Showing a gratitude that can be expected by an underhanded career politician, John McCain has rescinded his endorsement of Donald Trump. The dyspeptic old fart is a month away from sealing the deal on his sixth term in the U.S. Senate and remains one of the strongest arguments for term limits alive today. Like his fellow R.A.T.s, McCain is looking to exploit the ginned-up firestorm over an old tape of Trump boasting about sex to sabotage his own party’s candidate.
According to The Guardian “John McCain withdraws support for Donald Trump over groping boasts”:
Senator John McCain, the 2008 Republican nominee for US president, has become the latest senior figure in the party to withdraw his endorsement of Donald Trump as more of the candidate’s offensive comments about women were aired in the US.
The Arizona senator issued a statement declaring it “impossible to continue to offer even conditional support” for Trump, in the wake of leaked video and audio showing Trump boasting about making sexual advances toward women without their consent.
“Cindy and I will not vote for Donald Trump,” McCain said in a statement that included his wife. “I have never voted for a Democratic presidential candidate and we will not vote for Hillary Clinton. We will write in the name of some good conservative Republican who is qualified to be president.”
That would be the same Cindy who the fossilized McCain drew criticism for when he called her a “cunt” which trumps the Donald’s use of the term “pussy” in the hierarchy of derogatory terms.
Such an ingrate after Trump gave him a big helping hand by endorsing McCain in his August primary.
