This week, “The View’s” co-host Meghan McCain gave a heartfelt shoutout to her co-worker Whoopi Goldberg. A fan commented in the post wanting to know is she was leaving and McCain responded.

On Wednesday, Meghan McCain, 35, paid tribute to her “The View” co-star, Whoopi Goldberg. She shared a photo of herself with Goldberg next to her and revealed that it was a privilege to get to work with the actress.

The “Raising McCain” former star revealed that she loved Goldberg, whom she called a living icon. She shared her gratitude to the co-host for her friendship, unending support, and political perspective.

McCain noted that she was continuing to learn from her friend daily. She confessed that she was fortunate to work on the talk show every day surrounded by incredible women.

A fan replied to the post sharing her gratitude for the post. The follower explained that she’d been watching “The View” and would notice that the Emmy Award winner seemed miserable.



The fan admitted that she would get concerned about the television personality leaving the show. She ended her post noting that the co-host was great.

McCain replied to the fan by chasing away her fears with a simple response: “Not going anywhere but maternity leave!” The late Senator John McCain’s daughter and her husband, Ben Domenech, are expecting their first child together.

More than six months ago, McCain announced that they were expecting. However, she and The Federalist co-founder haven’t confirmed the due date, but it’s believed it is around November 2020.

McCain and Goldberg have reportedly known each other for years. The “Ghost” actress and the late senator were said to have been good friends since John’s daughter was a young girl.



Although they’re seemingly quite close, the actress and McCain still get into heated debates on their talk show. In December 2019, the two had to clear the air after having a dispute on-air.

During the segment, the younger co-host, once again, shared her love for Goldberg. She noted the actress’s friendship with her late father and shared that they fought like they were family.

Speaking to Andy Cohen about the incident on “Watch What Happens Live,” McCain cleared the air again. The star confessed that she couldn’t participate in the talk show without Goldberg.

She went on to describe the comedian as the show’s anchor and someone who picked them up when they were down. Besides the two friends, “The View” is co-hosted by Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and Sara Haines.
