The View: Meghan McCain seems overwhelmed as the show’s most conservative co-host

The View: Meghan McCain seems overwhelmed as the show’s most conservative co-host

For fans of The View, the beginning of every show became familiar a long time ago. After a presenter scrolled through the guests and the day’s agenda, the co-presenters had their presentations. Then you see the ladies coming out, recognize the studio audience and sit down.

Fans can also predict the reactions of each co-host. With Whoopi Goldberg, you usually get a slight smile when it rains applause before “Welcome, welcome, welcome…”. Meanwhile, Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin tend to go with bigger smiles.

As for Meghan McCain, she often finds the show’s most conservative co-host sitting with a frown. After watching McCain clash with her colleagues on the air for years, you can see why she might be unhappy. But Meghan McCain’s reasons go beyond the usual work stress.

The View: Meghan McCain seems overwhelmed as the show’s most conservative co-host

Periodically, there are stories published about Meghan McCain leaving The View, and comments from the show’s producers (along with those from anonymous sources) shed light on backstage culture. For starters, no one denies that Meghan McCain has anger and frustration about his work…

In a July Daily Beast report, we learned that Meghan McCain felt “a caged animal”, “exhausted” and “defeated” at work. The report suggested she wouldn’t make it to the new season. (McCain returned in September).

Still, we had a look behind the scenes that confirmed what we see on the air. As the show’s most conservative voice, Meghan McCain often feels isolated. Meanwhile, her social media activity exposes her to a lot of online “roasting”…

Hilary Estey McLoughlin, senior executive producer at The View, pointed out McCain’s sources of stress. “What’s going on with Meghan… is that she is so passionate, and she feels very strongly about wearing this cloak for the conservative perspective,” McLoughlin told The Daily Beast.

“What she wants to talk about is so important to her – I think this is the part that drains her the most.” McLoughlin also acknowledged that any conservative voice sometimes has a bit of a problem with The View. “It’s the toughest job on the show, for sure,” she said.

  1. Megan you have many supporters! Never stop speaking you’re mind! Why is it when she speaks here opinion it’s a problem “oh I know” it’s because she a conservative like me!!!

  2. I think the best situation they had was in Vegas. I think they should bite the bullet and everyone move back to Vegas. For houses one for each they seem the happiest there and that’s the way it should be. Cody is an ass he just decides one day out of the blue that they’re moving to Flagstaff that’s the way it’s going to be. If I Was one of those sister wives I Would get the other sister wives together and dump Cody. He’s not worth it it was better men out there.

  3. Whoever wrote this article needs to go back and take some English classes or at least grammar classes. I am shocked to find such poor writing by an web writer. The number of errors is horrendous. I expect some errors from general public when writing reviews but from a news source!!?? Unacceptable!

  4. If she Megan can’t handle it move on. I’m also tired hearing about her dad whom I have the utmost respect for being a military man myself. Stop with the temper tantrums.

  5. It is not that she is conservative. It is that she is rude, obnoxious and childish in her behavior at the table. It is that simple. So love her, like her, whatever you like. Her attitude is rotten.

  6. You can Express your opinions but you may not be rude, disrespectful or act as a child. Grow up. Allow others to offer their opinions and try listening, no one knows everything.

  7. I’m surprised Meghan has endured Whoopie’s lack of knowledge and Joy’s negativity this long. Meghan is extremely intelligent (too intelligent for her cohosts) and evidently the producers as well. Meghan is very professionally dressed, well spoken, prepared, and passionate. It would be extremely difficult to work with this panel without loosing her cool. I cringe when Whoopie walks out on National TV with her hideous wardrobe. But then again she is not a professional just a sidekick for the show. Stay strong Mehgan there are still many of us that support your professionalism. The two so-called comedians need to go. Local comedy clubs maybe.

  8. For Sarah WhoopiGoldberg has dressed the same since she started on stage years ago with her One Woman Show. Whoopi is down to earth furthermore they knew how she liked to dress when she was hired. Don’t get it twisted Whoopi is not a stupid or dumb woman by any stretch of the imagination!! If Megan McCain can’t deal with her coworkers or the audience then she is in the wrong place. She is not a baby and she isn’t going to be treated like one either. I get tired of her talking about her father and what she is going through the show is not the place to throw tantrums to get attention!!!
