BREAKING: Aide Who Made Comment About McCain ‘Dying’ Out at WH

Kelly Sadler, the White House aide who made that infamous nasty comment about John McCain, is no longer at the White House.

Per CNN:

Kelly Sadler, the White House communications aide who made a imprudent comment about Republican Sen. John McCain’s health last month, no longer works in the administration, three sources with knowledge of the matter said on Tuesday.

It was reported weeks ago that in talking about McCain’s opposition to Gina Haspel as CIA director, Sadler said, “It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway.”

This immediately set off a firestorm as the White House focused on the outrage of the leaks more than the outrage of the comment itself.

You can watch CNN’s report above.
