Senator John McCain (R-AZ), war hero and longtime politician, has just been diagnosed with a terrible brain tumor.
While there’s been no word from President Trump yet about the awful news for a man that he mocked for getting captured and tortured by the Vietcong and referred to as “crusty” just two days ago, President Obama was quick to take to Twitter to send a message of support:
John McCain is an American hero & one of the bravest fighters I've ever known. Cancer doesn't know what it's up against. Give it hell, John.
— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) July 20, 2017
President Obama’s encouraging words are a sharp reminder of what it was like to have a president with grace and class instead of the foul-mouthed boor we have currently occupying the White House.
We wish Senator McCain a swift recovery.
