Meghan McCain leaving The View latest – Host slammed by Whoopi Goldberg after calling Capitol riot probe 'politicized'

MEGHAN McCain, who will soon leave The View, has been slammed by Whoopi Goldberg after calling the Capitol riot probe "politicized."

The conservative talk show host – who announced in July that she was "done" with the show and clashing with her co-stars – was blasted by Goldberg during the conclusion of Wednesday's segment.

"I have to point my finger to the other side, and this isn’t about politicizing," Goldberg said, the Daily Beast reported.

"This is not about defunding anybody. This has nothing to do with anything but really crappy behavior by really inspired people by the guy that used to live in the White House.

“That’s what this is about. This is not about anything but crappy behavior -I’m going to say it again – on the other side of the aisle."

Goldberg's fiery statement comes after McCain wrote in a recent Instagram post that she's been overworked and wants a break.
