A White House communications aide who drew criticism for reportedly joking about Senator John McCain's cancer has left her role, an official says.
CNN first reported Sadler's exit, noting that "the White House had been strategizing an exit for Sadler for the last two weeks", including possibly "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". John McCain (R-AZ) being irrelevant because she predicted he would soon succumb to brain cancer.
This is a developing story.
"Kelly Sadler is no longer employed within the Executive Office of the President", White House spokesman Raj Shah told the BBC in a statement on Tuesday. Lindsey Graham, said the White House should have done more to address the inappropriate comment. The sources did not say whether Sadler was sacked or if she left on her own accord.

Sadler, who led surrogate affairs for the White House, often sent comments on illegal immigration to reporters and tried to arrange for television personalities, outside groups and others to support the administration's policies. McCain has frequently been a target of Trump, who still occasionally derides him privately, according to aides.
Amid the ensuing fallout, Trump convened a meeting with officials and reportedly asked Sadler who leaked the comment to the media. Meghan McCain, the senator's daughter, said that Sadler called her to say she was sorry and promised to apologize publicly as well, but never did.
Sanders later chastised White House communications staffers for releasing the information to reporters.
