Meghan McCain’s not holding her breath for public apology; tells ABC News Sunday how she really feels

Meghan McCain is still waiting on a promised apology from the White House aide who mocked her father – and she thinks it will never come.

The co-host on ABC’s “The View,” said Sunday that Kelly Sadler told her she would publicly apologize for the callous comments she made about Arizona Sen. John McCain who is battling brain cancer, but still has not.

“When I had a conversation with Kelly, I asked her to publicly apologize and she said she would,” McCain told ABC News on Sunday. “I have not spoken to her since and I assume that it will never come.”

According to anonymous leakers, the White House communications official made the remarks during a closed-door White House meeting last week discussing McCain’s opposition to President Donald Trump’s pick to lead the CIA, Gina Haspel.

“It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway,” Sadler reportedly said about the 81-year-old Republican senator and  chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Sadler reportedly apologized to McCain’s daughter and her family in a private phone conversation, according to ABC News.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders denounced the leak, called the comment “unacceptable,”and reportedly “chewed out” her staff on Friday, according to ABC News via another leak, apparently.

During Friday’s airing of “The View” McCain said Sadler should be fired from her position.

“I don’t understand what kind of environment you’re working in when that would be acceptable and then you could come to work the next day and still have a job,” she said. “And that’s all I have to say about it.”
