Meghan McCain Admits Politicization Of Her Dad’s Illness Makes Her ‘Paranoid About Going Out To Dinner’

Meghan McCain admitted on ABC’s “The View” Wednesday that the divisive nature of politics had drastically changed her social habits, especially in recent months. “I don’t know where you stand politically on my father’s cancer, so I’m paranoid about going out to dinner.”

After apologizing for giving off “negative energy,” McCain explained that the number of people making politically-driven personal attacks against her father, particularly since he was diagnosed with brain cancer nearly a year go, had left her feeling uncharacteristically anti-social.

“I’m normally a very social person. I like people, my father’s a politician. I don’t want to go out to dinner anymore, I don’t want to be in public. I don’t want to be around anyone I’m not really close to.

It’s a really odd feeling to feel like we’re in a really divisive part of the country. I don’t know where you stand politically on my father’s cancer, so I’m paranoid about going out to dinner.”
McCain went on to thank her cohosts, saying that despite their political differences, the women she shares the table with every day had shown her kindness and comfort — and she challenged the audience to do the same. “I don’t want to be like this, I don’t want to be someone that doesn’t want to socialize.”
