"This was not an easy decision," she explained. "It took a lot of thought counsel and prayer and talking to my family and close friends. COVID has changed the world for all of us. And it changed the way, at least for me, the way I'm looking at life, the way I'm living my life, the way I want my life to look like."
After the news broke, Hollywood took to social media to share their reactions, with some stars paying tribute to Meghan and wishing her well, as "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Erika Jane tweeted, "Love you @MeghanMcCain💕 Im excited for what comes next!!! 🌟."
Even politicians lavished praise, with Senator Lindsey Graham referencing Meghan's late father Senator John McCain, writing "100% certain that @MeghanMcCain best days lie ahead as a conservative commentator and thought-leader among her generation. Meghan is highly intelligent, feisty, patriotic and stands up for her causes. I wonder where she got that from?"
I just saw video of @JoyVBehar making faces while @MeghanMcCain was gracefully explaining why it was time for her to leave @TheView. I think we all know why Meghan is leaving, and Joy is one of the reasons. Good luck to the next woman entering the lion’s den. You’ll need it.
