- Joe Biden and Meghan McCain shared an emotion moment over her father and Biden’s son Beau.
- Both Beau Biden, who died in 2015, and John McCain were diagnosed with the same type of brain cancer.
Former Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday shared an emotional moment with Meghan McCain over her father Sen. John McCain’s cancer diagnosis.
In an interview on ABC’s “The View,” McCain teared up discussing Biden’s late son Beau, who was diagnosed with the same type of brain cancer as the Arizona senator.
“I think about Beau almost every day,” McCain said. “And I was told, sorry, that this doesn’t get any easier, but you cultivate the tools to deal with this.”
The former vice president said the senator befriended Beau when Biden was in the Senate. And he said that Beau, a veteran, was inspired by McCain’s service.
“If anybody can make it, your dad can,” Biden said. “Your dad is one of my best friends.”
