Meghan McCain has worked for ABC News, Fox News, and MSNBC, so she is a veteran of the television screen. Meghan quit ABC, claiming that she left due to Whoopi Goldberg‘s and others’ behavior against her. Meghan recently recalled Joy Behar’s comment that caused her to really leave “The View.”
Meghan said that Joy Behar was the ultimate catalyst for her decision to leave “The View.” On “The Commentary Magazine Podcast” on Thursday, the former morning show co-host stated that Behar’s reaction to her return from maternity leave in January 2021 after giving birth to her daughter, Liberty, made her realize the job was not worth it.
“I finally went back to the show, and the day I went back to the show, Joy Behar said on air, ‘Nobody missed you, we didn’t miss you, you shouldn’t have come back.'”
“And I just … I started hysterically crying. Sorry gentlemen, I know, I started lactating on air, and I started crying.”
McCain stated that she returned to her office and puked before calling her brother, who persuaded her to quit the ABC talk show.
“I didn’t feel supported when I had my baby, and I didn’t feel supported coming back, and that was ultimately it. That was why I left!”
Since leaving in July 2021, the conservative personality has been vocal about her dissatisfaction with the show, particularly with Behar and Whoopi Goldberg. “The thing about Whoopi, though, is that she yields so much power in culture and television, and once she turns on you, it can create unfathomable tension at the table,” McCain said in her audio memoir, “Bad Republican.”
“I found her open disdain for me more and more difficult to manage as the years went on and it became more frequent. Occasionally, if the show’s political discourse veered into territory that she found disagreeable, Whoopi would cut me off, sometimes harshly.”
Alyssa Farah Griffin and Ana Navarro were McCain’s replacements on “The View,” so the show carried on. McCain will also keep on with her own path in life. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
