Cindy McCain, the widow of the late Senator John McCain (R-AZ), appeared on MSNBC on Monday to state that Republicans’ indignation over the cancellation of six Dr. Seuss books was “ridiculous.” She also said that the Republican Party must abandon its campaign of “fear, rage, and hatred.”
McCain started by lamenting the fact that the COVID-19 stimulus bill received no Republican votes.

“As you can see from the polling results, 59 percent of Republicans support this,” she said. “They want both sides to work together to solve our country’s problems. Unfortunately, this was not the case with the most recent vote. What we’ve discussed, and why I did what I did, is because it’s past time for us to start working together for the good of the country.”
Stephanie Ruhle of MSNBC asked, “Do you think there’s any chance that will happen, considering all the challenges this country is facing?” “Turn on conservative media — my parents have been Republicans their whole lives. They’re Fox News devotees. They weren’t learning about domestic terrorism if they watched Fox every day last week.
They weren’t paying attention to what was in this bill. They were listening to a story about cancel culture and Dr. Seuss that didn’t make much sense. Is it logical to Republican voters? “What is going on here?”
McCain replied, “There’s a lot of dissatisfaction.” “What happened on Fox or any of the other news channels with respect to Dr. Seuss and the rest of it is really quite ludicrous at a time when we’re dealing with the pandemic and the economy. People are unemployed. We need assistance.”
“I believe there is a disconnect between what people want and what our elected leaders want. Most importantly, we must hold them accountable,” she added. “The most powerful thing we can do is vote, and change the leadership if we think they are not doing what is best for the country, as you saw in the last election. I think you and I can both see that what is going to be my party is either starting to find its way or dissolving.”
McCain concluded, “Right now, there’s so much rage and hatred, and it’s coming from the top.” “I just don’t think our party would prosper by appealing to humanity’s dark side. I’ve seen it many too many times. I started this journey in my life with Ronald Reagan, and I just don’t see how— I don’t understand how we got here, but now that we’re here, we can’t have our leaders working with fear, rage, and hate.”
