‘The View’: None Of The Women Are Speaking To ‘Rude’ ‘Outcast’ Meghan McCain
Meghan McCain is not enjoying her time on The View. After starting a feud with just about all of her co-hosts, McCain is officially the outcast of the daytime talk show. Even McCain’s sole ally on the show, Abby Huntsman, has grown tired of her rude behavior. With nobody acknowledging McCain, how much longer will she last?
‘The View’ stars shun Meghan McCain
McCain – a staunch Republican and daughter of decorated former Senator John McCain – has a history of being obnoxious with her The View co-hosts, especially those who do not share her conservative view. But her recent behavior has taken things to a whole new level.
According to Page Six, an inside source claims that Huntsman, who offers another conservative perspective on The View, is no longer on speaking terms with McCain. The two have apparently had a major falling out because of McCain’s abrasive nature.
“They aren’t speaking to each other. It’s been about a month. None of the ladies talk to Meghan now. Abby was the last woman standing. It’s bad. Meghan’s so rude,” the source shared.
Although Huntsman has not confirmed the rumors, her recent exchange with McCain certainly backs them up – especially when you consider how they are supposed to be fighting for the same cause.
During a recent segment, Huntsman got into an argument with McCain over their shared personal experience in politics. Being the daughter of Jon Huntsman Jr., Utah’s former governor, Huntsman did not back down when McCain suggested that her opinion about politicians was off base.
McCain stirs up trouble
Huntsman is hardly the first person McCain has crossed. Inside sources claim that McCain acts very “rude” and “dismissive” to all of her co-stars and even to guests who appear on The View.
Last month, for example, Whoopi Goldberg stopped McCain in her tracks for trying to talk over everybody else.
“Girl! Please stop talking! Please stop talking right now!” Goldberg shared.
Goldberg then slammed McCain for assuming that everyone else is always going to take a position against her. Needless to say, the outburst did not go over well with McCain, who did not seem to get what her co-host was trying to say.
In light of all the drama, fans of the show have officially started a petition on Change.org to get McCain off the series. But producers on The View believe that McCain brings a dynamic element to show and a “strong point of view” — which means she probably isn’t going anywhere.
Elizabeth Warren and McCain butt heads on ‘The View’
As if getting into arguments with her co-hosts is not enough, McCain also has a reputation for butting heads with guests.
Her latest incident happened when The View welcomed Elizabeth Warren to the panel. While Warren was trying to discuss her tax plan with the women, McCain kept trying to interrupt.
But instead of giving into McCain’s antics, Warren ignored her entirely — as did everybody else on the show. McCain looked visibly frustrated over what happened and instead of participating in the conversation started writing in her notebook.
What unfolded with Warren is yet another example of how everyone on The View seems to be ignoring McCain in an effort to keep the conversation moving. We do not know how long that is going to last as something has to give at some point.
McCain has not commented on the reports surrounding her behavior on The View set.
McCain defends Lindsey Graham
Although things are not looking good for McCain, she continues to find herself at odds with her co-hosts. In a recent segment of The View, for example, Goldberg caught McCain in a contradiction.
The drama started when McCain toed the party line and defended Senator Lindsey Graham for not wanting to call witnesses in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial.
McCain’s The View co-hosts argued that Graham was flip-flopping because he demanded the exact opposite when Bill Clinton was being impeached in the winter of 1999.
“It’s the difference between getting the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth,” Graham said.
Goldberg called Graham out for conveniently changing his tone when his party leader was in the hot seat. McCain answered back that it was just a political move and that it doesn’t matter what he said in 1999.
Agreeing to disagree, McCain eventually conceded that Graham has not been fairing well in the polls, especially when he goes against Trump. This could explain why Graham has been changing his tone.
