Amnesty-loving Senator John McCain has made a career out of saying one thing to his constituents then doing the exact opposite once he returns to the DC swamp. He loves few things more than the DC cocktail circuit and seeing a few positive adjectives near his name in the Washington Post and New York Times.
He’s willing discard pretty much any principle necessary to receive praise from the liberal press as a “maverick” and/or “sensible” Republican. And he often thwarts, like with healthcare recently, major conservative legislation in the process. However, while McCain’s certainly a habitual traitor to the conservative cause, but he’s still human at the end of the day.
As reported at the Daily Mail, in a revealing interview that aired on 60 Minutes Sunday, McCain talked about the “very poor prognosis” his doctors gave him when he was diagnosed with brain cancer earlier this year. The rare and aggressive disease was “very, very serious” according to doctors, to which he simply replied, “I understand.”
McCain said that after his diagnosis he said, “Now we’re going to do what we can, get the best doctors we can find and do the best we can. And at the same time, celebrate with gratitude a life well-lived.”
In July, he underwent surgery for the tumor. Doctors discovered glioblastoma, which is almost always a death sentence. But in the face of this terrifying disease, the senator is has remained poised and focused on his job in Congress.
The interview comes just days after Trump took to Twitter to lambast the senator for preventing a Republican repeal of Obamacare.
“John McCain never had any intention of voting for this Bill, which his Governor loves. He campaigned on Repeal & Replace. Let Arizona down!” President Trump tweeted Saturday morning.
McCain once lodged a knife in the back of Republicans on Thursday, when he exclaimed he couldn’t “in good conscience” support the GOP’s effort to finally get rid of Obamacare. The funny thing is, McCain’s close friend, and constant betrayer of conservatives, Lindsey Graham (R-SC), was a sponsor of the bill.
It really makes one wonder what it would take for him to keep his word and vote for repeal. McCain is no conservative or friend to the cause, but it’s still tragic when anyone is diagnosed with cancer. Hopefully the senator will be able to beat the odds and live out his days happy and healthy, preferably a long, long way from the halls of Congress.
