Meghan McCain's Meghan McCain-iest Moments from The View

It’s been about a year and a half since Meghan McCain joined The View as one of its five regular hosts, and in that short time she has already managed to gift us with many moments that left us wondering, “What the hell is Meghan McCain thinking?”

From her declaration that she listens to “filthy music” all the time, to the moment she compared herself to Pete Davidson, to asserting that she would still say the words “gun” and “jackass” on national television (so brave)—I am eating up all of her lukewarm takes.


And after all that, the real treat is still her many, many squabbles with co-host Joy Behar—over whether or not a large chunk of The View’s audience is capable of racism, the right way to honor former President George H. W. Bush, and most recently, Amy Klobuchar’s presidential run.

Watch the video for those and more of the moments when Meghan McCain left me with an important question: “Huh?”

One of the most aggressively irrelevant people I’ve ever met. When she “wrote” a book, she came to speak at the monthly meeting of the publisher I used to work for. Staff asked her what her goals were, what her ambitions were, whether she planned to follow in her father’s footsteps and run for office. She sat there, twirling her hair like a cartoon, and waved them all off and said something to the effect of “I don’t really want to do anything.” Eight years later, she’s living her dream of being completely pointless.
