Recent news led us to believe McCain would be returning to his seat soon, but that appears to have been put on hold.
Reports early this morning broke that Senator McCain has been hospitalized for an intestinal infection.
Senator McCain has been unable to perform his senatorial duties for months.
Since last year, McCain has been home dealing with brain cancer.
Now, he has undergone surgery for an intestinal infection.
His office released the following statement:
“On Sunday, Senator McCain was admitted to Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona, and underwent surgery to treat an intestinal infection related to diverticulitis.”
The Time Has Come…
What is about to be said may come off as harsh.
That being the case, if you are a snowflake, you may want to look the other way.
It is time for McCain to retire.
He served this country bravely and is widely recognized as a hero for his time in the service.
However, his time as a Senator needs to come to an end.
This is a pivotal time in this country, and we need representatives that are present and supporting their party.
McCain has proven time and again to be an obstructionist not only to President Trump, but to the “new generation” of Republicans.
He has rarely, if ever, supported Trump.
Most recently, he did not even give Trump time to respond to the Syrian chemical attack before putting the onus of the attack on President Trump.
We all wish Senator McCain a speedy recovery from both this latest problem and his battle with cancer, but his time is past.
Do the right thing Senator McCain for both your health and this country. Step down.
