Meghan McCain will announce her resignation from ‘The View’ today??

Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel at arriv...

Meghan McCain is an asinine person. She couches her entire worldview in racism, lies and contempt. Her coworkers on The View hate her. Whoopi Goldberg’s health is suffering because Meghan is so awful. It feels like every week, there’s some terrible new Meghan McCain story about how she acted hateful or lied a bunch of times on The View. People have been calling for her to be fired for years. And now, finally, Meghan might be leaving The View? Of her own volition, of course.

Meghan McCain is bidding farewell to “The View,” according to a new report. The conservative co-host is set to announce her resignation on Thursday morning’s show, ending her four-season run at the end of July, according to the Daily Mail.

“We have tried to keep her, but she is adamant that now is the right time for her to leave,” a Disney source told the Daily Mail. The 36-year-old still had two years left in her contract, according to the report.

At the beginning of the year, McCain sounded like she wasn’t planning an imminent exit from the talk show — while discussing her regular on-air clashes with more liberal “View” co-hosts, most notably Joy Behar.

“Because whether we like it or not, I’m not going anywhere on the show, Joy’s not going anywhere on the show, we all have to live and co-exist together just like Americans right now,” she said on “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen” in mid-January, “which is a little deeper of an answer, but we’re all going to try and co-exist and I really want to have us all move forward.”

I hope this is true. She had a baby last year, so maybe that will be her “excuse,” as in “working motherhood is so hard y’all, I need to quit this show and work on my conservative mommy-blog!” The blog will be called My Father Was John McCain. Anyway, if this is true, I hope Joy Behar and Whoopi are popping champagne as we speak.

    I didn’t realize she and I are the same age, wow. She looks older than I feel like I do.

    I can’t stand watching her. :-/

    • MsIam says:

      Agree! I had no idea she was only 36. But yeah buh-bye hunny! Maybe she’ll appear in one of her awful husbands movies.

  2. EnormousCoat says:

    Good riddance to bad rubbish.

  3. lucy2 says:

    I will be glad if and when she fades from the spotlight.

    • huckle says:

      She’ll probably run for office or something like that. I’m guessing she won’t fade away.

  4. Becks1 says:

    Good, she’s awful. It’s like once every 6 months she says something that makes sense and you think, “wow I’m agreeing with Meghan McCain, what is going on?” and then the next day she’s back to being awful.

    • Snuffles says:

      A broken clock is right twice a day.

    • Soupie says:

      Yeah, she redeems herself and then goes right back to being awful. Recently she actually went several days being cool and then radically blew it.

  5. Ann says:

    LOL at the name of her blog.

  6. grabbyhands says:

    I mean, no one will miss her but it will still be galling to watch her use this to pretend to be a conservative martyr because if anyone thinks she’s going to disappear, I fear they are deluded.

    She’ll be all over Fox News and any other Republican rag complaining about how she was constantly being picked on and marginalized and now she’ll be able to do it without the constraint of even pretending to try to play nice.

  7. pottymouth pup says:

    yesterday, in all her asshattery in her analysis of Black athletes protesting systemic racism in the US she actually complained that our enemies are “using our own propaganda against us” I don’t think she realized that she admitted all that xenophobic supernationalism that her beloved GQP intentionally mislabels as patriotism is nothing but propaganda

  8. TIFFANY says:

    Unless her mother releases another trust fund, her marriage is all but over.

    • CourtneyB says:

      She didn’t use to be so bad. But she’s gotten way worse since marrying her Federalist writing, Fox guest anchoring hubby Ben Domenich.

  9. Anonymous says:

    I don’t watch The View. Is there any conservative left? The show should use this opportunity to hire a good person with a different point of view. Meghan is NOT this.

    • Christa says:

      I agree. She has the wrong temperament for this job. They need someone like Kelly Ripa but who is conservative. Some of those other ladies can be a bit too serious as well. Not to diminish the issues they talk about. …unless they are marketing to people who get into their micro dramas. That really could be a thing. I don’t watch it. Do they discuss anything that’s cheerful?

    • Murphy says:

      Too bad for them Jenna Hager has a good job, she would be a decent fit too

    • pottymouth pup says:

      Isn’t Sunny Hostin a Republican?

      Also, McCain kept blocking Ana Navarro so maybe they can make Navarro a regular to replace
      McCain

  10. Amy Bee says:

    I hope this is true.

  11. girl_ninja says:

    I do hope she leaves. Having daily updates on this hateful white supremacist monster is tiresome.

  12. Moira's Rose's Garden says:

    She may leave ABC but bet she ends up with her own program at NBC, the network that takes the misfits and unemployables from Fox. In fact, they’ll even throw out a highly rated show hosted by a BIPOC (Tamryn Hall) to make room for an unemployed Nazi (Megyn Kelly).

    Now they have Shep Smith on CNBC.

    NBC= Fox lite.

  13. Jayna says:

    Abby Huntsman, a Republican, anti-Trump, was a great addition to the show. They should bring her back. she left to run her dad’s campaign. He lost. So maybe she’s available. She was never brittle like Meghan and could actually articulate her thoughts and reasoning on issues, not look down at talking points like Meghan and just reciting them. And Ana Navarro comes on, but Meghan considered her a fake Republican for voting for Democratic candidates since the Republican Party became the Trumplican Party. It was always clear Ana couldn’t stand Meghan. The View wanted to bring Ana on full time, but I believe she wasn’t interested at the time.

    Meghan always complained she was the only conservative on the show, but she said that when Abby was there. Abby got along with everyone because she didn’t throw hissy fits on air, was more intelligent, and reasonable in thought, and she had a sense of humor, which Meghan is sorely lacking.

