When Meghan McCain departed “The View,” she offered a lecture on how everyone needed to treat the show’s hosts with more respect.
Her comments were not received well by many conservatives who had defended her on the show.
Now McCain is taking her own shots, even at herself, showing a far departure from the olive branch that she once extended.
These days, memoirs tend to be about dropping dimes on others, but McCain does not exempt herself from criticism.
While I have never been a fan of Meghan or her father, I respect the honesty in her turning the lens inward to expose herself and what led to some of her assertions.
What I found even more interesting, however, was the turnabout regarding her co-hosts on “The View.”
We were told, at most times, the debate on the show was healthy, but most of us never actually believed it.
I never actually watched a live episode but just from the snippets online, it was clear there was animosity, and that is being kind, on the set.
As the lone conservative, McCain often found herself under attack by everyone on the panel.
She described the environment as “toxic, direct and purposeful hostility.”
The key dispensers of that toxic hostility were Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar.
She stated it was “as if I had become an avatar for everything they hated about the president,” and the environment “grew meaner and less forgiving.”
She added, “Whoopi and Joy saw front and center the emotional trauma I had experienced from President Trump’s attacks on my family.”
On Goldberg, she stated, “Once she turns on you, it can create unfathomable tension at the table.”
She also pointed out to some casual ribbing that turned sour very quickly after her maternity leave.
After telling Behar that she knew Behar missed her on-air arguments with McCain, Behar shot right back, very seriously, “I did not. I did not miss you. Zero.”
McCain stated, “I felt like I’d been slapped.”
It is yet another very telling story of how liberals treat people who do not fall in line with their beliefs.
You either do what they say, or you get ostracized, period. There is no reasonable conversation anymore.
It will be very interesting to see how these toxic women respond to the allegations made by McCain.
My guess is that there will be no olive branch, only more razor-sharp tongues coming after her.
