On Saturday, a cryptic tweet about Sen. John McCain caused a flurry of reaction. The Republican lawmaker was diagnosed with a brain tumor last summer.
“John hugged me tonight. He asked me to take care of Meghan. I said I would,” Ben Domenech, publisher of conservative website the Federalist, tweeted.
“F**k you soulless crazies. F**k you all the way to hell.”
Domenech is married to McCain’s daughter Meghan. He deleted the tweet almost immediately after posting it.
Is McCain’s health taking a turn for the worse? Last July, he had a blood clot removed from above his left eye. The tissue was tested, revealing the presence of a glioblastoma. Last week, McCain’s family announced that he had had surgery because of an infection.
Since his diagnosis, McCain has appeared remarkably strong. He took as little time off as possible from the Senate floor.
There are other signs that McCain’s health is failing. Meghan, who hosts The View, took a week off earlier this month.
“I am going home to Arizona today to be with my family for the rest of the week but will return Monday. Thank you all again for your kind words and prayers for my father – it really means so much to my family,” she tweeted.
After his surgery this month, McCain went to his Arizona home.
“Over the last few months, Senator McCain has been participating in physical therapy at his home in Cornville, Arizona, as he recovers from the side effects of cancer treatment,” reads a statement released by McCain’s office.
McCain has been forceful, influential senator. He’s a conservative but he never came around to agreeing with President Trump’s agenda. He’s been an active member of the Never-Trump brigade, a fact that has led to Trump calling him out multiple times.
He’s softened his stance in the last few months.
