Despite Whoopi’s call back in december 2019, it seems that John McCain’s daughter is still won’t stop talking.
In fact she is talking so many that by a new interview with Variety, she finally decided to release a new thesis that largely details her time as co-host of View, including the moments that helped seal his decision to say goodbye once and for all. (A decision that a large chunk of viewers also more than agree with, by the way. But let’s move on.)
Having said that, it’s not just any old memory, no! Friends, it’s an AUDIO memory. Which means, what? Yeah, you guessed it! Meghan McCain will speak EVEN MORE as she recounts her trials and tribulations. (Whoop, my darling, I am so sorry. I am really sorry. She didn’t listen to you then, and she doesn’t listen to you now.)
During a conversation with Ramin Setoodeh (who introduced himself as a friend of McCain and his former editor, which, I mean – conflicts of interest, a lot?), The former co- host called her old workplace a “toxic work environment.” , Explain :
You can watch the show and see that it is off-balance, disorganized, and rowdy. For me personally, it was extremely isolating because of my political ideology. I was the only curator of the series. In the third year, they ended up hiring a producer for me who was also a curator. I have to put the context. I worked on the show as the sole conservative during the Trump years. I felt like a lot of people got mad at the administration because I was the only person in the building who was Republican. I felt like I was too far apart from Trump, despite the fact that everyone who worked on the show saw firsthand how President Trump and his family emotionally subjected me. . I feel like I have post-traumatic stress from having to quarrel with the president when my father was dying and then having to quarrel with the president after he died. And I haven’t fully healed.
In a exclusive extract provided to Variety from his forthcoming memoirs, titled Bad republican, she clarifies: “During my four years there, I was the target of a lot of shadows – too many to even begin to tell – and I also knew a hostility more toxic, direct and deliberate. “
* Insert a roll emoji here * Of course, Jan.
Later in the snippet, John McCain’s daughter also pointed out the exact moment she felt “open disdain” from co-host Whoopi Goldberg and how after the incident “Girl, if you please stop talking “live on air, it” left a scar on their relationship “from that point on.
So wait, let me get it right: because you did what you normally do, which is take everything as a personal affront and an attack – even though in this specific case Whoopi was speaking to you and Hostin – did that leave a permanent bitter taste in your mouth? Even though there have been many times in your four years on the show that no doubt made us want to choke on the way you treated and talked to (and more) everyone?
Give me a break, Jan.
In addition, Mayo McCain also detailed the time Joy told her she hadn’t missed her on her return from maternity leave, noting that it was this moment, coupled with her postpartum anxiety, that solidified her decision to walk away from the office and never return.
By the extract:
Until then, it hadn’t even occurred to me that I hadn’t missed Joy. She had texted me asking to see a photo of Liberty’s baby, and she had seemed happy to me. We had a friendly chat. I believed that despite all our differences, deep down we had a mutual understanding of respect for each other. When we broke up for an ad, I burst into tears. Not just like tears, uncontrollable sobs. I was super hormonal and deeply hurt.
“If you didn’t want me to come back, I wouldn’t have come back!” I say to the producer in my headset. I told him that he might need to take my camera off for a minute because I wasn’t sure I could pull myself together in time to start interviewing people again. I felt my breasts start to sink from lactation. I was embarrassed and shaking. I felt like I wasn’t in control of my body. I didn’t want millions of viewers to see this. After sobbing for what felt like an eternity, I wiped my face, took deep breaths, and checked that my nipples were out of camera range. I tried to smile and concentrate as the show resumed.
She added: “After giving birth, I didn’t feel like myself anymore. I felt extremely vulnerable. Joy seemed to sense this vulnerability like a shark smells blood in water, and she followed. Why was it worth it for her? I’ll never know. But, too bad for working mothers who care about each other.
Of course, Mascarpone McCain. Blame it on the non-solidarity of working mothers and not on your extremely antagonistic personality. I moved on.
This is usually the part where I include blurb on where you can pre-order John McCain’s daughter memoir, but let’s face it: I think we’ve all read and heard enough.
