John McCain: Brain cancer prognosis very poor

John McCain: Brain cancer prognosis very poor”

McCain left his doctor's office at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix after a routine check-up only to be called on the phone shortly after leaving. "You've got to come back...it's very serious", McCain recounts the conversation to Lesley Stahl on 60 Minutes.

In July of this year, news broke that the 81-year-old veteran had been diagnosed with glioblastoma, the same type of brain cancer that eventually claimed the life of Sen.

But, says McCain, I kept saying to them, "Tell it to me straight. It was deeply moving, I had never seen anything like that", McCain said.

McCain also said he wasn't sure why Trump has approached Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi in the House and Chuck Schumer in the Senate to work on legislation fixing the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which the president rescinded earlier this month. There's always that.' You know, and - and I said, 'I can take it. "And then I think, cancer chose the wrong guy". Lab tests confirmed the diagnosis days later. "They said that the prognosis is very, very serious". Some say 3 percent, some say 14 percent. "Second of all, he has a very strong national security team around him who I know has significant influence over him". You know, it's- it's a very poor prognosis, ' recalled McCain. And at the same time celebrate with gratitude a life well lived'.

McCain, who has also come out against the latest GOP effort to repeal ObamaCare, dismissed a question on whether Trump was unfit to be president.

In a series of messages posted to Twitter, Trump slammed McCain for his lack of support in nullifying the Affordable Care Act, accusing the former Republican presidential nominee of going back on his word. He campaigned on Repeal & Replace. The interview will be broadcast on the 50th anniversary season premiere of 60 MINUTES, Sunday, Sept. 24 (7:30-8:30 PM, ET/7:00-8:00 PM, PT) on the CBS Television Network.
