This shouldn’t come as a surprise. Joe Biden is not a good person.
The soulless, lefty journo hacks are getting all misty-eyed over how Joe Biden helped the late Senator John McCain meet his second wife, Cindy, back in 1979.
Is America headed for a recession?
Here is President Biden recounting the story at an event at the Tempe Center for the Arts in Tempe, Arizona, on Thursday honoring the legacy of the late Arizona Senator and what must be done to “strengthen our democracy!”

Here’s the transcript:
John and I used to travel together. When John got back from all the time in Vietnam in prison — when he was released, he decided he wanted to go back to stay in the military. And he was assigned to the United States Senate and to the military office there that travels with senators when they travel abroad.
And John and I put in a couple hundred thousand miles together. And on our way to — I think I was going to either China — I forget what the destination was — China, I think. And we stopped in — we stopped in Hawaii. And the — the Chief Naval — of Operations was there showing me around. They did an event for me.
And John kept looking at your mom. Oh, I’m serious. (Laughter.) And he said, “My God, she’s beautiful.” (Laughter.) I said — and I said, “Yeah, she is, John.” And I said, “Well, you to go up and say hi to her.” He said, “No, no, no, no, no, no.” (Laughter.) “I’m not going to do that.”
Well, as your mom come — I won’t go into more detail, but I’ll tell you: I insisted that they meet. (Laughter.) And I take credit. I take credit for you guys. (Laughter and applause.)

It would be a very sweet story if John McCain hadn’t been married to his first wife, Carol, at the time. Carol McCain had been disfigured in a terrible car crash while John was a Prisoner of War in Vietnam, so when John returned to U.S. soil in 1973 with great fanfare, his tall, beautiful wife just wasn’t the same.
Her car had skidded on icy roads into a telegraph pole on Christmas Eve, 1969. Her pelvis and one arm were shattered by the impact and she suffered massive internal injuries.
When Carol was discharged from hospital after six months of life-saving surgery, the prognosis was bleak. In order to save her legs, surgeons had been forced to cut away huge sections of shattered bone, taking with it her tall, willowy figure. She was confined to a wheelchair and was forced to use a catheter.
Through sheer hard work, Carol learned to walk again. But when John McCain came home from Vietnam, she had gained a lot of weight and bore little resemblance to her old self.

He stayed with Carol for years… until he met Cindy.
At the end of Joe’s little story last week, he tacks on that he and John had “married way above [their] station.”
“And I just told your mom: John and I had something in common, we both married way above our station —- way above our station,” quipped Joe.
Marrying the side chick is apparently marrying up in their circles because that appears to be another thing that Joe had in common with John.
You’ll be shocked to learn that Jill Biden also played a role in the McCain-Hensley romance.
The McCain and Biden families have been friends for a long time. In 1979, now-first lady Jill Biden introduced John McCain to then-Cindy Lou Hensley.
“It was at a cocktail party in Hawaii, and I was with my parents. Jill’s the one — ‘Why don’t you go over and talk to him?’ I guess he was looking my way. I wasn’t paying any attention anyway,” she said.

Biden encouraging McCain to cheat on his wife with a young, pretty Cindy Lou Hensley should not be a surprise at all.
It’s the openly crowing about it that’s a bit weird.
Leaving a disabled wife and young kids for a much younger model isn’t exactly the kind of thing that a guy who tried to build his image around morality should be proud of.
Divorce is devastating — especially to children.
In 2018, People magazine published an article about how quickly John moved on.
It’s been almost 40 years since Sen. John McCain left his first wife and three young children to marry Cindy Lou Hensley, a woman 18 years his junior — yet a lingering pain remains evident on the face of his oldest daughter, Sidney McCain.
“We were all shocked and heartbroken,” Sidney Sidney said on the John McCain: For Whom the Bell Tolls, a documentary that premiered Monday on HBO and details the extraordinary life of the Arizona Republican currently battling stage 4 brain cancer. “It caused quite a rift within the family.”
Sidney, 51, and her brothers Doug, 58, and Andy, 56, didn’t attend their father’s second wedding in 1980, although over the years they grew close to their father’s new wife, PEOPLE reported in 2008.
As a matter of fact, he was moving on before the ink was dry on the divorce papers.
Within a year of meeting Cindy, the still-married McCain, then 43, asked the 25-year-old Cindy to marry him.
“I really didn’t think he’d propose,” Cindy says. “He was older. I knew he cared very deeply for me. I did know that.”…
…According to the Washington Post, John and Cindy obtained a marriage license in Arizona in early March 1980, four weeks before his divorce from Carol was final. They married six weeks later, on May 17.
This is the thing that Joe Biden is proud to have been a part of.
But then, Joe Biden is a creepy, self-centered, lying, corrupt, not very bright politician who appears to have no moral center.
Heck, the President might even be a sociopath.
He claimed that his decision to run for President was because Trump allegedly defended white supremacists in Charlottesville in 2017. Trump did no such thing. It has become known as the “Charlottesville Hoax” in many circles on the right.
We know that Joe is not a great dad. No good father would use his drug-addicted son as the bag man for the family business.
Joe has a very creepy history of getting too close to women and girls. He doesn’t seem to understand boundaries and cannot seem to grasp when someone is very clearly uncomfortable with his touchy-feely ways.
Let’s not forget that Joe was “credibly accused” of sexual assault by former Senate staffer, Tara Reade in the 1990s.
His creepiness didn’t seem to know any bounds as his daughter Ashley’s diary appears to indicate.
Joe encouraging his pal John McCain to cheat on his disabled wife is just one more example that Joe Biden is an awful human being.
Check out Doug’s latest book, The Art of Joe: The Political Brilliance of President Biden. If you have left-leaning family members, workmates, or classmates, buy several copies and place them in common areas. Make sure you have your video camera ready for when they pick it up and thumb through it because they will be triggered which will make for a great viral video to share across social media. Also, buy a couple for the GOP NeverTrumpers that you know. Finally, both the book’s cover and the epilogue, Notable Quotable Joe are worth the price of admission. We’ve included before and after Biden on Afghanistan. Jen Psaki will no likey this book, but you will. BTW, the book is 95% bereft of any content. Just like Biden’s head.
