During the May 11 edition of "The View," Meghan McCain made sure to give her two cents. "Don't feel bad for me and my family, we are strong," McCain said.

"Kelly, here's a little news flash...we're dying, we're all dying," Meghan stated, before adding, "since my dad has been diagnosed...I really feel like I understand the meaning of life. It's not about how you die, it is how you live."

"It was a hard day yesterday," Meghan McCain went on to note, before crediting her co-hosts and co-workers for being supportive.

"I have so much love around my family," she said. "My father’s legacy is going to be talked about for hundreds and hundreds of years," McCain said about her dad, while adding, "These people? (Trump administration) Nothing burgers."
