MSNBC ‘Cartoon of the Day’ Jokes About John McCain in Hospital Bed


MSNBC Live decided that the illustration they would pick for Tuesday’s Cartoon of the Day would depict John McCain as he lies in a hospital bed.

The Arizona senator is flying back to Washington D.C. in order to cast his vote on the procedural motion to launch the next phase of the Senate’s effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act. McCain had taken some time off in order to focus on his battle with brain cancer — which he was diagnosed with only days ago.

As MSNBC reported on the upcoming vote, Stephanie Ruhle and Ali Velshi decided to highlight the cartoon which features McCain lying next to “Decency” and “Bipartisanship” in a hospital room.

…Bad timing? — Probably.
