Senator John McCain is vowing to return to Washington once he's been treated for brain cancer.
'Yeah, I'm going to have to stay here a little bit longer, take some treatments. I'll be back,' the 80-year-old Republican senator told South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, his close friend. 'I've been through worse.'
Graham shared the conversation with reporters on Wednesday evening, adding, 'So pray. God knows how this ends, not me. But I do know this: This disease has never had a more worthy opponent.'
McCain underwent surgery last week for what was thought to be a blood clot above his eye.
The Senate eagerly awaited his return and postponed a vote on the GOP healthcare bill while McCain rested up.

These are political titans of the United States Senate and the Republican Party, I feel sick
>>Yeah, I’m going to have to stay here a little bit longer, take some treatments. I’ll be back,’ the 80-year-old Republican senator told South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, his close friend. ‘I’ve been through worse.’
Then I won’t pretend to wish him well other than to pray for his soul.
Who’s surprised? ... Show of hands, please.
So will the Crabs, but we don't want those either.
Give it up, John. It’s time to exit gracefully. Your family and state beckon.
McCain’s ol’ “fart sniffer”.
No, McCain. You’ve been term-limited.
He’s not a representative of the people, you understand.
Glioblastoma is a very bad diagnosis. If he comes back it will be brief. Someone needs to talk some sense with him and implore him to retire gracefully.
“..political titans of the United States Senate...”
That has always been the problem. They have worked hard for THEMSELVES and their supporting lobbyists. Status quo Washington.
This is a delusional statement he is terminal. What he has is incurable and metastasizing.
No you haven't.
This is as believable as all the other lies this guy has been spouting for years. No John, you won’t be back. You should be thinking more about where you are actually going soon. Prayers for your soul.
His brain is malfunctioning and needs to quit. All us in AZ need to write his office to urge him to resign and spend his remaining time with family and friends. No one is irreplaceable.

No thanks, Ace. No sale.
You’ve made yourself into one of this country’s greatest domestic enemies. Worse than the racist Fraud you supported in 2008, and worse than the forces you and he armed against America.
