White House Declines to Condemn Aide's McCain Remark

"The fact is, with John McCain, it worked on John".

It was a wide-ranging interview, but Lauren asked the Senator about his fellow Senator and friend John McCain after reports a White House aide said McCain's view on Central Intelligence Agency pick Gina Haspell doesn't matter because "he's dying anyway".

Arizona's junior US senator, Jeff Flake, told Fox News on Friday that he spoke with McCain by phone that morning, and said his 81-year-old colleague was "doing better" than he had been recently. "The man is practically on his death bed from brain cancer".

Kelly Sadler: 'He's dying anyway': White House official mocked Sen.

The White House probably thinks it can not punish Kelly Sadler for her very bad comment about John McCain because President Trump has also said nasty things about McCain.

McCain, who is being treated for terminal brain cancer, said he would oppose Gina Haspel's nomination because of her involvement in a Bush-era enhanced interrogation program. After that, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey can opt to appoint a senator to serve until a special election can be held in 2020. Andy Biggs, Paul Gosar, Debbie Lesko, Martha McSally and David Schweikert.

Two dead after light aircraft crashes in Offaly
The crashed aircraft was found approximately 2 kilometres from the Clonbullogue Airfield they had departed from earlier. Eddie Fitzpatrick, a local councillor, added the airfield is popular for parachuting and "fundraising jumpers".


Gerson said Biden stood in honorably for McCain in March, when the academy named the Arizona senator one of its distinguished graduates. "As he fights for is [sic] life, he deserves better - so much better", Biden continued. She also took the opportunity to reflect on her belief that the tone of the White House staff is set by its leader, President Trump. And it's also unbelievable that a president who makes repeated shows of being so patriotic, could be so nasty to McCain, and also to Gold Star families. "There are words - four letter ones", Kerry wrote. "That's why they call him Songbird John", McInerney said Thursday on Fox Business Network. McInerney was then asked about his opinion on McCain opposing Haspel's nomination because Haspel believes in torture and thinks that it works.

In 1967, while flying a mission over North Vietnam, his plane was shot down. He was a war hero because he was captured.

Ms. Sadler works in the White House communications office focusing on illegal immigration.

"He's the only one who's been through this", Flake said, adding, "I obviously share his views on torture, and I always have, so his views mean a lot".

If this is Washington's long goodbye to a sometimes favorite son, it's also a reemergence of old resentments and political fault lines that continue to split the nation.

As a GOP presidential candidate in 2015, Trump said McCain was "not a war hero" because he was captured in Vietnam, adding, "I like people who weren't captured".
