Kelly Sadler Who Mocked McCain's Health Leaves White House

A West Wing aide who dismissed the concerns of cancer-stricken Sen.

Sadler mocked McCain, who is suffering from brain cancer, at an internal meeting at the White House last month.

The White House announced the move almost a month after Sadler said in an internal meeting that McCain's opposition to Central Intelligence Agency nominee Gina Haspel did not matter because "he's dying anyway", remarks that were first reported by The Hill.

CNN had quoted a White House official as saying Sadler, speaking at a staff meeting, meant the comment as a joke but that it flopped. The sources did not say whether Sadler was sacked or if she left on her own accord.

"Kelly Sadler is a world-class person who made a flippant off-hand remark in private", Scaramucci tweeted.

It is unclear if Sadler's exit was a result of her comments about the Arizona senator, which were made during a White House internal staff meeting and subsequently leaked almost a month ago.

McCain has been a frequent critic of Trump.

The Trump administration declined to publicly apologize and Trump demanded a crackdown on whoever leaked the story to the media.

Sadler's comment was then leaked to the press and took over the news cycle for multiple days.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

A senior White House official told the New York Times more exits were expected in the coming weeks. During a closed-door meeting, the staffer said that Arizona Sen.

But people who don't trust their coworkers and think they're about to be fired rarely leak, so the White House should be good.
