"It doesn't matter, he's dying anyway", The Hill quoted Sadler as saying in a meeting with about two dozen communications aides.

Conway did not give a direct answer when pressed by Berman on whether Sadler's comments would disqualify her from working in the administration.

A White House aide who made a widely-condemned comment about the failing health of Arizona Senator John McCain has left her job in the Trump administration.

Sadler apologised to the McCain family privately, but McCain's daughter asked for a public apology. The White House would not condemn her remark and was said to have assured her that she would not lose her job over the remark. She remained on the staff for almost a month before departing. White House officials bemoaned an environment where presidential aides could not speak their minds in meetings without fearing their remarks could appear later in the press.

A senior White House official told the New York Times more exits were expected in the coming weeks.

The Trump administration declined to publicly apologize and Trump demanded a crackdown on whoever leaked the story to the media.

But instead of a mass exodus, people are expected to leave one by one or in small groups as the White House tries to avoid a spate of negative headlines, or the impression that it's firing people for allegedly leaking information without any tangible evidence.
