The View kicked off this morning with one of the most contentious topics on the internet these days: cancel culture. During a discussion about President Obama‘s CNN interview with Anderson Cooper, the co-hosts shared their thoughts on the state of free speech in the country, the consequences of cancel culture, and if there’s a place for it in today’s society.

After Obama told Cooper, “A lot of the dangers of cancel culture and ‘we’re just going to be condemning people all the time,’ at least among my daughters, they’ll acknowledge that among their peer group or in college campuses, you’ll see people going overboard,” co-host Meghan McCain looked back on her own experience speaking at colleges and why she would never do a tour again in today’s climate.

“I do think there’s a concern with the way college campuses are run, and you hear comedians all over the place like Jerry Seinfeld and Bill Maher saying they won’t speak on college campuses,” she said, adding, “I used to do college tours all the time. There’s not enough money on planet earth to get me to go in front of a college campus and be screamed at for being a conservative, pro-life woman.”

While McCain is a proud conservative, she had plenty of praise for Obama, who ran against her late father, John McCain, in the 2008 presidential election. “I think that President Obama became president because he understood many factions of the American public,” she said earlier in the show. “He understood his progressive part of the party, he understood his more moderates. He was a president for his entire Democratic party,” she said, arguing that Obama differs from the “hard left” like ‘”The Squad’ and AOC” because “he sees a sort of repression of free speech.”

McCain professed that she does “believe in cancel culture” and “accountability culture,” but stressed the importance of free speech. “I think we’re in a space where conversations feel stifled and feel repressed and feel like we aren’t open to hearing disagreements and opinions on the other side, no matter how extreme they are,” she said, before issuing a warning to all of her co-hosts.

“I think all of us, who I assume are fans of the First Amendment because we make our jobs as opinion hosts, should be concerned at the repression of free speech,” McCain said.
