Kelly Sadler, White House aide that reportedly mocked John McCain, is out

Kelly Sadler out at WH

Kelly Sadler, the White House communications aide who was accused of mocking Sen. John McCain and his battle against brain cancer, no longer works at the White House.

"It doesn't matter, he's dying anyway," Sadler reportedly said last month about McCain's opposition to CIA nominee Gina Haspel at a meeting of White House communications staffers.

The comments, which were made in a closed-door meeting and leaked to The Hill, ignited a firestorm of criticism and calls for Sadler's firing. But she remained on staff for about a month. CNN first reported Sadler's departure, followed by Fox. Both cited anonymous sources. It's unclear if Sadler resigned or was terminated.


Pruitt Used Position And Staff To Pursue a Chick-Fil-A Franchise For His Wife

Chick-fil-AEPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is becoming a cartoon character. In his brief tenure in office, he seems to have devoted a remarkable amount of energy and public resources to self-aggrandizement and lavish perks.

Apparently Pruitt fell off the turnip truck somewhere between Oklahoma City and Washington and discovered that maintaining homes in both places was going to be expensive. So he became very concerned about his wife pulling her weight by bringing in a good income.

It’s unclear whether he considered letting her make her own career plans, but in any event, both he and his staff got very involved, according to a Washington Post report:

Trump disinvites Eagles to the WH

President Trump on Monday abruptly announced the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles would not visit the White House on Tuesday, citing the team's participation in national anthem protests.

"The Philadelphia Eagles are unable to come to the White House with their full team to be celebrated tomorrow.

Candidate Donald Trump bragged that he could shoot someone on New York’s Fifth Avenue and not lose any support, and now President Donald Trump’s lawyer says Trump could shoot the FBI director in the Oval Office and still not be prosecuted for it.

“In no case can he be subpoenaed or indicted,” Rudy Giuliani told HuffPost Sunday, claiming a president’s constitutional powers are that broad. “I don’t know how you can indict while he’s in office. No matter what it is.”
