GOP Rep. Walter Jones (N.C.) on Thursday introduced legislation that would instruct the House to call on the White House to formally apologize for a staffers insensitive comments that Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) was dying anyway.
Jones, a vocal critic of President Trump, rolled out the resolution after becoming outraged by comments made about McCain by White House aide Kelly Sadler and her refusal to publicly apologize, The Hill has learned.
Last year, McCain was diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer, and the longtime senator is now receiving treatment at his home near Sedona, Ariz.
House Resolution 901 was introduced with one co-sponsor, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.), and will now be circulated in the House.
Whereas every family deserves dignity and respect in the trying times of a loved ones declining health; Whereas our religious and social traditions call upon us to apologize for wrongdoing, states the Jones resolution, which was obtained by The Hill.

I suggest a resolution that McCain apologize for being a traitor. Repeatedly a traitor.
Stuff it Jones!
A lot of people are probably owed apologies from McCain
(including Sarah Palin).
Dear Mr. McPain,
I am very sorry that you are such a total dipsh*t.
I will celebrate your demise, may it be soon.
The entire White House Staff & POTUS
They can go straight to hell. The weak knees of the Republicans make me want to vomit. On them.
I’d like to offer my apology to everyone for voting for McCain in 2008.
Trump will laugh at them and call them sad.
The deep state stooges strike again. At least, they try to.
This sap introduced legislation, no less. I’m glad there are no pressing and major issues facing the USA, and he doesn’t have anything more important to do with his time.
Nobody owes McCain an apology.
If he doesn’t want to be criticized while sick or on his ‘death bed’, he shouldn’t make political and/or public comments while sick or on his death bed.
If you want to go out gracefully, try working on the graceful part
This is not what they are elected to spend their time on.
Jones is a moron. I call on Wally to disclose and apologize for any tasteless comments he has ever made in private.
Walter Jones of “Freedom Fries” fame.
My brother died of cancer in 2003 at age 49 - once it got to his brain he was gone in a matter of weeks - near the end he thought I was our Dad and the nurse call button was an ashtray. I don’t know how McCain has lasted this long - when was the last time he appeared in public?
This must be fake news because no Republican congressman could be that stupid.
Everyone needs to give old Walt a buzz, on this. Ask him who he thinks he is, acting like a DEMONCRAT and who has McPain apologized to???
