The notorious daytime talk show ‘The View’ is now under fire for its difficulty in finding a conservative co-host to replace former host Megan McCain.
As The Daily Wire reports:
ABC’s “The View” was mocked on Monday following a report that the show can’t find a Republican host who fits a very narrow set of criteria that the show wants.
Politico reported that the show’s four leftist co-hosts were “tired of the rotating cast of Republican guest hosts” after rotating several following Meghan McCain leaving the show back in August.
“Sources close to the show said that the search has stalled as executives struggle to find a conservative cast-member who checks all the right boxes,” the report said. “They will not consider a Republican who is a denier of the 2020 election results, embraced the January 6 riots, or is seen as flirting too heavily with fringe conspiracy theories or the MAGA wing of the GOP. But at the same time, the host must have credibility with mainstream Republicans, many of whom still support Donald Trump.”
A former staffer for the show said that the show was “really looking for a unicorn” and that they wanted ” someone who is going to fight — but not too hard, because they don’t want it to be ugly and bickering.”
Conservatives on social media quickly blasted the show for the hostile environment it poses to conservative women:
The View wouldn’t dare have @RealCandaceO on for even one episode

The View can't find a replacement for Meghan McCain, why don't they just cancel the show? No one will mind.
