Meghan McCain, who left The View in 2021, is threatening to sue some of the current hosts of the show, claiming that they slandered her.
The daughter of Senator John McCain wasn't brought up by name on the show. But it seems as she is assuming Ana Navarro invoked her while discussing the current Hunter Biden situation.
The conversation turned to the practice of influence peddling. "Look, did Hunter Biden influence-peddle on his last name? Yes, he did," said Navarro. "So did half of Washington. People sitting at this table did it."
McCain was either watching the show or was told about the segment, because she took to Twitter to respond. The former View host wrote, "I don’t understand why my former colleagues @TheView@ABC bring me up and slander me on an almost weekly basis. It has been years - move on, I have."
The Conservative pundit continued:
"I have never been accused of a crime in my life and am a patriotic American - I would never and have never “influenced peddled” in my life, let alone with foreign adversaries. Not all politicians children are the same - and I am no Hunter Biden. All accusations are absurd, defamatory and slanderous. I will be consulting my lawyers regarding what was libeled against me on The View this morning."
