Liberals on Twitter Cruelly Target McCain for Healthcare Vote After Surgery and Brain Cancer Diagnosis

MSNBC’s Joy Reid, Ilyse Hogue of the abortion advocacy organization NARAL, and blue checkmark Twitter in general showed Tuesday that they have no problem not only personally targeting someone with brain cancer who has just been through a major surgery but also using his illness as a talking point against him.

Hogue tweeted Tuesday that maybe McCain’s “recent life experience will give him empathy to do right thing,” as he bravely returned to the Senate floor visibly scarred from his recent surgery with a brain cancer diagnosis to vote yes on the debate on the GOP health care bill.

MSNBC’s Joy Reid tweeted out a story about Ted Kennedy advocating for universal healthcare despite brain cancer saying “One left his sick bed to vote to provide healthcare to millions. The other may be returning to work from his sick bed to take it away.”

Matthew Yglesias wrote that it was “Inspiring to see McCain risk his health so that millions could some day experience the unique freedom that comes from having no insurance.”

Many, many others cruelly targeted McCain over his vote in light of his severe diagnosis because they disagreed with his position on the healthcare bill.
