Trump Aide Dismisses McCain's Objection to CIA Nominee: 'He's Dying'
Meghan McCain, a conservative commentator on ABC's popular morning talk show "The View", delivered an eloquent defense of her father, who is battling brain cancer at home in Arizona.
"I'm not going to validate a leak out of an internal staff meeting one way or the other", she said. "It happened yesterday", Biden said in a statement to NBC News. She reportedly made her cruel remark in a White House meeting on May 10, when several staffers were discussing Senator John McCain's decision to withhold his support for Donald Trump's nominee for Central Intelligence Agency chief, Gina Haspel.
"For the life of me, I can't understand", politics analyst Gloria Borgersaid.

"John S. McCain III, who died (today/yesterday) after battling brain cancer", the body of the email read.
Refusing to address problems head-on so they continue to dominate the news is kind of the White House's thing.

'Yes, she does, ' Sanders said.
Members of Congress rallied behind their ailing, war-hero colleague.
Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., said shortly after the story broke that it was "unacceptable" for anyone in the Trump administration to "cruelly mock veterans" like McCain, no matter their political or policy differences. But we're all dying. "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".

Thomas McInerney will no longer be allowed on the network. She did not respond to a request for comment Thursday evening.
