Episode Summary

Meghan McCain is not her father.

For one, she’s a daytime talk show host on ABC's "The View." And her father is Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona, a one-time presidential candidate and perennial thorn in Donald Trump’s side. But Meghan and her father are really close, and in this interview with Women Rule, the younger McCain opens up about some intensely personal topics, including her relationship with him. She also discusses his fight with brain cancer, how she feels (as a conservative) about the Trumps, and why she doesn't consider herself a feminist.
