Cindy and Meghan McCain show unprecedented support for Biden on his win
Once our long, long — okay, not 2000 Gore/Bush kind of long, but still pretty darn long — wait for a president-elect was over, our new POTUS-to-be tweeted: “…I promise you this: I will be a President for all Americans — whether you voted for me or not.” So will this bipartisan olive branch be accepted? Well, if the congratulatory tweets from the surviving family members of Biden’s one-time political opponent are any predictor, then yes, our painfully divided nation actually does stand some chance of coming together once again.
Within an hour of Biden’s acceptance tweet (speech to come later), his surprising champion Cindy McCain shared her joy at the election’s outcome. McCain, a still-staunch Republican who nevertheless spoke on Biden’s behalf at the DNC, tweeted, “Congratulations to my dear friend and President-elect @JoeBiden Vice-President-elect @KamalaHarris. It’s time to move beyond politics and toward building a stronger America. I know Joe will unify the country toward a better future.”

Cindy wasn’t the only member of the McCain family to give a shout-out to the man whose running mate beat out John McCain in the 2008 election. Meghan, a rather untraditional Republican herself, tweeted: “Congratulations Mr. President! @JoeBiden — one of the truly decent and moral men I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing. Please lead our nation bravely towards healing and bipartisanship.” She went on to add, “Only a very personal note — I am relieved and look forward to having a president who respects POW’s who have been captured… (*I had to say it)”
One man Meghan McCain has no sympathy for, however, is the lame duck whose bid for a second term in office just went down in flames: “President Trump put so many Americans through completely unnecessary and sadistic emotional pain — time and time again for no other reason than he is a sick person. Now he wants to have a pity party because America is done with it? There’s no crying in baseball, snowflakes!” After all, should Mr. Trump and his family members stage any public meltdowns in the days and weeks before he leaves office, remember that Meghan called it first.
