Report: Meghan McCain May Exit 'The View'

According to Meghan McCain's former employer, The Daily Beast, she is seriously considering walking away from her job as McCain family ambassador panelist on The View. According the the source:

  • Meghan is considering not renewing her contract for the new season starting in September

  • She apparently feels emotionally drained, angry, isolated and “like a caged animal”

  • The Daily Mail has covered her crying fits, manic behaviour and tantrums throughout the two years she's been on the show

  • A source (OP's guess is McCain bff Ramin Setoodeh, who used to work with Meghan at the Beast, wrote an entire book about The View that barely included her, and was at her wedding, Denise) says that the "emotional toll isn't worth it" and she will find another job, where she can relentlessly talk about her father™

  • Meghan declined an interview, but Senior Executive producer of The View Hilary Estey McLoughlin is quoted saying "I think she does want to be there. I think she wants to be on the show. She realizes it’s a very good platform for her and we love having her there. I feel like she will come back.”

  • Her father™ apparently "raised her like a guy" (no mention of her mother's involvement in raising her)

  • Meghan tried to get veteran View makeup artist Karen Dupiche fired for 'liking' a montage of Meghan talking over Joy

  • A source alleges that Sunny Hostin talked to them about Meghan on two separate occasions, to which they told Meghan

  • Sunny apparently said: "Meghan’s not doing well. She doesn’t talk to anyone… She can’t handle the pressure… She’s condescending about her grieving for her father… Meghan’s not handling this well.”

  • Sunny's publicist answered this allegation with: “Sunny and Meghan are colleagues. Sunny says what she needs to say on The View and refuses to take part in gossip. She declines the invitation to be dragged into the mud. As a former Federal prosecutor and an Emmy-winning journalist, it’s beneath her.”

  • The source goes on to highlight more Meghan drama from throughout the past few years
