During a conference on the 10th of May, a White House employee, Kelly Sadler, made a mean comment regarding the health of Senator John McCain, who has frequently feuded with Donald Trump. Regarding the opinion of McCain on the new intelligence officer, Gina Haspel, Sadler supposedly said that “it doesn’t matter,” because John was “dying anyway.”
The same day, McCain’s wife, Cindy, tweeted out a message for Sadler which read, “May I remind you my husband has a family, seven children, and five grandchildren.”
Additionally, Meghan McCain, who has her own morning talk show, used her vehicle to talk about Sadler’s comments. Meghan said, “don’t feel bad for me or my family. We’re really strong.”
The host went on to say that every human being on the planet is in the process of dying from the moment they’re born until their final breaths on their death bed.
For that reason, one has to have a sense of humility and compassion for those who are at the end of life’s journey. The White House issued a statement on Thursday which said they “respect McCain’s service to the country.”
As you may know, McCain revealed last year that he had brain cancer. In a statement released previously, the 81-year-old’s family stated he was hospitalized at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona.
Additionally, the statement confirmed that McCain had been undergoing therapy at his home while in Cornville, Arizona. During that time, he had been visited many times by his friends, family, staff, and other colleagues.
As it was noted at the beginning of the article, John and Donald Trump have feuded several times in the past. During Trump’s campaign, Donald famously alluded to McCain’s imprisonment as a POW with a disparaging remark. The now-president said, “I like people who don’t get caught.”
