John McCain Is Out at the White House

White House aide who made morbid joke about Sen. John Mc Cain leaves Trump administration

Kelly Sadler, the White House aide who caused outrage in May with a remark about the health of Senator John McCain, has left the White House.

"Kelly Sadler is no longer employed within the Executive Office of the President", wrote Raj Shah, the principal deputy press secretary, in an emailed statement.

In a comment at a meeting of the White House press team in May, Sadler dismissed John McCain's opposition to the nomination of Gina Haspel to be Central Intelligence Agency director by saying: "He's dying anyway".

CNN had quoted a White House official as saying Ms Sadler, speaking at a staff meeting, meant the comment as a joke but that it flopped.

The White House Communications aide criticized for making fun of Sen.

Almost a month later, Sadler seems to be out of a job. The sources did not say whether Sadler was sacked or if she left on her own accord.

Sadler could not immediately be reached for comment.

Sadler promised a public apology to Meghan McCain, but only apologized personally.

Prior to joining the administration, Sadler was a reporter with the conservative Washington Times and a contributor to Fox News. McCain has frequently been a target of Trump, who still occasionally derides him privately, according to aides.

Trump recently told people close to him that it's not just the junior people in the press or communications shop whom he suspects of leaking information, leading some Republicans close to the White House to wonder whether the reorganization could also affect more senior-level staff.

Sadler and the White House received widespread backlash for the remark, but the White House never publicly condemned it.
