Despite interrogation by the press corps, Sanders held her ground and refused to make comments about an internal staff meeting.

"I am sure this conversation is going to leak, too", a visibly upset and furious Sanders told attendees during Friday's meeting, Axios reported, citing five staffers who were in the room.

Meghan McCain, the senator's daughter, responded on "The View", the ABC television show where she is a host.

"We respect Sen. McCain's service to our nation, and he and his family are in our prayers during this hard time", the White House said in a statement.

White House strategic communications director Mercedes Schlapp spoke up during the session to defend Sadler, one of the sources said.

Sadler's comment comes amid tension between the White House and McCain, 81, who has been at home in Arizona fighting brain cancer. John McCain's health by a communications staffer.

Spokeswoman Sanders, however, disputed the idea that the president had set a tone at the top that encouraged derogatory comments like Sadler's. "That's why they call him 'Songbird John.' Those methods can work and they are effective, as former Vice President Cheney said".

"I think most Americans would like to see the Trump administration do better in situations like this". "We have a respect for all Americans and that is what we try to put forward in everything we do, both in word and in action, focusing on doing things that help every American in this country, every single day", Ms. Sanders said.

As for the president, he and McCain have had a troubled relationship.

McCain is now battling an aggressive form of brain cancer.

McCain has recounted stories of lying to his interrogators under torture, including giving them the names of the Green Bay Packers' offensive line instead of the names of his own squadron.

She added, "Don't feel bad for me or my family".

"I certainly have respect for numerous things that he's accomplished, and so much respect for his family", said Sarah Palin, McCain's former running mate. The senator issued a statement Wednesday calling Haspel a "patriot", but saying "her refusal to acknowledge torture's immorality is disqualifying".

A report by CNN showed Haspel, an agent with the Central Intelligence Agency and a nominee for the Trump Administration, has a history of waterboarding and torture during her tenure in the Bush Administration.
