A White House official Kelly Sadler mocked Sen. John McCain‘s brain cancer diagnosis just three weeks after the politician underwent surgery for an intestinal infection.

“It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway,” Special assistant Kelly Sadler said during a closed-door meeting at the White House, according to The Hill.

The White House has responded to this  issue saying, “We respect Senator McCain’s Service to our nation and he and his family are in our prayers during this difficult time.”

The daughter of McCain, Meghan McCain shared a black and white photo of herself with her father in which she sat on his lap as a little girl.

McCain underwent surgery in April after contracting an intestinal infection, “My father @SenJohnMcCain is in stable condition – he continues to inspire me everyday with his intense grit and determination. Thank you to the doctors at Mayo Clinic in Phoenix and to everyone who is praying for him.”

Later on Thursday, Fox News host Charles Payne interviewed Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney on McCain’s opposition to Haspel, which was based in part due to her belief that torture works as a questioning method.

McInerney responded on the show saying that despite Haspel being unable to use torture since “it’s not legal” the method worked on McCain himself.

“That’s why they call him ‘Songbird John.’ The fact is those methods can work, and they are effective, as former Vice President Cheney said,” he continued. “And if we have to use them to save a million American lives, we will do whatever we have to.”

Payne issued an apology on Twitter after the segment aired, writing, “This morning on a show I was hosting, a guest made a very false and derogatory remark about Senator John McCain.”

“At the time, I had the control room in my ear telling me to wrap the segment, and did not hear the comment,” he continued. “I regret I did not catch this remark, as it should have been challenged.”

I regret I did not catch this remark, as it should have been challenged. As a proud military veteran and son of a Vietnam Vet these words neither reflect my or the network’s feelings about Senator McCain, or his remarkable service and sacrifice to this country.”

“As a proud military veteran and a son of a Vietnam Vet these words neither reflect my or the network’s feeling about Senator McCain, or his remarkable service and sacrifice to this country.”

“It’s just insensitive and it’s not appreciated at the moment,” she said on The View, resuming her co-hosting role on the talk show after a long weekend at home in Arizona with her father.

“How’s Pop?” co-host Whoopi Goldberg asked.

“He’s doing really good. Just making jokes, talking, standing, doing, you know, doing a great recovery. He has a great team around him,” Meghan replied.

After being diagnosed in July, McCain told PEOPLE that his daughter marrying Ben Domenech on Nov. 21 at the family’s ranch in Cornville, Arizona, was a dream come true.

“The thing in life you want more than anything else is for your kids to be happy,” the senator told PEOPLE exclusively. “And I’m confident that she will be. It was really a wonderful day.”
