    Yep, Sanders was very upset:
    Sanders scolded staff for leak of White House official’s ‘dying’ McCain comment: report
    In the meeting with communications staffers, Sanders called the comment by special assistant Kelly Sadler "unacceptable," according to ABC News, but sources told the network she was more upset over the leak of the remark.

    “I am sure this conversation is going to leak, too. And that’s just disgusting,” she said according to a report by Axios on Saturday.

    White House budget chief Mick Mulvaney on Saturday also condemned the comment making its way to the press. During an appearance on Fox News, Mulvaney called Sadler's comment a "bad joke" but said it was "inconsiderate" that it leaked.

    Did they chop off his head in effigy and wish the WH would blow-up? Yeah... feigned indignation... McCain is old and he's dying, which is sad, yes, terribly sad. But that was a private comment (in very poor taste, asinine) that should never have been divulged. I hope that person that divulge that crude, tasteless, statement about McCain is shown the door.

    Not on par with Hollyweird jerks and the Liberal "News" peoples on CNN and MSNBC.

    Yeah... Trumps fault too? I see how you roll. More hate from our resident Leftists. Look man that was a staffer that made a very tasteless comment. But to blow it up into something that Trump had nothing to do with. But the Liberals on the propaganda networks just proves the hate for our POTUS. And you blame him for it too...

    Yeah ... this is one of those “were sorry we got caught” type situations ... “shame on you leakers”. And gee, were they not just playing the victim card for a comedian picking of Huckelberry?

    Good grief, if you can't even just call out disgrace for what it is, have sense enough not to try to justify it with bu bu but deflections

    Do you have a problem reading? How much more can I add about it that I think it's in bad taste, and that it's an awful statement?

    Not at all, you led off that comment justifying it first...now you are deflecting. Sense

    Is this person not fired?

    I can't imagine a person saying something that tasteless could be to "too essential" to fire. I thought it was some press intern or random person on a conference call.

    I read it all and you seem unable not to justify or deflect to others. These are bad forms of argumentation.

    Better to simply call out disgraceful comments for what they are.

    I'm not going to kowtow to your wants and desires about how I should disseminate my thoughts here. Nice try though.

    Private comment? I thought it was on a conference call? It might have been dozens of people listening. The only fault lies with the classless tool who said the comment, not whomever "divulged" the comment.
