John McCain's Wife Slams WH Aide's 'Joke' About Her Husband Dying

McCain's experiences during the war are broadly seen as a large part of the reason he has opposed President Donald Trump's controversial nominee for Central Intelligence Agency director, Gina Haspel, who has refused to denounce torture as immoral. Addressing the statements from both McInerney and Sadler, she said: "I don't understand the kind of environment you're working in where that would be acceptable and you can come to work the next day and still have a job". But his wife, Cindy McCain, responded sharply on Twitter in a post addressed to Sadler on Thursday, writing, "May I remind you my husband has a family, 7 children and 5 grandchildren".

In a statement, the White House said that they respect McCain and are offering him and his family prayers, but did not deny that the comment was made.

A Trump aide has been accused of mocking Arizona Senator John McCain's struggle with brain cancer in a private meeting with the White House communications team.

The White House aide who brushed off Sen. "We're really strong, there's so much more love and prayer and wonderful energy being generated towards us than anything negative at all", she responded.

The claims were first published by newspaper The Hill, who quoted a source familiar with the remarks. But keep in mind that McCain associates initially made light of his dying health when they leaked to the New York Times that McCain - who's planning his funeral - does not want Trump at his funeral.

In terms of the president, he or she McCain have had a troubled partnership. Hostin said the comment "infuriated" her, while Goldberg instructed the network to be more vigilant about screening its guests.

We got Clinton leaving The Pierre hotel in NYC Friday, and when our photog asked about the crass comment, you see him stop, turn, process his words and then speak.

McCain is joined by another Republican, Rand Paul, in opposing Haspel's nomination.

Mr McCain, 81, has been diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer, and has been resting at his family retreat in Sedona, Arizona in recent weeks. "The fact is-John McCain".

Meghan and Cindy McCain have responded to attacks on the ailing senator several times since his diagnosis.

A network spokesperson said McInerney would no longer be invited on the Fox Business Network or Fox News.

Sen. McCain, a Navy pilot who was beaten in captivity during the Vietnam War, has urged his fellow senators to reject Haspel. Now, McCain's arguing to colleagues that Haspel should be disqualified, but Graham said he told McCain he's wrong. "I like people that weren't captured", Mr Trump said in 2015. Fox host Charles Payne later apologized for not correcting him on the air.
