Meghan McCain, a panelist on the program, told Biden on Wednesday she hadn't been able to get through his new memoir, "Promise Me, Dad," which centers on the 2015 death of his son, Beau, from an aggressive tumor called glioblastoma. Doctors diagnosed Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain with the same type of tumor this past summer.

Biden told Meghan McCain not to lose hope and that a medical breakthrough is possible.

"And it can happen tomorrow," Biden said, adding that if anyone can beat brain cancer it's John McCain.
