Bad Co-Host

In terms of hazards, the show with the largest body count is probably The View.  In her endless audible book Bad Republican (there are five hours I’ll never get back), Meghan McCain talks about the toxic work environment and blames many people for troubled tenure – many people except herself.  She says Joy Behar made her cry, vomit, and lactate simultaneously!  Now, look, Joy Behar is a powerful woman.  But can she cause milk to flow?  If true, I don’t believe anyone would be prouder than Joy herself.  McCain says their relationship was never resolved after she returned from maternity leave and teased Joy by saying, “Admit it – you missed me, you missed fighting with me”, to which Joy bluntly responded, “I did not – I did not miss you.  Zero.”  She had a similar fall-out after Whoopi Goldberg chastized her with the now-infamous, “Girl, please stop talking.  Please stop talking right now.”  But could Whoopi instigate creation of a dairy product?  I think not.

More than anything, one is struck by Meghan’s hypocrisy.  When Saturday Night Live spoofed The View, Meghan would repost the clips.  In 2019, she Tweeted, “I’m not supposed to be on twitter because of hiatus BUT this sketch is hilarious, and being parodied by @SNL is a huge pop culture honor. – Signed, your old intern and ‘the princess of Arizona’.”  In the book, McCain claims the sketches made her feel like “I was the laughing stock of the country.”  It’s as if Meghan likes having it both ways – as do I, but enough about my sex life.  McCain would regularly lambast guests on The View who wrote tell-alls.  Andy Cohen asked if she felt hypocritical by writing her own tell-all.  “No,” was her succinct answer.
