In a Wednesday interview on CNN, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said that there are "other administration jobs open" to Kelly Sadler, the recently ousted White House staffer who mocked "dying" Sen.

US Senator John McCain, 81 and battling brain cancer, reportedly was the target of dismissive remarks by a communications official of the Trump administration.

Sadler remained employed in the White House for almost a month after making an insensitive comment about McCain in a closed meeting on May 10 because he opposed Trump's nomination of Gina Haspel for Central Intelligence Agency director.

The White House has not confirmed or denied whether Ms Sadler made the remark. She met press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders last week to discuss staff downsizing in the Communication Department to check flow of leaks from the White House, and suggested Sadler's name, the Daily Beast reported.

"Kelly Sadler is no longer employed within the Executive Office of the President", read a brief statement by deputy White House spokesman Raj Shah.

Sadler apologised to the McCain family privately, but McCain's daughter asked for a public apology. McCain suffers from a rare form of brain cancer called glioblastoma. It was unclear whether her departure was specifically tied to her comment about Arizona Sen.

Updated 7:25pm: Post was updated to include a statement from the White House.

A senior White House official told the New York Times more exits were expected in the coming weeks.

Sadler was a special assistant to President Trump, responsible for compiling and distributing talking points to administration allies.

But people who don't trust their coworkers and think they're about to be fired rarely leak, so the White House should be good.
