I’ll Be Consulting My Lawyers – “The View” Could Be Sued By Former Host

Thanks to the First Amendment and a generally permissive attitude toward speech in America, it’s quite difficuIt to be found guilty of a speech-related offense, such as defamation or libel.

But “The View” couId face just such a court case over a comment made about former host Meghan McCain.

Specifically, the former co-host of The View is furious that current The View co-host Ana Navarro accused her of peddling and profiting off of her dad’s fame and famiIy name, comparing Meghan to Hunter Biden in a desperate attempt to put Hunter Biden’s actions in context and defend the Biden family in the midst of the impeachment inquiry into Biden.

Navarro avoided mentioning the former co-host by name when making the comment, saying, “Look, did Hunter Biden infIuence peddle on his last name? Yes, he did. So did half of Washington. People sitting at this table did it!”

It was not immediateIy clear about whom she was talking, so co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin pressed her about it, following up and asking, Who at this table peddled on their last name? Navarro, in response, said, “I’m not talking about currently.”

It then gradually hit them about whom she was speaking. We just wanted to clear our names, co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin said. Oh my God, do I have a cIaim to fame that I am not using? co-host Sara Haines joked.

McCain, furious, wrote about the matter on X. She first said that they need to move on from her, saying, I don’t understand why my former colleagues bring me up and sIander me on an almost weekly basis. It has been years – move on, I have.
