McConnell Calls For White House Aide To Publicly Apologize For McCain Joke

Source: Talking Points Memo



By Kate Riga | May 16, 2018 9:01 am

When asked if White House aide Kelly Sadler should apologize for her off-color joke about Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said Tuesday that she should “apologize and apologize publicly.”

Sadler said last week in a leaked comment that McCain’s opposition to CIA director nominee Gina Haspel didn’t matter since he was “dying anyway.” Neither she nor the White House has issued a public apology.

1. Trump himself mocked McCain!!!!

Where were all these idiots when that happened?!?!?!

Why aren't they calling on him to apologize.

Cowardly pieces of shit, each and every one.

2. And when she sees his passion and outrage

she will fall to her knees with a public apology, shamed by his order.

Actually, he sounds as if he was ordering coffee and a muffin at the Dunkin Donut. He really doesn’t give a shit... just words.

4. Even if Trump lets Sadler apologize (doubtful), it will be a "non-apology apology."

"If anyone was offended by what I had intended as a private joke, I am sorry."

6. It took the republicans this long to realize they have a PR disaster on their hands?

...and so they better try to cover their disrespectful asses. This is not motivated by honor or respect, but rather by the need to stop the bleeding from people realizing what low-grade, disrespectful a-holes the KGOP republicans truly are.

Shameful. They should have spoken up immediately after Dirty Donny*s staff trashed McCain. They truly are deplorable.

7. Why do they keep calling it a "joke"? Its a sort of pre-grave dancing....

I guess Turtle isn't showing any gratitude to cheetolini for hiring the second of one of his family to a gubmint job.

I think Mitch is making chin music over this and cheetolini knows it, either way we'd turn blue waiting for it, cheetolini will allow no apology.
