Old man McCain weighs in on made-in-America iPads and iPhones


Via Talking Points Memo:

This Week host Christiane Amanpour described ABC’s efforts to empty a house of all products manufactured outside the U.S., after which McCain touted the Apple products’ American-made roots.

“I would also point out that if you emptied that house there … if you left a computer there, or an iPad, or an iPhone, those are built in the United States of America,” McCain said.

Actually, iPhones and iPads, as is printed on the back of the products, are designed in California, but built in China.

His spokesman later said, “Senator McCain is aware they were designed but not assembled in the U.S.”

Uh, yeah. Right. Sure he is. Personally I’m surprised he even knows what an iPad is.

I’m just sayin’…
