Clip Of McCain Defending Obama In 2008 After Supporter Called Him ‘Arab’ Goes Viral After McCain’s Death

3

A 2008 video of Sen. John McCain defending his then-campaign opponent Barack Obama went viral after McCain’s death on Saturday.

The resurfaced clip from the campaign trail, shows McCain shutting down a supporter who pushed a racist conspiracy theory against Obama, who was then a Democratic senator from Illinois.

“I can’t trust Obama. I have read about him, and he’s not, um, he’s an Arab,” a woman said to McCain at a town hall meeting in Lakeville, Minnesota, in October 2008.


McCain then grabbed the microphone and cut the woman off.

“No, ma’m,” he said. “He’s a decent family man [and] citizen that just I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues, and that’s what the campaign’s all about. He’s not [an Arab].”

  1. Now I’m glad this RINO Trump hater is gone. Obama forced Israel to stop building apartments for Jews. This while supporting radical Arab revolutions causing havoc all over. Al sharpthon was a regular visit to the Jew hater obama. For years obama sat in the church with rev wright who ranted against Jews. Vote Trump 2020

  2. It was at that exact moment that we knew McShame would lose. He threw the election right there. He allowed himself to get bullied by the Thought Police. He was literally shaking in fear of being called the dreaded R A C I S T word!!! Huckabee would of NEVER folded or apologized the way McShame, and the big duffus, Romney, 4 years later.
