The View to hire a new conservative co-host 'by August' after fans push for Whoopi Goldberg to be FIRED | The Sun

THE VIEW is about to get a bit more crowded, after word that the talk show is preparing to announce a new, conservative combatant for the liberal leaning hosts.

This as fan demand to drop co-host Whoopi Goldberg from the show permanently gains momentum.

The ABC talker, which recently celebrated its 25th anniversary with a poorly received trip to the Bahamas, could introduce a new member by the beginning of August, after holding informal on-air tryouts with possible candidates for months now.

“You are starting to see familiar faces over and over,” a source told The New York Post. “I would expect an announcement before the season ends on August 5.”

The source added: “If you watch the show, you can see people who are coming back regularly to join the co-hosts at the table. It is an invaluable experience for the show. And it was always the plan to make sure they had a seat at the table.”

The next conservative co-host will take the seat that once belonged to Meghan McCain, who left the popular daytime talk show back in the summer of 2021, later making claims of being "bullied."

Over the summer, late Senator John McCain's daughter quit the show, telling Joy Behar and her other co-hosts at the time, Whoopi, Sunny Hostin, and Sara Haines: "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."

But before concluding her announcement, the 37-year-old took a final swipe at the renowned fights they all shared on-air.

"If you guys want to fight a little bit more, we've got four more weeks," she joked.

Recently, it's the fans who have been fighting – demanding the show fire Whoopi, after several awkward and uncomfortable moments.

In a recent episode, filmed while the ladies were on location in the Bahamas, Whoopi and the other ladies were deep in a heated discussion about the Supreme Court's decision to side with a high school football coach who sought to kneel and pray on the field after games.

Whoopi argued against the decision, asking if "everyone on the team down with (praying)."

She then answered her own question with "they weren’t."

And then, as the 66-year-old was making her final point that this is a case of "an adult putting his belief on these kids," she ended sharply, and sternly threw to commercial.

But not before making sure to call out one of her behind-the-scenes co-workers on camera.

"We'll be right back," she shouted, before pointing a finger directly at the camera and saying sternly, "I know, I saw you."

Her face wrinkled and she stared angrily into the camera until it panned away.

It was the climax of a crazy week for the comedian.


Previously, Whoopi abruptly halted the show during an interview with guest Chloe Fineman.

The moment came after the host had had an on-air blunder, messing up the Saturday Night Live star's name during the introduction.

Whoopi welcomed her to the show as Chloe Fine-a-man but wanted a chance to try again.

After Chloe made her way over to the table, the crowd cheered and she sat down.

Before jumping right into questions, Whoopi paused things to go back to the introduction a little.

"I'm going to say your name again because I said Fine-a-man and it's Fineman," Whoopi explained to the actress.

Chloe was very understanding and nodded.

"That's ok. It almost reads like Fin-a-man (Cinnamon with an 'F'), so," she told the host.

Whoopi replied: "Well, I almost went there, but I didn't. Anyway, Chloe's here!"


When action star Simu Liu walked out to join the co-hosts at the table, he had fans in a frenzy as he walked out with an open button-down shirt.

Whoopi shut down the audience, who wouldn't stop screaming and cheering.

“Alright now! Alright now!” Whoopi hollered.
