Meghan McCain: ‘Cancer is omnipresent in my life’

Cancer is one of the great equalizers of our time, touching virtually every family. The McCains are no different.

“It’s the first thing I think about every morning. I think about it all day long. I think about it at night,” Meghan McCain told Julie Mason during a wide-reaching interview on The Press Pool this week (P.O.T.U.S. Ch. 124).

“The View” co-host’s father, Arizona Senator John McCain, was diagnosed with glioblastoma last July.

Meghan says she’s found comfort in prayer, meditation and friend-across-the-aisle Joe Biden, whose son Beau died in 2015 after battling the same form of brain cancer.

“He’s doing really good,” she told Julie Mason about her father’s recovery after chemotherapy. “As you know, everything with cancer— some days it’s great, some days it’s not great.”

And Meghan admits that her “very tough” father has “turned into a bit of a stage dad” after convincing her to join The View and now watches the show every day.

“He says ‘don’t let the bastards get you down,’ but he says it in Latin!”
