Skip to comments.White House official mocked 'dying' McCain after Haspel criticism, sources say
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.

the piece of trash deserves it. Even before death he’s an asshole and he doesnt want to be mocked?
There are two sides to every story and John McCain is the a$$hole in both of them.
Hypocrite McPain voted for Obama CIA pick John Brennan who defended enhanced interrogation.
He had no moral qualms with Obama doing torture. He’s offended when Trump might do it.
Et tu, John?
Somehow McCain is still voting in the senate. I thought they had to be present to vote.
I wonder how many of his fellow soldiers lives were lost thanks to Songbird Johns selfish and traitorous actions.
“It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway”
Die quickly, please.
That’s mocking? And who the hell at the White House is leaking everything people say? Tattle tales.
He’s a Democrat in an R jersey.
The perfect Designated Loser for the Kenyanesian Usurper.
Read that a long time ago..that both were overheard during the campaign using that word against Sarah and also Todd
Funny how these leftists always get caught in their own (past remarks) TRAP!!
They NEVER learn.
I regret my vote for McCain. That it’s even debatable if we’d have been better off if McCain, at least a Republican on paper, beat Obama is insane to me but a valid and probably winning argument.
He’d have probably pulled us into 3 more ground wars, signed an amnesty bill and therefore plunged us into our second term of President Hillary Clinton by now. It’s also unknown whether President Trump, already a top 10 president of all time and probably top 5 by 2024, would have ever run.
Fox has been a mouthpiece for the Cheap Labor Express, same as the Wall Street Journal, for decades.
Two unnamed, likely fictional, White House sources.
He’s “Dyin’ John. I prefer people Dyin who aren’t dyin’.
How is waterboarding torture? Its one of the best non-tortures thst works.
I did find where McShame supposedly called his own wife (Cindy) that, tho.
I like the engraved tombstone.
I agree probably made up.
That said, McPain is a liberal wolf in GOP clothing.
That’s why the fake news media loves him - the Republican who always validates Democrats.
Indeed, he endorsed Obama when he was a presidential candidate.
What more really needs to be said? Good riddance.
