Senator John McCain Diagnosed With Brain Cancer

John McCain has been diagnosed with brain cancer.

The 80-year-old Senator, who was the 2008 Republican presidential nominee, released a statement just days after undergoing a “minimally invasive craniotomy” surgery to remove a blood clot above his eye.

“Subsequent tissue pathology revealed that a primary brain tumor known as a glioblastoma was associated with a blood clot,” the statement read. “Scanning done since the procedure (a minimally invasive craniotomy with an eyebrow incision) shows that the tissue of concern was completely resected by imaging criteria.”

McCain is recovering “amazingly well” and doctors say his current health condition is “excellent.”

His daughter Meghan McCain also released a statement on Twitter, writing, “If we could ask anything of anyone now, it would be the prayers of those of you who understand this all too well. We would be so grateful for them.”

John McCain Responds After Getting Roasted on Twitter Over Comey Statements

John McCain has released a statement after his line of questioning was called into question during the James Comey Senate Intelligence Committee today.

“In the case of Hillary Clinton, you made the statement that there wasn’t sufficient evidence to bring a suit against her, although it had been very careless in their behavior, but you did reach a conclusion in that case that it was not necessary to further pursue her,” his questioning began. “Yet at the same time, in the case of Mr. (Trump), you said that there was not enough information to make a conclusion. Tell me the difference between your conclusion as far as former secretary Clinton is concerned, and Mr. Trump.”

Throughout the questioning, Senator McCain looked sometimes confused and frustrated, and referred to Comey as “President Comey” in one instance. On Twitter, users began questioning McCain’s health, and there was some poking fun at the Senator.

John McCain Withdraws Support for Donald Trump, Will Not Vote for Hillary Clinton Either

Senator John McCain, a former Republican presidential candidate, has announced that he has withdrawn support for Donald Trump amid the candidate’s controversial comments.

McCain revealed in a lengthy statement that he and his wife Cindy will not vote for either Trump or Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, but instead for “some good conservative Republican who is qualified to be President.”

“In addition to my well known differences with Donald Trump on public policy issues, I have raised questions about his character after his comments on Prisoners of War, the Khan Gold Star family, Judge Curiel and earlier inappropriate comments about women. Just this week, he made outrageous statements about the innocent men in the Central Park Five case,” McCain started off the statement, posted on his website. “As I said yesterday, there are no excuses for Donald Trump’s offensive and demeaning comments in the just released video; no woman should ever be victimized by this kind of inappropriate behavior. He alone bears the burden of his conduct and alone should suffer the consequences.”

“I have wanted to support the candidate our party nominated. He was not my choice, but as a past nominee, I thought it important I respect the fact that Donald Trump won a majority of the delegates by the rules our party set. I thought I owed his supporters that deference,” he continued.
