White House Official Apologizes To Meghan McCain For Mocking Her Father’s Brain Cancer Diagnosis

The Hill reports:

A White House official called Meghan McCain on Thursday to apologize after she mocked Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) cancer diagnosis during a meeting earlier in the day, a source told The Hill.

The Hill first reported Thursday that special assistant Kelly Sadler brushed off the senator’s opposition to President Trump’s nominee for CIA director, Gina Haspel, saying, “It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway.”

Sadler later called the senator’s daughter Meghan McCain to apologize, according to a source. Meghan McCain has not publicly responded to the comments herself, beyond retweeting her mother, Cindy, who chided the White House official.
