Meghan McCain sadly scolds White House staffer who 'joked' about her father's death

Meghan McCain marveled Friday at the fact that the White House staffer who made a "joke" about her ailing dad, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), hasn't faced tougher consequences for her comments.

Kelly Sadler, a communications aide for the Trump administration, ruffled some feathers when she said Wednesday that the senator's opposition to CIA director nominee Gina Haspel "doesn't matter," because "he's dying anyway." John McCain has suffered health complications related to his brain cancer diagnosis.

Even though Sadler reportedly called Meghan McCain to apologize for her comment, McCain wasn't ready to forgive and forget during Friday's episode of The View. "The thing that surprises me most is: I don't understand what kind of environment you're working in when that would be acceptable and then you can come to work the next day and still have a job," said McCain, who is one of the hosts of the show.

She added of her father: "It's not how you die, it's how you live." Watch the full segment below, via ABC. Summer Meza
