The MSNBC host, who was dropped from The View after the 2014-15 season, tells the Los Angeles Times of her experience: "I loved it. I loved it." So, what was the problem? "Well, I think the problem was it wasn’t contentious that season I was on," she says. "Being fired from a TV show where you think you’re kind of baring your soul feels personal because it is. It’s like being broken up with. Because I never worked in entertainment I think what I didn’t understand is: It really was a casting, and it was a casting they didn’t like. I sought to make peace with Rosie O’Donnell and Rosie Perez then co-hosts on (The View). I had such a special friendship with Whoopi Goldberg — the first human being who I have ever heard say out loud, in the summer of 2015 — "(Trump) is going to be a president, guys.” I remember whipping my head around and looking at her."
