White House Refuses To Condemn Mocking Of John McCain’s Cancer: “I Won’t Validate A Leak” [VIDEO]

CNN reports:

The White House declined to comment Friday about a purported remark about Sen. John McCain by a communications staffer. “I’m not going to comment on an internal staff meeting,” press secretary Sarah Sanders said of Kelly Sadler’s remark that McCain, who is being treated for brain cancer, is “dying.” Sanders confirmed Sadler still works at the White House.

On Thursday, Sadler, a special assistant who handles surrogate communications, told other staffers that McCain’s opposition to President Donald Trump’s CIA director nominee, Gina Haspel, does not matter because “he’s dying anyway,” a White House official told CNN. The official said Sadler meant it as a joke, “but it fell flat.”
