The family of Senator John McCain, in particular, his wife and daughter, was outraged after one of the White House officials joked about McCain’s health.


John McCain’s health issues

In summer 2017, Senator John McCain was diagnosed with brain cancer just three weeks after he underwent a surgery for an intestinal infection.

It’s not the first time the politician was diagnosed with cancer, but fortunately, all the previous times he managed to recover from this horrible disease.

In April 2018, McCain’s daughter Meghan revealed her father had an "emergency surgery for complications" arising from his brain tumor. Family and close friends keep praying for senator’s recovery. In her Twitter update on April 17, Megan wrote that her father is in stable condition and doing well.

“He’s dying anyway”

The last year was pretty hard for the McCain family. Maybe, for this reason, a remark made by the White House special assistant, Kelly Sadler, during a closed-door meeting generated a wave of offense from the family. According to the Hill and several other proved sources, Sadler told about Senator McCain:

It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway.

Being outraged by the sharp comment, McCain’s wife Cindy tweeted after Sadler ‘s words:

Meghan McCain joined her mother’s feedback and retweeted her message by sharing a throwback photo of herself as a kid together with her dad. She wrote:

I’ve always wanted in on the action. Love you so much, Dad!

The White House still didn’t comment on the controversial situation.


In our turn, we wish Senator McCain to recover soon. He’s lucky to have such a great family capable to stay by his side in any dramatic situation.
