Meghan McCain on leaving ‘The View’: ‘I don’t miss it at all

THE VIEW - 3/20/20

Meghan McCain does not miss The View.

Though only gone from the ABC talk show for a month — technically nine shows — the co-host known for her conservative commentary says in a new interview that she doesn’t regret her decision to quit.

“What I said on The View was true,” McCain told the Daily Mail. “I just didn’t feel like moving back to New York was the right choice for me. And it was a really hard decision, but, I feel really good about it now and I don’t miss it at all.”

She said it stemmed from an “existential crisis” she had after the death of her late father, Sen. John McCain, in 2018, which led her to hone in on the important things in her life. So after having her first child, Liberty, last September in Washington, D.C. — where she and husband Ben Domenech were for the pandemic — she decided she didn’t want to leave and return to NYC where The View tapes.

“When I think about where I want Liberty to take her first steps and her first words, I just have this wonderful life here that I felt ultimately like I didn’t want to leave,” she explained.
