Most of America is currently in a state of disgust after hearing the comments that spewed from the right yesterday. A White House official by the name of Kelly Sadler ridiculed terminally ill Sen. McCain, and a Fox News guest called him “Songbird John” during a thoroughly sickening TV appearance.
The negative backlash on Twitter has been immense as tweets roll in from high-profile TV personalities, political figures, and the McCain family.
Sen. McCain’s wife, Cindy, sent a message directly to Sadler to remind her that she just insulted a man with a family.
Cindy wrote, “May I remind you my husband has a family, 7 children and 5 grandchildren.”
@kellysadler45 May I remind you my husband has a family, 7 children and 5 grandchildren.

Sadler reportedly delivered the controversial comment during a meeting when the topic of McCain’s opposition to Gina Haspel arose. Sadler said that his opinion didn’t matter because he’s “dying anyway.”
Ana Navarro called out Sadler and the entire conservative community, writing:
“The White House communications official who mocked ‘dying’ McCain during a meeting, is @kellysadler45. Our taxes pay her damn salary.”
She added, “Oh, one more thing. Kindly, don’t ever talk to me again about the cruelty of a “smoky-eye” joke.”

Even conservative firebrand Joe Walsh condemned Sadler:
Kelly Sadler's comments about John McCain are reprehensible. To mock someone dying of cancer is grotesque, to mock a POW American Hero who's dying of cancer is inexcusable.
There's no room for comments like that in politics.
Let us all say a prayer for the McCain Family.

Tony Posnanski reminded:
With Kelly Sadler hoping a war hero with cancer will die soon and Donald Trump getting a crowd to boo Barack Obama…
It is clear that Melania Trump’s “Be Best” campaign is working well.

How are you spending your Thursday night? I’m spending mine checking all the Twitter accounts of people who lost their mind over Michelle Wolf (a comedian) to see if they bother to react over Kelly Sadler (a WHITE HOUSE OFFICIAL).

Kelly Sadler should resign.
Any member of the Trump administration who does not demand Kelly Sandler’s resignation should resign.
Any WH staffer who did not walk out of that meeting should resign.
Hell, they should all resign.https://t.co/cnMUHh2kuM

And what exactly has Kelly Sadler sacrificed for this country? When has she ever had skin in the game?

Kelly Sadler is the White House aide who mocked John McCain’s terminal condition. May her career be in terminal condition.

I hope the WH Aide, Kelly Sadler, never has to watch his/her parent fight aggressive cancer and see them take their last breath.
Kelly Sadler is an example of the stain this administration is upon America.
Standing with you, @cindymccain & @MeghanMcCain

The voice is the voice of Kelly Sadler, but the spirit is the spirit of Donald Trump.

John McCain is a war hero, and whether you respect him as a politician or not, he’s always been loyal to America. As opposed to Donald Trump, who committed treason. How dare Kelly Sadler or anyone else in the traitorous Trump administration make fun of McCain because he’s dying?

Where’s the outrage? Or is that only over Sarah Sanders at the WH Correspondents dinner? https://t.co/6elKydT3Qn
