Senator of Arizona, John McCain, has been the topic of many conversations over the last few weeks since it has come out that he was directly involved with scandals such as Uranium One as well as the fabricated Trump dossier. It seems that McCain has had some health scares with some pretty convenient timing.
We are learning now, however, that some of those health claims are in question since some pretty damning photos have leaked onto the internet.
It was reported by the Gateway Pundit that on November 6th John McCain had undergone treatment at Walter Reed Medical Center. He had suffered injuries on his Achilles tendon.
Senator McCain’s office released a statement which read, “Senator McCain was treated at Walter Reed Medical Center over the weekend for a minor tear in his right Achilles tendon, as well as for other normal and non-life-threatening side effects of cancer therapy. Senator McCain has returned to work in the Senate and will be wearing a walking boot until his injured tendon is fully healed.”
McCain posted a photograph of himself wearing the boot on his right foot to Twitter and wrote, “I can’t tell you how much I hate wearing this boot!”

Then, something fishy happened. On Wednesday, McCain put a picture on his Twitter of himself along with his wife Cindy as well as their daughter Meghan McCain’s dog. The photo had been taken at their daughter’s wedding.
“Mother, father & puppy of the bride in beautiful Cornville #Arizona yesterday!” he captioned the photo.

It didn’t take long for Zerohedge contributor ZeroPointNow to point out that McCain’s boot mysteriously shifted from his right leg to his left leg. This struck a lot of people as very odd.
“Looks like @SenJohnMcCain forgot which Achilles tendon tore two weeks after he walked out in a boot on Nov 6th,” tweeted ZeroPointNow.

A lot of people were quick to comment on the boot switch.
By now we are all aware that Senator John McCain has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. Doctors found the tumor after completing an operation that was meant to remove a blood clot from above his left eye.
The Arizona senator along with his family are taking into consideration different options for treating the brain tumor. These options include chemotherapy as well as radiation. The 80-year-old career politician has been treated in the past for skin cancer and has come out cancer-free.
The Mayo Clinic in Phoenix released a statement which explained, “The Senator and his family are reviewing further treatment options with his Mayo Clinic care team. Treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation. The Senator’s doctors say he is recovering from his surgery ‘amazingly well’ and his underlying health is excellent.”
McCain’s office released a statement which explained that the Arizona lawmaker is “in good spirits as he continues to recover at home with his family in Arizona. He is grateful to the doctors and staff at Mayo Clinic for their outstanding care, and is confident that any future treatment will be effective.”
The Mayo Clinic also explained that John McCain’s brain tumor is a kind categorized as a glioblastoma. According to the American Brain Tumor Association, this kind of tumor is “usually highly malignant.” They tend to spread quickly and are extremely hard to treat effectively.
We cannot be sure of if or when Senator McCain will make his return to Senate. While it’s obvious that many Conservatives are not happy with McCain’s conduct lately, we wish him the best in his recovery.
