White House Declines to Condemn Aide's McCain Remark

John McCain's opinion during a closed-door meeting because, she said, "he's dying anyway".

Sanders referred to as the remark "unacceptable", however was stated to be extra upset concerning the leak than the off-handed remark from White Home staffer Kelly Sadler that McCain's opposition to their Central Intelligence Agency director nominee Gina Haspel "would not matter, as a result of he is dying anyway".

The Hill first reported the comment later confirmed by The Associated Press.

A White House spokesman did not dispute the report and said, "We respect Senator McCain's service to our nation and he and his family are in our prayers during this hard time". He left Washington in December and few expect him to return.

Sadler is a special assistant to the president.

The Media Research Center studied all broadcast evening news coverage of the President from January 1 through April 30, and found 90 percent of the evaluative comments about Trump were negative - precisely the same hostile tone we documented in 2017. John McCain (R-AZ) dying of brain cancer.

A steady stream of visitors have stopped by the McCain family ranch in Arizona - including Michael Bloomberg, the former mayor of NY, on Friday.

McCain, 81, is battling mind most cancers. "I don't understand what kind of environment you're working in when that would be acceptable and you can come to work the next day and still have a job", McCain, a co-host on " The View", said today on the show.

Her father is "all about character and bipartisanship and something greater than yourself", Meghan McCain said, before adding a stinging message to the critics: "Nobody's going to remember you".

PolitiFact, in a report from 2008, said there was "scant evidence to back up the claim and it is strongly contradicted by many other accounts ..."

Haspel faced grilling Wednesday by the Senate Intelligence Committee about her role overseeing some CIA operations after the September 11 attacks. She went on to make clear that Sadler nonetheless works on the White Home.

As for the president, he and McCain have had a troubled relationship.

Trump, for his part, once mocked McCain's war service, saying during the presidential campaign that "I like people that weren't captured".

Last July, McCain became the deciding vote against the GOP health care repeal with a dramatic thumbs-down.

Asked if Trump himself should apologize for Sadler's comments, Graham said, "I'll leave that up to him, but if something happened like that in my office - somebody in my office said. such a thing about somebody, I would apologize on behalf of the office".

"Given this White House's trail of disrespect toward John and others, this staffer is not the exception to the rule; she is the epitome of it".
