Lt. Gen. Thomas McInernyA Fox Business Network host is apologizing for a remark a retired three-star general and Fox News guest made on his program Thursday – saying Sen. John McCain’s opposition to Gina Haspel becoming CIA director was because torture “worked” on McCain.

“The fact is John McCain – it worked on John,” retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney told host Charles Payne. “That’s why they call him ‘Songbird John.'”

McCain has always denied giving up harmful information when he was a prisoner of war and when critics distributed a flyer during the 2008 South Carolina presidential primary claiming he did, it was debunked by the fact-finding website PolitiFact.
