Skip to comments.The Other Mrs. McCain
Posted on 09/02/2018 12:34:15 PM PDT by dustoff339
In all of the hoopla and bs surrounding the "final farewell" for McCain, one person seems to be significantly absent in it all.
That person in the original Mrs. John S. McCain: Carol McCain. For those who do not know, she was married to McCain when he was shot down over Vietnam. Prior to his deployment, Carol McCain was, by all accounts, quite a beauty. She was a 5' 7" tall, a successful swimsuit model, and the mother of three children (one by McCain, and two by an earlier marriage that McCain adopted). While McCain was a POW, she had an automobile accident that wrecked havoc on her body: she ended up at 5'3" tall due to the massive damage to her pelvis and her legs. She also gained some weight as a result.
McCain came back, saw this physically broken woman that was waiting for him, and promptly started running around (according to numerous accounts of his life, it was "well known" that John had numerous girlfriends during this time period). While still on active duty as an 0-6 Captain in the US Navy, he met Cindy Hensley (17 years his junior, and from a very wealthy family in Arizona), started dating her (while still married to Carol), and even filed for a marriage license with Cindy while still married to Carol!!! The rest is history.
None of this is new information...it has been out there in public records forever.
If I (as a former officer in the US Army) had done something like that, I would have been court-martialed for adultery and conduct unbecoming an officer! But....my daddy was a medically retired E-7, not a full admiral like his daddy and granddaddy.
My point is this...we all know why the MSM and the left are lionizing this adulterer and liar: it gives them yet another public forum to vent their anti-Trump rage.
McCain destroyed his original family to stroke his ego. That is much like the stories from some of the other POW's calling him Songbird: allegedly, he "sung" to his captors, betraying his country and thereby destroying the lives of other Americans to save his own life.
Good riddance to bad rubbish, in my opinion.
(PS: I think this is my first post in 10 or 12 years (although I read FR daily), so if I have done soemthing wrong, please let the admins feel free to delete it. It just really bugs me to see this circus happen without even a slight mention of the woman who stood by him while he was a POW.)
It might be your first post in 10 to 12 years, but it was well worth reading.
Nope all is good, and most agree with your sentiment.
Great post, do so more often please.
It truly hurts to imagine her, in her agony from a crushed and disfigured body watch, along side of her children, as the man she waited all those long years for to maybe...maybe not come home again...run around with another woman - a blonde floozy with big boobs and a truckload of money she didn’t earn while ignoring her in her dire time of need.
Ya done good pal,
Sadly he intended to use and dump Sarah just like his first wife, that's when both Sarah and I learned about the real Republican party, now termed the GOPe and Deep Swamp.
Notice that the MSM seems not to know there was a first wife..
AND !!——— Who was Jeremiah Denton ???
Another fact(or) that needs mentioning re the McLame fiasco...
I have read about his betrayal of his first wife before. Don’t expect the fake news crew to be honest about his biography when they can pick and choose whatever parts of it they hope will resonate to the detriment of the man they hate the most in the entire history of the world who is the President of the US. John McCain belongs to the ages now and, given time, someone might tell his story honestly and truthfully so this population can know the unrevised history.
She also became active in the POW/MIA movement while he was imprisoned in North Vietnam.
I agree with every word.
Don't let another 10+ years go by.
Thank you. For the post and your service.
Thanks for the reminder. She waited for him, but he wasn’t there for her.
Trump has been divorced twice himself, but trying to use McCain as the “moral high ground” to attack Trump is really a stretch.
Seems like McCain goes after Trump with the ridiculous “dossier”, and within two years he becomes another victim of “The Curse of Trump”.
(it’s more apparent to me that those who attempt to attack Trump via evil methods keep getting destroyed by the Almighty.)
This is someone I’ve been mentioned a few times as well.
There’s been no mention of her in any MSM article that I’ve seen. I’ll bet you not even 1% of people following the news even know that she exists.
Tends to spoil the John McCain rock of honor and integrity bullshit.
John McCain is idol with feet of clay, a despicable monster.
He didn’t due soon enough.
I agree with you about the lack of moral integrity of John McCain. Nothing he did in his career after his capture served anyone but himself. I had to hold my nose while voting for him in 2008.
He didn’t allegedly sing to his captors. It is a fact he sang. Listen:
I am sure that somewhere years ago, it was well known and admitted by John McCain that he was abusive to his first wife. I remember him apologizing publicly about his treatment of Carol McCain.
