Here is another of the “best people” Donald J. Trump said he would hire to work with him in the White House.
Her name is Kelly Sadler, a special assistant in the White House communications office. Sadler reportedly said the following in a closed-door meeting about criticism leveled against CIA director nominee Gina Haspel by U.S. Sen. John McCain:
“It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway.”
Words escape me. I’ll try: disgraceful, detestable, reprehensible.
I cannot even begin to fathom how someone at any level could think — let alone say … allegedly — something so crass.
McCain criticized Haspel because she wouldn’t during her Senate confirmation hearing condemn torture as an “immoral” act. McCain, you see, knows torture when he sees it. He experienced it as a prisoner of war during the Vietnam War.
Sen. McCain also is fighting a dangerous, life-threatening disease. The nation is hoping for his recovery.
Kelly Sadler’s comments — allegedly — are disgraceful in the extreme. Ah, but she’s one of the “best people.”
