John McCain Says Maybe Gay Adoption Preferable To Child Abandonment

It's Gay Tuesday here on Wonkette, so we bring you this exciting Gay News Update: John McCain said the other day that only man-and-lady-style couples should be allowed to adopt, and now he is saying something different! Of course, because he is a politician, he is obliged to declare that he has been "perfectly clear" on this issue all along.


So here is what he said first, as reported a couple days ago in that racy New York rag (read by many homosexuals):

“I think that we’ve proven that both parents are important in the success of a family so, no, I don’t believe in gay adoption."

And then here is what Jill Hazelbaker, his Director of Communications, said today via Andrew Sullivan:

McCain could have been clearer in the interview in stating that his position on gay adoption is that it is a state issue, just as he made it clear in the interview that marriage is a state issue. He was not endorsing any federal legislation.

McCain's expressed his personal preference for children to be raised by a mother and a father wherever possible. However, as an adoptive father himself, McCain believes children deserve loving and caring home environments, and he recognizes that there are many abandoned children who have yet to find homes. McCain believes that in those situations that caring parental figures are better for the child than the alternative.

When will McDonald's start boycotting John McCain?

Donald Trump held one of his televised cabinet meetings today in which he railed about the terrible Democrats who forced the current border crisis (at a time when illegal border crossings are actually lower than usual). In what's sure to be his favorite phrase on Twitter for the next few days, Trump blamed "extremist open-border Democrats" for all the problems he brought on himself with his family separation policy, and explained that Democrats were simultaneously hurting illegal immigrants AND the rest of America by forcing Normal America to accept Central Americans who fled to the US. It made loads of sense! And then things got ... less so.
