Senator John McCain Will Not Be Returning to the U.S. Senate, Prepares for the End

Fellow Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) has made it official: Senator John McCain (R-AZ), who is quickly losing his battle with Stage 4 cancer, will not return to the U.S. Senate.

As Politico reported, Hatch noted McCain’s inability to return: “That’s what I’ve been told. I don’t know. I hope he does, I hope he can.”

Hatch, who the more senior Republican Senator, urged McCain to reconsider his harsh decision to not invite President Donald J. Trump to his funeral:

McCain prefers instead that Vice President Mike Pence attend his funeral rather than Trump, who has mocked McCain for being tortured and attacked him for voting against Obamacare repeal. But Hatch said he thought keeping the president from his funeral was too much: “I think it’s ridiculous.”

“Well, he’s the president of the United States and he’s a very good man. But it’s up to [McCain]. I think John should have his own wishes fulfilled with regard to who attends the funeral,” said the Utah senator. Asked whether McCain should change his mind about Trump, Hatch said: “I would.”

Meghan McCain, who is Senator McCain’s daughter and co-host of “The View”, has been posting many tributes to her accomplished father on Instagram. These are heartbreaking:

Many close family friends, including former Vice President Joe Biden, have been spending time with McCain at his home during his final days. As Biden told The New York Times, “I wanted to let him know how much I love him and how much he matters to me and how much I admire his integrity and his courage. I wanted to see my friend.”

Let us pray for Senator John McCain and his family during this difficult time.
