Sen. John McCain's daughter denounced two people Friday who made comments critical of her ailing father this week.
Analyst John Heilemann said he does not know the difference between Sanders and al-Sahhaf and commended White House reporters' valor in dealing with the "horror show" of White House briefings.
Sen. McCain's opposition to Haspel came following her Senate testimony Wednesday, saying in a statement Thursday that although she was a "patriot" and longtime public servant, "Her refusal to acknowledge torture's immorality is disqualifying".
Sanders confirmed Sadler still works at the White House.
Former President Bill Clinton embraced John McCain in a big way, clearly throwing shade on the White House staffer who dismissed the Arizona Senator as a guy whose opinion doesn't matter because "he's dying anyway".
Critics of Trump and his administration pointed out that the aide might have felt emboldened to make that statement - even as a joke - because Trump himself has said some very offensive things about McCain.

The move, which is expected to debut next year, comes as Apple seeks to capitalize on services in an era of stagnant iPhone sales. Netflix and YouTube (owned by rival Alphabet), operate the two largest online video services in the world outside of China.
Sadler's comments were reported the same day that a guest on Fox Business Network, retired Air Force Lieutenant General Thomas McInerney, suggested McCain divulged critical information to the North Vietnamese after being tortured. "I'm dying, you're dying, we're all dying", she added. "May I remind you my husband has a family, 7 children and 5 grandchildren", she said. She wouldn't want to go back to it, that torture doesn't work and she is going to adhere to the law that Senator McCain and I helped author. Hostin said the comment "infuriated" her, while Goldberg instructed the network to be more vigilant about screening its guests.
"I don't understand the kind of environment you're working in where that would be acceptable and you could come into work the next day and still have a job", she said.
Although they were once political rivals in the 2008 presidential campaign, Biden and McCain have formed a close relationship, with Biden calling McCain "one of my best friends". McInerney made the comments in a conversation about the enhanced interrogation practices that took place in the post-9/11 era, in light of Haspel's nomination.
