Kelly Sadler - the White House press aide - who made that idiotic comment about John McCain - "He's dying anyway" - now three weeks later has been fired.

How do people like that get their jobs in the first place? Although, considering who she was working for, I'm not so surprised.

Press aide who mocked McCain is out at the White House

By Noah Gray, Kevin Liptak and Pamela Brown, CNN

June 5, 2018

(CNN)Kelly Sadler, the White House communications aide who made a imprudent comment about Republican Sen. John McCain's health, was quietly let go Tuesday nearly a month after making the insensitive remark.

"Kelly Sadler is no longer employed within the Executive Office of the President," wrote Raj Shah, the principal deputy press secretary, in an emailed statement.

The White House had been strategizing an exit for Sadler for the last two weeks, a senior administration official said. There had been a discussion about relocating her to another agency or department outside of the White House, and it remains unclear if she is going somewhere else or leaving the administration entirely.

In the aftermath of the comment -- in which Sadler told a meeting that McCain's opposition to CIA director nominee Gina Haspel didn't matter because he's "dying" -- the White House refused to condemn her remark, and she did not apologize publicly. She remained on the staff for nearly a month before departing.

Privately, Sadler did apologize to McCain's daughter Meghan in a phone call. But afterward, Ms. McCain publicly questioned why Sadler still had a job at the White House.

Sadler's comment spurred an intensive effort inside the West Wing to seek out leakers. White House officials bemoaned an environment where presidential aides could not speak their minds in meetings without fearing their remarks could appear later in the press.

Senior aides have stopped short of ordering blanket firings, however. And it's not clear what other steps are planned to curtail the leaks.

The effort to find leakers has led to an acrimonious atmosphere at the White House, aides have told CNN. Sadler angered one of her remaining allies in the West Wing, communications staffer Mercedes Schlapp, when she told Trump in the Oval Office that she believed Schlapp was responsible for some of the leaks -- as Schlapp was looking on.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Sadler was a special assistant to the President, responsible for compiling and distributing talking points to administration allies.

She last sent an email on Tuesday morning touting the administration's accomplishments over Trump's first 500 days in office.

He calls our allies "dangers to our national security", he wants our enemy Russia reinstated to the G7 this after Congress puts sanctions economic sanctions on them. He divides us from our Allies, is Putin writing this script?

So the new swamp of Trump's own making has just reached new depths. A law suit has been launched by the New York State Attorney General's office alleging Trump and his three older children illegally used funds from the Trump Foundation, including making political donations and generally using it as a "personal checkbook" for unlawful payments to Trump and Trump businesses.

“The foundation is little more than an empty shell that functions with no oversight from its board of directors,” the lawsuit alleges. “Trump ran the foundation according to whim, rather than law.”

Trump says he will fight the case and will not settle. Huh? How many time has he said that before - and then settled? Trump University? Paid $25 million to settle! And how can he fight the case when the Board of the Foundation has not met since 1999? It's all slime!

Almost worse is that the Republican Senators and Congressmen remain camels with their heads stuck in concrete. They put up with the fake news, lying tweets, criminal and other actions of their Republican President and do f--- all. Edmund Burke had it right when he wrote -

"The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing . . . The greater the power, the more dangerous the abuse.

According to Trump's own words, the list includes several Nazis and white supremacists.

A lot of people's lives have been ruined, and the common denominator is their association with Trump. Anyone who has neither met nor has in any way ever been personally associated with Trump ought to be counting their blessings.
