Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” conservative radio host Bill Cunningham called Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) a “backstabber” for his vote against the Republican health care plan.
Cunningham said, “When he went to Youngstown, thousands and thousands showed up. If he would come here to Cincinnati, the same thing would happen. I don’t think any president after six or seven months could travel the way the Trumpster has traveled, with the outpouring of love and affection. Despite the fact that the back stabber, O.J. style, who is Sen. John McCain, who began his public life as a hero and is ending up giving a thumbs down and a middle finger to the middle class by not repealing Obamacare.”
“What happened a couple of days ago is terrible,” he added. “I think Trump has lost a little support in the periphery. The heart and soul of America that beats this great country, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa. This is where real Americans, normal Americans live.”
Cunningham and McCain have a history. In 2008, during an introduction speech for then-Republican presidential candidate John McCain in Cincinnati, Cunningham referred to then-Democratic candidate Barack Obama with his full name “Barack Hussein Obama.”
McCain later responded by condemning Cunningham for those remarks.
