Meanwhile, the White House spokeswoman, Sarah Sanders, refused to give a clear answer whether Kelly Sadler had actually said that the senator's opinion on Central Intelligence Agency chief nominee Gina Haspel did not matter because "he's dying anyway".
The White House later commended McCain's service to his country, but refused to address the aide's comment when pressed Friday.
Sanders tells reporters she's 'not going to validate a leak out of an internal staff meeting one way or the other.' She did not mention McCain's name. The White House said Thursday night in a statement: 'we respect Senator McCain's service to our nation and he and his family are in our prayers during this hard time.' Sanders says the White House has respect for all Americans.
Maher continued by taking Hunter's temperature about the insults that have been made about McCain who is now battling brain cancer.
She was at the meeting standing at the other side of the room and did not apologize for the comment, according to people in the room. He left Washington in December and underwent surgery last month for an infection.
"I certainly have respect for numerous things that he's accomplished, and so much respect for his family", said Sarah Palin, McCain's former running mate. "John McCain fought for us in Vietnam, was a prisoner of war in Vietnam, came home and dedicated his life to public service".
NASA Is Sending A Helicopter To Mars. That Is Not A Typo

"I don't understand what kind of environment you're working in when that would be acceptable and then you can come to work the next day and still have a job", she said on Friday's show. She told senators that she doesn't believe torture works as an interrogation technique.
Mulvaney said, "I think the remarks were terrible".
As for the president, he and McCain have had a troubled relationship.
Sanders was asked repeatedly if President Trump bears responsibility for setting the tone in the White House.
Trump's sneering put-down of McCain notwithstanding, the Arizona senator is hardly the only target of Trump's disrespect, so Sanders' words are laughable.
"They are very bad", Mulvaney said of the comments on Cavuto Live.
