White House Goes Silent on Remark about McCain

White House Goes Silent on Remark about McCain

A top Republican has urged the White House to speak out against an aide who mocked Senator John McCain's brain cancer during an internal meeting, but stopped short of calling on U.S. President Donald Trump to apologize. "People have wondered when decency would hit rock bottom with this administration", former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. said in a statement.

"The fact is John McCain - [torture] worked on John". He won us all over back in the early days when he was just a congressman. McCain said he opposes her confirmation as Central Intelligence Agency director because of what she did in the past.

John MacDonald of Lowell, a member of Veterans Assisting Veterans, said it's time to let McCain ease out of politics with dignity. "I really feel like I understand the meaning of life, and it is not how you die, it's how you live", she said. She refused all further comment.

The next day, Meghan McCain said on The View that she was shocked Sadler was still employed by the White House.

A White House spokesman did not dispute the report and issued a statement on behalf of the White House: "We respect Senator McCain's service to our nation and he and his family are in our prayers during this hard time". It was a joke that fell flat, a White House official told CNN. "Our children learn from our example. I am certain it will be John's". McCain was captured and endured 5 1/2 years as a prisoner of war.
