Whoopi takes jab at Meghan McCain, says ‘The View’ ‘calmer’ now: ‘Nobody wants to be tired every day’

At the premiere of her movie “Till” on Saturday, Whoopi Goldberg bragged about how much “calmer” it has been on “The View” since Republican co-host Meghan McCain left.

While discussing the topic with the New York Post, Goldberg admitted that it is “better” without McCain at the table.

“It’s calmer because nobody wants to be that tired every day,” Goldberg said. “We’ve always had disagreements and stuff, but this one was a little bit different. I think [the show], it’s better. I feel it’s better, but I’m still tired!”

She maintained that despite the sparks flying during the show, none of the hard feelings ever spilled out after the cameras were off.

“You do what you do, and you go home and do what you love to do. And hopefully, everybody is now happier.”

It was no secret that Goldberg and her fellow liberal co-host Joy Behar had nothing but disdain for McCain despite how often she agreed with the other women at the table. It all came to a head when McCain joked about Behar missing her while she was on maternity leave. Behar not only refused to play along and show any affection for McCain, but she became outright irritable at the very suggestion.

“You missed me so much when I was on maternity leave. You missed me so much. You missed fighting with me,” McCain chuckled.

“I did not. I did not miss you. Zero,” Behar replied flatly.

The Republican recalls this as the moment she realized she couldn’t remain on the show.

Goldberg even recounted that her daughter would call her to say that she made strange faces while McCain was talking.

“My daughter would say to me, ‘I can see your face!’ [And I would say], ‘OK, I’ll be better.'”

McCain admits that Goldberg’s influence was enough to create a “stifling” atmosphere if the actress decided to turn on you. And while she felt supported by Goldberg when she initially joined the show, over the years that support turned to hostility.

“The thing about Whoopi, though, is that she yields so much power in culture and television, and once she turns on you, it can create unfathomable tension at the table. I found her open disdain for me more and more difficult to manage as the years went on and it became more frequent,” she wrote in “Bad Republican”, her memoir.

“Occasionally, if the show’s political discourse veered into territory that she found disagreeable, Whoopi would cut me off, sometimes harshly.”
