Cindy McCain Tweets White House Aide Accused Of Mocking John McCain

A White House official dismissed Sen.

McCain went on to say that her family is "really strong" and they have been surrounded by love, prayer and positive energy during her father's recovery.

But John McCain - who has repeatedly obstructed and trashed Trump both before and after he took office - announced his opposition to Haspel, citing her past role in the CIA's use of enhanced interrogation techniques on radical Islamic terrorists after the 9/11 attacks.

A White House spokesman did not dispute the report, the Washington Post said.

Kelly Sadler, who works for Trump's communications teams, chose to respond to McCain's opposition to CIA Director Gina Haspel by mocking his battle with brain cancer.

Another White House official told CNN that the joke "fell flat".

Meghan McCain, the Arizona Republican's daughter, responded to Sadler's comment Friday on ABC's "The View".


"Kelly, here's a little news flash", she continued, "This may be a bit intense for 11 o'clock on a Friday morning, but we're all dying".

"We had some great discussions about all the travels, talking about going to Iraq, and I couldn't remember who the general was, and he said, 'Its General Austin, ' and I said, 'OK, thanks, '" Graham recalled, careful to say their time together was "reflective and forward looking, too". "Don't feel bad for me or my family". Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, who said he thought "it's ridiculous" that McCain doesn't want President Trump to attend his funeral.

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". "There are so many accolades I could heap on John McCain".

Mr McCain, 81, has been diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer, and has been resting at his family retreat in Sedona, Arizona in recent weeks.

"As a proud military veteran and son of a Vietnam vet these words neither reflect my or the network's feelings about Senator McCain, or his remarkable service and sacrifice to this country", Payne said. "These people? Nothingburgers. Nobody's gonna remember you". "We have a respect for all Americans".

McCain called Haspel a "patriot" in his statement in Wednesday but referenced her record and testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee to implore the Senate to vote down her nomination.

"It's a really ugly nickname, " Meghan McCain said Friday.
