While much of the country is engaged in a bitter bipartisan fight after an unexpected Doug Jones victory in Alabama, a rare duo came together on daytime television Wednesday to discuss something that supersedes politics.
Joe Biden was a guest on “The View” and he talked about a variety of things, including his recent book “Promise Me Dad.” So when Meghan McCain likened his book to her father’s battle with cancer, politics seemed to escape the room for a moment.
“This is the hard part. Bear with me, ok?” she began. “I couldn’t get through your book, I tried. Your son Beau had the same cancer that my father was diagnosed with six months ago. I think about Beau almost every day, and I was told – I’m sorry – that this doesn’t get easier. But that you cultivate the tools to work with this and live with this.”
As McCain broke down further, Biden got up from his seat to hold her hand and comfort her, telling her that “if anybody can make it, your dad can.”
