John McCain's absence weighs on the Senate

On Saturday's broadcast of the Fox News Channel's "Cavuto Live", OMB Director Mick Mulvaney responded to White House aide Kelly Sadler's comments about Senator John McCain (R-AZ) by stating the comment was "a badly considered joke, an terrible joke that she said fell flat".

"They are very bad", Mulvaney said of the comments on Cavuto Live.

"We have a respect for all Americans and that is what we try to put forward in everything we do both in word and in action", Sanders said.

CNN quoted a White House official as saying Sadler, speaking Thursday at a staff meeting, meant the comment as a joke but that it flopped.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders privately admonished communications and press staff on Friday over the leaked comment, according to several sources familiar with the meeting.

Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney defended one White House aide's offputting comments about Sen.

Sen. Angus King, I-Maine, said that if McCain were in Washington, he could speak directly to his colleagues, but "his statement was so clear it was hard to miss the point that he made".

"There is not a tone set here", Sanders said.

RJD alleges Lalu has been released with hands and legs tied,
Ranchi: The Jharkhand High Court on Friday granted jailed RJD chief Lalu Prasad six weeks provisional bail for medical treatment. Prasad's younger son and former deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav and daughter Misa Bharti, a Rajya Sabha MP, greeted Kumar.

Cindy McCain, the senator's wife, fired back on Twitter on Thursday, reminding Sadler of the human side of politics. "We have forgotten how to respectfully disagree".

After watching Haspel's Senate testimony Wednesday, McCain issued a statement saying that although Haspel is "a patriot" and a longtime public servant, her past work at the Central Intelligence Agency overseeing interrogation programs was "disturbing". "I don't understand what kind of environment you're working in where that would be acceptable and then you can come to work the next day and still have a job", she said. "It was a badly considered joke, an terrible joke, that she said fell flat".

"I feel people are taking advantage of a guy who is an American hero", said MacDonald, who served during Desert Storm.

A senior White Home official, too, stated that for now, Sadler was nonetheless employed with the administration.

"What was said yesterday goes beyond the pale; it's a moral failing and unacceptable", Kinzinger tweeted. "That tells you all you need to know about me and him", Graham said.

The reported remark by Sadler, a former opinion writer for the conservative Washington Times, came on the same day that a retired three-star general told Fox Business Network that the torture McCain endured as a prisoner of war in Vietnam "worked".

That was a reference to comments Mr. Trump made about McCain in 2015, saying he wasn't a war hero because "he was captured".
