Cindy McCain: John Never Did 'Anything Deliberately to be Hurtful'

The Republican Party has changed since her husband's death a year ago, Cindy McCain says.

Meghan McCain returned to ABC's the View in October of 2018, two months after the senator's death.

"I don't see anybody carrying that mantle at all, I don't see anyone carrying the voice - the voice of reason", she added.

She said her husband "never did anything deliberately to be hurtful or anything".

Though she's aware tough days still lie ahead, Cindy's found solace in moving back to the Arizona neighborhood she grew up in and where she and her late husband first lived when they were married. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), her husband's closest friend in Congress.

"Lindsey has his own political career to worry about and his own political life", she added.

The arrangement seemed mutually agreeable until earlier this year, when Braun's label Ithaca Holdings acquired Big Machine. Watch this space for Swift's big Back To The Future act - and the inevitable chart resurgence of her older tunes.

"I would just hope that in the long run, everyone would begin to move in the right direction, including Lindsey or anybody else", McCain said.

The celebrated Vietnam War veteran and former prisoner of war came under attack in 2015 when Donald Trump - then a candidate campaigning for the presidency - said that McCain was "a war hero because he was captured" and that Trump liked "people that weren't captured".

Navy leadership didn't go through with obscuring the ship's name, and Trump denied having any information about the request.

When asked by Karl how she thought John McCain would have reacted to the "send her back" chants that broke out at a "Make America Great Again" rally in North Carolina, referring to four Democratic congresswomen, McCain said her husband "would not have accepted it".

"Lindsey's a part of my family", she continued. "He's a good friend and I can not, (and) will not, be critical of Lindsey". "I was so accustomed to sharing life with John, there were days when I felt overwhelmed by his absence, and the habits and little problems of ordinary life seemed a challenge", she wrote. John McCain died after a grueling fight with glioblastoma, a form of brain cancer, his widow, Cindy, has mostly stayed out of the spotlight. Our heaviest grief has subsided, which I'm sure would have prompted John to wise crack, "It's about time".

Things are getting better, as he promised us they would before he left us.
