The only public views of Sen. John McCain were shared on Twitter by daughter, Meghan McCain.

Today, the office of Sen. John McCain announced that on Sunday, he was “admitted to Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona, and underwent surgery to treat an intestinal infection related to diverticulitis. He is in stable condition.”

The senator has not been seen publicly since January and the last photograph of him was tweeted by his daughter Meghan in mid-March. In that photo, the senator, who is battling an aggressive form of brain cancer looked to be in failing health.

  1. Please resign Johnnie, but no,,,,, you are so arrogant that you will stay till your dying day or till at least after May so Douchy can APPOINT a replacement and not let the people vote, right? Though so. Yea, you will be back in the Senate this summer. Isn’t the senate on vacation in the summer?

  2. It is too bad that his final days are spent hanging on to his office until May which keeps the citizens he has “served” from selecting his replacement. I’m sure this time in Senator McCain’s life is very difficult for him, his friends, and his family, and it is too bad that politics as usual are such a driving force in the final actions of his life.

    You owe it to Arizona, because we need representation. You can’t do it. Pass it on. If you don’t, you will provide evidence that your concern is only about you. Remember, our country is a representative republic. Please give us our representative back. Leave with honor.

  4. they may be operating on that end, but they can’t fix it, still an A hole remains. Holding Arizona hostage.
