That fucked up remark about the Arizona Senator, who was tourtured during the Viet Nam war , saying he would NOT support Trump choice for CIA Director, Dina Haspel, who supervised the American post-9-11 specail interrorigation programs by the CIA….
A White House official mocked Sen. John McCain’s brain cancer diagnosis at an internal meeting on Thursday, a day after the Arizona Republican announced his opposition to President Trump’s nominee for CIA director, Gina Haspel.
Special assistant Kelly Sadler made the derisive comments during a closed-door White House meeting of about two-dozen communications staffers on Thursday morning.
“It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway,” Sadler said, according to a source familiar with the remarks at the meeting.
The White House did not deny the account of Sadler’s remarks, which came amid a discussion of Haspel’s nomination and McCain’s opposition to it….
A White House official called Meghan McCain on Thursday to apologize after she mocked Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) cancer diagnosis during a meeting earlier in the day, a source told The Hill.
The Hill first reported Thursday that special assistant Kelly Sadler brushed off the senator’s opposition to President Trump’s nominee for CIA director, Gina Haspel, saying, “It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway.”
Sadler later called the senator’s daughter Meghan McCain to apologize, according to a source.
Meghan McCain has not publicly responded to the comments herself, beyond retweeting her mother, Cindy, who chided the White House official.
“May I remind you my husband has a family, 7 children and 5 grandchildren,” Cindy McCain wrote…..
Remember though that the ugly attacks on McCain predated his cancer diagnosis….
My orignal thought was that Haspel would NOT make it thru the confirmation process….But it now appears that the members that I though would be against her confirmation due to her association with the black ops tourture programs are NOT focused on that, but are looking at her placement as someone who is from the inside of the agency….After Tillerson’s mess up over at State?…Senator’s seem to be will to overlook the past in hopes that agencies have leadership that is familiar with how things work in their departments….
