Former Fox News co-host and daughter of Senator John McCain (AZ-R), Meghan McCain is being floated as the next conservative female voice to take over at ABC's The View.
As reported by The Daily Wire on Monday, the show comprised of insufferable feminists rid themselves of their only saving grace, conservative co-host Jedediah Bila, reportedly due to her tough questioning of guest and twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Soon following the ouster of Bila, CNN reported on Monday that McCain was in the "late stages" of finalizing a deal with ABC to become the newest panelist.
McCain left Fox News' daytime show Outnumbered just last week.
“Meghan has been a valuable part of ‘Outnumbered’ and the Fox News team,” said a statement from Fox. “We’re sad to see her go, but we wish her all the best.”
In a statement about the departure, McCain said, “I’m so thankful to Fox News for the chance to be on ‘Outnumbered,’ but I’m leaving to focus on other things. I have no doubt the show will continue to do well and wish all my friends and colleagues at the network nothing but success.”
McCain, who's always outspoken, is socially liberal, hawkish on foreign policy and falls somewhere on the Right regarding most other domestic/fiscal issues. So while she's not a leftist Feminist Clone by any means, she's not ultra-right-wing, either.
The 32-year-old has appeared on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live, has previously contributed to The Daily Beast and MSNBC and has written two books: Dirty Sexy Politics, a campaign memoir, and America, You Sexy Bitch: A Love Letter to Freedom, which she worked on with comedian Michael Ian Black.
