Here is the one hundred fifteenth article in our Republicans on Parade series, featuring individuals who personify what the Republican Party has become. Today’s honoree is Republican White House Special Assistant to the Fuhrer, Kelly Sadler. She is so honored for the way she showed typical Republican love of and respect for John McCain.

I don't have a lot of use for McCain either, and even less for wife Cindy or daughter Meghan. But it's just not acceptable on any level in any context to joke about someone dying. There's an old proverb, "Do not speak of rope in the house of the hanged." Decent people, as you say, know this.

But I've been saddened by the number of comments on this that offer a defense of Sadler in the name of truth. (Well, he is dying, isn't he?) Either that represents a record number of trolls, or else it isn't just Trumpians who have lost all restraint.

Both Cindy and Meghan responded to the obscene "joke" with grace and dignity. Peace be unto them.

Gawd, how low can she (and the others who heard this), go??? Pretty Low, imho.

Rude and demeaning comments about the toxic can one be? My thoughts are of Comfort & Peace to the McCain family.

Perhaps in response to the idiocy mouthed by Sadler, (I don’t really know what sparked it, as I was listening with one ear, from an adjoining room, as my wife watched the news)NBC News, just a little while ago, said it was going to do a piece on “What is wrong with this white House?” Well, the answer is simple: the W.H., and it’s Cabinet, are filled with liars,crooks, grifters, and whatever undefined sort of scum that tDumpy can attract!

Disgusting! Another example of the White house cesspool.
I agree Pat. My thoughts also are for comfort and peace to the McCain family.

At least under-Bush it was "you're with us or against us" (with "us" being the country) its "if you're not with our dear leader then you're against us" more example of the inhumane behavior of trump and his loonies

I have signed several petitions urging my Congress critters to resist that She-Wolf of the SS Gina Haspel. That WH sleaze bag had no business being so unkind to McCain! I'm no fan of his, but just because he has one foot in the grave does not make his opinions any less worthy. Think of an opinion that someone you admire expressed. What if he or she had said or written that while on the deathbed? Would it have any less worth?

The Rethuglicanazi party is coming apart at the seams. Sadly, though, the Democrats are no prize.

I too heard about this first this morning on The View. His daughter was really letting it out about this bi*ch. I certainly don't blame her.I too agree that tat was a nasty comment and that this person should be punished for it. I agree with Pat and Nita too. I have been saying prayers for John McCain ever since I heard of his brain cancer. Thanks TomCat

As a foreigner I have no special feelings toward John McCain other than for the policies he stood and stands for, but it’s shocking to see how the GOP/administration eat one of their own when he’s dissenting, especially when the man is down and out on his dying bed. The cowardice and inhumanity of publicly kicking a man who is down because he’s disagreed on standard GOP issues once or twice, is horrifying but at the same time something we’ve come to expect in the Drumpf era. Vote Republicans out of every office – not just the House – or et used to it.

I hope this isn’t literally the last nail in McCain’s coffin when he feels obliged to drag himself to DC to vote against Haspel.

I saw this on The View. Disgusting and Despicable people to be sure. Megyn McCain took the high road.

Jackie (panelist): “Yeah, the end of class and civility!” — AMEN!!!

As Peter Baker (NY Times reporter) commented

“Well let’s remember of course that it didn’t start just today. It was Donald Trump himself who said during the 2016 election campaign that he didn’t particularly think much of John McCain and didn’t think he was a war hero. He was a war hero because he got captured. He liked the ones that didn’t get captured.”

So, when was it that Drumpf served his country in the armed forces? Oh right, NEVER (you have to like those imaginary bone spurs!) As far as I am concern, as POTUS he does a great disservice to the US.

I, like Lona, have no special feelings towards McCain, but he should be respected for his service to the country in war and in Congress. I do not agree with most of his stances (he is a Republican after all) but he had the courage to go against the party line on a couple of occasions. That I can respect.

And who better than a war hero who was tortured for 5 years to talk about torture and the negative effect on the US image that having a torture queen as head of the CIA would bring.

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Silence is Consent!!!

@ Dave C --- " inhumane behavior of trump and his loonies "

You do realise Dave that you are libelling Canada's $1 coin, the Loonie, by referring to Drumpf's sycophants and followers as "loonie".

No more electoral college - too many cultist out there saying much worse things. My heart goes out to John McCain and his family. Torture is immoral like the people in the WH and Congress still torturing him.
Blast them all.

I remember when the Republicans were just people with different political views. Now the leader of that 'Grand old Party', and his minion have become an amoral, dishonest, racist, and unrepentant group of bigoted thugs.

"Both sources said they believed the comment was intended as a joke." Doesn't sound like anyone laughed! What an insensitive, horrible person!
