After McCain's recent hospitalization for an intestinal infection, Graham said he was anxious about his old friend's health.

"And whatever you want to say in this kind of environment, the thing that surprises me most is", she added, "I don't understand what kind of environment you're working in where that would be acceptable and then you can come to work the next day and still have a job".

Meanwhile, McCain continues to receive a steady stream of visitors at his family's ranch in Arizona.

The White House is saying "no comment" on the news that a White House staffer mocked Senator John McCain for dying of brain cancer. "And that's just disgusting", she said, according to one of five sources at the meeting who promptly spoke to Jonathan Swan of Axios. "I can't imagine anybody who has more authority on this subject than John McCain - in the whole country".

Sadler was discussing McCain's opposition to Trump's pick for Central Intelligence Agency director, Gina Haspel, at a communications staff meeting on Thursday when she said that, "it doesn't matter" because "he's dying anyway", two people in the room confirmed to The Associated Press.

The movie, said Graham, "tells you all you need to know about me and him". It is how you live. She thanked viewers for their positive thoughts regarding her father. "We're really strong, there's so much more love and prayer and awesome energy being generated towards us than anything negative at all".

Senator McCain's daughter, Megan McCain, became emotional when asked about the comment during Friday morning's airing of The View.

Biden is not the only prominent figure to defend McCain following Sadler's comments. Graham said he spent Monday and Tuesday with McCain, and pronounced himself "pleasantly surprised" at the Arizona senator's condition.

"The fact is John McCain - [torture] worked on John".

After McCain's recent hospitalization for an intestinal infection, Graham said he was anxious about his friend's health. Flake is undecided on Haspel and said McCain's position is weighing on his own decision-making.

The two weren't quite yet saying their goodbyes. "No talking about funerals", Graham told reporters. Thursday's comment was made by Kelly Sadler, an assistant in the White House communications department.
