McCain Obamacare vote wows Hollywood
Not long ago, Sen. John McCain was reviled by leftists as a warmongering hothead, but now he’s their hero, thanks to his vote to preserve Obamacare.
The left-wing feminist group UltraViolet announced Monday that it would fly a plane banner over Phoenix to thank the Arizona Republican for his vote last week against the so-called “skinny repeal” of the Affordable Care Act.
Mr. McCain’s position also wasn’t a sure thing leading up to the early Friday vote.
“Senator John McCain is a man of his word and a true hero,” said liberal Hollywood director Rob Reiner on Twitter. “Compassion and heart wins the day.”
Other celebrities were similarly effusive. Billy Crystal tweeted, “Great respect to @JohnMcCain who put country over party,” while Kristen Bell said, “A maverick, indeed.”
Said Cher, “SO MUCH 4 trumps Dis of Hero John McCain.”
