First Lady Melania Trump had surgery on Monday for a benign kidney problem that will keep her hospitalized for several days. Also on Monday, retired Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) had surgery to treat pancreatic cancer.
Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who has been at the center of a Beltway controversy over an insensitive comment about his ill health made in a private meeting by a White House staffer that was leaked to the press, posted his ‘prayers and best wishes’ to only one of the two:
“From one cantankerous senator to another, sending my prayers & best wishes to @SenatorReid as he recovers from a successful surgery”
From one cantankerous senator to another, sending my prayers & best wishes to @SenatorReid as he recovers from a successful surgery

McCain did not send get well wishes to the First Lady. McCain’s snub comes after it was reported he does not want President Donald Trump to attend his funeral, but has invited former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush to attend.
