The National Republican committeewoman of Nevada, Dianna Orrock, is in hot water tweeting an article calling for the death of Senator John McCain on Monday. McCain had just had surgery to remove a blood clot in his right eye.
John McCain is an American hero & one of the bravest fighters I’ve ever known. Cancer doesn’t know what it’s up against. Give it hell, John.

Karen & I are praying for @SenJohnMcCain. Cancer picked on the wrong guy. John McCain is a fighter & he’ll win this fight too. God bless!

John and I have been friends for 40 years. He’s gotten through so much difficulty with so much grace. He is strong – and he will beat this.

John McCain is as tough as they come. Thinking of John, Cindy, their wonderful children, & their whole family tonight.

The article tweeted by Orrock is clear in that it literally calls for the death of McCain. The article reads, “If you’re waiting for the part where I say I’m just kidding and would never wish death on anybody, please allow me to make myself clear: I sincerely, genuinely hope that Arizona Senator John McCain’s heart stops beating, and that he is subsequently declared dead by qualified medical professionals very soon.” Despite the article being incredibly clear, Orrock claimed that she agreed with “sentiments” of it, and did not wish death upon the Senator.
