SHARE McCain says Pfleger slam on Clinton is “unwarranted, uncalled for and disgraceful.”

WASHINGTON–GOP presumptive nominee Sen. John McCain (R-Az.) on Friday weighed in on the Father Michael Pfleger controversy, where the Chicago priest mocked Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) from the pulpit of Obama family church, Trinity United Church of Christ.

McCain said, “And I think that kind of language and that kind of treatment, of Senator Clinton, is unwarranted, uncalled for and disgraceful.”

FROM MCCAIN PRESS CONFERENCE…..

Q. Changing to a different topic here. I wanted to get your

reaction to the news that there are incendiary rants coming out of

Obama’s church and his reaction to that. And on a bigger issue, given

the continued acrid comments coming out of the congregation, would it

be fit for Obama to leave his church?

A. MCCAIN: I — in answer to your second question, honestly I

don’t have enough knowledge of the situation to — that’s a decision

Senator Obama would have to make. But I’ve been in this campaign for

a long time, and I have known Senator Clinton for a long time. I have

always treated her with respect. She is a person that we have very

different positions on a lot of issues and of philosophy, but I

respect her.

And I think that kind of language and that kind of treatment, of

Senator Clinton, is unwarranted, uncalled for and disgraceful.
