Meghan McCain Exiting ‘The View’

Courtesy/ABC

UPDATED: In a major shake-up at the table again for ABC’s morning ladies talkfest, The View, comes word that Meghan McCain will be leaving the series.

McCain had been on the series for nearly four years.  She is scheduled to announce the move on today’s episode of The View.

According to Deadline, McCain will be taking an extended hiatus that has the potential to become a permanent exit.

Meghan is always at an epicenter of opposing remarks at the table as the co-host panels conservative; something she inherited after the exit of Elisabeth Hasselbeck who had a ten-year run on the show from 2003-2013.

Share your thoughts on McCain’s departure in the comment section. But first, check out Meghan’s announcement on her exit on today’s episode of The View below.

Bring back Jebidiah A bila
Major mistake letting her go for Megan
Jeb is capable of expressing her unpopular opinion with the panel in a cool and calm manor while Megan has tantrums and hissy fits which although makes for great shock value becomes tiresome!
Get Jeb who just ditched Fox for muzzling her and plead and beg for her to come back
Imo Sarahs fine but I’d rather have the other republican who does Fridays ( forgot name) to be fulltime too!

I politically do not agree with Jeb but she is someone I can respect to express her opinions, and better help me understand the other side of political issues from which I lean. Ana brings humor and straight talk. She grew up in Nicaragua, so provides a very interesting perspective. Maybe The View can establish the two of them as the 5th host, every other week, and then also be available to fill in when another host has a last minute absence or previously scheduled days off. I enjoy both Jeb and Ana. And they both have the ability to… Read more »

And now we do not need to see all the bizarre and very distracting hairstyles for a tv talk show of intelligent women speaking their “views”.

I think Sarah brings such a balance and gives hope to hard situations. Anna Navarro and Jeb are both good choices too.

Was on fox
They let her go
Apparently she was being too outspoken against the typical Fox repitive Trump lovefest script

It was about damn time. She was a stain on The View, and not the right person for the position she holds. Her behaviour is that of a child in an adult-sized body. And while her predecessor, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, was problematic, she at least wasn’t as jarring as McCain has been. Not to mention, Hasselbeck’s mother never had to speak out about her behaviour on the panel. What Disney-ABC needs to do is give Ana Navarro-Cárdenas a full-time deal with the talk show, or, if she does not want it, try and lure Jedediah Bila back to the panel. She… Read more »

Can’t really work up any enthusiasm for these panel talk shows. Don’t really care at all. They replaced the time slots for our soaps and I’ll never support them in any fashion.

Finally. She was rude, dismissive, condescending and entitled. I don’t care about her politics, but I stopped watching because of her treatment of others. Maybe I’ll be able to watch it again. . .

I completely agree.
When she didn’t agree with someone, she was do disrespectful and called people names.
She was always having temper tantrums and was so rude. She doesn’t know how to have a conversation with some one and disagree.
She is very unprofessional.

Preface: I was a fan of Megan McCain for a long while since her Dad ran for the presidency and liked her on The View for the first couple of years but she’s got issues… major issues. I try to understand her POV however, it’s so much more enjoyable to watch the show when Ana Navarro is filling in or on during her regular Friday shows. Megan has definitely changed to an angry and un-enjoyable cohost. And I’ve been done with her for the past few months- she’s so angry at a Biden administration yet she was so close to… Read more »

Yes, she’s abrasive and often impolite and cynical. But her voice was much easier to absorb than Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who was simply obnoxious. I enjoyed hearing stories about Megan’s life in politics and, of course, about John McCain — a gentleman and true American the likes of which we just don’t see much anymore. Hopefully, Ana Navarro will fill in more.

Nah….Ana Navarro isn’t going to get that slot. Unless she bleaches her hair. They always have had one blonde Republican in that chair. It must be in the contract or something. As much as I hate to even verbalize such a thing, I suspect that Trump shill Kaylee Mc A-ninny (or however you spell the obnoxious twit’s name) is going to get the job. And she’ll make you nostalgic for Hasselbeck…. let alone Meghan.

Not that I ever watch The View, but it’s a great tool to torment the damned down here.

I may not align politically with McCain — and I do admire her late father, but (1) she is constantly outnumbered and thus ganged up on; and (2) moderator Whoopi Goldberg constantly cuts her off and abruptly goes to commercial anytime McCain says something Goldberg doesn’t like, as though Goldberg’s position is all that matters. So it’s a tough gig…

Soaphound

Well, Jamesj75, after all this time, we finally DISAGREE about something. As the “moderator” in my book club, I feel empathy for Whoopi’s position. It’s TOUGH trying to keep people on topic in any situation, let alone on live T.V. while some producer is probably constantly reminding her to “go to break. NOW!” Kind of a thankless task at times. In fact, I think Meghan was given too much latitude when she began talking louder and more rudely when she felt challenged. But I respect her views. It’s when we CAN’T express different opinions that I start to worry. On… Read more »

Hey Soaphound! So great to hear from you! And it’s quite alright to disagree at times, isn’t it? I knew I was going against the grain here, a role I don’t mind on occasion. I often agree with what Goldberg says, I just think she’s too dismissive of different opinions (IMHO). I do understand the points you’re making about the moderator position, and your points are well taken. I always like reading your posts, too, so thank you for that, Friend! It’s very rare that something is not deemed acceptable. But in the post where I lamented (to Steve, I… Read more »

I’m thrilled with her departure. Until she matures and can control her emotions, she does not belong on a show like The View. She is far too quick to emit a condescending tone and her need to constantly prove that she is friends with virtually everyone is borderline pathetic. She’s bright and well informed, but until she can control her temper, she needs to lay low for awhile. I’d like to see another younger woman (28-35) on the panel who can represent the younger perspective.

I’m glad she’s leaving. Just didn’t like her attitude, “communication” skills, and the scowl she always seemed to have on her face. She is surely is not Cindy, or John McCain.

When I heard that someone was leaving The View I prayed that it would be Joy Behar. Instead it is Megan. This goes to prove that prayers are not answered.

Ana Navarro is not getting the gig. First of all she lives in Miami full-time with her husband. She would have to move to NYC to take it. Plus she’s too much in agreement with the ladies as she shares too liberal views with them. They need someone who can present a very different view. As much as MM is hated by viewers she brought ratings to big highs. When the View had everyone with the same View the numbers plunged. Honestly I think Jeddediah Bila is perfect. She has built in chemistry with those four ladies and I loved… Read more »

They need a black or latina conservative on the show and a a straight down the middle independent. The show needs more balance and they need to let each one of them moderate. That would make them try to be fair to everybody.
