John McCain was out and about on Saturday, on a hike with former independent Senator Joe Lieberman and South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham.
‘The three amigos together again!’ McCain tweeted from the outing in Cornville, Arizona, just one day after he completed his first stage of radiation and chemotherapy for a brain tumor.

On Friday, the Arizona Senator’s daughter praised her dad for toughing out the treatments in order to help treat his aggressive form of cancer, glioblastoma.
‘My father completed first round radiation/chemo. His resilience and strength is incredible. Fight goes on, here’s to small wins. #f-ckcancer,’ Meghan wrote to her Twitter page.
The Senator also took to social media later in the day to send his gratitude to the hospital staff who aided him throughout the trying process.
Mayo Clinic Hospital – Phoenix staff said they successfully removed a blood clot above his left eye as well as the complete tumor that was detected through brain scans in July.
‘Thank you to the wonderful team @MayoClinic,’ McCain wrote Friday evening. ‘We appreciate everything you do!’

McCain, 80, received the cancer news just days prior to his decision to cast a vote against the ‘skinny repeal’ of ObamaCare.
In a public statement, McCain suggested he did not believe the repeal would ‘actually reform’ the health care system or ensure coverage for individuals.
‘While the amendment would have repealed some of ObamaCare’s most burdensome regulations, it offered no replacement to actually reform our health care system and deliver affordable, quality health care to our citizens,’ McCain said.
