On Monday, Jedediah Bila announced that she was leaving “The View,” where she had served as the program’s conservative panelist and according to a source, this sudden departure may have something to do with Hillary Clinton.. A reason for her departure was not given, but a note sent to show staff said Bila “has new opportunities on the horizon, including her new book.”
Clinton was on the show last Wednesday promoting her book “What Happened,” with conservative Bila calling her “tone deaf” and asking the former presidential candidate a tough question. Bila was signed on for the full season but “she left on her own accord”.
According to reports, Meghan McCain is in talks to join the show. McCain, who did not immediately respond to a request for comment, announced last week that she was leaving Fox News. The source said they “wouldn’t be surprised” if McCain was on the short list, and added the network has been looking for conservative voices since Candace Cameron Bure left the show late last year.
McCain’s father, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), is currently battling brain cancer. She said in a July statement her father has remained “confident and calm” since his diagnosis.
“The cruelest enemy could not break him. The aggression of political life could not bend him. So he is meeting this challenge as he has every other,” she wrote.
“Cancer may afflict him in many ways: but it will not make him surrender. Nothing ever has.”
“The View” is a daytime show that features a roundtable of hosts who discuss the news of the day from various political perspectives.
