Throughout her time there, McCain regularly butted heads with the other hosts over differing political views. She once got into a screaming match with Joy Behar, and even branded herself the show's "sacrificial Republican" because many of the other hosts constantly disagreed with her. Now, she's confessed she is only still in contact with Sunny Hostin.
"Sunny is one of the greatest TV presences in all of television. I keep telling her she should have her own show," McCain gushed of the famed journalist. "I don't know why MSNBC isn't trying to poach her for Rachel Maddow's spot."
"She's by far the most politically savvy person on that show. And extremely curious in a way I didn't find anyone else I worked with. Like, curious about different aspects of politics," she elaborated on why it was so easy to form a bond with the tv personality. "She's the only cast member I still have a relationship with. I have such love for her and respect for her.
"She's a really good person and she didn't demonize me the way a lot of other people did, for whatever that's worth," she added.
While McCain doesn't fully regret her time on The View, she admitted she doesn't watch it or follow it on social media at all anymore. "Most of the pop culture I consume, it's a lot of Housewives," she mentioned. "So I don't watch anymore and it would be too weird to watch."
"It was a really hard time in my life. I've been really open, in my book, about what happened," she explained. "I felt like I owed it to give more context to my experience. I think my experience on the show suffered a lot with COVID and Zoom. I think it's a lot easier to hate someone through a box and through a screen and to not understand where they're coming from."
Although she hasn't made her big return to daytime television hosting, McCain is keeping busy. As OK! previously reported, since leaving the chat fest, McCain landed a job as a political columnist for Daily Mail, and snagged a job executive producing the Lifetime drama Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff: The Kristine Carlson Story starring Heather Locklear.
