Conservative pundit Meghan McCain officially will take a seat at The View's table in the near future, our sister site Variety reports. The 32-year-old announced her exit from Fox News' "Outnumbered", which she had co-hosted since November, on September 15, stating that she was "leaving to focus on other things". Like her father, she often deviates from the GOP line on issues, including same-sex marriage and climate change. While ABC refused to comment, an insider claims that the decision to tap McCain to join the show is because the ABC show needs a stronger conservative voice following Elisabeth Hasselbeck's exit back in 2013. Sherri Shepherd departed a few months later and then Rosie O'Donnell returned for one season, which was followed by a slew of brief stints by Nicolle Wallace, Rosie Perez, Raven Symone, Michelle Collins, Candace Cameron Bure, and most recently, Bila. At that time, "The View" frequently made headlines for in-show fighting between co-hosts over different political views. Bila asked the former presidential candidate a tough question and referred to her as "tone deaf", inspiring conspiracy theories that ABC had fired the host over the exchange.
