Meghan McCain may not be Trump's fan, but she is thankful he is the President!  It is no rumor that the author and Trump go head to head when it comes to public opinions but what is news is that McCain is grateful to have Donald as the current POTUS.


Meghan Marguerite McCain is an American columnist, author, and current co-host of "The View." McCain is the daughter of 2008 presidential candidate and U.S. Senator John McCain and Cindy McCain.


Meghan joined the talk show, "The View" in October 2017 and in no time became one of the panel's most outspoken conservative commentators and President Trump's critic.

In the new Ramin Setoodeh's tell-all book, "Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of The View," McCain had a lot to say concerning how she feels about Trump being the president and some of it was shocking. McCain said:

"If Trump wasn’t president, I don’t think I would be successful here. For that reason, I guess I’m grateful that Trump is president. It’s just made my job a little easier because I know why it happened."


Meghan, however, did not give all the kudos to Donald for the show's ratings as she further explained that, 

"Everyone is like, 'Oh, you’re popular because of Trump.' I think everyone is more interested in politics. Young women are different now than when I was younger. Everyone is involved, civically engaged and informed. I think that’s also why the show is doing."

The 34-year-old author also stated that she is the first real Republican the talk show has ever had and still votes Republican, but Trump gets nothing from her.


There is no love lost between the two since Donald is also not a fan of the McCains. Last month, Trump delivered an extended attack on Sen. McCain over longstanding disputes between the two men ranging from health care to foreign policy.

John McCain who died of brain cancer in August 2018 served in the Navy during the Vietnam War. In 1967, his jet was shot down, and he spent the next five and a half years in captivity as a prisoner of war and due to this many considered him a hero. But according to the President,

“He’s not a war hero. He was a war hero because he was captured?. I like people who weren’t captured."


Meghan has since called on Trump to apologize for the comments and also took a shot at him at her father's funeral service. She told the crowd which included the President's daughter that they were gathered to mourn the passing of "American greatness."

Trump hasn't stopped criticizing the late senator even after his death, during an official white house event last month, the president complained that he was not given a "thank you" for McCain's funeral.
