McCain graduated with a bachelor’s degree in art history in 2007 and interned at “Saturday Night Live” and “Newsweek.”


In 2007, Meghan began documenting John’s presidential campaign on “McCain Blogette,” as well as writing about pop culture and fashion. In September 2008, she released “My Dad, John McCain,” a children’s book about her dad’s military service and presidential aspirations. The book became a bestseller, and a portion of the proceeds were donated to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. Meghan began contributing to “The Daily Beast” in early 2009, and the following year, she released her political memoir “Dirty Sexy Politics.” Around this time, she also began appearing on “The View” as a guest co-host.

In 2011, McCain and Michael Ian Black spent a month traveling across America in an RV, leading to the book “America, You Sexy Bitch: A Love Letter to Freedom.” That year, she also began appearing as an analyst on MSNBC, and in 2013, she got her own talk show, “Raising McCain,” on the Pivot channel.
