A White House spokesman did not dispute the report and issued a statement on behalf of the White House: "We respect Senator McCain's service to our nation and he and his family are in our prayers during this hard time".

"I am not going to get into the forwards and backwards as a result of, you recognize, folks wish to create problems with leaked workers conferences", Sanders stated.

Ryan's remarks come in the wake of news that a White House aide mocked McCain's health, saying "he's dying anyway" in response to the senator's opposition to President Donald Trump's pick to lead the CIA, Gina Haspel. Current senator and former prisoner of war John McCain said that he will not vote in favor of the agent who beat a pregnant woman until she delivered a four pound baby.

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".

"John McCain is a genuine hero - a man of valor whose sacrifices for his country are immeasurable".

Imagine being "angry and depressed about our politics" not because an illiberal wannabe tyrant & his gang of crooks are imposing tangible suffering on thousands of vulnerable people. but because someone said a mean about St. John McCain.

Sadler's comments drew bipartisan condemnation.

Former Vice President Joe Biden issued a putting assertion Friday saying the White Home had lastly hit all-time low.

Asked to comment on the comment, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders refused to apologize, instead insisting "I'm not going to comment on an internal staff meeting, ".

"People have wondered when decency would hit rock bottom with this administration".

"What was said yesterday goes beyond the pale; it's a moral failing and unacceptable", Kinzinger tweeted.

"Willful ignorance, I would say we just witnessed", Keillar continued.

A White House official told CNN on Thursday, "We respect Senator McCain's service to our nation, and he and his family are in our prayers during this hard time".

"The actual fact is John McCain - it labored on John", retired Air Pressure Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney informed host Charles Payne. "That's why they call him Songbird John", McInerney said Thursday on Fox Business Network.

"Our politics" = what a Republican White House aide said about a Republican senator because the Republican senator opposes torture and the Republican president doesn't.

Ms McCain thanked the public for its support. "I believe the Senate should exercise its duty of advice and consent and reject this nomination".
