Sen. Lindsey Graham would like to see the White House apologize for a "disgusting" joke that was made about the health of his friend, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who is battling brain cancer.
Last week, a White House press aide, Kelly Sadler, joked to colleagues during a closed-door meeting mocked McCains health after he called for his Senate colleagues to reject Gina Haspels nomination for CIA director. It doesnt matter, hes dying anyway, Sadler said.
Graham, R-S.C., said if this was in fact a joke, "it was a terrible joke."
"I just wish somebody from the White House would tell the country that was inappropriate, that's not who we are in the Trump administration," Graham told "Face the Nation" moderator Margaret Brennan for an interview that will air Sunday on CBS....

I think John Kasich would like to go out with him.
Stopth pickin’ on my manth jus’ stopth it! You right-wingersth are so meanth!!
If it happened at all there Linseed. It is after all true. You girlfriend is dying and I am tired of waiting for it.
I can’t see this being a joke. Seems like a frank, realistic observation. I don’t see any glee, mocking or celebration.
In all likelihood, McCain probably WILL be dead soon. Facts is facts...
When does Graham apologize for his miserable job as a Senator?
FU Graham and McCain....I would like McCain to apologize for hand walking the dossier in to Comey and putting the rest of us through hell.
Apology first, orange jump suit second
It wasn’t a joke.
I wish Linda Graham would drop dead.
Goobers next primary cant come soon enough.
The apology was offered to NoName’s daughter, so stay out of it, Linda. This was a leaked, private, spontaneous remark in a small group, not something stated from the Press Secretary at a podium.
Has L. Graham ever made a similar comment re Hillary, Obama, Biden?
I wish Linda Graham would apologize for calling Hitlery Rotten Clinton a national treasure.
I know how angry people are about McCain, and I have actually never trusted him or felt that he was truly a Republican. It is also worth remembering that Trump’s comments about him being captured were in response to McCain saying that Trump’s campaign was ‘bringing out the crazies’.
That said, I just think we do nothing productive by denigrating a dying man.
Even though I was an ‘old fart’ when this brevity BS started and people quit communicating in sentences and unable to spell,
EVEN I RECOGNIZED this as
“What about Sen McCain and his continuing shots at the WH etal”
Now I may think differently if I were a McCain ‘fan’ BUT I read this as
“We choose to not comment on any of the ridiculous ravings of a dying man. Let him go in peace” (OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT).
Hacks can run around with a likeness of a severed head that ‘resembles’ the President and that is ok...
Someone (sort of) tries to be polite and they get pilloried for it.
BUT, I still think it would have been better to say nothing rather than point out the obvious.
Aw, Lindsey feels neglected. Don’t worry. There’ll be plenty of time to make jokes about you when McCain’s gone.
Why don't you tell us the truth Linda? You are a "confirmed bachelor" who seems uninterested in women. What's that all about anyway. Don't you think it's past time that you came out of the closet? It's OK to play dress up like a woman, and I'm sure the world would love to see your haute couture collection.
Just do it, Linda. Put on your big girl panties and open the closet door!
If wishes were fishes
They would own the earth.
