Recently, there have been several controversies surrounding the show, with Goldberg receiving widespread criticism due to her assertion that the Holocaust was “not about race”, which eventually led to her two-week suspension. Also, her remarks on abortion like "He gave us freedom of choice" and ''He made us smart enough to know when it wasn't going to work for us" received a lot of backlash from viewers.

Therefore, the team has decided to bring in fan favorites Navarro and Farah Griffin to the host panel. Though Navarro has inked the agreement to be a permanent co-host, she will continue to work in her role as a political commentator on CNN and Telemundo. The same is the case with Farah Griffin who will also be continuing her role as a political commentator on CNN.
