Mulvaney says McCain joke not a fireable offense

Meanwhile, the White House spokeswoman, Sarah Sanders, refused to give a clear answer whether Kelly Sadler had actually said that the senator's opinion on Central Intelligence Agency chief nominee Gina Haspel did not matter because "he's dying anyway".

Sanders refused to comment on the controversy at a press briefing on Friday, and Sadler remains gainfully employed at the White House.

"I'm not going to validate a leak one way or the other out of an internal staff meeting", Ms. Sanders said.

McCain's wife, Cindy, and daughter Meghan both quickly condemned the comments.

Maher continued by taking Hunter's temperature about the insults that have been made about McCain who is now battling brain cancer.

Swan also reports that at least one person openly defended Sadler during Friday's meeting: White House strategic communications director Mercedes Schlapp, who said, "You can put this on the record..."

Issuing a press release on Thursday, he said that the Senate Intelligence Hearing offered Haspel an opportunity to provide details about her experience in the agency, her involvement in the so-called enhanced interrogation program, and account for the mistakes the United States made in torturing detainees held in custody after the September 11 attacks. He left Washington in December and underwent surgery last month for an infection. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and "that's why they call him 'Songbird John, '" Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney will no longer be appearing on Fox News.

"I don't understand what kind of environment you're working in and that would be acceptable and then you can come to work the next day and still have a job", McCain said on "The View" Friday.

"My father's legacy is going to be talked about for hundreds and hundreds of years", she added. "I like people who weren't captured", Trump said.

"No. So, to be honest, we make fun because we're in the military, it's hard to ask someone who's been in the military and has made every crass joke known to man-worse than you've made, I mean really bad jokes", Hunter said.

McCain has always denied giving up harmful information when he was a prisoner of war and when critics distributed a flyer during the 2008 SC presidential primary claiming he did, it was debunked by the fact-finding website PolitiFact.

The crowd booed, and Trump added, "I won't use his name". Certainly there is not a tone set here.

"My dad's about character and bipartisanship and something greater than yourself, and believing in this country and believing in the fact that we as Americans can still come together", she said.
