Meghan McCain walks away from her daytime TV spot on “The View” on ABC.

The TV personality has revealed that she will be leaving the show after nearly four years in Thursday’s episode. The 36-year-old daughter of late Arizona Senator John McCain and Cindy McCain, joined the show as a conservative voice in 2017.

“I’m just going to rip the band-aid off, I’m here to tell all of you, my wonderful co-hosts and home viewers that this will be my last season here on ‘The View’,” McCain says.

She added that she would continue to be on the show until the end of July and that the coronavirus pandemic had “dramatically” changed the way she wanted to live her life.

“It was not an easy decision, it took a lot of thought, counseling and prayer and talking to my family and close friends,” she added.

McCain’s departure may not come as a surprise. In July 2019, it was reported that McCain was leaving the show after the former Fox News co-host repeatedly drew attention to live battles with some of his fellow “View” co-hosts. , Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg.

McCain alluded to his displeasure during a heated exchange with Behar a month earlier, revealing that “It’s not a fun job for me every day … being the sacrificial Republican.”

McCain has often made headlines for his comments on the show.

In March, her exchange with co-hosts on identity politics went viral and she received backlash following her comments about Senator Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill, who said she would not support the President Joe Biden’s undiversified candidates until he nominated more Asian Americans to his Cabinet.

“I think the question Democrats have to come to terms with right now is whether race and gender are more important than qualification,” McCain said. “We are talking about identity politics more important than the qualifications of a job and I think this is an issue in the future that the progressive left is going to have to reconcile.”

“I condemn the reprehensible violence and vitriol that have been targeted against the American-Asian community,” McCain tweeted. “There is no question that Donald Trump’s racist rhetoric has fueled many of these attacks and I apologize for any past comments that have helped this agenda.”

Prior to her stint on “The View,” McCain was co-host of Fox News’ “Outnumbered,” occupying the seat of former Fox News co-host Jedediah Bila – who left the cable news network in May.
