President Barack Obama has consistently snubbed John McCain, the man he defeated in 2008, and so lost himself a potential Republican ally in the Senate, McCain has revealed.

“Let’s get real here. There was never any outreach from President Obama or anyone in his administration to me,” the Arizona senator disclosed in an interview with The Hill.

McCain said he had been eager to work with the White House on immigration reform and the line-item veto, but never heard a word back. As ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, he also expected to be consulted on security issues, but was not, he added.

The claims run counter to the narrative put out by the Obama camp that suggest McCain was bitter after his crushing defeat.

“This idea that this president or his people reached out to me is patently false,” McCain told The Hill. “To somehow allege that I didn’t somehow respond to their overtures, that’s patently false. That’s their narrative, and I understand their narrative, but it’s not substantiated by the facts.”
