Meghan McCain is going to end her stint at ABC's hit show 'The View'. McCain has resigned resignation from 'The View'. It took no time for the news to go viral and for social media users to express their excitement, especially for McCain's fellow hosts on the show.

The conservative host has reportedly taken the decision after four seasons, with two years remaining on her contract. She joined the show in 2017.

Even while taking a jibe at them, Meghan McCain praised her co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sara Haines, Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro as the 'most talented in the business'. She added: "If you guys want to fight a little bit more, we've got four more weeks".

McCain had joined 'The View' back in October 2017. The daughter of late Senator John McCain quickly became a resonating force of the Republican voice in the media. Before she joined the show, she wrote as a columnist for the publication The Daily Beast, was also a Fox News host and an MSNBC contributor.

In 2013, McCain launched a docuseries titled 'Raising McCain' in which cameras followed her around the country covering current events and topics, from feminism to bullying. After that, she went on to host the late-night news program 'TakePart Live' on Pivot TV.

In 2008, she also became a New York Times best-selling author for her first book 'My Dad, John McCain'. Daily Mail says that at the time of publication, ABC and McCain had not responded to the publication's request for comment.

Despite her longevity on the show, the politician's daughter has been clashing with her co-hosts of late. Last month, Whoopi Goldberg slammed Meghan for saying President Biden "embarrassed himself" while meeting Russia's Vladimir Putin. 

The two got into a heated debate after the Arizona native claimed Biden's turning down of a CNN reporter's question was "100 percent Trumpy." "The thing that I never saw Trump do was apologize to anybody," Whoopi Goldberg shot back, leading Meghan to interrupt: "With all due respect, I don't care if he's apologizing, he just embarrassed him."

"I don't care if you don't care, just hear what I'm saying," Whoopi complained while Meghan interjected: "I don't care if you don't care that I don't care." McCain also stormed out of a meeting with ABC executives saying she felt "attacked".

'Bye-bye, snowflake'

On social media, many are excited about the conservative host's reported exit. "The Princess of Self Entitlement is giving up her throne!" one user tweeted. Along similar lines, another user took a jab, "Oh no! What job will she get now based upon her dad’s name and reputation?!!"



"It's about time..." one tweeted, adding, "McCain’s gun lobby talking points were dangerous disinformation. Hopefully her exit will allow The View hosts to discuss gun violence more often and in a data-driven way - for example, talking about the importance of secure storage could save countless lives given their audience."


Others still mocked her hair and fashion on the show. "Do my you think it's because they refused to give her a different hair stylist? I was living for those passive aggressive styles." Another user took a jab at McCain's hair on the show, "Meghan McCain is leaving The View. Let’s all give a moment of silence to the worst hair on television."



On the other hand, many are simply happy for McCain's fellow host Whoopi Goldberg. "Lmao. Meghan McCain is leaving The View. Whoopi Goldberg is having Belgian waffles and mimosas for breakfast today. #TheView" one user tweeted. "Meghan McCain is reportedly quitting her job at The View. I'm not surprised, but I'm happy for Whoopi & Joy. Those poor women were about to have permanent nerve damage from all the eye rolling they did anytime Meghan opened her mouth. Bye bye snowflake!" another user added.



Some others predicted her future going forward. "I give it an hour before Meghan McCain’s been hired by Fox News," one tweeted.
