Posted on 05/10/2018 6:36:05 PM PDT by ColdOne
According to two White House sources, the staffer, Kelly Sadler, said of McCain, "It doesn't matter, he's dying anyway."
White House sources said the joke at first elicited some nervous snickers. Afterward, though, the sources said many spoke to each other about being surprised by the "tasteless" remark.
I believe Gina Haspel is a patriot who loves our country & has devoted her professional life to its service & defense. However, her role in overseeing the use of torture is disturbing & her refusal to acknowledge tortures immorality is disqualifying. https://t.co/ocDtdqU2Sx John McCain (@SenJohnMcCain) May 10, 2018
Sadler's comments were first reported by The Hill, which said she made them during a closed-door meeting of about two dozen White House communications staffers on Thursday morning.

I would have said: “He’s a JackAss, so it doesn’t matter anyway.”
Why is that considered mocking or a joke?
His idiocy deserves mocking. He chooses to make his last days shameful. Johnnie will die, be buried and promptly forgotten.
Sadler has a point.
And the journolists have a bit of a butthurt over it.
How ironic, the same Commie media that called McCain literally Hitler in 2008, now think he is the bees knees because he hates President Trump
It’s a statement of fact.
One would think you would have more pressing matters to attend to than tweeting if terminal ...
I do not care.
I’ve made MANY tasteless remarks about McCain for several years...and every one was well deserved.
Tasteless? Not as tasteless as the scumbag McPain who accuses a patriot career civil servant of being an amoral sadist.
McPain is the one engaging in outright character assassination - because he hates our President. No one will miss him when he is finally gone.
Fox News is being complicit with the Fake News Media’s effort to make McCain a martyred saint whose name can be used to bash Trump.
Thanks Fake News
Round up the 2 dozen staffers and say” You are all terminated unless the two people leaking to the media out of school resign today”.
Juan assumed room temperature weeks ago. They’re just pulling a Fidel until the clock runs out and the governor can appoint Cindy to Juan’s seat.
This is not mocking. It is a statement of fact and a valid observation of the entire situation.
If they want to see mocking, I can show them mocking!
The media thought something was tasteless??? Thats a first.
Oh isn’t this cute. The Fake Media still think anyone takes them seriously anymore.
