The Trump administration recently confirmed communication aide Kelly Sadler is out at the White House.
Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah confirmed the news on Tuesday.
Sadler has been under fire since her remark about Senator John McCain’s terminal illness during a closed-door meeting last month.
Sadler apologized to the lawmaker’s daughter Meghan McCain, but did not apologize publicly.
McCain is currently undergoing treatment for brain cancer, and has not returned to Capitol Hill this year.
It is not known if Sadler’s comments were the cause of her departure at the White House.
