Sarah Palin Seriously Considering Joining ABC's 'The View'

The former Republican governor and vice presidential candidate spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about her future ambitions, including a possible spot on ABC’s The View. With Barbara Walters’ semi-retirement underway and the pending departures of Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepard, The View is actively looking for new co-hosts. And as Palin revealed in Monday’s interview, she’s actively interested.

All reporter Marisa Guthrie had to do was ask Palin if she was generally interested in hosting a political talk show and she quickly opened up about her apparent desire to join the ABC daytime show. Palin said:

“I hear everyone recently got canned from The View, maybe a show like that needs a punch of reality and a voice of reason from America’s heartland to knock some humble sense into their scripts. You know, someone willing to go rogue.”
Back in June 2013, Palin had been offered a guest-hosting gig on The View during Walters’ final months, but Palin turned them down due to scheduling conflicts.

Less than a month later, Walters ended up defending Bill Maher’s use of the word “retarded” to describe Palin’s son Trig. “Do I think it was unfortunate that he did it?” she asked. “Yes I do. Do I think that he realized what it was? No, I don’t think he intended it be mean-spirited.”
