Liberals on social media stopped pretending to care about Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.) on Tuesday after he voted "yea" on a motion to begin debate on health care legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

McCain returned to Washington, D.C. on Tuesday after his office announced last week that the 80-year-old senator had been diagnosed with brain cancer. Minutes before he voted, liberals and a few journalists warned McCain on social media that if he voted in favor of moving forward with the GOP health care legislation, he would ruin his legacy.

Others shared their anger over McCain's vote.

Sports news site Deadspin tweeted out that they "don't want to hear another fucking word about John McCain unless he dies."
