White House aide who mocked McCain reportedly loses job

The Trump administration communications aide who made a cruel comment about ailing Arizona GOP Sen. John McCain’s health last month is out of a job, CNN reported Tuesday.

The aide, Kelly Sadler, said during a discussion on McCain’s opposition to CIA director nominee Gina Haspel that his vote didn’t matter because he’s “dying” anyway.

The White House refused to condemn her remark, brushing it off as a joke.

McCain is battling terminal brain cancer.

And, though she apologized, she remained on the staff for nearly a month before departing.

Sadler was a special assistant to the president, responsible for putting together talking points for administration allies, the network reported.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether she was canned or resigned.

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