Meghan McCain’s full eulogy of her father, Senator John S. McCain
Meghan McCain announced Monday that she will return to “The View” on October 8.
McCain, 33, has been absent from the talk show since its season premiere on September 4. Her father, Sen. John McCain, died August 25.
“Thank you all for your patience & understanding,” she tweeted, accompanied by a political cartoon of herself in a boxing ring with “DAD” written on her boxing glove.
She continued, loosely quoting a line from “Rocky Balboa”: “It’s not about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard can you get hit and keep moving forward.”
“The View” also tweeted in support of McCain along with a promotional video of the cast.
“I’m speaking for the middle of the country. I’m not intimidated by anyone,” McCain says in the video. “I really like working with people who believe what they’re saying.”
Meanwhile, her co-hosts had plenty of hot topics to discuss Monday. In clips posted to the show’s Twitter account, Sunny Hostin, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar and Abby Huntsman talked about Sen. Jeff Flake’s “elevator moment,” Matt Damon’s portrayal of Brett Kavanaugh on “Saturday Night Live” and Kanye West’s controversial post-SNL rant about abolishing the 13th Amendment (which outlawed slavery).
“The 13th Amendment abolished slavery, Kanye,” Goldberg said while ripping up her cue card. “So maybe, maybe, you want to think and write it down before you say it so that you know what you’re saying.
