John McCain, a political foe of President Donald Trump, is fighting a valiant battle with cancer.
But McCain, whose harrowing experience in a North Vietnamese prison camp was once mocked by his fellow Republican who said that he preferred soldiers who did not get captured, is making a maverick move by opposing Donald Trump’s nominee to lead the CIA, Gina Haspel, as a result of her involvement in torture.
“It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway,” Sadler said of McCain’s opposition.
Sadler has gotten push-back on Twitter from many people who are demanding she resign.
Here’s a sampling of the comments.
Trump has been unable to hire competent people. Exhibit A is Kelly Sadler.
Today, Sadler mocked Sen. John McCain’s brain cancer at a meeting in front of 20 or so Trump incompetents where McCain’s vote was being discussed.

A WH official confirms WH aide Kelly Sadler mocked John McCain’s cancer diagnosis saying “he’s dying anyway” in response to his opposition to Haspel nomination. The “joke… fell flat” the official said.

Kelly Sadler should resign.
Any member of the Trump administration who does not demand Kelly Sandler’s resignation should resign.
Any WH staffer who did not walk out of that meeting should resign.
Hell, they should all resign.https://t.co/cnMUHh2kuM

The White House communications official who mocked “dying” McCain during a meeting, is @kellysadler45. Our taxes pay her damn salary.
Oh, one more thing. Kindly, don’t ever talk to me again about the cruelty of a “smoky-eye” joke. https://t.co/sGtDlcsJD4

I hope the WH Aide, Kelly Sadler, never has to watch his/her parent fight aggressive cancer and see them take their last breath.
Kelly Sadler is an example of the stain this administration is upon America.
Standing with you, @cindymccain & @MeghanMcCain

Kelly Sadler (who?) will eventually get old and sick and die. But no one will care. She is not a national hero. She is nobody. And nobody will give a grand f*ck when she is gone. But losing John McCain is a tragedy for the entire world.

@LouiseMensch now this is who is reported to have said the incredibly mean-spirited comment about Senator McCain, that we should ignore him because he will be dead soon anyways. Turns out she is on Twitter. I dropped by to ask her if she really said those things, others could too https://t.co/4oXCoYZnSx

I don’t even like McCain and this pisses me off. This is how far off the rails these people are now. They’re eating their own. There’s not going to be any of them left soon. https://t.co/RUt47pPZx8

Our Country deserves better. So much unkindness and hatred has been unleashed with this administration. That was NOT A JOKE those are words directly from aides that have no empathy or historical understanding of who Senator McCain is.

This is a Trump White House reality, and this type of ignorance is expected. SMDH! So disrespectful to Senator McCain

So in leiu of actual proof you’re gonna demean a veteran on his death bed? I wasn’t a fan of McCain’s politics but, cmon, there’s a basic level of decency folks in our country used to adhere to. Be best, lady.

@kellysadler45 You’re a disgrace. Apologize to the entire McCain family, then resign.

Yeah, I’m not a fan of McCain in general, and disagree with him on a great number of things, but I still have respect for him. https://t.co/kI8RsEg1Tr

Kelly Sadler is the White House aide who mocked John McCain’s terminal condition. May her career be in terminal condition.

There is not one person in the GOP that can measure up to John McCain's shoe heels. Kelly Sadler and all who did not walk out after that – may you get your just comeuppance . Karma will get you. https://t.co/0ejkqPmkox
