McCain jokes GOP can't even get the support of blood relatives

McCain told MSNBC “Morning Joe” hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski that his mother, Roberta, gave him a call to express her dissatisfaction with lawmakers.

“[On Wednesday] I got a call from my mother, who’s 101,” McCain said.

“We’re losing blood relatives!” he exclaimed to laughs.

An Associated Press-GfK survey last week found a mere 5 percent of those polled approve of the job being done by Congress.
