In 1997, legendary news anchor Barbara Walters created what would become one of the most successful daytime talk shows of all time — The View. The View starred a number of notable women talking about things like religion, politics, and pop culture. During the 26 years The View has been on ABC, it has featured many notable hosts, including Walters, Rosie O’Donnell, Raven-SymonĂ©, and Jenny McCarthy.

In 2017, conservative political commentator Meghan McCain joined the show as a full-time host after being a guest host several times. McCain is also the daughter of former Arizona Senator, John McCain. Ms. McCain was on the show for four years and, during that time, frequently clashed with the more liberal hosts like Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar.

McCain left The View in 2021, but it seems that her former cohosts have not forgotten her, and she has not forgotten them.

Nearly three weeks ago, View host Ana Navarro said that some previous hosts may have used their family names and leverage to get spots on the show. While she did not name McCain, it was clear to many — including McCain —  that that is who she meant. And the former cohost did not appreciate what was said about her.

On December 14, McCain shot off a furious tweet, targeting her former cohosts. She even went so far as to threaten to sue them.

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.

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.

All accusations are absurd, defamatory and slanderous.

I will be consulting my lawyers regarding what was libeled against me on The View this morning.

Later, on a podcast — Your Welcome with Michael Malice — McCain called her former coworkers “pathetic.”

 “I just didn’t know that when I signed to do this show that I have to deal with these crazy old people just yelling about me all of the time. I go whole swaths of time without thinking about them, like whole months without thinking about the show or anything.”

“And, apparently, I am just on their minds every day. And it’s pathetic.”

The View is currently being hosted by Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, Sara Haines, Ana Navarro, and Alyssa Farah Griffin.
