John McCain’s Friday surgery was so serious that Senate Majority Leader Mich McConnell delayed a vote on a bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act until the senator from Arizona recovers.
A blood clot was discovered above McCain’s right eye during a routine physical, requiring doctors to crack into his skull above the eyebrow. “Usually, a blood clot in this area would be a very concerning issue,” said Neurosurgeon Nrupen Baxi of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in NYC.
Per the New York Times:
The Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, has already announced that votes on a bill to dismantle the Affordable Care Act will not begin until Mr. McCain’s return. A statement released by Mr. McCain’s office on Saturday had suggested that he would be in Arizona recovering for just this week, but neurosurgeons interviewed said the typical recovery period could be longer.
The statement from Mr. McCain’s office said a two-inch blood clot was removed from “above his left eye” during a “minimally invasive craniotomy with an eyebrow incision” at the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix, “following a routine annual physical.” Surgeons there are not conducting interviews, and Mr. McCain’s communications director, Julie Tarallo, said no further information was available.
A craniotomy is an opening of the skull, and an eyebrow incision would be used to reach a clot in or near the left frontal lobes of the brain, neurosurgeons who were not involved in Mr. McCain’s care said.
Looks like he’ll be taking a break from deep-state shenanigans for a bit…
Does this explain McCain’s odd behavior?
During testimony, McCain referred to the former FBI Director as “President Comey,” before looking confused and frustrated with Comey’s answers… In fact, the entire sit-down was so strange that it was Twitter’s top tweeted moment from the Comey testimony.
I'm honestly confused with McCain's line of questioning. McCain wants to know if the Clinton camp colluded w/ Russians so they could lose?

I am confused about what point McCain is trying to make here?

McCain’s office responded to the Twitter attention, suggesting people are too stupid to understand him:
I get the sense from Twitter that my line of questioning today went over people’s heads. Maybe going forward I shouldn’t stay up late watching the Diamondbacks night games. What I was trying to get at was whether Mr. Comey believes that any of his interactions with the President rise to the level of obstruction of justice.
