Emotional moment on TV as Joe Biden comforts Meghan McCain, whose father, John McCain, was diagnosed with same cancer Biden’s late son Beau had
Joe Biden and Meghan McCain, the daughter of Senator John McCain, may come from different political parties, but on Wednesday their grief united them.
The former vice president appeared on The View on Wednesday to promote his book titled ‘Promise Me, Dad’ but he ended up serving as a comforter to co-host Meghan McCain, whose father John McCain was diagnosed with glioblastoma, the same cancer that took the life of Biden’s late son, Beau.
During the show, Meghan became emotional talking about her father’s diagnosis of stage 4 glioblastoma, a rare and highly aggressive form of brain cancer that has a median survival rate of 14 months. She broke down in tears as she spoke and Biden switched seats so he could hold her hand and comfort her.
