White House refuses to acknowledge, condemn comment about McCain

McCain announced previous year that he had been diagnosed with brain cancer and has been spending time with family and loved ones while he receives treatment in Arizona.

White Home press secretary Sarah Sanders had a number of alternatives to sentence Sadler's feedback however as a substitute stated she wouldn't "validate a leak out of an inside workers assembly somehow". "It happened yesterday", Biden said in a striking statement. She reportedly made her cruel remark in a White House meeting on May 10, when several staffers were discussing Senator John McCain's decision to withhold his support for Donald Trump's nominee for Central Intelligence Agency chief, Gina Haspel.

"First I just want to say is, don't feel bad for me or my family".

"His vocation in life was making life better for people and better for the country", said Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican.

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. But she would not say whether Trump believes securing a deal to achieve that is possible in the short time - about a day-and-a-half - the two leaders will be together.

Sadler reportedly called Meghan McCain to apologize for the remark.

The senator's wife, Cindy McCain, said in a Twitter message targeted at Sadler Thursday evening: "May I remind you my husband has a family, 7 children and 5 grandchildren".

The White House's wish list once comprised a sweeping infrastructure measure, overhauling the federal welfare program, another try at tax cuts and an immigration bill.

"As a proud military veteran and son of a Vietnam Vet these words neither reflect my or the network's feelings about Senator McCain, or his remarkable service and sacrifice to this country".

The White House on Friday refused either to acknowledge or disown a purported barb about Sen.

There is "still some movement on that front", she said. He was a war hero because he was captured.

Meantime, while Sanders went limited in describing the 2018 agenda, she went broad when laying out Trump's goal for his planned summit next month with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. There was reportedly "discomfort" in the room after her comment.

Thomas McInerney will no longer be allowed on the network.

Last weekend, NBC reported that people close to McCain have asked Vice President Mike Pence to participate in the senator's funeral, not President Trump.

Meghan McCain called that a "real ugly nickname" on Friday. And neither she, her direct boss, Chief of Staff, General John Kelly nor President Donald Trump have issued any apology.
