McCain Oba­macare vote wows Hol­ly­wood

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Va­lerie Richard­son

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.”
