John McCain has brain cancer. Last December he was reported to be “increasingly frail.” As he continues to battle his glioblastoma, he has become quieter during recent GOP meetings, CNN.
After the Arizona Republican publicly announced his brain cancer diagnosis in July, he’s since undergone various treatments, including both chemotherapy and radiation. On Wednesday, his treatments landed him in the hospital, “for normal side effects of his ongoing cancer therapy,” according to a statement from his office.
As McCain’s time on earth seems to be more limited, McCain has become focused on his funeral. McCain made news when he indicated that he did NOT want President Trump to attend his funeral. Of course Obama was welcome.
As McCain is putting his affairs in order, he has finally admitted that his choice of Sarah Palin as a running mate was a mistake.
His admission of his mistake is something we have known since the fall of ’07. However it seems that Palin has remained oblivious to the pain she has caused McCain. Given McCain’s perception of Trump, and his remorse about Palin, it seems obvious that he must feel responsible, in some way, for the election of Trump, who Palin endorsed.
Now the question is whether Palin will attend the funeral of McCain. It is uncontroverted that Palin is a fan of Trump.
It is undisputed that Trump said bad things about McCain.
John McCain’s daughter, Meghan, said that Palin brought “drama, stress, complications, panic and loads of uncertainty” to the losing campaign. I wonder if Palin will be invited to the funeral?
