Meghan McCain hinted Friday that the White House staffer who joked about her dad dying should be fired.
The 33-year-old daughter of Arizona Sen. John McCain called out White House special assistant Kelly Sadler on “The View” for her glib comments the day before.
“Kelly, here’s a little news flash, and this may be a bit intense for 11 o’clock in the morning on a Friday, but we’re all dying,” Meghan, a co-host on the ABC show, said. “…It is not how you die, it is how you live.”
Meghan also staunchly defended her 81-year-old Republican father, who was diagnosed with brain cancer in July.
“My dad’s all about character and bipartisanship and something greater than yourself and believing in this country and believe in the fact that we, as Americans, can still come together,” she said.
On Thursday, Sadler remarked, “It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway” in response to the senator’s opposition to Gina Haspel’s nomination as CIA director.
Sadler called Meghan that evening to apologize – but the talk show co-host left little doubt about her feelings.
“I don’t understand what kind of environment you’re working in when that would be acceptable and then you could come to work the next day and still have a job,” Meghan said. “And that’s all I have to say about it.”
On Friday, the senator’s wife Cindy also shot back against Sadler by mentioning her in a tweet that said, “May I remind you my husband has a family, 7 children and 5 grandchildren.”
