A report just aired on MSNBC revealed that Arizona Senator and 2008 GOP Presidential Candidate John McCain has been diagnosed with a highly-aggressive form of brain cancer.
The Senator had been sidelined since surgery for a blood clot above his left eye. Upon laboratory examination, the clot was determined to be a glioblastoma, defined by the American Brain Tumor Association as “tumors that arise from astrocytes—the star-shaped cells that make up the “glue-like,” or supportive tissue of the brain. These tumors are usually highly malignant (cancerous) because the cells reproduce quickly and they are supported by a large network of blood vessels.”
The median survival according to the ABTA is 14.6 months.
As Breitbart Umasked reported Monday, this will come as welcome news to some in the alt-right fringe and RNC who have openly called for the Senator’s death.
The tumor could be responsible for the Senator’s erratic behavior during the recent James Comey hearing as the ABTA says the cancer can cause memory and speech difficulties.
Senator McCain is 80 years old and, despite our disagreement with many of his policies in the past, we wish him well.
