Don’t add Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) to the list of critics who are denouncing NBC News’s decision to hire Chelsea Clinton as a contributor to the network.
Clinton, 31, will serve as a special correspondent for “NBC Nightly News” and “Rock Center With Brian Williams,” according to a Monday press release.
But McCain is a fan of the hire. His 27-year-old daughter, Meghan, also recently joined the NBC family, making her debut a few weeks ago as an MSNBC contributor. When ITK asked how he felt about Clinton joining his daughter on the network, the senior senator exclaimed with a broad smile, “It’s a match made in heaven!”
