McCain Calls His Wife a “Cunt”

Tuesday, April 8, 2008

RawStory has an interesting article up about Weathervane McCain’s ability to come unglued at inopportune times and even on people he espouses to love and cherish. In this case, he got highly peeved at Cindy, his wife. This excerpt is from a soon to be published book by Cliff Schecter:

Three reporters from Arizona, on the condition of anonymity, also let me in on another incident involving McCain’s intemperateness. In his 1992 Senate bid, McCain was joined on the campaign trail by his wife, Cindy, as well as campaign aide Doug Cole and consultant Wes Gullett. At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain’s hair and said, “You’re getting a little thin up there.” McCain’s face reddened, and he responded, “At least I don’t plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt.” McCain’s excuse was that it had been a long day. If elected president of the United States, McCain would have many long days.

Sounds like McCain has some serious anger management issues.

    McCain calls his wife a slut and the “c” all in one sentence because he had a rough day? This guy is a hot head and suggests to me that he’s deranged. I wonder why this aspect of his personality is swept under the carpet by the media? Does being a former prisoner of war let you get away with anything?

  2. Larry says:

    What a “loving” husband, and if he would show that kind of “love” to his spouse, what kind of “love” would he give to the American people.

  3. Rachel says:

    I have to say I never heard my father call my mother a “cunt.” He told her to shut up from time to time and she him, but never did they use vulgar epithets like this one. I wonder why Cindy puts up with it? She’s loaded and doesn’t rely on John for the income.

  4. FranIAm says:

    Nice. I wonder what he would call Condi, after a hard day, if she were his VP. One shudders to think.

    This is one dangerous man with anger management problems and we don’t need him in charge. Ever. At all.

  5. stradella says:

    If my husband called me that I’d bust him right across his face.

    No man calls me the “C.” You can call me the “N” but you’d better have your running shoes on cuz if you call me the “C” I’m come after you.

  6. Yeah, that whole “McCain / Rice” thing sounds like a new wedding (LOL)… Oh that’s right, we don’t throw rice at weddings anymore – it’s bird seed now. I wonder if the American People would be able to catch that bouquet… ???

    I said months ago before Condi was denying she would be looking for Vee Pee spot – that if she would “heed the call” the Republicans would have the race-gender thing all sewn up with one fell swoop. Let’s just hope it’s an opportunity missed…

    Peace,

    So the Republican party has themselves a candidate who berates his spouse and calls her by a word that 99% of women find to be the most insulting of all words in the English language because he had a bad day? Why isn’t the mainstream media vetting this asswipe? Does service to ones country trump everything? What will it take for the media to call McCain what he is? A angry, psychopathic, war monger.

  8. woyoyo says:

    How do you spell “douchebaggery?”

    J.o.h.n. M.c.C.a.i.n. That’s how.

  9. DCVET says:

    I have been aware of McCain since the late 1980’s and I have heard the rumors about his temper.

    Having been around a lot of veterans over the years, I have developed a keen sense about them and what they’re dealing with, like PTSD.

    The VA, under budget pressure from the Congress, removed the diagnosis of PTSD from the DSM-II, which resulted in the inability of Vietnam veterans to receive benefits or treatment for this condition. It is a very real condition and one I think McCain may very well be suffering from.

  10. feminazi says:

    I can’t imagine my late husband calling me such a name. Not that he didn’t have a temper — phew, did he ever have a temper but we never engaged in this sort of name calling. I honestly think if he had called me this name I would clobbered him in the head with my iron skillet.

  11. taco says:

    I wonder why Cindy puts up with it?

    Because she’s a Stepford wife?

  12. libhomo says:

    Compare this real misogyny to the imaginary misogyny Barack Obama is accused of by some of Ms. Clinton’s more fanatical supporters.

  13. Jim says:

    Yikes! Just who we need as President.

  14. .
    In all fairness, she does have one. ( One assumes.) The man’s well over seventy, maybe he meant to say she has one, not she is one. Are we going to argue over the meaning of “is” again?

    Besides, the real story is that McCain has finally come out of the closet: He reads Somerset Maugham. Wait’ll FoxNews getsa holda THIS!
    .

  15. Amber says:

    Maybe they are in a D/s relationship. In which case, the “c” word would be quite normal, in fact, a term of endearment.

  16. hammerdown says:

    Hillary has a foul mouth, Cheney has a foul mouth, McCain has foul mouth, oh well clean mouth clean body take your pick.

    dang he is deep! please don’t let this fool answer the red phone in the middle of the night.

  19. carmella says:

    mc cain is just mad because he hasn’t seen his wife’s cunt in years…ass wipe!

  20. Alethea says:

    If the reporters truly heard this interchange, it explains why she looks like an abused/battered wife. Look at her stiff stance around him. Even Bill and Hillary “look” more loving and “together” than the McCain’s do! If ANY man calls ANY self-respecting female that word…THEM’S FIGHTIN’ WORDS! There is NO excuse ever. Tired? No way. Total disrespect for her. BADDDDDD news!

  21. John says:

    …this is such crap.

    McCain fan or not, this story is completely unjustified and is probably made up. Just like all the Obama tie ins with his psycho ministers. So much of it is embellished. I take neither side…but much of this is BS.

  22. Christopher says:

    Hi John,

    The accepted rule for standards and practices in journalism is to verify a story with two sources.

