McCain's mother

Post by Desert » Sat Sep 01, 2018 6:09 am

John McCain's mother:
- 106 years old
- born in 1912
- Eloped in Tijuana (kids these days), in 1933
- When notified upon her son's release from North Vietnam in 1973, that he had shouted expletives at his captors, Mrs. McCain's response was, "Johnny, I'm going to come over there and wash your mouth out with soap."

Yeah, I think I'd vote for her! Is there a maximum age for the office?

She'd beat Trump with a switch on his bare bum.

"And my mother called, and so I answered the phone. She said, Johnny. I said, yes, Mother? She said, I just read the excerpts from your book in the magazine. I said, well, what'd you think? And she said, well, I'm coming over there and wash your mouth out with soap. I said, Mom, these were bad people; they were hurting me and my friends; they were very bad people. She said, that's no excuse; under no circumstances did I ever teach you to use language like that (laughter)."
Link.

If my mother ever expressed the sentiment that you can't use bad words at people who tortured you for years on end, I would commit her to a home. She'd've obviously lost her fucking mind.

Mrs McCain sounds awesome, although I imagine Mother Kriegsspiel as being pretty cool as well.
de-fang the snake, said my filipino kali instructor. Shortly after that, he hit me in the head with a rattan stick.
