White House aide Kelly Sadler is out of a job nearly a month after she reportedly mocked a "dying" Sen.

Last year, McCain was diagnosed with a type of brain cancer known as glioblastoma.

A Trump communications aide who joked about U.S. Senator John McCain's battle with brain cancer has left her White House job, a White House spokesman said on Tuesday.

White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah confirmed in a statement on Tuesday that Sadler had quit, but Conway would not say whether her departure was related to her comments about McCain, claiming she could not comment on personnel issues.

"Kelly Sadler is a world-class person who made a flippant off-hand remark in private", Scaramucci tweeted.

"There were lawyers in her office this afternoon", CNN senior White House correspondent Jeff Zeleny told Wolf Blitzer.

This immediately set off a firestorm as the White House focused on the outrage of the leaks more than the outrage of the comment itself.

Sadler was a special assistant to the president, responsible for putting together talking points for administration allies, the network reported.

Conway said it is up to Sadler if she wants to remain in the administration, possibly in a Cabinet agency role.

Speaking about the efforts to seek out leakers, Sanders said, "I think it is disgusting and some of the most shameful behavior that you can ever engage in".
