San Diego professor annoyed at good wishes for McCain calls him ‘war criminal’
:: A San Diego State University professor has expressed annoyance at the good wishes for United States Senator John McCain after his recent brain cancer diagnosis.
“I find myself annoyed at the groundswell of good wishes for John McCain after his diagnosis of glioblastoma and have been thinking through why,” Political Science Professor Jonathan Graubart posted on Facebook about the veteran American politician.
“McCain is a war criminal and, more to the point someone who as a politician has championed horrifying actions and been lousy on state commitment to public health. So dying or not, he’s a risible public figure (I have no idea what he is like on the personal level and don’t care),” the professor wrote on a Facebook post on July 21 that has now been deleted.
McCain’s doctors found a tumor in his brain after he had underwent a procedure to remove a blood clot from above his left eye.
