Cindy McCain endorses Biden

There are some bloggers who regard the upcoming votes as “baked.” Indeed, very little seems to change the results of several polls showing Biden with about an 8-point lead over Trump. But this could be the exception.

Fox news reports that Cindy McCain endorses Biden: ‘We are Republicans, yes, but Americans foremost’. McCain: ‘There’s only one candidate in this race who stands up for our values as a nation, and that is Joe Biden’

Cindy McCain, wife of the late Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. announced late Tuesday that she is breaking from her husband’s party to support Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

"My husband John lived by a code: country first. We are Republicans, yes, but Americans foremost. There’s only one candidate in this race who stands up for our values as a nation, and that is @JoeBiden,” McCain said in a tweet.

Biden thanked McCain on Twitter, and said that the 2020 presidential election “is bigger than any one political party,” echoing a common theme throughout the democrat’s candidacy.

“Cindy — I’m deeply honored to have your support and your friendship. This election is bigger than any one political party,” Biden said. “It requires all of us to come together as one America to restore the soul of the nation. Together, we’ll get it done.”

Cindy McCain’s endorsement followed the announcement by Biden during a virtual fundraiser Tuesday, that he won her support following The Atlantic report where President Trump was allegedly quoted denigrating veteran soldiers as “losers” and “suckers.”

“Joe and I don’t always agree on the issues, and I know he and John certainly had some passionate arguments, but he is a good and honest man,” Cindy McCain added during a series of tweets Tuesday night. “He will lead us with dignity.”

He will be a commander in chief that the finest fighting force in the history of the world can depend on, because he knows what it is like to send a child off to fight,” Cindy McCain said.

Predictably Trump fired back just extending the trash talk he laid on former Senator (and bonafide hero) John McCain. The Daily Mail reports:

Trump tweeted that Cindy McCain ‘can have Sleepy Joe,’ who he described as the late Senator John McCain’s ‘lapdog.’

‘I hardly know Cindy McCain other than having put her on a Committee at her husband’s request,’ Trump wrote on Wednesday morning. ‘Joe Biden was John McCain’s lapdog. So many BAD decisions on Endless Wars & the V.A., which I brought from a horror show to HIGH APPROVAL.’

Cindy McCain brushed off President Donald Trump slamming her for endorsing his political rival Joe Biden, saying she didn’t have a response to his insults.

Associated Press mocked for calling Cindy McCain’s Biden endorsement ‘stunning rebuke’ of Trump ‘It would be stunning if she endorsed Trump,’ one Twitter user pointed out.

And pouring salt on Trump’s wounded ego:

McCain’s daughter, “The View” co-host Meghan McCain has vowed that she will not vote for Trump, but has declined to say whether she will vote for Biden, vote for a third party or write in someone’s name.
