John McCain's (R-AZ) opposition to Central Intelligence Agency director nominee Gina Haspell because he's "dying" still works in the administration, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Friday.

Sanders mostly refused to engage reporters' questions about Sadler's remark, saying that she didn't want to validate a leak from an internal White House meeting.

Although Meghan has not publicly offered a response to the insensitive comments or subsequent apology, she did retweet her mother Cindy McCain's post yesterday.

The White House issued a statement Thursday: "We respect Sen".

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

Former Vice President Joe Biden said Friday that "decency" in the White House had hit "rock bottom" following a White House aide's joke about Sen. She has declined to respond to requests for comment on her McCain remark. He left Washington in December and underwent surgery last month for an infection.

The original comment was made at a closed-door meeting attended by two dozen staffers on Thursday morning, one day after McCain released a statement calling on the Senate to oppose the nomination of Haspel. "That's why they call him 'Songbird John'". "I don't call it torture, let's call it 'really mean interrogation techniques.' They're not on the medieval rack, this isn't the end of Braveheart".

Mother's Day has endured test of time
White carnation flowers, her mother's personal favorite, were given to each mother and child who attended the service. It's a handsome place for us to come together as a family - and my mom always looks forward to us visiting.

"My father's legacy is going to be talked about for hundreds and hundreds of years", she added. McCain's has said his defiance of his captors was motivated by a loyalty to his fellow American prisoners of war.

Senator Warren, who took to Twitter to express her views, said that Haspel's involvement in the U.S.'s discredited torture program makes her unfit to lead the Central Intelligence Agency.

Haspel faced grilling Wednesday by the Senate Intelligence Committee about her role overseeing some CIA operations after the September 11 attacks. I'm dying, you're dying, we're all dying.

After watching Haspel's Senate testimony Wednesday, McCain issued a statement saying that although Haspel is "a patriot" and a longtime public servant, her past work at the Central Intelligence Agency overseeing interrogation programs was "disturbing".

As for the president, he and McCain have had a troubled relationship.

The crowd booed, and Trump added, "I won't use his name".

"We have a respect for all Americans and that is what we try to put forward in everything we do both in word and in action", Sanders said.
