On the very liberal ABC talk show The View, it’s very difficult for the token conservative host to keep her job on the panel for more than one season. Candace Cameron-Bure became the latest victim of this today, when she broke down as she announced she would be leaving the ABC show.
As is customary in these situations, Cameron-Bure claimed it was her choice to leave the program, traveling back and forth from Los Angeles and New York while working on the Fuller House reboot for Netflix and The View. Though Whoopi Goldberg is well aware that Cameron-Bure is a conservative Christian with strong morals, she couldn’t resist hitting her with an off-color sex joke on her way out the door.
“You miss your family,” Whoopi said, according to Daily Mail. “With all the sex talk we do, you miss your husband.”
Joy Behar said that Cameron-Pure was doing too much, and the actress acknowledged, “I tried to be Superwoman, but I’m not.”
“It wasn’t an easy decision, but before I started The View I had already had my commitments to Fuller House and my work with the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries. And because of the success of those, my commitments have become even greater with those shows,” said Cameron-Bure. “The commute of going West Coast to East Coast every single week for me has been tough on me and hard for my family as well, and I want to make sure that I’m able to spend at much time with my children and invest in all the projects that I do to the fullest extent.”
Cameron-Bure then showed how classy she really is by thanking Whoopi and Behar despite the fact that the two liberals relentlessly attacked her on a daily basis.
“Particularly, I want to thank you for welcoming me to this table. I have learned to much for you, and I’m so grateful for you,” said Cameron-Bure. “It’s been really wonderful and I’m grateful and to Barbara [Walters, creator of the show] as well as showrunner Candi Carter.”
Though Cameron-Bure claims she chose to leave, it’s highly suspicious that yet another conservative is leaving after such a short time on the show. What do you think about this? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
