WASHINGTON (CNN) – Sen. John McCain is laughing off daughter Meghan’s claim that his presidential campaign has taken a toll on her love life.

"I have to say I have a beautiful daughter and I have bright prospects for her professionally and socially," he said on Fox News Sunday.

"I'm proud of all my children. Sometimes they say things that I would not do or say - that's what young people are all about."

In a recent blog post on the Daily Beast, Meghan McCain listed the exclusion of “obsessive supporters of my dad" as one of the campaign-related developments that had reduced her romantic prospects.

    Some of you people are incredible! All week long; all we have heard about is how to have great arms like Michelle Obama – And you attack the daughter of a war hero and true patriot of this country.

    You better believe it old man. Your daughter has a life outside of your arena. Glad she was able to tell the world.

    What's a parent to do. he handled it right, I have a daughter about the same age, and gosh knows some of the things she says but then again I remember when I was her age and the shudders i gave my Mom. So think back to your youth before you judge.
