Megan McCain is no fan of Donald Trump. And that’s not a surprise — it runs in the family.
The senator and the President had a history of conflict, and Meghan’s railed against the Big Chees on The View relentlessly (holy cow, see here).
And when Meghan rails, she rails really big (here).
Now the McCain family is staking their anti-Trump claim for 2020 with an endorsement of former vice president — and gays-are-security-risks (here) senator — Joe “the Mitts” Biden.
Speaking of, here’s a fantastic video for ya:
Back to the McCains: As per the Washington Examiner, they’re preparing to say “bon voyage” to their erstwhile-beloved GOP. Preferring Touchy Joe, for Meghan and clan, those letters now stand for Grope Other Party:
In an extraordinary snub to Trump, who derided McCain’s Vietnam War service and mocked him even after his death last August at age 81, the McCain family is preparing to break with the Republican Party. McCain represented the party in Congress for 35 years and was chosen as its presidential nominee in 2008, losing to Barack Obama.
Sources close to both Biden’s presidential campaign and the McCains said that at some point during the White House race, McCain’s widow Cindy, 64, and daughter Meghan, 34, a host on The View, will offer their public support in the hope of removing Trump from office in 2020.
That’s considerable news, though not necessarily a shock. The family is determined to take out Trump:
A former McCain campaign official with close ties to the family said support for Biden was a given, but they needed to calculate how they could best help the former vice president. Both Cindy and Meghan McCain remain Republicans, and one consideration is whether endorsing Biden in the Democratic primary could do him more harm than good. “It’s undeniable that Joe Biden and the McCain family have a very close, personal relationship. It’s about what’s good for him [Biden].”
JB’s expected to announce an attempt at positioning his butt into the most powerful desk chair in the world on Thursday. And Sen. McCain’s widow is ready and waitin’, Jack:
Another McCain family source said there had been discussions with the Bidens about his 2020 run, which is expected to be announced on Thursday. “They talk regularly and have been supportive of his run,” the source said. “The question is going to be timing and coordinating with the Biden campaign. There are a lot of moving parts there and [Biden’s campaign is] not necessarily organized. I wouldn’t expect a formal family endorsement because some of McCain’s family is still in the military, but I do expect Cindy to speak out at some point.”
The source said they expected Meghan McCain to speak out in favor of Biden should he get the nomination, but a Cindy McCain endorsement could come sooner.
2020’s getting interesting, folks. But it remains to be seen whether the Left can let go of Mueller mania and focus on winning. It’s anyone’s guess, but I’m betting on No. If they could’ve let it go, they already would’ve (Meghan seems to think so, too — here).
But in the interest of full disclosure, I’ve been wrong before — I thought rock stars would always wear spandex.
