- View co-host Meghan McCain faced backlash on Wednesday after she opined on the “qualifications” of her Asian American counterparts. “I think this is just the natural progression of identity politics,” she claimed.
- “The View is 25 years old next year. We’ve only had one Asian American host co-host this show. So does that mean that one of us should be leaving at some point because there’s not enough representation?”
- “We’re going to a place where even if [white] people need money, even if [white] people are qualified to get into Ivy Leagues, race and gender is more important than your skill qualifications, the content of your character,” she remarked. “It is not what Martin Luther King Jr. preached. I think this is a very, very slippery slope.”
