PHOENIX, AZ (3TV/CBS 5)-- Cindy McCain was heard in a radio interview on KTAR Mac & Gaydos claiming she stopped a human trafficking incident at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, but Phoenix police has debunked that claim.

“I came in from a trip I’d been on and I spotted—it looked odd—it was a woman of a different ethnicity than the child, this little toddler she had, and something didn’t click with me,” McCain said in the radio interview. “I went over to the police and told them what I saw, and they went over and questioned her, and, by God, she was trafficking that kid.”

McCain went on to say that she discovered the woman was waiting for the man who bought the child to arrive from his flight.

Phoenix police said Wednesday that while officers did respond to the Jan. 30 call, at McCain’s request, they were able to determine “there was no evidence of criminal conduct or child endangerment.”

Arizona’s Family reached out to McCain for a statement Wednesday afternoon, but has not received a response.

McCain has since tweeted about the incident:

typical trust funder - trying to take credit without actually earning it


Seems like a case of "Airport Cindy" to me.


Apparently lying runs through the entire family. Sad.

War hero? Oh that's right, old John said he was a war hero because he crashed three military aircraft. A great pilot he was not, but great at testing aircraft egress systems. Rename the Martin-Baker seat after old song bird.


Just have to have the name in the news, gotta be noticed!

If it were meagan at the airport, she would have not noticed anything like this as her face would have been stuffed in her feed bag. Meagan needs to have jenny craig on speed dial. If meagan gains any more weight, she will have to have goodyear tattooed on her sides.


I'd say that you are a misogynistic scum pig with the soul of cesspool slime, but since you designated yourself "Trump supporter" you've already established that.

Hey corn fed mama, you must be as big as meagan, but it is what it is.


And what are you? Oh that's right. An idiot unable to thing for herself.

If it were Meagan she would have eat the child, problem solved. Relax it's a Hansel and Gretel joke.

English isn't your primary language, is it?

Just like ol johnny boy, can't believe anything that flows out of their mouth. If that's the orcife they talk from.


And this coming from a supprter of the biggest liar ever. LOL


Why you think his nose is brown?


If her husband hadn't of been a turncoat, we probably would have seen a reduction in human trafficking. He is exactly where he belongs and his family needs to shut up and go away.


Coocoo McCain time. All my houses are so cold and lonely now...


Why did she stick her nose into it? None of her business.


Just more McCain ego...


lies like a cheap rug, but it runs in the family. just like the rino did.


She probably mistook the kid for one of her new employees at her sweat shop Hensley distributing !!
