McCain's name is in the news again this week after White House aide, Kelly Sadler, commented that "it doesn't matter; he's dying anyway", during a closed-door session with around two dozen communication officers at the White House early Thursday, while they discussed the ailing senator's opposition to Haspel. John McCain, "he's dying anyway", in response to his opposition to President Donald Trump's pick for Central Intelligence Agency director, Gina Haspel.

Her role in overseeing the use of torture by Americans is "disturbing", he says.

Mercedes Schlapp, the White House director of strategic communications, said Friday during a White House meeting that she stood by Sadler, Axios reported.

Sanders is refusing to otherwise weigh in on the comments or condemn them.

McCain is promoting a new book, delivering a counterpunch of ideals contrary to President Donald Trump's running of the White House.

Sen. Angus King, I-Maine, shares McCain's opposition to Haspel and said McCain is still able to make an impact from afar.

"There is not a tone set here", Sanders said.

On Friday, McCain's daughter Meghan, a co-host on ABC's "The View", shared her disdain by suggesting that the aide should've been fired for her insensitive remarks. "We have forgotten how to respectfully disagree".

Israeli PM Netanyahu says Iranian strikes from Syria "crossed a red line"
Israel and Russian Federation also set up a mechanism in order to avoid direct conflict over their competing interests in Syria . The air force planned to review Thursday's raids, the official said. "The Iranians declare their intention to #attack us".


White Home press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders listens to Well being and Human Companies Secretary Alex Azar reply questions from the information media through the day by day briefing on the White Home in Washington, D.C., Could 11, 2018. "I just wish somebody from the White House would tell the country that was inappropriate, that's not who we are in the Trump administration". "It was a badly considered joke, an very bad joke, that she said fell flat".

Sen. McCain, a Navy pilot who was beaten in captivity during the Vietnam War, has urged his fellow senators to reject Haspel. "He's not a war hero", Trump said.

"I am left speechless and with a sense of horror about the insensitive, crass and cruel remarks by a White House aide reflecting the administration's position on a heroic American's courageous fight", House Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee wrote.

"What was said yesterday goes beyond the pale; it's a moral failing and unacceptable", Kinzinger tweeted.

"[It] worked on John [McCain]", retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Tom McInerney told Charles Payne of Fox Business Network on Thursday.

McCain, held captive by the North Vietnamese for more than five years, has remained in the news as he reflects on his political career. 'I told him it should be required reading, ' he said.

That was a reference to comments Mr. Trump made about McCain in 2015, saying he wasn't a war hero because "he was captured".
