This White House just keeps getting classier and classier.
A White House official mocked Sen. John McCain’s brain cancer diagnosis at an internal meeting on Thursday, a day after the Arizona Republican announced his opposition to President Trump’s nominee for CIA director, Gina Haspel.
Special assistant Kelly Sadler made the derisive comments during a closed-door White House meeting of about two-dozen communications staffers on Thursday morning.
“It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway,” Sadler said, according to a source familiar with the remarks at the meeting.
Hmm. Is that better or worse than the Fox News “analyst” mocking McCain on-air for being tortured during his time as a prisoner of war? Is there a metric for these things? What’s that unit of measurement gonna be called, any suggestions?
Both sources said they believed the comment was intended as a joke, but that it did not go over well with others at the meeting.
Yeah, everybody in conservatism considers themselves a real Dennis Miller. It’s all Sarah Sanders can do to keep the team from putting on a standup show in the press room.
