After being presented with the medal by Joe Biden, the war hero said he was humbled by the award before railing into the Donald Trump-fueled nationalism that has run rampant in the U.S., risking the country's place of prominence in the eyes of the global community.

The Republican said it was "such a privilege" to be on the show as she took her official seat next to cohosts Joy Behar, Sara Haines, Whoopi Goldberg, and Sunny Hostin.

She also acknowledged the shoes she was filling:

"It's so iconic, specifically, to be sitting in this chair that Elisabeth [Hasselbeck] made so great. I watched Elisabeth … as a young Republican in college. You know, to be the conservative on this show is something that I take very seriously."

Of her father's current health crisis, the 33-year-old said:

"When you hear cancer, a nuclear bomb goes off in your life. No matter who you are, I didn't realize how intense and disruptive and scary and hopeless and chaotic you would feel all day long."

We told you!

As soon as we saw Jedediah Bila attempt to salvage her dignity with a sweet goodbye to The View — and hello to no new job on the horizon — we knew the job was Meghan McCain's!

The daughter of John McCain had just left Fox News and seemed like an obvious GET as the conservative chair.

Well, according to Variety, that sit is official now!

The outlet is reporting Meghan has signed on to join Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, Paula Faris, and Sara Haines starting in October.

Good! They need a strong, smart conservative voice that won't just tow the GOP party line — even when it's some nonsensical idea of Donald Trump's!

What do YOU think of Meghan taking Miss Jed's place at the table?

Jimmy Kimmel Praises Senators John McCain & Susan Collins For Essentially Killing The Graham-Cassidy Bill

Can't stop, won't stop.

As you've probably heard, Jimmy Kimmel has been a vocal opponent to the GOP's (now practically dead) Graham-Cassidy health care bill. It all started when Senator Bill Cassidy promised the funny man that he'd fight for health care reform that would be available to those with preexisting conditions.

This meant the world to Jimmy as, following his newborn son's emergency open heart surgery, Kimmel realized his flesh-and-blood would've had a lifelong struggle with obtaining health care coverage if it weren't for his A-lister status.

However, when he realized that Cassidy had lied to him, Kimmel dedicated

It's not looking good for John McCain.

On Sunday's 60 Minutes, the Arizona senator opened up about the moment he was diagnosed with brain cancer earlier this year, and the "very poor" prognosis he received from doctors.

Back in July, McCain was at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix for a routine check up when doctors found a blood clot in his left eye. The Republican was driving home when his doctor called and said he needed to turn around for emergency surgery to remove the clot.

It was days after the surgery when doctors told McCain he had glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer — and his prognosis wasn't bright. He explained to CBS:

John McCain Will Vote 'No' On The Evil Graham-Cassidy Health Care Bill & Jimmy Kimmel Is Eternally Grateful!

no title

For the past few months, the GOP has been trying to repeal Obamacare with shitty — er, "skinny" — replacement bills that would take away healthcare for millions of Americans.

And they would've gotten away with it, too… if it wasn't for that pesky John McCain!

On Friday, the Republican Senator announced in a statement that he cannot "in good conscience" vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal knowing how it will affect those with pre-existing conditions and insurance premiums overall.

McCain said Republicans and Democrats "have not yet really tried" to work together and come up with a bipartisan approach, which he feels is necessary to do when drafting a bill that affects so many lives.

The veteran's opposition makes it very unlikely that the bill will garner the 50 votes needed to reach Donald Trump's desk before September 30, since Senators Rand Paul and Susan Collins are also expected to vote "no" on the proposal.

GOP leaders are reported to be at the "evaluating options" stage right now, but critics of the bill are already thanking McCain for standing his moral ground — especially Jimmy Kimmel, who made his opposition no secret to late night audiences.

Read McCain's full statement (below) along with the love and respect he got from most of Twitter!
