Trump White House Aide On John McCain: “It Doesn’t Matter, He’s Dying Anyway”

Sen. John McCain

White House communications aide Kelly Sadler demonstrated yesterday the Trump Nation disdain for being “politically correct” by offering a distasteful assessment of Sen. John McCain’s opposition to Trump’s nominee for CIA director, Gina Haspel.

Said Sadler of McCain, “It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway.”

From The Hill:

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.

For those who may not recall, McCain served his country in the Air Force, was a prisoner of war in Vietnam for years where he was tortured, spent decades in Congress and was the 2008 Republican presidential candidate.

Whether you agree or disagree with his political positions, few have dedicated their lives to the U.S. as McCain has. Surely in a White House meeting a little more decorum could be found?

But no. That would be “political correctness.”
