Like thousands of daughters around the United States, Meghan McCain celebrated her father, Sen. John McCain, on Sunday with a Father's Day message on social media.
As McCain, a six-term Arizona Republican, battles brain cancer, his daughter, a television commentator, has emerged as one of her ailing father's vociferous defenders against political critics.
Meghan McCain also has given the public an up-close view of the bond she has with her father through social media posts and photos, on her talk show, and in media interviews.
Their everyday moments together — sitting on a cabin deck, or side by side on an outdoor bench — often are the most poignant.
Happy Fathers Day @SenJohnMcCain - you’re the greatest father in the world. I love you more than I can ever say. Thank you for always giving me something to believe in. 🇺🇸♥️ pic.twitter.com/ZszMMT6ggr— Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) June 17, 2018
