Meghan McCain has been a co-host for 4 seasons and has recently announced her departure from the show. She gained attention in 2007 for her blog, McCain Blogette.
Regarding her exit from the show, she told the viewers, “This was not an easy decision, It took a lot of thought and counsel and prayer, and talking to my family and my close friends, and, you know, look — COVID has changed the world for all of us, and it changed the way, at least for me, the way I am looking at life, the way I’m living my life, the way I want my life to look like.”
Here is how some co-stars of the show wished her well for the future.
Joy Behar, an American comedian, and actress said, “You and I have had our disagreements, we’ve had our fights, we also had some drinking moments which were rather fun and interesting. I have to say that what we have in common — as do all of us here — is that we’re on a show where we stick our necks out, we take the blowback. We take a lot of hits on this show, and we stick to our points of view. You have done that brilliantly for four years.”
She further added, “I hope that you can say that I did the same thing. I really, really appreciated the fact that you were a formidable opponent in many ways, and that you spoke your mind — and you’re no snowflake, missy.”
Whoopi Goldberg said, “It’s been quite wonderful to sit across from you. Your dad was very smart. He wanted you to be here with us because I think he thought we could help toughen you up for what was coming, which was, you know, this wonderful baby you were going to have and his departure. So it was an honor when he said, ‘Please take my child.'”
Sunny Hostin said, “He also told me to take it easy on Meghan, that I would learn to love her and understand her, and that she would be a pain in the a–, and he was right about all those things. Meghan and I probably talk every day, all the time after the show, we text during the show, and I’ll miss those conversations. I think you have a really important point of view and it’s just been wonderful.”
Sara Haines said, “It’s a full circle moment to know so much of your dad’s words brought you here and yet your calling for your daughter and your family is what takes you away. I think it’s beautiful, it speaks to the paradigm shift that is the world now on the heels of a 2020, and it has been an honor to sit here with you. You are a tough… That’s all I can say on daytime TV.”
Goldberg talked about the show and said, “The one thing that we can say about this show: When you leave here, you can take on anything, because everything possible has been fired at you,”
He then told McCain, “So when you leave here, you’re a better person, better woman, better mother, better friend.”
To which she replied, “We’ve got a month together. Let’s make the most of it.”
