Video: The day John McCain did the robot

posted at 8:31 pm on August 19, 2014 by Allahpundit

I have dreams like this sometimes after I eat a lot of spicy food before bed.

And the award for M.V.P. of the Hamptons 2014 summer season unequivocally goes to the performer Jamie Foxx. He once again turned a fundraiser for the Apollo Theater at Ronald Perelman’s home into the party of the summer…

At a particularly raucous point in his set, he called up New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie —a weekend guest of Mr. Perelman’s friend Jon Bon Jovi—to show off his moves…

And Mr. Christie gamely hopped up to crunk with Mr. Foxx and his band…

“Mr. McCain, you want to get up and show us something? Come on everyone, ‘McCain! McCain! McCain!’ ” Mr. Foxx shouted enthusiastically. And then Mr. McCain got up and did a little bit of the robot dance.

Usually the dream ends in horror, either with my teeth falling out or Rick from “The Walking Dead” showing up and talking to me about “stuff” and “things” for four hours. But now that I’ve seen this video, I know how the next one’s going to end. And then the one after that, and then the one after that, and so on. Forever.

And you know what the most horrifying, dreamlike, freakishly unnatural part is? The old guy actually moves pretty well.

Maybe it’s just that the joints don’t work.

Let him dance… back home and away from Washington.

This should be played when McCain loses his 2016 primary instead of humpbot.

Holding your hands like you’re doing a comical karate chop doesn’t mean you’re doing the “robot”.

ButterflyDragon on August 19, 2014 at 8:34 PM

I still will never vote for him ever again

Conservative4Ever on August 19, 2014 at 8:35 PM

He kind of already moves that way anyway because of his injuries.

He could team up with Dick Van Dyke.

Dear Arizona,
There is much to admire about you. Your independence of spirit, your willingness to to stand up to powerful forces to speak your mind despite the ridicule directed at you by the liberal left.
Having said that, why do you insist upon hoisting this buffoon upon the rest of the country. Again! Take him back, stick him in Sun City, no electronics for a year, and he must submit to a gag in his mouth during daylight hours, except while eating or brushing his teeth.

Funny how the narrative has changed in only a few weeks..

If this site isn’t posting about Ferguson, MO – they’re talking about the Middle East or John McCain breakdancing…

Whatever happened to the thousands crossing the borders every month?

No longer a story here I guess ?

Kinda figures ..

He should go on dancing with the stars. What’s one more shoot down?

I detest this bastard.

JOHN McCAIN 2016!

Right? I mean, obviously, the black folks love him.

Maybe Rand Paul should try doing ‘The Robot’ – he’s desperate to win the ‘black vote’, and he’s tried everything else (and, so far, hasn’t won over a single black voter).

Pork-Chop on August 19, 2014 at 8:48 PM

The really sad part: That Jamie Foxx would actually hang around with faux people like that.

The beheading video is now the second worst thing I watched today.

This is a guy who practically campaigned for his opponent in 2008.

WhatSlushfund on August 19, 2014 at 9:06 PM

1. That’s not the robot, that’s just dancing with his hands positioned weird.

2. If you are walking around in 2014, probably shouldn’t try to do the robot. Alas, Sen. McCain likely believes this is 1978.

3. Videos like these are good. They justify the fact that I never dance.

Gingotts on August 19, 2014 at 9:07 PM

Speaking of McCain’s and dancing……I this is a Meghan McCain music video….(warning a couple of cuss words)

terryannonline on August 19, 2014 at 9:09 PM

If I liked McCain this would be another palette cleanser…since I can’t abide him, it’s just another annoying video of McCain.

FYI….Chris Christie is also at this event and got up to dance. esh

She totally does. It’s really not a bad song (if one is in to that kind of thing). But I don’t want to give JM any ideas. Euch.

It does raise a larger issue though. Ever since Obama won the 2008 elections, there seems to have been an obsession among Republicans to present themselves as ‘young and hip.’

Bad move.

This is a big part of the civil war right now. Why Republicans seemed to have such a crisis of confidence as a result of that election is beyond me.

WhatSlushfund on August 19, 2014 at 9:34 PM

Are we sure this isn’t a JibJab video with McCain’s head pasted on the body of someone else?

Actually I like the fact that the GOP potential presidential candidates are younger (Rubio, Paul, Jindal). I think that will be a positive. I know it is superficial but voters seem to like younger candidates.

I think the underlying problem WhatSlushfund might have in mind is with them trying to act cool and hip. It’s like Bob Hope dressing up as Fonzie. It’s campy – people laugh at them, not with them and it serves no political end.

I think McCain is acting. But I don’t think someone like Rubio is acting “young”. I believe him when he says he likes rap music. He’s in 40s and rap music was just becoming popular when he was a teen.

terryannonline on August 19, 2014 at 9:49 PM

I really don’t think that’ll help him with anyone, including black people. And actually, it’s a bit racist in a way to assume it would. It’s like somebody saying they like tacos to show they’re down with the “dreamers”. (But Rubio’s already super-pandered to that demo)

I think it can be just as endearing to show that you’re not a part of whatever passing pop culture meme du jour, I remember Reagan joking about how someone described PacMan to him as “a round little guy that eats up millions in quarters” and he thought they were talking about Tip O’Neal.
No Gangham Style was needed.

Who said anything about race? We were talking about youth. I don’t know if you know this but rap music is pretty popular with young people of ALL races. Jay Z and Beyonce aren’t billionaires because only black people buy their music.

Meh. Awhile ago it would have been trying to please the Alanis Morrisette fans. Before that the Madonna fans. You could go back to Davy Jones or Bobby Sherman. Or Rudy Vallee.

It’s better if a person can be themselves, a rock in the endless changing stream of pop memes instead of trying to be tragically hip. Not worrying about being all things to all people at all times. In the end it’s as another, late, heartthrob star du jour sang: “You can’t please everyone, so you got to please yourself.”
