  • The White House communications aide who angered Sen. John McCain's family by mocking his brain cancer is no longer employed by the government

Kelly Sadler, a White House communications aide and the special assistant to President Donald Trump, no longer works in the Trump administration following a controversial comment she made about Sen.

- White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah said in the statement.

Sadler remained employed in the White House for almost a month after making an insensitive comment about McCain in a closed meeting on May 10 because he opposed Trump's nomination of Gina Haspel for Central Intelligence Agency director. John McCain's opinion "doesn't matter" because "he's dying anyway".

CNN had quoted a White House official as saying Sadler, speaking at a staff meeting, meant the comment as a joke but that it flopped.

The White House has not disputed the remark Sadler reportedly made, only issuing a statement shortly afterward: "We respect Senator McCain's service to our nation and he and his family are in our prayers during this hard time".

Breakthrough breast cancer study means fewer women needing chemotherapy
The patients in this group were randomly assigned to chemotherapy with supplemental hormone therapy or just hormone therapy alone. The study published on Sunday, on which early-stage breast cancer patients can forgo chemo, is by far the most impactful so far.

Trump, who was infuriated by the release of the information to the news media, called Sadler and other communications staffers into the Oval Office to ask who might have leaked Sadler's comments. It is unclear whether Sadler was sacked or resigned. The president, who very rarely says sorry, did not demand an apology - even though other aides said Sadler should.

The White House had been strategizing an exit for Sadler for the last two weeks, a senior administration official said.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment. During a closed-door meeting, the staffer said that Arizona Sen.

"Look, I can tell you there are a couple of bad actors", Sanders said mid-last month, and added that leaking "is disgusting and some of the most shameful behavior that you could ever engage in".
