MEGHAN McCain quit The View live on-air after saying she's "done" with her co-star clashes and joked they have "four weeks of fighting left."
The host will reportedly give up her four-season stint on the daytime talk show at the end of July, despite having two years left on her contract.

"This was not an easy decision, it took a lot of thought and counsel and prayer and talking to my family," she said.
McCain called her co-stars – Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin and Sara Haines – the "four most talented women on television" and the "best in the business."
However, while concluding her announcement, she took a swipe at the renowned fights that McCain had with the hosts.
"If you guys want to fight a little bit more, we've got four more weeks," she quipped.
McCain's resignation comes after:
- She slammed Olympian Gwen Perry for portraying US as "irredeemable cr**hole"
- She slammed that Biden’s abortion stance is "doing grave harm to US"
- McCain was ripped by Whoopi Goldberg for saying Biden "embarrassed himself"
- She called Vice President Kamala Harris a "moron"
However, according to Page Six, ABC begged McCain to stay at the show, but a source told them that she said "No, I'm done! I'm not staying anymore."
"They even offered a contributor role on ABC News, which she turned down," the source added. "She's just had enough. She doesn’t need it anymore — she really doesn’t need it."
Meghan joined the cast of The View in October of 2017 and has been on the air for a total of four seasons.
The TV personality has been a leading Republican stance in the media over the last few years, following in the footsteps of her father, the late Senator John McCain.
Despite her longevity on the show, the politician's daughter has been clashing with her co-hosts of late.
Last month, Whoopi Goldberg slammed Meghan for saying President Biden "embarrassed himself" while meeting Russia's Vladimir Putin.
The two ladies got into a heated debate after the Arizona native claimed Biden's turning down of a CNN reporter's question was "100 percent Trumpy."
"The thing that I never saw Trump do was apologize to anybody," Whoopi shot back, leading Meghan to interrupt: "With all due respect, I don't care if he's apologizing, he just embarrassed him."
"I don't care if you don't care, just hear what I'm saying," Whoopi complained while Meghan interjected: "I don't care if you don't care that I don't care."
"Well then good Meghan," the 65-year-old replied, adding: "Then you can be how you always are."
"You'll be how you always are," Meghan finished.
This was not the first time the two hosts have faced conflict, as their differing views have clashed frequently over the past several months.
In May, Meghan "stormed" out of a meeting with ABC executives, saying she felt "attacked."
The network claimed to have been inundated with phone calls suggesting they fire the conservative columnist due to what some believed to be anti-Semitic comments directed at her other co-host Joy Behar.
Meghan married her husband Ben Domenech in 2017 and the couple welcomed their first daughter Liberty in September of 2020.
