There is widespread speculation about who will replace Meghan McCain’s seat on The View.
Rumors of conservative commentator Alyssa Farah Griffin as the replacement are causing some to call for boycotting of the show.
In a statement on July 26, The View said, “We do not have a co-host announcement to make at this time. Stay tuned.”
Nonetheless, fans of the show have taken to Twitter to voice their outrage over the alleged hiring.
Birther @Alyssafarah will be the new co-host. @abcnews thinks it will give them higher ratings. They miscalculated. Time to show execs they crossed a line when they signed a Trump propagandist. Nobody who cares about democracy wants to see her sorry mug. #BoycottTheView

Another person said, “I’ll #BoycottTheView permanently if they hire #TrumpTraitorTrash.”
“If Alyssa is selected, then it’s time to #BoycottTheView and let ratings drop so she gets fired sooner,” a third posted.
Another person strongly shared, “NO. Alyssa Farah Griffin, REALLY? They tried to overturn our election.”
If Alyssa is announced then it’s time to #BoycottTheView and let ratings drop so she gets fired sooner.

“If the new co-host of #TheView had anything to do with the Trump administration! I’m just gonna stop watching… Not kidding!!! #boycotttheview #changethechannel #NeverAgain #NeverForget #NeverForgive,” from another viewer.
Another person said, “The one nice thing about Alyssa Farah Griffin being named a permanent co-host on @TheView is that I will now have an extra 200 hours a year. What could you accomplish with another 200 hours a year? #BoycottTheView #TheView.”
