Republican Senator John McCain arrives on Capitol Hill, Washington on November 1
Sen. John McCain's daughter denounced two people on Friday who made critical comments to their sick father this week.
"One will speak of my father's legacy for hundreds of years," McCain said on ABC's "The View," where she is a co-host. Nobody Will Remember You. "
The Washington Post and other media reported Thursday that Kelly Sadler, a White House communications officer, rejected McCain's public opposition to President Trump's CIA candidate, by saying in a staff meeting, "It does not matter, he's dying anyway."
Older McCain (R-Ariz.), 81, remains in Arizona, where he is being treated for an aggressive and typically deadly type of brain tumor ,
A White House spokesman did not deny the report and said, "We respect Sen. McCain's service to our nation, and he and his family are praying at this difficult time." Separately on Thursday, General McMarney said during a performance The Fox Business Network, which tortured during McCain's five and a half years of captivity during the Vietnam War, worked on John. "That's why they call him, Songbird John & # 39 ;," McInerney said.
On Friday, Meghan McCain spoke directly to Sadler: "Kelly, here's a little news flash – and that might be a bit intense for 11 o'clock in the morning on a Friday – but we all die .I die, you die, we die And I want to say that since my dad diagnosed the past – it's almost a year, July 19th – I really feel like I understand the meaning of life, and so you do not die, that's how you live And I always had something that I could believe in, and my dad's about character and bipartisanship and something bigger than you, and believes in that country and believes in the fact that as an American we can still get together is something I grew up with and fed myself every day. "
She added a charge from Trump White House:" I do not understand the environment in which you work, if that's acceptable then you can go to the next day A work and still have a job.
Former Vice President Joe Biden intervened in the White House and defended McCain.
"People wondered when decency with this government would bottom out. It happened yesterday, "Biden said Friday." John McCain is a real hero – a man of valor whose sacrifices are immeasurable to his country. While he fights for his life, he deserves better – so much better. Given the attitude of the White House towards John and others, this employee is not the exception to the rule; she is the epitome of it.
Neither Sadler nor McInerney have publicly apologized, but Charles Payne, the Fox host who interviewed McInerney, apologized Thursday for not questioning the claim "Songbird John." Independent accounts of McCain's time in The North Vietnamese captivity has no indication that he has provided any essential information to his captors, and McCain says the same, but due to several reports, he refused early retirement because of his status as a naval admiral's son.
"It's a really ugly one Nickname, "said Meghan McCain on Friday." At some point, when you're tortured, everyone breaks. I understand that it works that way. And so you get wrong information. "
