GOP lawmaker calls on Trump to fire aide who mocked McCain's health

MSNBC host says reporters should ‘wring’ Sarah Huckabee Sander’s neck. Now the host is backtracking

It ended with the White House embroiled in a controversy over a staffer named Kelly Sadler who joked in a staff meeting that Sen.

Reports say that Kelly Sadler responded to McCain's opposition to President Trump's nominee for CIA Director by saying, "He's dying anyway".

Contradiction and 180 degree turns are nothing new to this White House.

The most disappointing part?

During Friday's daily press briefing, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders refused to address the matter, dodging questions about Sadler's comments.

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

Below, the 27 headlines that defined the week that was in Trumpworld.

Sadler is a special assistant to the president.

"People have wondered when decency would hit rock bottom with this administration". John McCain, R-Ariz., had passed, sending out a a draft email to reporters with a subject line that read, "VFW Remembers Sen".

McCain has been fighting an aggressive form of brain cancer. At the time, Trump said McCain was not a "war hero". She added that "we have respect for all Americans" without mentioning McCain by name.

'He's a "war hero" because he was captured, ' trump said then, referring to McCain's years undergoing torture as a prisoner of war.

On Friday, McCain's daughter Meghan, a co-host on ABC's "The View", shared her disdain by suggesting that the aide should've been fired for her insensitive remarks.

"First I just want to say is, don't feel bad for me or my family".

"I believe Gina Haspel is a patriot who loves our country and has devoted her professional life to its service and defense", McCain said.

If anyone knows what it means to be a war hero, it's President Trump.

I bet you wouldn't think it was ok at all if your beloved father was battling terminal cancer and he was dismissed as worthless because he was for dying. "John McCain fought for us in Vietnam, was a prisoner of war in Vietnam, came home and dedicated his life to public service". "The vile and repugnant attacks we've seen from POTUS, WH staff and the far right are disgusting and show how small they are next to this honorable man". She did not respond to requests for comment Thursday evening or Friday.

"The fact is, is John McCain - it worked on John", McInerney said. A Fox spokeswoman said Friday that retired Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney will no longer be allowed on the network.

The New York Times reported last weekend that McCain's associates had informed the White House that they do not plan to give Trump a speaking role at his funeral, to be held at Washington National Cathedral, but that Vice President Mike Pence would be welcome to attend.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in will visit the White House on May 22 for talks with President Donald Trump ahead of the planned Kim Jong Un summit, Sanders said.
