The View is scrambling to find a 'Trump Republican' to replace Meghan McCain, leaving veteran co-host Joy Behar complaining that the new addition could be even tougher than her on-screen enemy.

'It's chaos behind the scenes at The View,' an ABC insider tells DailyMail.com. 'Joy Behar is openly moaning about Meghan leaving as it's finally hit her that sometimes it is better the devil you know.

'Joy has only just realized that they could be getting someone much further right on the political spectrum than Meghan who won't put up with her crap,' they added. 

The source said that if ABC was gutsy, they'd do a 'massive shake up' and hire popular conservatives like Kimberly Guilfoyle, Megyn Kelly or even controversial Candace Owens to 'give the other women a run for their money.'

The insider also revealed that the show had tried three different times to hire Guilfoyle, girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr., while she was at Fox News. 

'[Kimberly] would be great as she would literally prosecute the other members of the panel every day of the week,' they said. 'One of our highest rated episodes ever was when she stopped by the show with Don Jr.

'Megyn Kelly would also do the same, however her new Sirius deal makes it hard for her to come to us.'

There is also mounting tension as guest host Ana Navarro is vying for a permanent seat, but the insider claims she won't get it.

'Ana Navarro is angry because she desperately wants Meghan's job but she's convinced they're not going to give her a full time seat at the table,' they said. 

'Ana doesn't deserve the chair. She is not a Republican in the true sense of the word, all she does is slam people who voted for Trump. 

'We need to hire a Trump Republican to reach more of the available audience at home.
