Meghan McCain to Trump: I could help you

(CNN)-Call it a lovefest between a mogul and a McCain. In an interview for The Daily Beast on Thursday, possible GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump and the daughter of 2008 GOP presidential nominee John McCain expressed mutual affection for one another.

Meghan McCain, a columnist for The Daily Beast, asked the real estate mogul if she could be hired onto Trump's campaign, in case there is a campaign, to which Trump responded, "I love it!"

He proceeded to ask for advice about the critical states of Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina - states which will host the first nominating contests in the nation. McCain replied, "I could definitely help you."

And the McCain household has another Draft Trump supporter. McCain revealed that upon learning about the interview with Trump, Cindy McCain responded, "I think he can really do this."

Although he wasn't open enough to discuss what investigators have found in Hawaii while researching President Barack Obama's birth, Trump did continue his barrage of insults against former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney - who he says is "going to lose" - voice his displeasure at recent television interviews, and recommit to an announcement of some kind before June.

"You watch what I do before June," he said. "Maybe you can come over and see it because it will be a press conferenceā€¦ I'm not going to disappoint you."

"And more important, will you say hello to your mother and your father for me?" Trump asked. "I love them. They're great people."

    I knew that deep down inside this mccain was just like her father. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
    What is she vying for? To be the next bad hair man's wife. The latest is already getting old for his liking.
    "he can do it"? Just like you did old man?
