Sen. John McCain said Thursday there's nothing he can do about President Donald Trump's reported mocking of him over his healthcare vote — and isn't "particularly" bothered by it, The Hill reported.

Axios reported the president mimicked the Arizona Republican's dramatic thumbs-down to a July bill to repeal Obamacare.

But the Hill has quoted sources disputing the president imitated the gesture during a meeting with conservatives on Monday — and only mentioned the thumbs down vote.

"I regret that he's doing it," McCain told the Hill. "But there's nothing I can do about it."

The senator's daughter called the incident "abhorrent."

McCain was diagnosed with brain cancer earlier this year.

Arizona voters "know me," McCain told the Hill.

"Those are the ones that I am representing and so, do I like it? No. But does it bother me? Not particularly," he said.

McCain also was opposed to a recent bill from GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana that would've replaced Obamacare's Medicaid expansion and insurance subsidies with block grants to the states.

Trump sparked anger from both Republicans and Democrats for dismissing McCain's heroism when he was a prisoner of war in Vietnam, saying in 2015 "I like people who weren't captured." He never apologized for the remark.
