McCain returns to cheers from GOP senators
Applause and whoops greeted Senator John McCain, who is battling brain cancer, as he returned to Washington DC to vote for moving ahead on legislation to dismantle Obamacare
On Tuesday the 80-year-old McCain had a visible scar above his left eye after doctors removed a blood clot earlier this month.
“Stop listening to the bombastic loudmouths on the radio, TV and internet. To hell with them!” the feisty McCain said in a speech on the Senate floor.
McCain drew a standing ovation after his remarks. He had cast his vote to take up the healthcare bill, delivering for his party and President Donald Trump on the issue that’s defined the GOP for the past seven years.
