“My jaw kind of dropped, and this was before the primaries, so it wasn’t even known yet who was going to be the nominee, and I didn’t speak for the rest of the luncheon, and we didn’t talk about it,” she said. “I was incensed. I said, ‘I can’t believe that somebody I could be married to could vote for someone whose track record is so obviously poor in terms of civil liberties, his feelings about women, how he treats people in general.’”
She continued: “I felt like I had been fooling myself. It opened up areas between us I had not faced before. I realized how far I had gone in my life to accept things I would have never accepted when I was younger.”
But here’s the kicker: McCormick’s husband, Bill, didn’t even vote for Trump.
McCormick said that, despite appearances, the separation is amicable.
“I like the fact that Bill and I are staying connected for the positive stuff in our lives. I’m very, very proud of that, for him and me,” she said. “I think we’ve done a marvelous job in doing that and maintaining the friendships that we’ve made together. I’m very proud of that.”
