Pro-Trump super PAC hires White House aide fired for mocking John McCain
Written by OANN on April 12, 2019
Kelly Sadler, fired from the Trump White House last year for mocking John McCain, has been hired to work communications for the pro-Trump super PAC America First Action.
“I’m really excited to do everything in my power to help reelect the President of the United States, by joining the great team at America First,” Sadler said in a statement she gave to CNN. “The President is solving the problems the American people elected him to do, and I can’t wait to help him win another four years in office, so he can achieve even more.”
Sadler, then a White House aide, joked last May in a discussion about McCain’s opposition to Trump’s nomination of Gina Haspel for CIA director that the Arizona Republican was already “dying anyway.” McCain died of brain cancer in August.
The White House responded by firing Sadler nearly a month after she made the comment.
At the time, it was reported that the White House had been hoping to simply relocate her to another department or agency.
President of America First, Brian Walsh, praised Sadler’s addition to the PAC.
“We are very proud to have Kelly Sadler join our team as we build towards victory in 2020,” Walsh said. “Her commitment to President Trump is unwavering and we are lucky to have someone of her talent and experience at America First.”
