The media and well-I-nevering hens on both sides of the aisle are demanding that a White House staffer be dismissed over a comment made in a closed-door meeting.
See, during said closed-door meeting at the White House, staffer Kelly Sadler allegedly said of McCain’s opposition to Gina Haspel, “It doesn’t matter; he’s dying anyway.”
It wasn’t much of a closed-door meeting if we all know what was said, was it?
Frankly, I don’t care what was said.
The White House has a right to meet and discuss the upcoming confirmation of Gina Haspel. And they have the right to hammer out what Senators are on the fence and what Senators need to be swayed.
And the truth is, Kelly Sadler is right.
John McCain’s opposition to Gina Haspel doesn’t matter. And there’s no point in expending any energy trying to get him to change his mind.
Because despite the fact that he is still a Senator from Arizona, John McCain is not in Washington and will not vote on Haspel’s confirmation.
So why should the White House waste time trying to campaign for McCain’s support of Haspel when he won’t be voting?
His opposition doesn’t matter.
The so-called “sitting Senator from Arizona” isn’t doing his job.
Because he’s dying of cancer.
In other words, there isn’t a single thing that Kelly Sadler said that is incorrect.
Yet the media is demanding Sadler’s head on plate.
Personally, I think the people who gossiped like little girls and leaked this comment made in a closed door meeting are the ones who should be fired.
But that’s me.
NBC News went so far as to claim Sadler was mocking McCain’s cancer.
She wasn’t mocking his cancer.
She wasn’t mocking at all.
Instead, she simply pointed out the obvious.
Why waste time trying to convince McCain to support Haspel when he isn’t even going to vote on her confirmation?
McCain’s opposition doesn’t matter.
And if John McCain was really as honorable as the media claims, he’d resign.
After all, he’s dying and is unable to carry out the duties of his office.
He owes it to the State of Arizona to step down so that the governor could appoint someone who would actually show up for work.
But McCain is too much of a megalomaniac to do that.
So as a result, Arizona only has one sitting Senator in Congress.
Well, half of one anyway. We are talking about Jeff Flake here.
Is McCain’s ego so outsized that he can’t do what is in the best interests of the state that elected him?
Short answer: Yes.
And apparently pointing out that this guy is putting his own interests ahead of the state he is supposed to represent is forbidden.
Then again, when McCain actually was showing up to the Senate, he put his own interests ahead of Arizona.
Why should he be any different now that he’s dying?
Kelly Sadler didn’t make these comments in front of microphones or on Twitter.
She made them in a closed door meeting at the White House.
We don’t know what was said before, during or after she made this alleged comment.
In other words, the leak is selective — and deliberately so.
Like they always are.
But the truth is, you get what you give.
And it shouldn’t come as a surprise that John McCain’s own callous indifference spawns callous indifference.
He can’t say any unkind thing he wants then play the Cancer Card when unkind things are said about him.
Of course what Sadler did isn’t the same as what McCain has been doing.
Kelly Sadler made her comment in private.
But McCain expresses his nasty, callous statements directly to the media.
How about this?
I’ll join the bandwagon demanding Sadler dismissed only after McCain puts Arizona ahead of his own interests and resigns.
