Why are they so obsessed with her?
Meghan McCain said she doesn’t understand why she’s still being brought up on “The View” two years after she departed the ABC talk show.
“I can’t go a week without something being said about me on the show,” she vented to Michael Malice on Wednesday’s episode of the “Your Welcome” podcast.
“The thing about ‘The View’ is that I didn’t know when I signed my contract with ABC that this is forever, that for the rest of my life I’m going to be bullied, yelled at, abused and brought up for years,” she continued.
“I just didn’t know that when I signed to do this show that I’d have to deal with, like, these crazy old people just yelling about me all the time.”
McCain, who co-hosted on the daytime panel from 2017 to 2021, added that she’s simply trying to “live [her] life” by working on her podcast and upcoming career endeavors while raising her two daughters.
“I go whole swaths of time without thinking about them, like, whole months without thinking about the show or anything,” she said.

“And, apparently, I am just on their minds every day. And it’s pathetic.”
The 39-year-old columnist’s comments came after the “View” co-host Ana Navarro seemingly referenced her on the Dec. 14 episode during a discussion about Hunter Biden’s decision to disregard a congressional subpoena over his foreign business dealings.
“Look, did Hunter Biden influence-peddle on his last name? Yes, he did,” Navarro said.
“So did half of Washington. People sitting at this table did it!”
Meghan, the daughter of late Senator John McCain, immediately assumed Navarro, 52, was talking about her and hit back in a fiery tweet.
“I don’t understand why my former colleagues @TheView @ABC bring me up and slander me on an almost weekly basis. It has been years — move on, I have,” she wrote.
“I have never been accused of a crime in my life and am a patriotic American — I would never and have never ‘influenced peddled’ in my life, let alone with foreign adversaries.”
“Not all politicians children are the same — and I am no Hunter Biden,” she continued.
“All accusations are absurd, defamatory and slanderous. I will be consulting my lawyers regarding what was libeled against me on The View this morning.”
During her appearance on “Your Welcome,” Meghan said the toxicity she felt from her former co-hosts, including Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg and Sunny Hostin, is what led to her exit from the show.
“I thought you were supposed to be a role model and be a[n] avatar of conservative women in America. I thought that’s what I was hired to do,” she explained.
“They want someone who will agree with them and say ‘all Republicans are evil and conservatives are ruining the country,'” she claimed.
She further alleged that the show was “rigged” and that the co-hosts refused to discuss anything that painted President Joe Biden in an unappealing light.
“There would be a fight over whether or not it should even be aired because the hosts didn’t agree on it. And that was always a battle every day,” Meghan recalled.
“And there were some news stories that they just wouldn’t cover because it made people look bad.”
She added, “I don’t think that’s totally ethical.”
