Meghan McCain Makes Alarming Prediction for Taylor Swift's Future

Meghan McCain is the latest media personality to weigh in on Taylor Swift's undeniable popularity—and she's wondering how much longer it's going to last.

The former co-host on The View opened up a discussion about Swift and her high level of fame during the newest episode of her Citizen McCain podcast, where she insisted that even though the "Fortnight" singer seems to be on top of the world right now, a fall from grace isn't necessarily out of the question.

"She has, respectfully, no place else to go but down at this point," McCain, 39, said during the Monday, June 24 episode, where she described herself as "not not a fan" of Swift, but also clarified that she is "not a Swiftie."

"I do think when she’s done touring, giving us a mild break from her being in the news cycle as much as she is would be helpful for her and us as commentators," McCain explained, noting that Swift, 34, has been on The Eras Tour for over a year at this point and was even named TIME Magazine's 2023 Person of the Year.

"I feel like I’m living in this Groundhog Day of Trump, Biden, Taylor Swift; Trump, Biden, Taylor Swift," the political commentator added. "Those are the only topics that Americans are allowed to talk about in the news all day long. And I think for her, a little bit of a beat would be good."

But McCain's co-host Miranda Wilkins pointed out that when Swift's tour ends in December, Travis Kelce's football season will still be in full swing, and Swift will likely be in the crowd to attend as many games as she can.

"I don't think we're ever going to be able to escape her," Wilkins said.

But McCain and Wilkins made it clear elsewhere in the conversation that they don't "dislike," the 14-time Grammy winner, and McCain even said she "respects" how loyal fans are to Swift.

However, the daughter of former U.S. Senator John McCain also wondered about possible backlash that could come Swift's way, especially amid speculation that the singer has been releasing new versions of her albums to block other female artists, like Billie Eilish and Charlie XCX, from out-ranking her on the charts.

Even though McCain invited "hyper-fan" Swiftie and her producer Ashley in on the conversation to defend Swift's business practices, McCain expressed her thoughts that "karmically," Swift could be "messing with some stuff" in the universe by "putting checks on a scoreboard" when it comes to album sales.

Ashley, however, said she "stood by" Swift's decisions, stating, "I think she should be able to do what she wants to be successful and not have to worry about someone beneath her."

"I think she's done more than enough things to prove that she's willing to help lift other people up when she can and when it makes sense for her," she added.
