Meghan McCain first gig after leaving ‘The View’ is ‘columnist for the Daily Mail’

The Prince's Trust Awards, The London Palladium, UK

Meghan McCain is finally off The View. Over the summer, she announced her resignation after years of causing toxic drama and making absolutely zero sense. I’ve been curious to see what was next for Meghan – while I consider her talentless, stupid, annoying, terrible and toxic, I’m pretty sure that’s all blonde women need to be a Fox News anchor. We knew that Meghan would likely build her personal brand through books and TV appearances, but I didn’t really predict this: Meghan McCain now has a gig writing for the Daily Mail??

“A completely uncensored free space”? Trust me, honey, the Daily Mail is absolutely censored, but it’s the kind of censoring conservative trolls like. They censor and oppress people of color and anyone criticizing the Queen or the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The DM is a right-wing rag. Which makes it sort of perfect for McCain?

McCain has been on a retweeting spree this week, so she also retweeted a congratulatory tweet from Piers Morgan, who is a contributing senior editor to the Daily Mail as well. Which brings me to my first thought about this announcement – while Meghan McCain is obviously a stupid, conservative wingnut, she’s actually gone out of her way to defend the Duchess of Sussex several times. Will that change now that she’s a Daily Mail writer? Probably. I would imagine she’ll write a lot about how woke celebrities like Meghan and Harry are destroying America’s special relationship with the UK.

    Wow, so she couldn’t even get a gig on Fox News?

    • Noki says:

      Are Fox and Daily Mail not friends? No seriously asking because Piers wrote for the Fail and also was a host somewhere else,so i ws wondering if she can do both.

      • Becks1 says:

        I think they appeal to similar audiences, so she could certainly do both, but I’m surprised she’s starting at the DM.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        Piers was a host for CNN with his own primetime show. Piers replaced Larry King when Larry retired. Piers was fired from CNN because he wanted to do political interviews with celebrities instead of celebrity interviews with celebrities. Every interview Piers did he would hammer the guest regarding their views on gun-control. Even CNN had enough of this and his BS.

      Didn’t Fix trash her Dad? I know Trump did. Don’t watch the View but I think Meghan exists in that weird traditional values but not Q/Trumpublican space.

    • L4frimaire says:

      She probably couldn’t get Fox because Trump hated her dad, and frankly, she’d have to lose weight to get the gig. They like their blondes thin. What exactly will she write about? Meghan and Harry, because there’s not enough people to do that🙄. Attack the Biden administration or maybe MVP Harris specifically? She’s as deep as a puddle with a mean streak, but I’m not going to start reading that rag because John McCains daughter is writing some crap.

    Downgrade

    So the crap has sunk to the bottom….sounds about white

  7. Lena says:

    What an easy job. You don’t even have to know how to write coherently to write for the Daily Mail. Sounds about right for
    her.

  8. BlueSky says:

    Is her column going to be called “John McCain’s daughter says”

  9. Snuffles says:

    Yup, she’ll be deployed to attack Harry and Meghan and pump up Will and Kate.

    • Jegede says:

      Yup.
      I can legit see the headlines now.

      And having Meghan go after Meghan, as McCain bashes the Sussexes in the pages of of the Daily Heil, will do wonders for DM’s encroachment in the US market.

      Especially, now Trump’s no longer there to feed poisonous Harry & Meghan quotes.

    Sounds about white

  11. Catherine says:

    McCain’s defense of the Duchess of Sussex is a very recent switch. Previously, she quite frequently expressed shady opinions and was quick to jump negative speculative stories. She did seem to be affected by the interview. I suspect she will go back to her shady views. Her going to work for the daily Mail is not surprising to me because she frequently commented on their political stories and complimented their coverage which is decidedly right wing. The DM has been full on anti Biden so I’m sure she will jump on that and will happily join in on the anti Sussex narrative if she views as as politically expedient the way that other right wing commentators have.

  12. Valerie says:

    Lmao! At least it isn’t her husband’s paper.

    • WithTheAmerican says:

      I’m betting he will “write” her columns for her just like he told her what to “think” and say on The View.

      • Valerie says:

        I’d always wondered why it seemed like she was concentrating on listening to someone in her ear. He probably was feeding her her opinions!

  13. House of No says:

    What a glow down!

  14. Jessie Quinton says:

    They hire any racist xenophobic C-Lister to write for the Fail. I wouldn’t be so quick to jot this job down on my CV.

  15. beff says:

    I cackled with glee to learn that even Faux News hates Meghan “My Father” McCain. She’s in the right place, a right wing gossip rag.

  16. girl_ninja says:

    I’m trying to be more positive in what I put out into the universe. But this woman disgusts me. She is so hateful and nasty and uses her fathers name for fame. What a disgrace.

  17. TIFFANY says:

    She got a gold digger and a baby to support.

    I wonder if Cindy cut her off because this is embarrassing, even for My Father.

  18. Marivic says:

    So this clown has joined the rota clowns. All of them are racists.

  19. Galisteo says:

    Most of the Daily Mail comments are extremely pro Trump. I remember them posting against any article that mentioned her Dad, so not sure she is going to receive a warm reception there.

  20. Giddy says:

    The Daily Mail’s hiring of McCain makes me feel smart for already not reading that rag. This is just an extra reason to never give them page views.

  21. Jananell says:

    I quit giving her air. Daddy would be so disappointed. Showing her true nature. Erring on the evil. I damn them to their chosen fates. Free at last. Whew I feel better. 🤠

  22. Shanaynay says:

    Officially will stop reading the daily mail if this twit is now writing for them.

  23. Huh says:

    She can laugh at herself tho.
    They should make it snarky, like a column called
    “Ask the Princess of Arizona”
    W celeb & political questions. Quick, easy for her & a good read IMO
