The current political atmosphere is harmful. There’s no chance to get around it. The consistent verbally abusing and over-the-top talk hosts contaminated the two gatherings.
Be that as it may, when it was uncovered on Wednesday that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has been determined to have mind growth, the unfortunate news seemed to peel back the layers of enmity that have turned into a trademark of Washington D.C.
John McCain is an American hero & one of the bravest fighters I’ve ever known. Cancer doesn’t know what it’s up against. Give it hell, John.

Hillary Clinton agreed that McCain is “as tough as they come.”
John McCain is as tough as they come. Thinking of John, Cindy, their wonderful children, & their whole family tonight.

Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), Hillary Clinton’s running mate in 2016, called McCain a “hero.”
Thinking about a hero, my Chairman, my friend John McCain. Stay strong!

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi labeled the Republican a “hero, a patriot and a fighter.” She also said McCain is her “friend.”

Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) made it clear that McCain is one tough cowboy.

It’s easy to forget famous politicians are also human beings. McCain is not only a United States senator. He is a father, a husband, and a grandfather. Further, cancel truly couldn’t care less if your name has a R or a D alongside it.
Just see what Meghan McCain had to say about her father:

Even if it’s only for a short time, it’s good to see Washington come together for the right reasons.
Give it hell, John.
