Meghan McCain May Not Renew Her ‘View’ Contract: Report

Who didn't know this particular chat show was not the perfect fit for the outspoken daughter of John McCain?

Megan McCain (shown above right, beside Joy Behar) reportedly is thinking about leaving the ABC daytime talk show, “The View.”

The Daily Beast is reporting that McCain is feeling burned out, exhausted, defeated — and like a caged animal.

If this opinion writer were in her shoes, I would feel mentally and emotionally exhausted after having to work beside people who have little or no common sense.

No conservative stays on that daytime news talk show for long, in my view, due to the constant “ganging up” of progressive and socialist voices.

Let me also say today’s news isn’t coming from Meghan McCain’s mouth but from an anonymous source close to her who supposedly knows what she is going through.

The news is suspect to me, too, because it’s coming at a time when McCain’s contract is up for renewal — so she could be posturing for bigger money.

Let’s face it: Who didn’t know that the television show wasn’t an excellent fit for her, even though she isn’t a conservative? She aligns herself more with her colleagues there than with real Republicans in the first place, so the notion she’s feeling like a “caged animal” is petulant, to me.

When she speaks about President Donald Trump and makes jokes about him on that show, the universe is grand and she gets to say whatever she wants. But when she brushes back against some of the liberal agenda, they slap her down.

It’s always been like that for conservatives, Meghan. What planet are you on?

“It’s getting to the point where it’s not worth the emotional toll every week,” another close source told The Daily Beast.

McCain doesn’t listen to others. She talks so loud and she attacks the guests. It has gotten worse since her dad died.

The Daily Beast also noted that Hilary Estey McLoughlin, executive producer of “The View,” doesn’t believe the rumors.

McLoughlin allegedly said she believes Meghan McCain is fine and happy to be on the show.

Said McLoughlin, “She realizes it’s a very good platform for her and we love having her there. I feel like she will come back.”

“What is so amazing about having Meghan on the show,” she added, “is she literally has inside-knowledge sources, and she grew up in the world of politics, and that has been such an asset to our show.”

One of the major problems for McCain on the show is Sunny Hostin — who, in my opinion, could be a problem for anyone. Hostin appears to know very little about a lot of things. She is far-Left and doesn’t subscribe to any other way of thinking, just like Joy Behar.

But with Hostin, that seems to have hit a nerve with McCain.

Hostin is reportedly speaking negatively behind McCain’s back to McCain’s friends regarding her anti-social behavior.

It seems to be all drama.

Nobody told Meghan McCain to go on that show, and when she did, we all knew she wouldn’t be there long. She’s getting paid well for what Americans do and never see a dime for — offering shared opinions — so don’t expect sympathy here for the negative emotions she might be experiencing.
