Cindy McCain: ‘Proud’ I Helped Biden Win — Couldn’t Deal with Four More Years of Trump

Cindy McCain, the spouse of the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), said Friday on ABC’s “The View” that she was “proud” she helped President Joe Biden win the 2020 presidential election with her endorsement.

Co-host Joy Behar said, “You famously crossed party lines and took a lot of heat to endorse Joe Biden for president in 2020. Were you surprised by how much pushback you got, and how big a leap was it for you to put yourself out there like that? That must have been rough.”

McCain said, “Well, you know, for me it was, you know, I knew the other candidate was not right. I knew we couldn’t deal with four more years of the other candidate, and so for me it was an easy decision because I knew what was right. In my mind, and in my heart, I felt like I was doing what was right for the country. I still believe that today.”

She added, “As far as taking heat, I knew I was going to take heat. There was no doubt that was going to happen. So you know, I pushed back pretty good on them. I’m just proud to be — to have been some assistance to a man that I believe is a good president and is leading this country in the right direction and practices civility, and honor and decency as he governs and that to me is most important.”
