WATCH: Trump pretends not to hear reporters’ questions about an apology for John McCain

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Tuesday ignored reporters when he was asked if the White House owes Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) an apology after staffer Kelly Sadler mocked the Arizona senator because he is dying of brain cancer.

While walking through the Capital to a meeting with Republican lawmakers, Trump stopped to talk to a group of reporters and noted that First Lady Melania Trump was doing “really well” after undergoing a procedure on her kidney.

“The doctors were incredible” Trump said. “Walter Reed [hospital] was fantastic. Thank you very much.”

Before Trump could walk away, reporters shouted questions about how the White House intended to handle Sadler’s controversial remark that McCain “doesn’t matter” because he’s dying.

“Do you owe John McCain an apology?” one reporter bellowed.

But Trump waved and walked away with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) at his side.

Several Republican senators have already said that they will not confront Trump about the McCain remarks at today’s meeting.

Published

President Donald Trump went off on the "fake news media" yet again, after his own appointees announced he was willing to meet with Iran.

In an odd twist, Trump announced just three months ago he'd be willing to meet with no preconditions.

“Not as far as I’m concerned – no preconditions,” the president said in a Meet the Press interview. At another point in the interview, he also said: “I think they want to make a deal. And my deal is nuclear.”

"Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!" Trump tweeted Sunday.
