BREAKING: John McCain diagnosed with brain cancer

U.S. Senator John McCain was found to have a brain tumor, according to a statement released by his office and the Mayo Clinic. In the statement it said that on 14th July, Senator McCain had a blood clot removed from his eye at the Mayo Clinic Hospital. Turns out that the blood clot was associated with glibastomas, tumours that are usually highly malignant.  The statement went on to say that the Senator was recovering from his surgery ‘amazingly well’ and ‘his underlying health is excellent’.

“Senator McCain appreciates the outpouring of support he has received over the last few days. He is in good spirits as he continues to recover at home with his family in Arizona. He is grateful to the doctors and staff at Mayo Clinic for their outstanding care, and is confident that any future treatment will be effective. Further consultations with Senator McCain’s Mayo Clinic care team will indicate when he will return to the United States Senate.”

Nothing has been said about the Senator resigning.

    Wouldn’t wish cancer to anyone.

      Unless the choice is between feminism and cancer, right? Lot’s of treatable cancers after all. 😉

    hope he live… but takes this as a sign to leave office

    I’m shocked, my money would have been on he doesn’t have a brain. Can’t think of it happening to a better person.

    In case anyone still doubts that SJWism is cancer, one need only look at the disproportionate number of them that have actually contracted cancer.

    I genuinely hope the cancer is treatable and that he enjoys many more years of good health.

    However, I would prefer that he enjoy those years of good health as a private citizen and not a Senator, because frankly he’s been a colossal embarrassment as the latter.

    McCain is kind of a cunt, but he’s not too bad as far as Conservatives go. It’s a shame this happened to him, but then he is getting up in years and cancer is a fairly common reaper of the elderly. The GOP won’t be too bothered overall though, since I’m fairly sure McCain’s seat is staunchly Red.
