Admitted Thespian Joe McCain Calls 9-1-1

Thespian Joe McCain Calls 9-1-1

Joseph Pinckney McCain II, kid brother of Republican presidential candidate John McCain and admitted thespian, was stuck in traffic at the Wilson Bridge on October 21st at 1AM (when is closing time in Old town, anyway?). Exhibiting his family’s typical sense of entitlement, he called 9-1-1 and told them to do something about the annoyance:

Operator: 911 state your emergency

Caller: It’s not an emergency, but do you know why on one side at the damn drawbridge of 95 traffic is stopped for 15 minutes and yet traffic’s coming the other way?

Operator: Sir, are you calling 911 to complain about traffic? [pause]

Caller: ” [Expletive] you.” [caller hangs up]

He then called the Alexandria police department to complain about the traffic. They asked if he was the jerk who just called 9-1-1:

Alexandria police: Did you just call 911 in reference to this? 911 is used for emergencies only, not because you’re just sitting in traffic.

Joe McCain: This isn’t traffic. This is a pretty serious malfunction. … Do we just sit here indefinitely while this bridge malfunctions?

Alexandria police:Honestly, sir, we have no control over the bridge. … Maybe you can contact VDOT [Virginia Department of Transportation] or the Maryland Department of Transportation.

Joe McCain later apologized and promised his brother announced he would no longer actively campaign for his brother.

Joe McCain lives or lived in Virginia’s communist country, in northern Virginia. He is described as a former journalist and actor, but a preliminary search shows he may have been fired by a San Diego paper, acted in an independent film about race in America, appeared as himself in a cable TV show about his brother, and acted at the defunct Burn Brae Dinner Theatrein Burtonsville, Maryland:

“Saturday Night Live” comedian Joe Piscopo performed there, as did Gil Gerard, TV’s “Buck Rogers.” Others taking early turns in the spotlight at Burn Brae were Broadway and TV director Scott Ellis . . .  and Joe McCain, brother of the presumptive Republican presidential candidate.

The McCain brothers’ sense of entitlement comes naturally. Sons and grandsons of admirals, their mother is an oil heiress.

Joe McCain has a reputation for humor and dialect jokes; his mother, Roberta, is known for candor. After the campaign, Joe and his Mom should consider talk radio. Broadcasts would need to be done remotely from their homes. They live on opposite sides of the Wilson Bridge.
