‘Why Are You Always Lying?’: John McCain Called Out For ‘Absurd’ Explanation About Why His Boot Was On Different Foot

On November 6th, POLITICO reported Senator John McCain received treatment at Walter Reed Medical Center after injuring his Achilles tendon.

“Senator McCain was treated at Walter Reed Medical Center over the weekend for a minor tear in his right Achilles tendon, as well as for other normal and non-life-threatening side effects of cancer therapy. Senator McCain has returned to work in the Senate and will be wearing a walking boot until his injured tendon is fully healed,” the Senator’s office said in a statement.

“I can’t tell you how much I hate wearing this boot!,” tweeted McCain showing off his boot on right foot.

On Wednesday, McCain tweet a photo of himself with his wife Cindy, saying “Mother, father & puppy of the bride in beautiful Cornville  yesterday!”

Zerohedge contributor ZeroPointNow point out something peculiar about McCain’s boot. The Senator is wearing it on his right foot on the 6th and on the left on the 22nd.

“Looks like @SenJohnMcCain forgot which Achilles tendon tore two weeks after he walked out in a boot on Nov 6th,” tweeted ZeroPointNow.

Now this…

“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!”, tweeted McCain.

The Hill reports:

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Thursday clarified that his walking boot is on his right foot, adding that he switched it to his left to “give it a break.”

McCain caused confusion when he posted a photo from his daughter Meghan’s wedding in which his walking boot was on his left foot. He had previously been seen wearing it on his right foot after he suffered a minor tear in his right Achilles tendon. Some Twitter users noticed that he was wearing the boot on his other foot and began raising questions about McCain’s injury.

Twitter users were not having McCain’s excuse.
