John McCain’s widow Cindy lauds his friendship with Joe Biden in DNC video

Cindy McCain, the widow of late Republican Sen. John McCain, is expected to throw her weight behind Joe Biden’s presidential bid on Tuesday evening in a video celebrating the two men’s unlikely friendship.

A preview clip released on the Democratic National Convention’s YouTube channel pays tribute to the unusually close bond the pair shared despite working on opposite sides of the aisle in the Senate.

Cindy talks about how her Vietnam War-hero husband met Biden when he was assigned as a military aide to help the then-Delaware senator on an overseas trip, and describes how the McCain and Biden families became close.

While Cindy is not expected to give an explicit endorsement of Biden’s White House bid, she joins a number of Republican figures who are participating in the Democratic event to show the breadth of the anti-Trump movement.

McCain, a towering and respected icon in the GOP and Vietnam War POW, died in 2018 after a battle with brain cancer.

He had an acrimonious relationship with President Trump — with Trump infamously remarking in 2015 that McCain wasn’t a hero because he was captured and taken as a prisoner of war for five years.

The McCain family have been outspoken critics of the president and defenders of Biden, including daughter Meghan McCain, who is a host on “The View.”

Biden comforted Meghan on-air after her father was diagnosed with brain cancer and the two families remain close.

McCain unsuccessfully ran against Barack Obama and Joe Biden in 2008.
