Meghan McCain Wants ‘View’ Casting Approval – EXCLUSIVE

Now that Abby Huntsman is out at ‘The View,’ Meghan McCain wants approval of who is going to replace Abby, to make sure that Meghan has at least one ally on the show.

“Meghan wants to make sure that she isn’t the only strong conservative voice at the table. With Abby out she has to take on liberals, Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg, by herself five times a week. A little help would be great and make the battle much fairer. Meghan wants someone that shares a similar view to herself, so that she isn’t totally ganged up on. All she is asking is to give her approval before any final offer is made,” sources tell STRAIGHT SHUTER.

However, not everyone at the show is buying this argument. “The only reason Meghan wants approval on the new hosts is to make sure no-one is hired that will outshine her. It has nothing to do with being liberal or conservative, but rather everything to do with Meghan wanting to be the star at the table. The last thing Meghan wants is Megyn Kelly joining the show and outshining her.”
