Sanders: ‘Beyond my comprehension’ that White House wouldn’t apologize for McCain comment
“It is one thing in the White House for somebody to say something crude and stupid and disrespectful about an American hero,” Sanders said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “It is another thing for them not to apologize.”
McCain has expressed harsh opposition to Haspel over her involvement in the CIA’s enhanced interrogation program during the George W. Bush administration.
Sadler reportedly called Meghan McCain to apologize for the comment about her father, but the White House has yet to directly address it.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders dodged questions about the remark in Friday’s press briefing, and other Trump administration officials have passed the comment off as a “bad joke,” lamenting instead the leaks coming from the White House.
