Meghan McCain has announced that, after four years with the show, she is leaving “The View.” Rumors of her announcement started circulating before she confirmed the news, which she did indeed confirm during the show. And for the many, the news is more than welcome.
“This was not an easy decision. It took a lot of thought and counsel and prayer and talking to my close family and friends,” McCain said of making the choice to leave. “Look, COVID has changed the world for all of us. And it changed the way, at least for me, the way I am looking at life, the way I’m living my life, the way I want my life to look like.”
McCain added that she simply felt that this was the right decision for her at this point in her life. But, even before she officially announced her departure, celebrations began on Twitter. “Ding dong the witch is dead Meghan McCain is leaving #TheView,” Rob Gill tweeted.

Of course, some already have ideas for her replacement. “The only way for this show to atone for the years Meghan McCain hosted is to hire Ziwe,” David Hill tweeted. Meanwhile, writer Charlotte Clymer offered herself up for the job.

Meghan McCain is leaving The View and a vacancy. While I realize the show is supposed to be all ladies, I’d like to submit my candidacy and also declare I may not be a lady, but I can be a bitch.

Naturally, some are already speculating that because of her political views, McCain will head over to Fox News after her time with ABC. McCain was generally the most conservative opinion on the panel of hosts, which typically features more liberal women like Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar. McCain and Behar have had a particularly tumultuous on-air relationship, but in recent weeks, things have gotten contentious with Whoopi as well.

That said, McCain did have some support in her future endeavors. South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham tweeted his support, saying that he’s “100% certain that [her] best days lie ahead as a conservative commentator and thought-leader among her generation.”
100% certain that @MeghanMcCain best days lie ahead as a conservative commentator and thought-leader among her generation.
Meghan is highly intelligent, feisty, patriotic and stands up for her causes.
I wonder where she got that from?
