Apparently McCain was simply giving his left leg a rest – by walking on his torn tendon!
Thank you for your support & best wishes. My left leg was doing extra work to compensate for the boot, so I'm giving it a break. I still hate wearing this boot, but it won't slow us down from frying 7 turkeys today!

81 year old John McCain (R-AZ) has had a string of unfortuate heath issues this year. In mid-july, the Arizona Senator underwent brain surgery for aggressive cancer – returning to Washington D.C. five days later to cast his vote against the healthcare bill.
Then, at the beginning of November McCain was treated for a tear to his achilles tendon at Walter Reed medical center – emerging on November 6th in a walking boot on his right leg:

Somehow, some way, it appears McCain’s tear has switched sides two weeks later – the day after his daughter Meghan’s wedding…

Maybe the honorable Senator from AZ is feeling so great two weeks after tearing his tendon that he forgot which side the injury was on?

To verify that the images weren’t reversed, one can observe the buttons on McCain’s blazer on McCain’s right side in both pictures.
Next – in the November 6th picture, McCain can be seen standing next to the Richard B Russell memorial statue in its proper orientation:
Also – reversing the image from today puts Cindy McCain’s wedding ring on the wrong hand. John McCain meanwhile is never pictured without his wedding ring (not visible in picture clutching cane).
Here he is eight days ago with his ring on:

Now maybe McCain’s tendon healed in two weeks and he simply forgot which leg it was during a senior moment. If that’s the case – is he fit to hold his Senate seat? Was he fit to cast the deciding vote which killed the healthcare repeal? Then there was his strange rambling line of questioningduring the Comey hearing.
