So much media BS, so little time… – Reuters put out a “breaking” report last night reporting the fact that Cindy McCain, the vain, grasping 2nd wife of the dead John McCain, is – gasp! – not going to endorse President Donald Trump for re-election! Who could have possibly seen that one coming?
— Reuters (@Reuters) September 23, 2020
Seriously, why is this news? Reuters describes Ms. McCain as a “prominent Republican.” But is that really true? What evidence is there that Cindy McCain is in fact a Republican at all, other than possibly a voter registration card in Arizona? Hell, Jake Tapper could go register to vote and claim to be a Republican, but that wouldn’t mean he actually is one.
It’s like when Cher, Rob Reiner and Barbra Streisand dress up in their matching wicked witch costumes for their annual Halloween party – does putting on those costumes mean they really are witches?
Ok, don’t answer that.
The point here is, why is this news? Why would one of the major newswire services publish a report about this? It would be “news” if anyone outside of Washington, DC gave a rat’s ass what Cindy McCain thinks, because her endorsement of Creepy Uncle McWifeMolester might influence others to do the same. But the truth is nobody outside of Washington, DC give’s a rat’s ass what Cindy McCain thinks; thus, no one is going to be influenced by her endorsement.
So, again, why is this even a story? You know why. We all know why. This is what the corrupt news media does to any Republican presidential candidate.
For the corrupt Democrat toadies in the media, this is also just another continuation of the glorification of John McCain, done for the simple fact that McCain was both a traitor to his party and Arizona voters over a span of decades, and a prominent Trump hater. McCain thus became the media’s favorite fake Republican for the simple fact that he consistently provided corrupt media outlets with a tool with which to beat first George W. Bush and later Donald Trump over the head. He provided them with the pretense to claim that those President’s weren’t really doing the right thing because a prominent member of their own party was criticizing them.
All of that media/McCain love affair flew right out the window, of course, when McCain tragically became the GOP’s presidential nominee to hand the presidency to Barack Hussein Obama in 2008. For the better part of that year, McCain was suddenly nothing more than another evil Republican in the media’s eyes, a racist, a homophobe, a misogynist, and any other -phobe or -ist they could think to tag him with. He was running against not just a Democrat, but The ONE, and thus had to be smeared and demonized.
But all the corrupt reporters flew right back to the McCain love nest as soon as the campaign ended because they really do need a pet Republican in the U.S. Senate, a role that is now comfortably filled by Milquetoast Mitt Romney.
The thing is, once you get past all of the media idolization, the 9 days of funerals and memorials, the undeserved lying in state at the Capitol, John McCain was just another senator, and not really even an especially accomplished one. His one landmark piece of legislation in over 30 years in congress, the McCain/Feingold campaign finance reform act, has opened the door for billions of dollars in dark money flowing into the political process, much of it from foreign sources, as we have seen in every Democrat presidential campaign in this century.
Worse, his efforts to intervene in foreign policy helped involve the U.S. in 19-year quagmires in Afghanistan and Iraq, and helped Barack Obama and John Kerry create a Syrian “rebel” group that ultimately became ISIS.
McCain was no more accomplished as a Senator than a Sonny Perdue or a Kirsten Gillibrand, but because he was a shameless, self-promoting “maverick” who has happy to show up on MSNBC twice a week to bash W or Trump, the media loved him.
Thus, McCain’s grasping wife Cindy, who begged President Trump for an ambassadorship and was denied it, is still able to garner the attention of her dead hubby’s adoring fans at Reuters whenever she continues her husband’s Republican-bashing habit.
It’s despicable, and really just kind of stupid, but that is what this country’s mainstream news media is.
That is all.
