Cunningham endorses Hillary, again, live on CNN
Radio talk show host Bill Cunningham is burning up national TV time tonight.
In a live appearance just now on CNN, Cunningham endorsed Sen. Hillary Clinton, saying, "I've had it up to here with John McCain. He's off the list. I'm joining Ann Coulter in supporting Hillary Rodham Clinton."
Earlier today McCain denied ever meeting Cunningham before, telling reporters, "I will certainly make sure nothing like that happens again."
But Cunningham told CNN he met McCain twice before, including after a special invite with former U.S. Sen. Mike DeWine at Kenwood Country Club. "John McCain is developing -- maybe because of his advance in years -- a bad memory,'' Cunningham said.
"They told me to fire up the crowd. You're talking to conservatives," Cunningham said of pre-rally advice from the McCain campaign. "Get them fired up and give them some red meat. And I did. In fact, when I left, John, the crowd was cheering. All was well. No problem whatsoever until about an hour later . . . when John McCain threw me under the bus, under the Straight Talk Express. I got thrown under the bus."
