(FOX NEWS) - Meghan McCain is standing behind embattled former Vice President Joe Biden, tweeting Monday in support of the potential 2020 presidential contender.
"Joe Biden is one of the truly decent and compassionate men in all of American politics," McCain wrote.
"The View" co-host lauded Biden for helping her through her late father Sen. John McCain's struggle with brain cancer last year. The elder McCain, a Republican from Arizona who was the GOP's presidential nominee in 2008, died last August at age 81.
Joe Biden is one of the truly decent and compassionate men in all of American politics. He has helped me through my fathers diagnosis, treatment and ultimate passing more than anyone of my fathers friends combined. I wish there was more empathy from our politicians not less.— Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) April 2, 2019
Biden's son Beau Biden had died of a similar cancer in 2015 at age 46.
