Who could have seen this coming?
Conservative millennial and famous for being Sen. John McCain’s daughter, Meghan McCain, is reportedly in some hot water with her co-hosts at “The View” and in particular, the ringleader of the gal chat show, Whoopi Goldberg.
According to RawStory…
Conservative commentator Meghan McCain, co-host of The View, has recently taken time off from the show. And the other hosts, producers, and viewers are happier without her there, reports the Daily Mail.
McCain’s absence has reportedly pleased Whoopi Goldberg, who is reportedly tired of McCain’s blow-ups and feuding with host Joy Behar.
“Whoopi is at her breaking point with Meghan. She’s been trying to hang in there, especially keep the peace with Meghan and Joy, but we all know she’s about to break,” a source told DailyMail.com.
You don’t say?
Also in the story are reports that Meggy Mac is hard on the staff in the background of the show. Now, this could all be speculation but with the recent absences on the show of both Meghan and Joy and the reports of those two titans butting heads, this story has a lil gravitas to it.
I would have never thought that while Donald Trump is President anyone would ever challenge Meghan on the show in front or behind the camera. Her attacks on the President both during the funeral of her Dad and after should have bought her a free pass to act however she pleases for the duration of Trumps Presidency.
However, if McCain is pissing off Hollywood veteran and liberal comedienne icon Whoopi the youngin might have her days numbered on the show.
Now I can already hear some of you saying WHY DOES THIS MATTER? Well, this is why.
The left is all in for defeating Donald Trump in 2020 and willing to do it at all costs. Meghan Mccain has been riding off the coattails of her Dad for years and has thus developed a persona also that she tells it like it is. This benefits the left greatly and gives rise to the narrative that Trump is on shaky grounds with GOP’ers like McCain.
If they are willing to bounce her to the curb, they must REALLY hate her or are pretty confident that they don’t need her on the bubble gum chat show to rip on the Donald. Plus, they already have another token conservative in Abby Huntsman to use as a punching bag.
Whatever the case may be, there might be life after “The View” but not with the hefty paycheck and platform. Will that be the end of….. insightful commentary from a “conservative” millennial?
I can’t even imagine.
