Special Assistant Kelly Sadler had made light of the Arizona senator’s terminal diagnosis saying McCain’s opposition to President Donald Trump’s nominee for CIA director ‘doesn’t matter’ because ‘he’s dying anyway’.
Cindy hit out with a stern tweet: ‘May I remind you my husband has a family, 7 children and 5 grandchildren.’
The senator has begun to talk publicly about planning his funeral and has pointedly said he doesn’t want President Trump to attend.
Those close to the Republican have told the White House that their current plan is for Vice President Mike Pence to attend the funeral.
