Arizona Senator John McCain, 81, was diagnosed with glioblastoma, a deadly form of brain cancer, last July. Ben Domenech, a conservative pundit and McCain’s son-in-law, reportedly tweeted on Saturday saying that McCain asked him to “take care” of his daughter.

In his tweet, Domenech noted his father-in-law hugged him, asking to “take care” of Meghan. Domenech issued his tweet at 8:16 p.m. in Arizona, although it was deleted within two hours of its posting. Meghan McCain, who is best known as the conservative co-host on The View, married Domenech last November.

Moreover, the long-running politician authored a new book called The Restless Wave, where McCain confesses that he will not seek reelection for another term. “If I hadn’t admitted that to myself before this summer, a stage 4 cancer diagnosis acts as ungentle persuasion,” McCain wrote.

As he’s nearing the end of his career in politics, McCain’s book opens up on his views regarding the current political climate, saying, “I’m freer than colleagues who will face the voters again. I can speak my mind without fearing the consequences much. And I can vote my conscience without worry.”

Speaking of Donald Trump, McCain expressed, “He has declined to distinguish the actions of our government from the crimes of despotic ones. The appearance of toughness, or a reality show facsimile of toughness, seems to matter more than any of our values.”
