Meghan McCain facing petition to have 'The View' replace her

Meghan McCain facing petition to have 'The View' replace her

A petition to get Meghan McCain removed from “The View” that was started nearly two years ago has had a recent spike in signatures, hitting a total of more than 2,000 supporters as of Wednesday morning.

The petition’s author wants ABC to replace McCain with either Ana Navarro, a former aide to Jeb Bush and John McCain (Meghan McCain's late father), or Jedidiah Bila, a  "Fox & Friends" weekend host who later became a co-host of "The View" until leaving the program in 2017.

Some of the petition’s supporters say McCain has been “disrespectful,” a “loud mouth” and “petulant" on the program.

McCain joined the morning talk show in 2017 and has had several on-air blowups with her more liberal co-hosts.

During an argument over impeachment last month, co-host Whoopi Goldberg told McCain to “stop talking.”

Goldberg later explained that things sometimes get “heated” on the show and that all of the co-hosts are “passionate.”

McCain echoed that the women “fight like we’re family.”
