Meghan McCain is out!
As the Republican voice of The View bid farewell on Friday, August 6, her fellow cohosts showered her with love, but fans of the daytime talk show flocked to social media to express their glee that the 36-year-old was gone.
“The wicked witch is gone. Bye Meghan!,” someone declared via Twitter. “Long live the View!” while a fourth commented: “Today is a good day! It’s buh bye to @MeghanMcCain !! She’s no longer on @TheView and we’re loving it!”
As OK! previously reported, McCain announced her exit on air Thursday, July 1. John McCain’s daughter joined The View in 2017 after leaving Fox News and often butted heads with her fellow cohosts, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sara Haines, Sunny Hostin and guest host Ana Navarro.
Although no announcement has been made on who will fill the mother-of-one’s seat at the Hot Topics table, OK! learned that producers are scrambling to find a “Trump Republican” to replace McCain.
“It's chaos behind-the-scenes at The View,” an ABC insider spilled, adding that the remaining ladies are panicking over who might join them on the panel. “Joy Behar is openly moaning about Meghan leaving as it's finally hit her that sometimes it is better the devil you know.”
“Joy has only just realized that they could be getting someone much further right on the political spectrum than Meghan who won't put up with her crap,” the source continued, adding that if ABC was smart, they’d do a “massive shake up” and hire a staunch conservative, like Megyn Kelly, political commentator Candace Owens or Donald Trump Jr.’s girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle.
