View Full Version : U.S. Issues John McCain left his wife because she lost her looks in a car accident

She was the woman McCain dreamed of during his long incarceration and torture in Vietnam’s infamous ‘Hanoi Hilton’ prison and the woman who faithfully stayed at home looking after the children and waiting anxiously for news.

But when McCain returned to America in 1973 to a fanfare of publicity and a handshake from Richard Nixon, he discovered his wife had been disfigured in a terrible car crash three years earlier. Her car had skidded on icy roads into a telegraph pole on Christmas Eve, 1969. Her pelvis and one arm were shattered by the impact and she suffered massive internal injuries.


When Carol was discharged from hospital after six months of life-saving surgery, the prognosis was bleak. In order to save her legs, surgeons had been forced to cut away huge sections of shattered bone, taking with it her tall, willowy figure. She was confined to a wheelchair and was forced to use a catheter.


Through sheer hard work, Carol learned to walk again. But when John McCain came home from Vietnam, she had gained a lot of weight and bore little resemblance to her old self.


Today, she stands at just 5ft4in and still walks awkwardly, with a pronounced limp. Her body is held together by screws and metal plates and, at 70, her face is worn by wrinkles that speak of decades of silent suffering.


For nearly 30 years, Carol has maintained a dignified silence about the accident, McCain and their divorce. But last week at the bungalow where she now lives at Virginia Beach, a faded seaside resort 200 miles south of Washington, she told The Mail on Sunday how McCain divorced her in 1980 and married Cindy, 18 years his junior and the heir to an Arizona brewing fortune, just one month later.

McCain cheated on his first wife with and proposed to Cindy while still married to his first wife. This is common knowledge, but conservatives could care less now that McCain is their guy.

Obama did drugs as a teenage. McCain was over 40 and cheated on the crippled mother of his children.

Yeah, but it was during the same time period. You cant blame McCain for years lost in POW camp.

It's kinda like dog years but in reverse . For every year served in Vietnamese POW camp you get back 5 years of your life when you get out.

So McCain was like 15 when he came back to the U.S.

BINGO! I totally agree. So you also agree that McCain brings up his old POW days every time he has to explain or deflect some current shit is out of line. I'm glad we agree.
