Trump Allies Continue to Tastelessly Mock Sen. John McCain

Trump Allies Continue to Tastelessly Mock Sen. John McCain

A day after news broke that a White House aide reportedly mocked Sen. John McCain as the Arizona Republican battles brain cancer, calling him "a hero" who "dedicated his life to public service" and saying that his "thoughts and prayers" are with him and his family.

White House aide Kelly Sadler mocked Sen.

"That's why they call him "Songbird John"; White House aide Kelly Sadler says aloud at a White House meeting that McCain's opposition to Central Intelligence Agency nominee Gina Haspel doesn't matter because he is "dying anyway"; and White House chief of staff John F. Kelly, who has not fired Sadler, unleashes a bigoted, ignorant rant against immigrants".

"We're not talking about funerals", Graham said flatly.

Sadler has come under fire over a conversation where she bashed McCain for his opposition to Gina Haspel, saying "It doesn't matter, he's dying anyway".

"This may be a bit intense for 1 in the morning on Friday, but we're all dying".

We got Clinton leaving The Pierre hotel in NYC Friday, and when our photog asked about the crass comment, you see him stop, turn, process his words and then speak. And I want to say that since my dad has been diagnosed, the past, it's nearly a year, July 19, I really understand the meaning of life. "Don't feel bad for me or my family".

Meghan McCain has been a staunch defender of her father.

In response to strong criticism, Charles Payne, a host of the program on which McInerney was a guest, acknowledged on air that "a guest made a very false and derogatory remark about Senator John McCain".

The White House issued a statement regarding Sadler's comments later on Thursday, saying, "We respect Senator John McCain's service to our nation and he and his family are in our prayers during this hard time".

In July he announced that he was diagnosed with primary glioblastoma, a type of brain cancer.

After Sadler's insensitive comments, Cindy McCain, the senator's wife, took to Twitter to shut her down. In February, both women responded to what they described as Trump's "incredibly hurtful" attack on McCain on at the Conservative Political Action Conference, where Trump stirred up boos against McCain for his vote last summer against the Republican effort to repeal Obamacare.

Whoopi Goldberg and Sunny Hostin responded to another unfortunate comment about McCain. "So I want to thank all the positivity".

Mr Trump, on the other hand, campaigned on a kind of nationalism - on trade, foreign policy and immigration - that stands in stark contrast to Mr McCain's vision.

Usually when people are dying, they become spiritually magnanimous because they see the Big Picture, but McCain is apparently wasting his last days trying to settle scores with old enemies. "And that's all I have to say about that", McCain said.
