Speaking on The Commentary Magazine Podcast, Meghan, 37, revealed the final straw for her was a comment made by her co-host Joy, 79, live on-air.

It came after Meghan had been away from The View on maternity leave following the birth of her daughter, Liberty.

The Republican author said: “I finally went back to the show, and the day I went back to the show, Joy Behar said on air, ‘Nobody missed you, we didn’t miss you, you shouldn’t have come back. ‘

“And I just… I started crying hysterically. Sorry gentlemen, I know, I started lactating on air and I started crying.”

Meghan claimed that the show was an unwelcoming environment as she returned back to work.

“I didn’t feel supported when I had my baby and I didn’t feel supported coming back and that was ultimately it. That was why I left!”

Since she left The View last year, Meghan has been outspoken about her bad experiences both on-air and behind-the-scenes.

She told The Commentary Magazine Podcast: “It was a very egregious toxic work environment.”

Joy’s comments seemed particularly insensitive to Meghan, who is the late John McCain’s daughter, because she had suffered a miscarriage before she became pregnant with Liberty.

A month after the tragedy, Joy had joked on air that the only thing Meghan could breastfeed was “a cactus”.

ABSOLUTE ULTIMATE-MOM

Meghan gave birth to Liberty on September 28, 2020.

The now one-year-old is the first child for both Meghan and her husband Ben Domenech, who is also a conservative commentator.

But Meghan has made it clear that she doesn’t want her daughter to follow in her mother’s talk show footsteps.

She shockingly told The Commentary Magazine Podcast: “If she in 15 years came to me and said to me, ‘The View wants to have me host there,’ I would lie in front of a train track before I let her go to that show .”

NEW VIEW

Meghan’s role as the conservative voice on The View has now been taken over by Alyssa Farah Griffin.
