New book says McCain called his wife a “cunt”

The Real McCain by Cliff Schecter reports that back in 1992, Republican presidential hopeful John McCain snapped at his wife, calling her the dreaded “c-word.”

Three reporters from Arizona, on the condition of anonymity, also let me in on another incident involving McCain’s intemperateness. In his 1992 Senate bid, McCain was joined on the campaign trail by his wife, Cindy, as well as campaign aide Doug Cole and consultant Wes Gullett. At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain’s hair and said, “You’re getting a little thin up there.” McCain’s face reddened, and he responded, “At least I don’t plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt.” McCain’s excuse was that it had been a long day. If elected president of the United States, McCain would have many long days.

Um…yeah. Makes me wonder how he treated her when no one else was around. Jeez.
