John McCain and Joe Biden served together in the Senate for decades. And despite their political differences, the men had a legendary friendship. Cindy McCain honored that friendship by speaking for Biden during the Democratic National Convention and then publicly supporting the Democrat.
Cindy also knows that when a person runs for president, their children are often scrutinized. On a recent episode of the Skimm’d From the Couch podcast, she discussed Hunter Biden’s recent treatment.
“It’s not supposed to be political and I don’t mean it,” she began, “but in the case of Hunter Biden I don’t care whether you like him or not, whether you agree or disagree. However, the fact is that they once again shamed a man struggling with addiction and the media has taken no responsibility for helping him deal with it. Instead, they made him a mockery of America, and I think that’s just wrong. “
McCain also discussed her often controversial daughter Meghan. “John McCain in a dress, ”she said to Meghan. “We noticed that early on. She gained all of the things that John was so good at, not just confidence, but strength and standing up for what is right and just her vision of the world. I wanted a strong daughter and I got it. I definitely did it to her. She’s gorgeous.”
Chances are that Cindy McCain will remain active in public. It is rumored that Biden is considering appointing her to the US Ambassador to the United Nations World Food Program. If confirmed, she would be the first confirmed Republican nominated by Biden.