    This story was verified by three sources: three Arizona reporters confirmed McCain’s use of “cunt” when referring to his wife.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  23. alberta says:

    i have never been able to connect to sen mccain. i don’t know if he called his wife a cunt, but if he does, i have zero respect for him.

    my spouse and i get into heated arguments sometimes, but we always do it with a great deal of respect. i don’t call him names and he doesn’t call me names. the most that i have ever called my husband was stupid. and i would only do that behind closed doors and then i would quickly apologize. i have only called him a name a couple of times and we have been together 28 years. this man has no respect for his wife and therefore cannot have any real discipline with his temper as president. go take a rest sen mccain. you are a great american and deserve to not have to deal with the headaches and pain of leading the greatest country in the world.

  24. Athena says:

    There is absolutely no excuse for verbal abuse of a spouse. Any time a person resorts to this kind of behavior confirms a dark background of abuse, molestation and perhaps violence. If you think GWB is a bad act, McNasty is a whole other experience. It is all smoke and mirrors with politicians like McDunno and so my suggestion to voters – beware!

  25. HARALAMBOS says:

    why don’t we just ask him if he said it? Oh yeah – he’s a politician.

  26. peter says:

    But maybe she is a cunt!

  27. Neil Brazel says:

    I think he’s a cunt for calling her a cunt.

  28. rodger says:

    “If my husband called me that I’d bust him right across his face.

    No man calls me the “C.” You can call me the “N” but you’d better have your running shoes on cuz if you call me the “C” I’m come after you.”

    women like this are the problem w/ this country you need to know your roll and shut the fuck up cunt

  29. Xtine says:

    Oh well,
    It’s the only thing on Cindy’s body that’s actually real….

  30. Tex says:

    3 journalists under condition of anonymity. What a credible source. NOT.

  31. Kirk says:

    This was sixteen years ago, why is it relevant now?

    I’ll admit, it is kind of funny from a third person perspective, but it’s not worth basing your vote over.

  32. Kirk says:

    “So the Republican party has themselves a candidate who berates his spouse and calls her by a word that 99% of women find to be the most insulting of all words in the English language because he had a bad day?

    Their too busy humping Obama’s leg to bother.

  33. Nick says:

    You far left bloggers need to get the cock out of your assholes. McCain is a man of great integrety and has given his life to America. What has Big Barry Hussein Obama done?! Nothing! I find it funny that your side of the media is so unseccessful that all you guys can do is make smears on the internet that on based on no facts on people who are not Barry Hussein, Harry Reid or that cunt Nancy Pelosi… Stay away from blogs win false info. Watch Fox News, listen to the most succesful talk show on the airwaves like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity.

  34. The Queen of Bismark Terrace says:

    3 journalists under condition of anonymity. What a credible source. NOT.

    3 journalists — anonymous or not, are the standard for sourcing for mainstream journalism. Just as the Washington Post, New York Times, LA Times or Atlanta Journal Constitution.

    Try again, Tx.

    You far left bloggers need to get the cock out of your assholes. McCain is a man of great integrety and has given his life to America.

    Oy Vey! You radical, rightwingers and your obsession with anal sex.

    If you remove your nose from McCain’s rectum for a minute, you would see he’s a man of ZERO integrity and who abandoned his disabled wife because she didn’t look the part of a “senator’s wife” and traded her in for Cindy Lou. Younger and of course, richer.

    Do some research before you make a fool of yourself, Nick.

  35. Nick says:

    Haha, zero integrity?! Okay, if McCain has “zero integrity,” words can’t even describe that peace of shit Obama. Just look at the people he abandoned when it was convenent for his political career. Here’s just a few names. Let’s start off with good ol’ Rev. Wright, a racist, who Obama had ties with for twenty years. Secondly, Bill Ayers, a terriost. How bout another racist POS who calls himself a preacher, Michael Pfleger. And last, Louis Ferricon, a racist Muslim who Barrack attended the million man march with. You go and do some research, you ignorant prick.

  36. Pammi says:

    McCain is a complete douchebag.

    When you marry, you take vows that include “in sickness and in health.”

    When Carol McCain had the car accident and became disabled, Johnny “Keating Five” McCain kicked the poor woman to the curb like a piece of used bathroom tissue. He’s a filthy scumbag and God punished him with melanoma cancer.

  37. steadycat says:

    @nick – do you know what the definition of racist is? Perhaps you need to get a better understanding of what the word means before you start labeling people racists.

    I’m still shaking my head at being called a racist (today) because I am a black woman that switched my support from Hillary C. to Obama.

    I saw a you tube video where McCain called a woman in the audience every derogatory name that woman haters use for female – and then he stormed off the stage. If you didn’t know it was John McCain, you would have thought it was a woman hating, dangerous, street thug. Perhaps that is exactly what he is. I don’t understand why the media keeps ignoring this and not publicizing it more.

  38. jeff says:

    Jesus Nick, you’re dumber than a sack of hammers. Ever hear of, or is it, here of, spell check? you’re a douchbag or is it dooch bag? You must like it up the ass cause thats all you have gotton from Bush and his little doggie McNasty the last eight years. OBAMA 08 you fuckhead.

  39. CHVNX says:

    What if she is a cunt who plasters on the makeup like a trollop? Who are we to call out McCain’s judgment about this woman? After all, he did marry her. He would be the one to know these kinds of things.

    I, for one, think it was probably said as a joke and taken wrong. Soldiers have potty mouths.

  40. Flüge Kuba says:

    Oh my goodness … only one word: Incompetent
    -Sry , but this is my belief

  41. danny says:

    the sources could have been 3 children for all we know and so what mccain called his wife a cunt who fucken cares good for him he has her in check
