Meghan McCain made a shocking prediction on Friday’s episode of the ABC talk show “The View,” when she predicted that Donald Trump will replace Vice President Mike Pence with a woman if current Democratic front-runner Joe Biden chooses a female running mate.
When the panel was speculating as to who Biden would choose as a running mate, McCain predicted that Trump would ditch Pence for former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley if Biden picks a woman.
“I still think, though, that if he chooses a woman, then Trump is going to kick Pence out and put in Nikki Haley. Because I think they’ll go toe for toe and they’re going to be like, ‘You want to identity politics me? I’ll identity politics you.’ And I just…I think they’re gangster,” McCain said.
The notoriously liberal Joy Behar surprised everyone when she said that Pence has been “starting to look good” lately.
“So I don’t know if the party would like that, to take Pence out,” she said.
McCain, however, disagreed.
“I think they would. They need the win,” she said, emphasizing to Behar incredulously, “It’s amazing you’re such a Mike Pence fan.”
Behar responded by saying that while she is not a fan of the Republican Party, compared to Trump, Pence “seems like he’s in MENSA.”
The liberal co-hosts of “The View” all thought Biden should pick a woman, with Whoopi Goldberg suggesting he pick Hillary Clinton, saying that she would be “brilliant.”

Speculation has run rampant for months that Trump would drop Pence for Haley. The president denied this back in November, saying at the time that he is behind Pence “100 percent.”
“Mike Pence — I know I’ve seen this rumor that keeps popping up, and Nikki would be great, but Mike Pence has done a phenomenal job as vice president,” Trump said. “He’s our guy, he’s my friend, and look, we have a great team.”
Things are certainly going to get interesting once Biden picks his running mate, assuming he secures the nomination. Dropping Pence would be a risky move for Trump, but the president has always been unafraid to take risks when it comes to helping our country. If dropping Pence for a woman is what it takes to save America from the clutches of Democrats, than that’s exactly what we can expect Trump to do.
