Bill Clinton Shades White House Over 'Dying' McCain Diss

Jeff Flake, Arizona's other senator and a frequent critic of the White House under Trump, tweeted an article about the comments and wrote: "There are no words". John McCain on Thursday, taking baseless shots at his failing health and his past as a prisoner of war.

Sen. McCain, a Navy pilot who was beaten in captivity during the Vietnam War, has urged his fellow senators to reject Haspel.

On Thursday, White House aide Kelly Sandler reportedly quipped during a meeting that the senator's opposition to CIA Director nominee Gina Haspel "doesn't matter" since "he's dying anyway".

The "joke", told during a closed door meeting of nearly 24 communications staffers at the White House, "fell flat", according to CNN's Jim Acosta.

"Kelly, here's a little news flash, and this may be a little intense for 11 o'clock in the morning on a Friday, but, we're all dying", McCain said.

The show's host apologized to the senator's wife, "Yes, I will and hope you accept my apology".

"I just really want to emphasize, it was a hard day yesterday", Meghan McCain said of McInerney's comment.

Meanwhile, Cindy McCain clapped back at Sadler on Twitter, writing: "May I remind you my husband has a family, 7 children and 5 grandchildren".

But I know I don't have to do a thing and probably in a couple of years, we'll own 6 percent without laying out another dollar. Buffet made the comments at Berkshire Hathaway's annual shareholders meeting Saturday in Omaha, Nebraska.

"My father's legacy is going to be talked about for hundreds and hundreds of years", she added.

Former Republican campaign manager and MSNBC analyst Steve Schmidt said Sanders actually compares unfavorably to al-Sahhaf because she is Trump's "accomplice".

"The thing that surprises me most", said Meghan McCain on "The View", where she co-hosts. The president has insulted McCain in the past, shockingly saying during the 2016 presidential race that he only likes members of the armed forces who don't get captured.

Last year, McCain revealed that he had been diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer. She failed to react to your request for comment Thursday afternoon.

While Trump backed away from his initial remarks, he has frequently taken veiled swipes at McCain for failing to back his agenda as president. Mr. Trump has never served in the military.

Whoopi Goldberg and Sunny Hostin responded to another unfortunate comment about McCain. In an appearance on "The View" in December, Biden said he and McCain are like "two brothers".

US President Donald Trump has always been a critic of Mr McCain, and drew widespread condemnation from Republicans during his presidential campaign when he implied that the former Navy pilot was "not a war hero".
