After his death, Meghan took a break from her co-hosting duties on The View, having just returned last week. On her first day back on the morning show, an emotional Meghan thanked her co-hosts for their support and encouragement.
In addition to gushing over her co-hosts, Meghan also called out the country’s divisive political climate.
“We can never surrender what is happening in the country right now. I know people are scared. We do not surrender. I am not surrendering,” she said. “ You don't do it either and you have to join me in not surrendering. I am still here fighting and I want all of you to fight with me.”
Meghan’s statements about the country on The View echoed her powerful eulogy at her father’s memorial service last month.
"The America of John McCain is generous and welcoming and bold. She is resourceful and confident and secure. She meets her responsibilities. She speaks quietly because she is strong. America does not boast because she has no need," she said during the service. "The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great.”
