Sen. John McCain has brain tumor, hospital says

Arizona Sen. John McCain has a brain tumor, the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix announced, as his staff says further consultations “will indicate when he will return to the United States Senate.”

Update: Sen. John McCain Diagnosed with Brain Cancer After Surgery

    Lets hope it is terminal and he drops dead soon

  • Clink9

    That explains a lot.

      Only if he has had it for a very long time.

    First Teddy Kennedy, now this …

    …”minimally invasive”…lol…

    I wish him a speedy recovery and an even speedier retirement. Serving fourty years as a useful idiot is long enough for anyone.

  • BillyHW

    He wouldn’t retire on his own, so God had to do something.

    1) He should be removed from office. It is very common for people with Brain tumors to have radical personality changes and to become irrational as the tumor presses on the brain. He has been pushing for Trump to be judged incompetent to be president so he should have to play by the same rules.

    2) He has often defended the VA , so he should be treated there rather than in the special hospital system for elected reps.

  • Now they’re saying “an aggressive form of brain cancer.”

    I have nothing nice to say.
    I’m sorry.

    • Justin St.Denis

      I have absolutely nothing nice to say about John McCain. I am trying to maintain a decent human profile so I will stay silent under the present circumstances.

    Lucky for him that Congress exempted itself from Obamacare.

    Always sad, and our prayers are with him and his family. Whatever we may feel about him and his deeds, now is the time for Christian charity.

    • Clausewitz

      According to the governments in both the US and Canada, we are harassed for doing Christian anything.

      • Frances

        Harassment is foreseen in the Bible. However, I would also reflect on these words: “Before that sudden journey no one is wiser in thought than he needs to be, in considering, before his departure, what will be.” (Ven. Bede).

    May God be with him.

    Like him or not it’s a sad thing for him and his loved ones. He has a very aggressive type of brain cancer. I hope his treatment is successful so he has a little more time with his loved ones.

    Lets hope he can’t be medicated he needs to suffer like all the people he’s made suffer over the years.
