Earlier this month, McCain announced she would be leaving The View at the end of the 24th season. "This was not an easy decision. It took a lot of thought and counsel and prayer and talking to my family and my close friends,” she admitted, noting that the pandemic had caused her to reevaluate “the way I am looking at life, the way I'm living my life, the way I want my life to look like.”
