McCain's Brother Stuck in Traffic, Calls 911

Last week GOP candidate John McCain's brother was stuck in traffic and wanted to know why, so he called 911. Huh?


This isn't Joe McCain's first faux pas. On October 15, he called Virginia "communist country" (he later apologized). But this 911 incident has forced him to quit his brother's campaign, saying, "I'm no longer helpful to John. When you have the brother of a presidential candidate in a tight race appearing to swear at a police officer because of a traffic problem, I think it looks really bad." 

Some of the most famous people in the world have the most unlikely siblings. Check out the gallery.

Oh please! Has anyone considered the fact that maybe he was trying to see if something was going on that was causing a delay, like maybe a traffic accident or if a problem had been reported? Is this article somehow suggesting that Joe McCain had some untoward reason for calling 911 and if that’s true it should be a negative reflection on John McCain? Well if that’s the case then it’s time we start looking into Obama’s EIGHT Muslim siblings.

This has nothing to do with Obama. Yes, this story shouldn’t even be an here. And no, he shouldn’t have called 911 to see what was going on. 911 is for emergencies only. It was dumb him to call and ask what was going on as if 911 was some kind of information hotline.

Perhaps if the 911 operator had not been so rude to Joe he could have gotten to the point of his call, which was clearly to see if whatever was causing the delay was an emergency situation and if that had been reported. The operator made a rude assumption about the reason for the call and when Joe attempted to explain he was rudely cut off, so I say, it’s no wonder he swore at the operator. And yes it was just an operator not a police officer, as the article suggests. Furthermore, it was the article that brought up the issue of “…bad behavior” and having “a brother in a tight political race”. All I’m saying is that if we are now going to start using the siblings of candidates to judge them, then we need to start looking into the backgrounds and behaviors of Obama’s siblings as well.

AK Mom- You can’t be serious. You are so slanted in your beliefs you feel the need to defend this?

His ELITE attitude is the problem here and your ELITE attitude shows your extreme prejudice. I am starting to think you Robotpublicans would defend even a heinous crime!!!

I agree with Hanna, how can you defend him like that. Hellooo, have you heard about the emergency number “911” …YEA EMERGENCIES NOT TRAFFIC REPORT. O_o

Oh, this is SOOO much worse than Frank Biden killing a young, single father back in 99’ in a hit and run!

Not to mention, two young girls were orphaned, hasnt paid a dime owed to them, and didnt care enough to show up to court..

Oh, and NONE of the Biden’s ever contacted the orphans…
