After undergoing treatment for brain cancer this past month, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) announced that he will return to his position in the Senate.
On Wednesday, the 80-year old senator held a town hall meeting on Facebook Live where he expressed his gratitude to all that have supported him.
“Thanks for your outpouring of affection,” McCain stated in regard to all the messages he got. “Even those that want me to die don’t want me to die right away, so that’s good.”
McCain called himself “literally the luckiest guy on Earth” as a result of the best wishes he received. “My treatment is going fine. I’m feeling fine,” he added.
“This is a rough disease, let’s be very honest about it. That’s straightforward. I’ve always been straightforward. I have to beat it,” he explained. “Fortunately, they found it early, and the treatment is going extremely well. I have another week and a half of this kind of treatment that I’m getting, then they’ll check it out and see if there’s anything additional that needs to be done.
“Look, my friends, this is a very malicious disease. But I’ve had other challenges in my time as well,” McCain noted.
“My Democrat friends and some of my Republican friends,” he chuckled. “I’m coming back.”
McCain stated that he is feeling much better, with “plenty of energy.” On Wednesday afternoon, he is even speaking with local mayors.
During the town hall, McCain touched on a several topics. In relation to North Korea, McCain recommended that Trump should heed the advice of his “talented” national security advisors.
In regard to health care, McCain asserted that the repeal of Obamacare should follow “the normal legislative process.”
“What does a ‘skinny repeal’ mean, by the way?” he joked.
