John McCain’s Family Makes Tear-Jerking Health Update Announcement (DETAILS)

-

We need more people in Congress like Senator John McCain (R-AZ). He puts what is best for the country before party, a concept which is rare if not virtually extinct. McCain has had the courage to stand up to Donald Trump, when the other Republicans fall in line like sheep. If anyone can beat cancer, he will. His daughter, Meghan McCain, gave us an update.

In an interview with CNN’s The Van Jones Show, his daughter, Meghan McCain offered us all hope:

‘It’s easy to get very cynical right now. And it’s easy to get very jaded. I’ve certainly found myself going to places like that, that I didn’t think I was really capable of in the past 2½ years.’

The View co-host and daughter of Senator McCain was “not a huge Trump supporter,” but she voted for him anyway:

‘(I decided to) try and be as unemotional as possible in analyzing him and his presidency. I don’t think I suffer from Trump derangement syndrome in a sense that I can separate the man from the White House. I still believe that the White House trumps — no pun intended — trumps everything politically that he’s doing.’

The younger McCain compared Trump to her father. In 2008, then Republican presidential candidate John McCain held a member of the audience responsible for calling then-candidate Barack Obama an”Arab:”

‘I do think that there is a lot of gray zone with Trump supporters, and I would like both of us — myself included because I’m certainly guilty of this as well — to stop throwing around the horrible allegations and name-calling.’

Meghan McCain said that she does not:

‘Go a day without someone bringing up (that) moment. I was there when it happened, I remember it incredibly vividly and thinking, “This is a moment that you know, he’s really not going to give in to what certain advisers are telling him to…there were a lot of people really trying to get my dad to go (against Obama) with … you’re a Muslim, you’re not an American aspect of that.’

The senator’s daughter said:

‘I can remember thinking that it was a morally amazing and beautiful moment, but that maybe there would be people in the Republican Party that would be quite angry.’

Jones asked her if there were other Republicans with her father’s form of courage, and she replied:

‘(It) doesn’t win elections anymore. I think about that moment and where we’re at politically a lot, and I do think that if I can go back in time, and my dad could do it all over again, and he would say, “Build the wall, whatever, President Obama is a Muslim!” — all the incendiary comments that have sort of come forth — it would not be worth it. I would still say, don’t do it.’

The View host did not know if “Trumpism” would flood the Republican party:

‘As much as I want to believe there’s this room for more independent, more moderate Republicans, I just don’t know if Trumpism is leaving any time soon, and it’s more than likely he will run for president again.’

As to whether “Trumpism” would run over the Republican party, McCain did not know:

‘As much as I want to believe there’s this room for more independent, more moderate Republicans, I just don’t know if Trumpism is leaving any time soon, and it’s more than likely he will run for president again.’
