OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Meghan McCain, the former cohost of the ABC talk show “The View and daughter of the late Republican Sen. John McCain, and her husband Ben Domenech have announced the birth of baby number two.

“We are overjoyed to welcome our new daughter Clover Jade McCain Domenech on Thursday morning. Thank you all for the well wishes – we are all blissed out happy, healthy and exhausted!” she said on Instagram, adding a famous quote. “’Here’s to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them.’”

McCain, who is now a columnist for The Daily Mail, shared news of the birth of Clover on Friday with the publication.


“Yesterday morning, we welcomed our newest addition, Clover Jade McCain Domenech, to our family!” she said. “Ben and I are overjoyed to introduce Liberty to her baby sister and start this new adventure as a family.”

“Meghan’s strength and love for our daughters is boundless. I feel so blessed that her and Clover are both doing well and I cannot wait for our entire family to meet our baby girl,” her husband, Domenech, said.

The couple tied the knot in November 2017, in front of about 100 guests at her family’s ranch in Sedona, Ariz.

They got engaged at the Mayo Clinic where her father, the late Sen. John McCain, was undergoing a scan for his cancer at the time. He died in August 2018. 

Meghan’s mother Cindy said: ‘The whole family is over the moon to welcome our newest bundle of joy, Clover.

‘Words can’t describe how excited I am to provide my granddaughter with all the love in the world.’

It is a much nicer time for McCain than of of her former cohosts on “The View.”

Joy Behar, the cohost of the ABC talk show “The View” is not likely to be accused of fact checking before making accusations.

This week the host, who has drawn the ire of conservatives many times, accused the district attorney who charged actor Alec Baldwin with involuntary manslaughter of acting for political reasons and contended that she only charged him because she is a Republican.

Just one issue. The attorney general is a Democrat.


“Also, you know, the DA who is indicting him or whatever the legal term is right now – she’s a big Republican. I’m only saying this because Alec Baldwin is a target for Republicans. They cannot stand him. Okay? I’m just saying,” she said. “I’m not saying anything more than that.”

But when the show came back from break she had to fix what she said.

“Clarification! Something I said last segment. It’s the special prosecutor who’s now the Republican politician in New Mexico. And not the current DA. I get them mixed up sometimes. So, sue me!” she said.

Prior to making her false accusation she defended Baldwin.


“Um, Alec is facing up to five years in prison, and yesterday his lawyer said, quote, ‘he relied on the professionals with whom he worked who assured him that the gun did not have live rounds.’

“So, do you agree with that? I have to say, before I even throw it out there, that there were four other producers on the show who have not been charged, on the movie. Why? That’s one question I have. He is — he was a producer of story credit. So, he had creative involvement, not exactly the job of somebody who would have to check the gun. That’s the job of other people,” she said.

“And, you know, as a person who’s been in a couple of movies, all you’re thinking of is your part when you are an actor. You’re not worried — I was not worried that that set — my brassiere’s going to fall off me or whatever. Somebody else has to worry about that. You’re interested in your lines, in your character, and where am where was I two minutes ago? That’s it. So, I don’t really understand what this is about,” she said.


But cohost Alyssa Farah Griffin defended the charges.

“I actually strongly agree with the charges,” she said.

“You disagree with what I said?” Behar said.

“I disagree with you, respectfully. In the state of New Mexico, involuntary manslaughter means unintentionally killing someone by being negligent. So, negligence alone is the standard that you have to meet. And there are incredible processes in place. Guns are used – firearms are using in movies every day and there are processes and steps taken,” Farah Griffin said.
