John McCain’s Walking Boot Mysteriously Swaps Sides Weeks After Treatment For Torn Achilles Tendon

Apparently McCain was simply giving his left leg a rest – by walking on his torn tendon!  

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:

Update: McCain was wearing the boot on his right on Nov. 14th (h/t @mark_woodard)

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.

  1. Puppet you say? Sure, but even a lowly sock puppet knows whether it is the left or right hand that feeds it its power to move its jaw properly in the first place, even more so its narrative du jour. It’s the under hand that can cause confusion and distraction in my view.

    Has anyone considered the possibility that in the wake of the never-before occurrence of some1800 sealed federal indictments that must surely include a number of high-profile actors – that what all these “walking boots” represent are a cloaking device for monitoring devices shackled to ankles – that could certain be switched from left to right to alleviate any chafing or irritation that might be developing – and thus “give it a rest”? Maintaining image and dignity while hiding the dirty little secrets going on behind the scenes in the way of coercion, extortion or plea-bargaining for example does seem to be at least plausible as a potential explanation, eh?

    1. Or, it could be merely a prop to “explain” the unseemly gait of one who is drugged to high heaven and/or so affected by the brain tumor that normal locomotion would give away his infirmity. The electorate does not normally have great confidence in a “representative” who is barely able to function.
