Joe Biden consoles Meghan McCain on father's cancer diagnosis

During an emotional moment on The View, former Vice President Joe Biden consoled Meghan McCain about her father's cancer diagnosis. The conservative View host noted that she was unable to finish Biden's book on his son, as she "tried" but "couldn't finish the book" due to the content presumably hitting too close to home. "I think about Beau nearly every day, and I was told that this doesn't get easier". Biden, who was seated in the middle of the table, got up from his seat to walk over to McCain and take her hand. McCain's absence would make it more hard, but not impossible, for Republicans to pass the bill. I know you and your family have been through tragedy I couldn't conceive of.

McCain has been receiving treatment since being diagnosed with a glioblastoma - a cancerous brain tumor - last July.

Ever the motivational speaker, Biden urged, "We gotta keep moving like this is gonna happen".

Biden, 74, considered a run for the Oval Office in 2016, but decided against it, later citing the trauma of his son's death keeping him from the race.

Mr. Biden's 46-year-old son, former Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, died in 2015 of the same aggressive form of brain cancer that Republican Sen.

Meghan McCain thanked Biden later, tweeting she had no words to convey her "immense gratitude". He told her there's hope, and a medical breakthrough is possible.
