The 33-year-old View co-host, Meghan McCain, admits in a recent documentary how worried she was about her father's health. She even yelled at him.


The HBO documentary titled John McCain: For Whom The Bell Tolls premiered on May 28th and was directed by Peter Kunhardt, a six-time Emmy winner.

The documentary includes interviews and newsreels from McCain's 31-year-career as Senator, as well as interviews with McCain and those close to him.

Meghan revealed that she clashed with her strong-willed father when he wanted to return to work after his brain surgery. She felt that he needed the rest to recover.

But McCain was adamant 'to get back to the healthcare bill' and Meghan screamed at father and his staff that she does not want him to get on the plane.

McCain's doctor had advised Meghan that a plane trip could cause bleeding, so his daughter had reason to be concerned.


“So I freaked out, and I screamed at everyone that he couldn’t get on the plane and that I didn’t agree with it. And my dad snapped at me and said, ‘It’s my life, and it’s my choice.”

Senator McCain was diagnosed with a glioblastoma, a brain tumor, in July 2017. He has since undergone chemotherapy and radiation.

McCain had a 3 to 14 percent chance of survival, and brain cancer patients, on average, typically survive less than a year and a half after diagnosis.

He has been Senator of Arizona and Chair of the Senate Armed Services Committee since 2015, and was Chair of Senate Commerce Committee from 1997 until 2001, and again from 2003 until 2005.

During the mid-eighties, he was also a Member of the U.S House of Representatives from Arizona's 1st district. John Jacob Rhodes III succeeded him in 1987.
