She was reacting to the comment made by White House communications aide Kelly Sadler.
McInerney's remark came after McCain encouraged fellow senators to reject Haspel, who was allegedly the person in charge of a Central Intelligence Agency "black site" during the waterboarding of a prisoner, Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri.
On Friday, friends rallied to defend McCain against a White House official's cruel joke that his positions don't matter because 'he's dying anyway'.
"He's the only one who's been through this", said Sen.
