  • White House aide who made morbid joke about Sen. John Mc Cain leaves Trump administration

Ex-White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said "someone had it out" for the White House communications aide who was quietly let go on Tuesday after making a comment about Sen.

McCain, 81, is battling brain cancer. Sadler reportedly blamed her boss, White House strategic communications director Mercedes Schlapp, who rebuffed Sadler's accusations.

Ms Sadler's remarks were widely condemned.

The White House did not say whether Sadler had been fired or left the job voluntarily.

"Kelly Sadler is no longer employed within the Executive Office of the President", White House spokesman Raj Shah said in a statement.

Donald Trump says he can pardon himself. Can he?
Trump's team argues that the president can't be forced to answer questions or be charged with obstruction of justice. Attorney Preet Bharara also told State of the Union it would be "outrageous" for Trump to pardon himself.

Sadler came under first last month after reports surfaced that she had disparaged McCain - who spent over five years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam - after he urged his fellow senators to reject Gina Haspel as Central Intelligence Agency director because of her history overseeing controversial techniques for interrogating detainees.

The Arizona senator - who was tortured during more than five years as a prisoner-of-war in Vietnam - had opposed US President Donald Trump's nominee over her waterboarding record.

The attacks, remarkable for their bluntness, triggered swift reaction from across the political spectrum, with politicians demanding an apology from Mr Trump that never came. On The View, Meghan addressed Sadler saying, "The thing that surprised me most is, I don't understand what kind of environment you're working in where that would be acceptable, and then you can come to work the next day and still have a job". She's the aide who mocked Sen.

Her father is "all about character and bipartisanship and something greater than yourself", Meghan McCain said, before adding a stinging message to the critics: "Nobody's going to remember you".

Trump has frequently attacked McCain, famously saying in 2015 that he prefers military heroes who "weren't captured".
