Jedediah Bila has been booted off of “The View.” At least, that’s what it looks like. She announced her departure as if it were voluntary, but the press is already whispering about her replacement. It’s been reported that Meghan McCain will fill Bila’s shoes.
Bila was hired as the resident conservative voice on the show. She was presented as a radical Republican, a foil to the overtly liberal commentators sitting around her. Last week she hosted a biting interview with Hillary Clinton.
“To be fair, it hasn’t just been Republicans who have taken issue with the writing of this book. Some Democrats have come out as well,” Bila said.
“Former campaign surrogates of yours, former fundraisers and said, ‘This book puts us in the past and we wanna move forward, we wanna figure out where to take this party, how to succeed in the future. And this places us in the past.’ How do you respond to Democrats also coming out in criticism of you writing this?”
Clinton evaded the questions with a terse retort. Sources say that Bila’s removal from the show is related to the fierceness of her Clinton interview.
“So this is my last day at ‘The View,’” Bila said Monday. “This has just been an amazing journey and I appreciate all of you. I want to thank the viewers, even the ones that write me hate tweets.”
Will McCain be willing to stay in line? The View courts controversy, but they don’t want their conservative voice to be too well-supported. Their audience wants the left to win.
