According to John Gizzi of Newsmax, political observers in Arizona believe that as Sen. John McCain takes his leave of the Senate, they expect that he will be replaced by none other than his wife, Cindy McCain in the halls of Congress’ upper chamber. Gizzi spoke to Republicans and political pundits in the state, and they agreed nearly to a person that Cindy was the individual most likely to carry on her husband’s legacy in Washington.
The revelation that Cindy McCain will most likely take her husband’s seat in the Senate was not the only interesting bit of news involving members of the war veteran’s family. According to his daughter, Meghan, she was furious with her father for leaving his recovery room after brain surgery to make the trip to Washington for an important vote…one every Republican will remember for a very long time. In an interview with the documentary filmmakers behind the new HBO movie, “John McCain: For Whom the Bell Tolls,” Meghan said that she wanted her father to skip his (ultimately damning) vote on Obamacare repeal last summer.
“He said, ‘I have to get back for the healthcare bill’ and I said, ‘What could possibly happen if he gets on a plane?’ and the doctor said he would like hemorrhage and it can be dangerous if he still has air in his brain, and all this crazy stuff,” Meghan says in the documentary. “So I freaked out and I screamed at everyone that he couldn’t get on the plane and that I didn’t agree with it. And my dad snapped at me and said, ‘It’s my life and it’s my choice.’”
And if I want to use one of my last votes in the Senate as payback for a snide comment President Trump once made about my war hero status, then dagummit, I’m gonna do just that!
Well, water under the bridge, we suppose.
It is perhaps unfortunate that Cindy will supposedly be taking her husband’s place in the Senate, because she’s undoubtedly harboring all the same grudges against TrumpWorld as he is. Once more, Arizona will have two senators who are deeply opposed to the new conservative revolution – the one that is actually getting things done, as opposed to the ideological complainfest that had preceded it for fifteen years. Flake will be gone soon enough, of course, but we’re certain that Arizonians will find some other NeverTrumper to put in his place.
Must have something to do with all of that dry heat.
