An official with the Republican National Committee in Nevada has apologized for retweeting — and adding an "Amen" to — a story by another woman who wrote of her hope that Sen. John McCain would "please just f*****g die already."

RNC national committeewoman Diana Orrock deleted her retweet and posted an apology late Monday:

The war hero and Arizona Republican McCain is recuperating from major surgery to remove a blood clot above his left eye.

However, Caitlin Johnstone, calling herself a rogue journalist, wrote of her hope that McCain, a "murderous warmongering neocon," would hopefully suffer from a medical error that would end his life at 80.

"If you're waiting for the part where I say I'm just kidding and would never wish death on anybody, please allow me to make myself clear: I sincerely, genuinely hope that Arizona Senator John McCain's heart stops beating, and that he is subsequently declared dead by qualified medical professionals very soon," Johnson wrote on Medium.

"I don't wish him a painful death, I don't wish him a slow death, I don't wish him an unnatural or violent death; I only wish that he becomes incapable of facilitating the merciless slaughter of any more human beings."

Orrock thought that worthy of a retweet and an "Amen" since she's not a "big fan" of McCain's foreign policy, she told CNN.
