Name: Meghan Marguerite McCain
Born: October 23, 1984
Occupation: Media personality and author
Meghan McCain was born in Phoenix, Arizona on October 23, 1984. She is the daughter of John McCain, an Arizona Republican Senator and 2008 presidential candidate, and Cindy Hensley McCain, an entrepreneur and philanthropist. She has seven siblings: Jack, Douglas, Bridget, James, John Sidney, Andrew and Sidney.
Meghan attended Phoenix Country Day School and Xavier College Preparatory, an all-girls private Catholic high school. Upon completion of her secondary studies, Meghan enrolled in Columbia University and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in art history. During her years in college, she interned at Newsweek and Saturday Night Live.
She participated in her father’s 2008 bid for the White House, which included extensive blogging. She also wrote a book during this interesting time for her family entitled “My Dad, John McCain.” Her role was eventually diminished because campaign officials deemed her as “too controversial.”
In 2009, Meghan signed on to The Daily Beast, providing her opinion on a wide range of political issues. Over the next couple of years, she wrote two books called “Dirty Sexy Politics” and “America, You Sexy Bitch: A Love Letter to Freedom.”
Between 2015 and 2017, Meghan served as a nationally syndicated radio talk show host on “America Now.” Her media career continued when she was tapped to serve as a co-host for Pivot as well as a Fox News contributor. It was confirmed in September 2017 that Meghan would become the 21st co-host for the hit daytime talk show “The View” – her role would be a conservative commentator.
Some of her political opinions consist of supporting sex education, gay rights, same-sex marriage and stem-cell research. She did not vote for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election – she wrote in Evan McMullin, an independent presidential candidate.
We estimate that Meghan McCain’s net worth is $4 million (2017).
So how much is $4 million really?
$4 million can cover just one percent of the costs of a presidential campaign. $4 million can also pay for the tuition of all McCain children to attend Columbia University.
