“I used to watch ‘The View’ in college and she was really such an icon for young Republican women and I hope I’m giving that to anyone that’s watching,” she continued. “I know there’s people in the middle of the country that feel like they’re really happy that someone is representing them.”
Despite taking it all in stride, McCain’s conservative views have sparked more than a few dust-ups between her and the other cast members. However, the 34-year-old conservative understands it’s part of the series’ longevity and appeal.
“I mean, I think that’s why people like the show. They know it’s not scripted and they know we’re not being phony and I’m not trying to placate to an audience,” McCain added. “I always say we’re like the only show that [talks] about J.Lo and A-Rod and North Korea in the same show, and I think that’s important.”
She also revealed that the cast is good about not taking the fights with them after the episode ends, noting that she often has to be reminded of past arguments when fans ask about them.
