake were greeted by turned backs, boos, and walk outs, based on his ignoring the backbone of the party and pushing his democrat and Republicrat Gang of Eight pro-amnesty for illegal aliens. John McCain was also censured as was Cindy for her allegiance to Joe Biden…who rewarded her with an ambassadorship to the United Nations Agencies for Food and Agriculture. Cindy and her daughter (known on this site as Mega) and Flake, all endorsed Biden. The McCain’s unconcealed rage directed at President Trump is based in their jealous ire that businessman Trump won the presidency, the office John McCain regarded as his due, though the nation’s top job forever eluded him. For his Biden allegiance, Flake was gifted with an appropriate ambassadorship to Turkey.
Now James (Jimmy) Hensley McCain is back in greeting mode, this time wishing us a late Happy New Year, as he once again shares memories of his dad. He’s obviously gearing up for an announcement of his own, though he’s never shown any interest in the Arizona Republican Party. Jimmy’s also hustling for donations to the McCain Institute. It’s a sure bet that Jimmy has got a case of the runs, which will be characterized as a tribute to his dad.
This 2008 New Republic article, “Made Man: How Cindy Hensley invented John McCain,” provides the background of how John McCain’s well-connected second wife launched John McCain’s political career. There’s little doubt she is now advising her son James Hensley McCain in carrying on the tradition.
