Sen. John McCain said in an interview Wednesday that he was uncertain how many houses he and his wife, Cindy, own."I think—I'll have my staff get to you," McCain said. "It's condominiums where—I'll have them get to you."
This is more than embarrassing. It underscores the fact that McCain is hardly a the regular guy he pretends to be. He's the son and grandson of prominent admirals, who got divorced from his first wife to marry a much younger woman (read: trophy wife) who happened to be one of the richest people in Arizona. Sweet!
The couple has several houses, depending on who you ask. McCain's staff says four, Newsweek says seven, though Cindy McCain has been quoted as saying seven or eight.
Whatever the real number, McCain appears clueless—not a good sign in a guy who wants to the Leader of the Free World.
UPDATE: New reports out today put the total value of McCain's seven houses at a cool $13 million. Hmmm. Who's the real elitist running for president?
