White House Goes Silent on Remark about McCain

White House Goes Silent on Remark about McCain

Former Vice President Joe Biden ripped into President Donald Trump's administration on Friday and said it "hit rock bottom" after reports that White House aide Kelly Sadler mocked Sen.

Mercedes Schlapp, the White House director of strategic communications, said Friday during a White House meeting that she stood by Sadler, Axios reported. The fact is, is John McCain - it worked on John. "I'm not scared of death anymore, I'm just not". Rucker is the White House Bureau Chief for The Washington Post. "It happened yesterday (Thursday)", Biden said in a striking statement. We're all dying. I'm dying, you're dying, we're all dying.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, said she would not comment on a closed-door meeting where the joke was made.

A White House official told CNN Thursday, "We respect Senator McCain's service to our nation, and he and his family are in our prayers during this hard time".

McCain then fired back addressing Sadler directly with what she called a "news flash".

"They are very bad", Mulvaney said of the comments on Cavuto Live. A Fox spokeswoman said Friday that retired Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney will no longer be allowed on the network. "He has served all his life and he has served the country well", said Gordon Gerson, president of McCain's Naval Academy class of 1958. Payne tweeted that McInerney's remark was "very false and derogatory" and "should have been challenged". However, the conversation apparently did not go smoothly, with McCain telling The View that she could not understand how Sadler was allowed to keep her job.

Non-profit organisation, Veterans of Foreign Wars, has mistakenly emailed a drafted press release announcing the death of US Senator John McCain, who has been recovering from a surgery and continues to battle an aggressive form of brain cancer, media reported. Sadler called Meghan McCain on Thursday to apologize for the remark, a source close to the situation told CNN, although it's unclear what her response was.

"However", McCain continued, "Ms. Haspel's role in overseeing the use of torture by Americans is disturbing".

He added: "I believe the Senate should exercise its duty of advice and consent and reject this nomination".
