Joe Biden supports John McCain after 'dying' comment from White House aide

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders privately berated the White House communications and press staff Friday after a leak the previous day of comments by aide Kelly Sadler about Sen.

Sanders would not address the issue except to say that she wouldn't comment on an "internal staff meeting".

"I am sure this conversation is going to leak, too", a visibly upset and furious Sanders told attendees during Friday's meeting, Axios reported, citing five staffers who were in the room.

Senator McCain's daughter, Megan McCain, became emotional when asked about the comment during Friday morning's airing of The View. The White House said Thursday night in a statement: 'we respect Senator McCain's service to our nation and he and his family are in our prayers during this hard time.' Sanders says the White House has respect for all Americans.

Air Force veteran and former military analyst Thomas McInerney caused massive outrage yesterday for his interview on Fox Business Network where he bashed McCain for his opposition to Gina Haspel's nomination as CIA Director.

Congresswoman Val Dennings (D- FL) said McCain "represents all that is good and right with this country", praising his service and saying at the very least the White House should apologize.

Trump's sneering put-down of McCain notwithstanding, the Arizona senator is hardly the only target of Trump's disrespect, so Sanders' words are laughable.

Former Bernie Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver said the issue here is that the tone's set at the top, citing President Trump's campaign trail attack on McCain. McCain, meanwhile, has been one of the president's most prominent Republican critics and apparently does not want Trump at his funeral.

McCain has always denied giving up harmful information when he was a prisoner of war and when critics distributed a flyer during the 2008 SC presidential primary claiming he did, it was debunked by the fact-finding website PolitiFact.

"John McCain can be criticized for any political decision he's ever made or any vote he's ever cast, but he's an American hero", Graham said of the ailing Arizona senator and longtime friend. Payne tweeted that McInerney's remark was "very false and derogatory" and "should have been challenged".

The 81-year-old senator was diagnosed in July with glioblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer. "I stand with Kelly Sadler", Schlapp said. McCain was troubled by Haspel's refusal to say that torture is immoral during a Senate committee hearing. The talk show host told her co-hosts and the studio audience to not feel bad because both she and her family are strong.
