White House aide jokes of 'dying' John McCain, prompting outcry

"I don't understand what kind of environment you're working in when that would be acceptable and then you can come to work the next day and still have a job", Meghan McCain said on the show Friday morning.

Meanwhile, Cindy McCain clapped back at Sadler on Twitter, writing: "May I remind you my husband has a family, 7 children and 5 grandchildren".

Meghan McCain spoke out Friday after a White House aide dismissed her father, Sen.

A White House aide is under fire after she mocked U.S. senator John McCain's brain cancer, dismissing the Republican's opposition to President Donald Trump's nominee for Central Intelligence Agency director.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders called reports of Donald Trump's longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen taking hundreds of thousands of dollars from AT&T and Novartis, a major pharmaceutical company, "the definition of draining the swamp" due to the stated fact that the President was not influenced by him.

Haspel said in a statement Thursday evening that she has the "utmost respect" for McCain.

She said her father is "doing really well right now".

"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".

Cindy McCain also chastised Fox Business Network and Making Money host Charles Payne Thursday for a comment made by retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney during a discussion about McCain's opposition to Haspel and his opinion that torture is not effective.

"I feel blessed", she said.

"Last time I saw him, he'd just gotten out of surgery and was really anxious about him", Graham told CNN.

Whoopi Goldberg and Sunny Hostin responded to another unfortunate comment about McCain.

John McCain issued a statement Wednesday urging his colleagues to stand against Haspel, citing "her involvement in the so-called enhanced interrogation program" after 9/11.

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) said the comments from the Trump administration represented a "new record set for disgusting". John McCain when he was a prisoner of war in Vietnam.
