Meghan McCain Is Out At “The View” After Four Years

July 1, 2021 / Posted by:

Managers, everywhere, you’ve been warned! Now that Meghan McCain’s days are free, it’s only a matter of time before she asks to speak to YOU, bitch!

All of the living things inside of the NYC studio where The View tapes can finally pull the industrial-strength plugs out of their hearing holes, because next season, the spoiled hyena wail of Meghan McCain will not be heard. I thought that Meghan McCain would be on there until the end of time, but she announced today that she’s leaving the show later this month after four years. The question is: How are we going to remember that Meghan McCain is John McCain’s daughter without her reminding us daily?

The final boss in Karen: The Video Game started off today’s episode by saying that she’s ripping off the “Band-Aid” and will end her reign of terror on The View later this month. Meghan said that the COVID-19 pandemic changed things for her, and after talking with everyone in her life, including God, she realized that she wants to stay in the DC area with her husband, Ben Domenech, and their almost one-year-old daughter Liberty. Meghan then let us know AGAIN that she didn’t really want to do The View but her father John McCain told her that she couldn’t miss out on an opportunity to be on such an iconic show and work with Whoopi Goldberg (“Lucky me.” – Whoopi Goldberg). And she also gave love to her current co-hosts, Sunny Hostin, Sara Haines, and her arch-nemesis Joy Behar, along with her former co-host Abby Huntsman. I’m sure Ana Navarro is doing the wall slide of sadness over Meghan McCain not shouting her out. via TVLine:

“On a professional note,” she added, “this show is one of the hands down greatest, most exhilarating, wonderful privileges of my entire life… It is a privilege to work alongside such strong, brilliant, intelligent, incredible broadcasters like the four of you. You are the most talented women on all of television, hands down, and it has been so incredible to do this with you.”

Whoopi said that she believes Meghan’s father John McCain wanted her to do the show because it’d toughen her up for motherhood (????). Sunny added that Meghan’s father John McCain told her that she’d learn to love and understand his pain-in-the-ass daughter and he was right. Sarah also said some words, and then Meghan’s frequent fightin’ partner, Joy Behar, said that Meghan is no “snowflake” and she appreciates what a “formidable opponent” Meghan was. And as Joy said that, she probably made a mental note to tell her doctor that they can lower the dose of her blood pressure medication now.

Meghan ended her goodbye speech by calling on the media to stop being so misogynistic while covering the show:

Honestly, Whoopi deserves her own Emmy for resisting the urge to throw her walker aside and do a dance of happiness like this:

Meghan kept it cordial in her exit announcement, but I’m sure she’ll give her true thoughts and go off on all of them during the first episode of her YouTube talk show called MEGets with Meghan McCain and Megyn Kelly!

Before Meghan’s announcement, The Daily Mail broke the story that The View will be Meghan McCain-less next season and that she still has two years on her contract. Page Six added that Meghan went to executives at ABC News and asked them to let her out of her contract because she doesn’t want to move back to NYC. The execs apparently begged her to stay and tried to sweeten her deal:

“ABC begged for her to stay [and] she said ‘No — I’m done! I’m not staying anymore,’” the source said.

“They even offered a contributor role on ABC News, which she turned down,” the source added. “She’s just had enough. She doesn’t need it anymore — she really doesn’t need it.”

Since Meghan’s batshittery gets The View a lot of attention, I half-believe that execs begged her to stay. One half of them (read: their wallets) probably wanted her to stay, while the other half of them (read: their nerves) thought, “Oh… no… please… don’t… go…” while holding the exit door open for her. But you know, they didn’t have to tell us that Meghan McCain was leaving the show. They could’ve just gotten a Meghan McCain doppelgänger in the form of a really self-involved animatronic velociraptor in a Whoville wig. But then again, if they did that, we’d all think, “Meghan McCain seems so much calmer these days.
