Meghan McCain’s Absence from ‘The View’ Met with Cheers from Critics: ‘2 Days of Calm’

Meghan McCain was absent from her seat on “The View” for the two days and her critics couldn’t be more thrilled.

“I will be gone from @TheView tomorrow and Friday,” McCain, 33, announced on Twitter. “I am going to London to speak @HouseofCommons, and then to accept the Magnitsky Award on behalf of my father and all who continue the fight against [Vladimir] Putin’s tyrannous KGB dictatorship …”

The news was met with cheers from viewers who said they could use a break from the conservative co-host’s on-air antics and hissy fits.

“Good to hear, we get a beak from your rude screaming head rolling valley girl ‘that’s the way I roll’ immature behavior,” one critic wrote.

“Yayyyyyy they [the co-hosts] can finally have an adult conversation! Thanks for the head up,” another chimed in.

One user revealed over the “2 days of calm, rational discussions – no pouting, no fuming, no yelling over the other women. The respite has been soothing.”

Others took the high road, however, and applauded McCain for following in her father’s footsteps. Sen. John McCain, a Vietnam war veteran, died earlier this year after a battle with a rare form of brain cancer. He was 81 years old.

“You’re dad will always be a hero!” one fan wrote. “You are making him so proud. I know he’s smiling from above and he’s proud of the incredible, strong, fierce, kind, and caring women you’ve become! You two are what makes America great! You two put America first before party!”

“We often disagree, but I applaud your trip to London to support the wonderful work your Dad did re the Magnitsky Act,” said another.

One left McCain with this simple message: “God bless Senator John McCain and his legacy.”
