    Not a fan of his, but my thoughts with him and his family.

    This is really going go cause more havoc to the Washington machine. One less GOP vote and I wonder if and when he returns. Prayers to McCain. I guess we now know why he was asking crazy questions.

    Hey now - just because he has brain cancer doesn't mean it was responsible for the questions.

    That sucks. Must have had blood taken prior to his last surgery or after and further evaluated. He hasn't exactly lead a peaceful life.

    Perhaps Trump can put the bickering behind for a moment and tweet out a thoughtful post, wishing McCain well...

    While I agree with you wholeheartedly on this, perhaps you are asking way too much of Trump.

    Jackass has yet to apologize to McCain for his disgusting language during the campaign.

    You're dreaming. McCain was probably the last politician I recall who didn't take a verbal swing at an opposing party member. Though this explains a lot about his behavior these last few months.

    I think he has been fighting Melanoma since 2000, no?

    Trump won't tweet because he's likely blaming the repeal vote being delayed/dead on him too

    He actually just did, It's not his normal twitter, it's the POTUS one. Can you find it?

    However, there's still no apology for how Trump treated McCain last year. Nor is this written in Trump's own vernacular; this was obviously constructed by his staff. Hopefully at least approved by Trump himself...

    I sit corrected. Meanwhile I find the tweet and statement a bit light. But I can't compare it to any Obama did because I never paid much attention to those statements.

    At least his office or he did the right thing. Now if he'll just leave it alone. Safer than hoping he will tweet any afterthoughts even an apology. Just.. let it be. It looks right and presidential.

    Does Trump use the POTUS one. Most likely his staff tweeting something.

    Jesus can we stop super analyzing every ****ing thing Trump does? Not a huge fan of McCain but at least he has taxpayer covered healthcare.

    I'm not sure. Some of them look like they do come from him, spelling and grammar.

    Donald trump doesn't do apologies.

    But he should consider making it his next career move.
