White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters she would not comment on an internal staff meeting, but said that Kelly Sadler, the aide in question, remains a White House staffer. The briefing is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. EST. The Hill also noted that a second source confirmed Sadler's comments but couldn't be sure of the exact wording.

The Hill reported that, in a closed-door meeting on Thursday, special assistant Kelly Sadler dismissed McCain's opposition to President TrumpDonald John TrumpPruitt dined with Cardinal accused of sexual abuse: report Kelly: No consideration on leaving White House despite "times of great frustration" Kelly: Trump "embarrassed" by Russian Federation probe MORE's Central Intelligence Agency nominee, saying, "It doesn't matter, he's dying anyway".

Meghan McCain told viewers not to "feel bad for me or my family". "The fact is, John McCain, it worked on John".

Meghan McCain and her co-hosts on "The View" wasted no time Friday morning before launching into a response to White House aide Kelly Sadler's shockingly insensitive comment on Meghan McCain's father, Sen.

Other topics that might come up include Michael Cohen's lobbying work, Trump's speech last night in IN, and the recent developments surrounding Iran and North Korea. He left Washington in December and underwent surgery last month for an infection.

Atlas last year achieved the ability to backflip last year in November, and in a few months' time it has turned into a pro jogger. Boston Dynamics shared a new video Thursday of its famous humanoid robot jogging across a lawn and up a hill.

McCain has been a long-standing critic of the use of torture methods by the United States, having spent time as a prisoner of war during the Vietnam War, during which time he was himself tortured.

McCain's wife Cindy responded with a tweet tagged to Sadler.

Maybe then John McCain's family wouldn't have to be outraged - but outraged they are after hearing that a White House official mocked the Senator's brain cancer diagnosis in a closed-door meeting this week. Independent accounts of McCain's time in North Vietnamese captivity do not include any suggestion that he offered any material information to his captors, and McCain says the same. Coming to her father's defense, she said his "legacy is going to be talked about hundreds and hundreds of years". Fox Business Network host Charles Payne apologized to McCain and his family on Twitter for failing to intervene in the conversation, saying he hadn't caught the remarks.

In the early weeks of his presidential campaign, Trump sparked national outrage when he said McCain is "not a war hero" because he was shot down and captured as a Navy pilot during the Vietnam War.
