NEW YORK (AP) — Meghan McCain's first instinct when approached to join "The View" was to say no. That was until her father, Sen. John McCain, convinced her to look past her trepidation to see the opportunity.

In less than a year, she's become a reason to watch the daytime talk show. McCain brings a feisty spirit to the conservative commentator role where predecessors frequently seemed overmatched and overlooked.

She often reflects the views of President Donald Trump's supporters at a table and city where they are deeply unpopular, despite ample personal reasons to despise him.

Her boss calls her utterly fearless, a trait necessary at a workplace that defines the term "Manhattan liberal." She's constantly doing battle with co-hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg.
