Meghan McCain, daughter of Sen. John (R-Az.) and Cindy McCain, is the featured guest co-host April 23 & 24. McCain, author of “My Dad, John McCain” who also blogs for TheDailyBeast.com, made headlines following her March 16, 2009 appearance on “The View” after telling co-hosts Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd that the then plus-sized comments made about her were “terrible,” and added: “When Tyra Banks went on her show in a bathing suit and said ‘kiss my fat a**,’ that’s what I feel like. Kiss my fat a**!”
