The White House communications aide who angered Sen. John McCain's family by mocking his brain cancer is no longer employed by the government

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci defended special assistant Kelly Sadler after she was sacked over her comments about Senator John McCain's health.

Kelly Sadler, the aide who was ousted from the White House after making disparaging remarks about Sen.

Sadler mocked McCain, who is suffering from brain cancer, at an internal meeting at the White House last month.

Two unnamed sources told The Hill on May 10 that Sadler dismissed McCain's opposition to the nomination of the new Central Intelligence Agency director by joking, "he's going to die soon anyway". The White House would not condemn her remark and was said to have assured her that she would not lose her job over the remark.

Two unnamed sources told the Daily Beast that Sadler's accusations made Schlapp furious, and shortly after a private staff meeting, she referred to her as a "b*tch".

A spokeswoman for Ryan, AshLee Strong, said he would attend the first meeting instead of the second one. "It's time to admit the Russian Federation investigation was illegitimate from the start".

Conway declined to say why Sadler left her job in the White House, which was first reported on Tuesday.

McCain's wife, Cindy, also tweeted to Sadler, "May I remind you my husband has a family, 7 children and 5 grandchildren". It was unclear whether her departure was specifically tied to her comment about Arizona Sen.

But instead of a mass exodus, people are expected to leave one by one or in small groups as the White House tries to avoid a spate of negative headlines, or the impression that it's firing people for allegedly leaking information without any tangible evidence. McCain suffers from a rare form of brain cancer called glioblastoma.

The White House then cut down the size of communications meetings, aides said.

Sadler was a special assistant to the president, responsible for putting together talking points for administration allies, the network reported.
