's mother revealed this on Andy Cohen
's Sirius XM show, but she admits she shouldn't be surprised by her daughter's fiery personality because her family nickname is "John McCain
in a Dress."
Cindy McCain initially insisted that her daughter is "doing a fantastic job" on the show.
“She stands up for what she believes in, and that’s all you can ask for; she’s also really smart, so I appreciate what she does, even if I don’t always agree with her.”
McCain did admit, however, that she is irritated when her daughter Meghan gets into on-air arguments with co-hosts such as Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, and Sunny Hostin.
“Yeah, as a mother, you teach your children
to be polite and nice to other people
and all that kind of stuff, and it does make me cringe a little bit,” Cindy McCain said. “But, again, it’s her job and what she does, and it’s Whoopi’s job to keep the peace, so I understand everything that’s going on there, but as a mother, yeah, it does bother me a little bit.”
