Cindy McCain: GOP Lacks ‘Voice of Reason’ Since My Husband’s Death

Cindy McCain, the widow of the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ.), believes the Republican Party is without a “voice of reason” since the death of her husband last year.
In an ABC News interview slated to air Wednesday, McCain lamented today’s congressional bipartisanship, saying her late husband stood up to Democrats and Republicans for the sake of breaking gridlock.

“That was a tough torch to carry and, as John said, there were many lonely days because he always said what was on his mind,” McCain recounted.

“I don’t see anybody carrying that mantle at all, I don’t see anyone carrying the voice — the voice of reason,” she added.

Of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), a longtime ally of Sen. McCain who has closely aligned himself with President Trump since the Arizona Republicans passing, McCain refused to speak out against him.

“Lindsey’s a part of my family,” she said. “He’s a good friend and I cannot, [and] will not, be critical of Lindsey.”

“Lindsey has his own political career to worry about and his own political life,” she added. “I would just hope that in the long run, everyone would begin to move in the right direction, including Lindsey or anybody else.”

McCain’s comments come as The McCain Institute readies a social media campaign promoting civility to commemorate Sen. McCain’s August 25th death from glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer.

On Wednesday, McCain previewed the “#ActsofCivility” initiative in the video asking others to “reach across the aisle” and “come together for civil engagement.”

Trumpm has is irght. everybody else needs to re-0align with him, B”H, as the Founders intended for society to function. ratbags ego-driven agenda including Islam, PLO false narrative, Squad4jihad, Obama included, CArter and cronies in the Democrat Party and those who “like” them, ego-drive, without purpose wherever, whomever, need to get back inline, gays, NFL rotten jihadi’s like Sasour, Tlaib, Omar and PLO pro-AntiSemitic Bernie Sanders, throw-backs to ancient prejudices and subjectivity, ought to be tried and found guilty of treason as they are out of line with the Constitution based on belief in the Oneness of G-d and the diversity His Creation united in purpose to do His, and only His Will.