    Meghan always liked to play victim on the show.

    • Stan says:

      We were told on The View that Abby was leaving to work on her father’s campaign. Later it was confirmed on another talk show (maybe WWHL) that Abby and Meghan had a huge fight which led to Abby leaving. They had often talked about how they were best friends, so you have to wonder if Meghan treated her best friend so poorly, how does she treat the other panelists she actually dislikes? I won’t worry about her. She will get a job with The Federalist or OANN.

    • Ann says:

      I love Ana and think she would be a great fit, but I can imagine her not wanting the gig.

  14. Pamspam says:

    How is this show still on the air?

    • BothSidesNow says:

      That’s my question!! How has it survived this long? I don’t watch it, but what are their demographics? I don’t care for talk shows or reality tv, but this show is long passed its expiration date, by years!!

      • Valerie says:

        Honestly, I don’t think it’s that bad anymore, apart from Meghan. Its reputation precedes it, but it’s not the show it used to be. I didn’t watch it much before because all they did was talk over each other and talk about stupid shit, but the discussion is much better moderated now and it’s less of a headache.

  15. Diana says:

    All I can say is, yay! I don’t watch, but I hear commentary about and have seen snippets of her on the View. She is as self-centered as they come. She’s led a privileged life, and has no idea how other people live.

  16. lowercaselois says:

    Be careful what you wish for ,because there is always another one out there waiting to take her place. Especially someone knee deep in misinformation. I know it’s hard to believe, but could be much worse. Producers need to keep the on air “fights” going for ratings. Too many people love the drama (even when they say they don’t).

    • Valerie says:

      There might be, but they could always get Ana Navarro in to replace her permanently, if she wanted to.

  17. Sunday says:

    I have a really bad feeling about this, like ‘following in my father’s footsteps for the great state of Arizona’ bad feeling about this. Wow I hope I’m wrong. Sinema is a nightmare but that would be actual hell.

  18. Marietta says:

    Just yesterday I saw her saying breastfeeding is as hard as burying a loved one. I mean, yeah its hard. But I wouldn’t compare it to death. And I honestly don’t think MM has that problem. She is not relatable.

    • Ann says:

      WTF? She said that? Wow, I’ve done both. No comparison. That is really insensitive, frankly. Breast feeding is hard, it’s not tragic.

    • Valerie says:

      Let me guess, the loved one being her father?

  19. Athena says:

    Her goodbye is like an academy award speech. I would like to thank…..

    The women on the view are all smiles today

  20. Mimi says:

    BYE WONT MISS YA CHICK

  21. iconoclast59 says:

    Now that Megan’s starting to slide into middle age, I really see the physical resemblance to her dad. That’s all I got.

  22. Holland S says:

    They’ll just replace her with someone else annoying, but with less mockable styling.

  23. Lilly (with the double_L) says:

    St. Felecia, the patron saint of farewell, bids you adieu. I wish it were for the long haul, but St. Felecia can’t protect us from her forever. I’m sure there are “my dad would have wanted this” platforms waiting for her, unfortunately. But, I can still ignore.

  24. Ana170 says:

    I thought Meghan had been on the show a lot longer. It feels like I’ve been hear her ridiculous takes forever. It could be the baby but it also sounds like Whoopi has turned on her. Whoopi had been friends with her father (John McCain, in case you didn’t know), and would try to defend her from the others. Lately all the clips and memes have been of Whoopi running out of patience.

    • fluffy_bunny says:

      I think Whoopi recently snapped at all the ladies to shut up. She was dealing with sciatica so maybe she was in pain and couldn’t handle it anymore but I remember her being very snappy recently.

    • Valerie says:

      I think Whoopi’s frustration is justified. Meghan has gotten worse lately. She’s like an insolent little kid who stamps her foot every time someone says something she doesn’t like, lashes out and acts surprised when the other side reacts, and refuses to accept an apology when it’s given. Whoopi needlessly apologized the other week, and she just said there fuming like a five-year-old.

  25. Valerie says:

    She’ll have a nice cushy job at The Federalist after this. I’m glad she’s leaving. She was too combative, and her arguments were becoming increasingly ridiculous. She never missed an opportunity to bring things back to the Democrats, even when it didn’t apply, and couldn’t resist puckering up to kiss Republican ass. Even the other day, when they were talking about Jill’s Vogue cover and about whether or not it was appropriate for a political figure to be on the cover of a fashion magazine, she was like, “Well, I’m not a fan of Melania or the Trumps, but you can’t deny that she was a fashion icon.”

    Like, yeah, you frickin’ can, Meghan. She’s a terrible person, but let’s give her some credit because she knows how to dress? Please.

    • fluffy_bunny says:

      I’m assuming all FLOTUS have stylists so I doubt Melania is truly a fashion icon. As a high profile business person’s wife she would have a stylist so we’ve probably never really seen how Melania would dress herself.

      • Valerie says:

        I was going to add that! A lot of people cite her history as a model as evidence of her innate sense of style, ignoring the fact that models wear what they’re told to wear. They might have a personal interest or eye for clothing, but Melania definitely had someone else picking her outfits out for her, or at least making suggestions.

    • Tiffany says:

      She sits on the board of The Federalist. She is bankrolling that crap which is why it is funny she is quiting. What is she gonna do for money now.

      She was literally fired from her own father’s campaign. She ain’t a DC mover and shaker. What is she gonna do for cash to keep her Nazi in the lap of luxury.

  26. sa says:

    There is no doubt in my mind that she was fired. We know that The View likes for their their fired hosts to pretend it was their own decision, so I don’t see why any View host deciding to leave would be automatically taken at face value.
