White House response to “dying” McCain wisecrack is to look for the person who leaked the story

Image result for "Dying" McCain jokeThe Trump administration leaks more than a colander, and Sarah Huckabee Sanders decided to put a stop to it once and for all after a staffer leaked a nasty “joke”  communications staffer Kelly Sadler told a nasty joke about “dying” John McCain’s brain tumor.

Axios reports that Sanders rounded up her team of imbeciles, racists, idiots, stupid people, bigots, Nazis, and other assorted deplorables to scream about the “selfish” leak of Sadler’s remarks.

Sanders said Sadler’s “joke” was inappropriate, but that there was no justification for leaking it to the press, whining that it ruined what she delusionally called a great day for the White House after Trump’s photo-op with the returned North Korean hostages.

“It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway,” Sadler had said of McCain’s decision to oppose Trump’s nomination of notorious torture advocate Gina Haspel to head the CIA.

to torture: "It doesn't matter. He's dying anyway."
“No one is condoning the remark,” a source told Axios. “The message to the staff is that leaking it to the press is not how you handle it.”

“Sarah cares so much about the team, the cause, this country and this President. Sarah did absolutely the right thing in condemning the remark but also condemning the selfish action,” another source said.

But someone did condone the remark

“You can put this on the record… I stand with Kelly Sadler,”  strategic communications director Mercedes Schlapp reportedly said during the meeting.

“I am sure this conversation is going to leak, too. And that’s just disgusting,” Sanders told her team of morons on Friday.

And she was right.

This account was confirmed by no fewer than five people in the room. 

It’s gotten to the point that Sanders’ crew don’t feel they can trust each other and are forced to clam up for fear of their horrific remarks being made public.
