Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin commented Friday on her relationship with Arizona Sen. John McCain following a White House aide’s disparaging remarks about his health.

“I will never disparage someone who has served our country and made a lot of sacrifices as a vet now. And that’s how I look at him—as someone who served all those years,” Palin said.

Palin stated that she had known McCain for a while prior to joining him on the 2008 presidential campaign running for vice president and that she “has respect for his Maverick nature.”

“I certainly have respect for many of the things that he’s accomplished and so much respect for his family,” she continued.

Kelly Sadler, a White House special assistant, made an off-color remark earlier this week, saying McCain’s opposition to CIA director nominee Gina Haspel “doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway.” (RELATED: Biden: White House Aide’s McCain Comments ‘Not Exception To The Rule’ Of Trump Administration)
