The piece, authored by Shamira Ibrahim, called McCain the show’s “most polarizing and predictable figure” and her debates with other hosts and guests “just exhausting.”

The writer continued that after 2016 “we are presented with a platform that is devoid of the varnish of genteel.” 

“The problem is, with Ms. McCain still on the show, there’s not much to enjoy,” she wrote.
