Meghan McCain leaving The View latest: Host blasts media for covering women cohosts with 'deep misogyny and sexism'

WHILE announcing her resignation from The View yesterday, Meghan McCain blasted the media for covering the show with "misogyny and sexism."

At the end of her announcement, she noted "The media needs to do a better job of covering the women on this show."

"We are covered with deep misogyny and sexism by the media. If five men were doing what we do every day, I really do believe that we'd probably have a Pulitzer Prize."

The host will give up her four-season stint on the daytime talk show at the end of July to spend more time with her husband and daughter in Washington DC.

The 36-year-old still had two years remaining on her contract.

    MEGHAN MCCAIN SLAMMED OLYMPIAN PROTESTING JUST DAYS AGO

    Just days before Meghan announced her departure from The View (leaving some wondering if she was actually fired), the conservative slammed an Olympic athlete for protesting.

    Meghan said: "The problem I have is this woman is doing this internationally.

    "And if anyone just saw Vladimir Putin’s recent speech when he met with President Biden, he’s using the propaganda that America is an irredeemable cr**hole against us, saying ‘You think your country is so great over there?' You don’t even treat your people correctly."

    She recalled a story about her father being held in Vietnam as a prisoner of war.

    Then she added: “So, excuse me if I don’t think some of these athletes are representing America in the same way.”

    "We all know Meghan McCain was fired from The View right? They just allowing her RACIST ASS to have some dignity!" another said.

      MEGHAN AND WHOOPI CLASHED

      Despite her longevity on the show, the politician's daughter has been clashing with her co-hosts of late.

      Last month, Whoopi Goldberg slammed Meghan for saying President Biden "embarrassed himself" while meeting Russia's Vladimir Putin.

      The two ladies got into a heated debate after the Arizona native claimed Biden's turning down of a CNN reporter's question was "100 percent Trumpy."

      "The thing that I never saw Trump do was apologize to anybody," Whoopi shot back, leading Meghan to interrupt: "With all due respect, I don't care if he's apologizing, he just embarrassed him."

      "I don't care if you don't care, just hear what I'm saying," Whoopi complained while Meghan interjected: "I don't care if you don't care that I don't care."

      "Well then good Meghan," the 65-year-old replied, adding: "Then you can be how you always are."

      "You'll be how you always are," Meghan finished.

      MEGHAN 'RIPPED OFF BANDAID' ON DEPARTURE

      McCain made the announcement at the beginning of Thursday morning's show, telling viewers "I'm just going to rip the bandaid off."

      "This was not an easy decision, it took a lot of thought and counsel and prayer and talking to my family," she said.

      McCain called her co-stars – Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin and Sara Haines – the "four most talented women on television" and the "best in the business."

      However, while concluding her announcement, she took a swipe at the renowned fights that McCain had with the hosts.
