10 years ago, John McCain was a Warmonger.
Now the DNC is pushing the narrative of his "unlikely" friendship with Sleep Joe Biden.
His widow is front and center in this new campaign highlighting Biden's Bi-Partisan likeability.
From The Hill:
Cindy McCain, the widow of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), will work to boost Joe Biden at the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday night, contributing to a video highlighting the relationship between her late husband and the former vice president.
An advance clip of the video focuses on how Biden met John McCain when the latter was assigned to be a military aide to the then-Delaware senator on his overseas trips, a relationship that evolved into an “unlikely friendship.”
“It was a friendship that shouldn’t have worked. John, a former Navy pilot, just released from a North Vietnamese prison. Joe, a young senator from Delaware. But in the 1970s, Joe was assigned a military aide for a trip overseas,” a female narrator says in the video, followed by a clip of Biden ribbing John McCain over carrying his bags.
“John and Joe traveled thousands of miles together,” the narrator states. “The families got to know each other, gathering for picnics in the Biden’s backyard."
"They would just sit and joke. It was like a comedy show sometimes to watch the two of them," Cindy McCain says in audio included in the ad.
While Cindy McCain is not anticipated to offer an explicit endorsement of Biden, the video marks her strongest show of support yet for his White House bid.
The advance clip was first shared with The Associated Press.
Cindy McCain and her daughter Meghan McCain have emerged as vociferous critics of President Trump, with Meghan McCain, a co-host on ABC's "The View," hinting she’ll vote for Biden."
And from NBC News:
Unlike other Republicans, who used their slots at the convention to rebuke President Donald Trump, McCain's spot focused on how Biden, as well as her late husband, practiced what's now seen as a rarity in Washington, D.C. — bipartisanship.
"It was a style of legislating and leadership that you don't find much anymore," McCain says in the video, titled "An Unlikely Friendship."
A moment later, the video's narrator recalled John McCain's history of bipartisanship, detailing the moment when McCain, R-Ariz., voted against repealing the Affordable Care Act with a thumbs-down gesture that has enraged Trump for years.
"When million of Americans were faced with losing their health insurance, it was Joe's friend who saved Obamacare by crossing the aisle," the narrator said in the video.
Earlier in the video, McCain recalled the camaraderie between Biden and her husband, who died in August 2018.
"They would just sit and joke," McCain said. "It was like a comedy show sometimes to watch the two of them."
McCain, in a tweet before Tuesday night's convention proceedings that included a clip of the video, wrote: "My husband and Vice President Biden enjoyed a 30+ year friendship dating back to before their years serving together in the Senate, so I was honored to accept the invitation from the Biden campaign to participate in a video celebrating their relationship."
The real question is, why shouldn't their friendship have worked?
Both spent decades enriching themselves and courting influence at the expense of American workers and taxpayers.
Both voted for war after war after oppressive crime bill.
Both were part of the same Beltway cabal consolidating power for them and them alone while they bled America dry.
Sounds like a match made in heaven, to me.
