'He's dying anyway': John McCain's family slams White House aide's comment about ailing father
Kelly Sadler, a special assistant in the communications office who helps manage talking points for Trump allies, made the comment about McCain during a discussion among the White House communications staffers about Gina Haspel's nomination for Central Intelligence Agency director, which the Arizona Republican announced Wednesday that he opposed.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders on Friday refused to confirm or deny what Sadler had said.
"I'm not going to validate a leak one way or the other out of an internal staff meeting", Ms. Sanders said.
Meghan McCain, the Arizona Republican's daughter, responded to Sadler's comment Friday on ABC's "The View".
The White House and the President have not denied or condemned the comment, though a White House official told CNN on Thursday, "We respect Senator McCain's service to our nation, and he and his family are in our prayers during this hard time".
A source told the news outlet that she was emphasizing that staff members should defend their colleagues whose comments get leaked to the press. He left Washington in December and underwent surgery last month for an infection. "That's why they call him 'Songbird John.' Those methods can work and they are effective, as former Vice President Cheney said".
Meghan McCain called that a "real ugly nickname" on Friday. "I really feel like I understand the meaning of life, and it is not how you die, it's how you live", she said. Coming to her father's defense, she said his "legacy is going to be talked about hundreds and hundreds of years". McCain's has said his defiance of his captors was motivated by a loyalty to his fellow American prisoners of war.
A spokesperson for Fox News said they have banished the guest who said torture "worked" on Sen.
Haspel faced grilling Wednesday by the Senate Intelligence Committee about her role overseeing some CIA operations after the September 11 attacks. McCain famously voted down a White House-led effort to repeal Obamacare. "I just wish somebody from the White House would tell the country that was inappropriate, that's not who we are in the Trump administration".
As for the president, he and McCain have had a troubled relationship.
"Certainly there is not a tone set here", Sanders said.
Trump's sneering put-down of McCain notwithstanding, the Arizona senator is hardly the only target of Trump's disrespect, so Sanders' words are laughable.
