After the news broke that Senator John McCain had been diagnosed with a brain tumor, the Left went into full swing attacking him on a personal level for his public opinions.
Social media users berated him specifically for his relating to the repeal of Obamacare. It is a articular sickness of the Left that they can be so viciously cruel and unsympathetic to people’s conditions if they happen to disagree with them politically.
McCain served his country in Uniform and in the Senate; people may not agree with his politics, but he deserves the respect owed to him for his sacrifice.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
Sen. John McCain announced his brain cancer diagnosis Tuesday night, and some liberals took that as an open invitation to attack both McCain and President Donald Trump. Within an hour of the news breaking that McCain had glioblastoma, a particularly aggressive form of tumor, some were already on Twitter blasting McCain for his desire to repeal and replace Obamacare.
“‘Show some compassion and human decency’ what you mean like the Republicans do to all Americans?” wrote Nathaniel Friedman, a writer for GQ magazine.
My friend’s husband died of glioblastoma in AZ. They wrote a letter to McCain begging for his help. He advised them to move.

In addition to attacking the McCain, some verified Twitter liberals decided to pull the attention away from McCain and attack President Trump, particularly on the unkind things he has said about McCain in the past.
