Politically, Meghan McCain and Joe Biden have a lot to argue about. But emotionally, they're on the same page.

McCain, the daughter of Arizona Sen. John McCain (R), and the former Democratic vice president shared a heartwarming moment on The View on Wednesday as McCain emotionally discussed her father's cancer diagnosis. The senator was diagnosed with gliobastoma earlier this year — the same cancer that Biden's son, Beau, passed away from in 2015.

On the show, McCain tearfully told Biden how she thinks about Beau almost every day because of the shared diagnosis. Biden quickly walked over to McCain and grabbed her hand, describing how Beau looked up to her father and his courage, long before they were affected by the same illness.

Biden and the senator are longtime friends. "There is hope," Biden told McCain. "And if anybody can make it, your dad [can]." Watch the whole exchange below. Kathryn Krawczyk

Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz is retiring after the 2016 season, and his last hurrah isn't off to a bad start. Fenway warmly welcomed him to his last home opener Monday, The Boston Globe reports.

A slew of Boston sports stars honored him on the field, but that doesn't hold a candle to his 15-year-old daughter, Alex, singing the national anthem. Ortiz didn't necessarily tear up — maybe there was just something in his eye. Julie Kliegman

A couple weeks ago, the Toronto Blue Jays traded Brett Lawrie to the Oakland Athletics, and Amelia, a 6-year-old Blue Jays fan, was not pleased.

"That guy's gonna be too good," she cries in a YouTube video of her dad breaking news of the trade. "They're never gonna wanna trade back!"

On Friday, Lawrie did what he could to make Amelia feel a little bit better, surprising her with a visit at a local pizza place.

D'aw. You can even watch a video of the meeting on Lawrie's Instagram, here. Sarah Eberspacher
