Meghan McCain says she's still waiting for the public apology from the White House aide who joked about her father's brain cancer diagnosis.

Sen. John McCain's (R-Ariz.) daughter told ABC News on Sunday that White House staffer Kelly Sadler has not yet followed through on her reported promise to publicly apologize.

The Hill reported Thursday that Sadler had brushed off the senator's opposition to President Trump's nominee for CIA director, Gina Haspel, by saying "It doesn't matter, he's dying anyway."

John McCain, 81, is currently in Arizona battling an aggressive form of brain cancer.

Meghan McCain, who is a co-host on "The View," said that Sadler called her and her family on Thursday to apologize.

"When I had a conversation with Kelly, I asked her to publicly apologize and she said she would," Meghan McCain said. "I have not spoken to her since and I assume that it will never come."

Meghan McCain suggested on Friday that Sadler should be fired.

"I don't understand what kind of environment you're working in when that would be acceptable and then you could come to work the next day and still have a job," Meghan McCain said. "And that's all I have to say about it."

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders refused to address the issue during a press briefing on Friday, saying it was a staff matter.

"I'm not going to validate a leak, one way or another, out of an internal staff meeting," Sanders said during her Friday press briefing as reporters peppered her with questions.

Sanders declined to confirm or deny reports about a public apology from the White House during the briefing.

The Hill has reached out to the White House on Sunday for a response to Meghan McCain's request.

Sanders reportedly scolded her staff on Friday after Sadler's remark was leaked to the media.

"I am sure this conversation is going to leak, too. And that's just disgusting," she said according to a report by Axios on Saturday.
