The White House communications aide who angered Sen. John McCain's family by mocking his brain cancer is no longer employed by the government

Kelly Sadler, the White House communications aide who made an imprudent comment about Republican Sen.

Conway declined to say why Sadler left her job in the White House, which was first reported on Tuesday.

Sadler faced backlash from the media and lawmakers from both sides of the aisle after she told her colleagues during a meeting that McCain's opposition to then-CIA director nominee Gina Haspel didn't matter because he was "dying" of terminal brain cancer.

Sadler reportedly called Meghan McCain after the insensitive remark, but it did not go over well with Senator's daughter.

And, though she apologized, she remained on the staff for almost a month before departing.

As RadarOnline.com readers know, Jackson, 52, filed for divorce from Al Mana, 43, just months after giving birth to their only son.

She's the aide who mocked Sen. The 81-year-old McCain is fighting brain cancer. There had been a discussion about relocating her to another agency or department outside of the White House, and it remains unclear if she is going somewhere else or leaving the administration entirely.

"We respect Senator McCain's service to our nation and he and his family are in our prayers during this hard time", a statement at the time said. "It's being addressed internally and I don't have anything further to add".

Conway would not comment on why Sadler was ousted from her role as a special assistant to Trump, which involved compiling and disseminating talking points to the administration's allies.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders mid-last month would not publicly apologize either, and instead attacked the leakers.

But people who don't trust their coworkers and think they're about to be fired rarely leak, so the White House should be good.
