's departure from "The View
" after four seasons means the internet may have lost one of its most divisive figures.
The conservative co-host announced on Thursday that she will leave the show at the end of the current season to spend more time with her
husband and their baby daughter.
McCain's time on "The View" will be remembered for the numerous times she trended on Twitter
for eye-roll-inducing moments like this:
When she petulantly asked whether having only one Asian American
co-host on “The View” since 1997 meant that “one of us should be leaving because there isn’t enough representation
,” Twitter users reminded the daughter of Sen. John McCain
that “The View” has featured more descendants of famous people
than people of Asian descent.
When she criticized COVID-19 vaccine
messaging, she complained self-righteously: "the fact that I, Meghan McCain, co-host of 'The View,' don't know when or how I will be able to get a vaccine because the rollout for my age range and my health
is so nebulous, I have no idea when and how I get it."
When she claimed that Donald Trump Jr
. was a "beloved figure," she made her co-hosts do a double-take.
When she tweeted that her New York
neighborhood was a "war zone," a neighbor replied, "We live in the same building, and I just walked outside. It's fine
When she was told not to "scream" at guest co-host Ana Navarro, she walked off set.
She ruined "Game of Thrones
" at the time.
The segment in which the senator's daughter unironically referred to former "Full House
" star and college admissions
cheater Lori Loughlin as "the face of everything, culturally, we hate about white privilege
