Arizona Senator John McCain is hogging headlines for all the wrong reasons. The former Republican presidential candidate, McCain looked disoriented during former FBI director John Comey hearing.
The way he put questions before ex FBI boss, the way he talked and the way he called John Comey as President Comey left many people wondering as to what was wrong with one of the top Republican leaders.
At one point during his questioning of Comey, the former Army veteran said, “So you reached a conclusion in the case of Mr. Comey – President Comey – er, President Trump you have an ongoing investigation, so you’ve got one candidate who you’re done with and another candidate that you have a long way to go, is that correct?”
As many people were speculating as to what was wrong with John McCain, he said that he had watched the Arizona Diamondbacks match till very late in the night and so the confusion. While this may satisfy many Republican supporters, many others may find it not a satisfactory answer. People at such high level and during such important meetings don’t make such mistakes.
Senator McCain is married to Cindy Lou Hensley McCain. His wife, who is 18 years younger than him runs a huge business that is worth hundreds of millions of dollars, is a well known philanthropist and humanitarian.
Cindy McCain was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, as the daughter of wealthy beer distributor Jim Hensley. She got bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Southern California and opted to become a special education teacher. She is the second wife of the Arizona Senator and the two got married in 1980. From 1988 to 1995, she founded and operated a nonprofit organization, the American Voluntary Medical Team, which organized trips by medical personnel to disaster-stricken or war-torn third-world areas. In 2000, she became chair of the now $300 million-a-year Hensley & Co. following her father’s death. It is one of the largest Anheuser-Busch beer distributors in the United States. She does not have operational control of Hensley, and Anheuser-Busch considers her to be an absentee owner.
There have been rumors that President Trump may appoint Cindy McCain in a senior position in the State Department. A report in The Hill says, “The Trump administration is expected to appoint Cindy McCain, the wife of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), to a role in the State Department, The Associated Press reported Thursday…Which position McCain could step into is not yet clear, though one potential option could be as an ambassador-at-large…By placing Cindy McCain in a senior role in his administration, Trump could deescalate tensions between himself and conservative foreign policy establishment figures, such as McCain and fellow GOP hawk Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.).
