Fox News Bans Guest Analyst Who Said Torture 'Worked' on John McCain

John Mc Cain being treated in a hospital in Hanoi Vietnam in 1967

A White House official dismissed a view expressed by Sen.

But she's refusing to otherwise weigh in on or condemn the comments.

"I'm not going to validate a leak one way or the other out of an internal staff meeting", Ms. Sanders said.

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".

Haspel, the CIA's acting director, issued a statement: "I have the utmost respect for Senator McCain and I appreciate the thoughtfulness with which he has approached this nomination process". @MeghanMcCain responds White House aide Kelly Sadler who mocked Sen. "I like people that weren't captured".

On Friday, friends rallied to defend McCain against a White House official's cruel joke that his positions don't matter because 'he's dying anyway'.

The 81-year-old Arizona Republican, who has spent three decades in the Senate, was diagnosed in July with glioblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer. He left Washington in December and few expect him to return.

"I don't perceive what sort of setting you're working in when that might be acceptable and you'll come to work the subsequent day and nonetheless have a job", McCain stated. Flake is undecided on Haspel and said McCain's position is weighing on his own decision-making.

They watched a classic Western, "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" - with McCain narrating along the way in words that cannot be repeated - and talked about McCain's book, which Graham says couldn't have come at a better time. "And that's just disgusting", she said according to a report by Axios on Saturday.

Haspel faced grilling Wednesday by the Senate Intelligence Committee about her role overseeing some CIA operations after the September 11 attacks. "I stand with Kelly Sadler", she said, according to Axios.

As for the president, he and McCain have had a troubled relationship.

On Friday, the former vice president denounced Sadler's comments as the end of "decency" in an administration that already had that quality in extremely short supply.

Her role in overseeing the use of torture by Americans is "disturbing", he says.

During the presidential campaign in 2015, then-candidate Trump - who received multiple academic and medical deferments to avoid the draft during the Vietnam War - said McCain was only considered a war hero "because he was captured", adding "I like people who weren't captured".

But if Trump has not set a tone of disrespect for McCain in his White House, how did this happen?
