Rosie O'Donnell stopped by the clubhouse on Watch What Happens Live Monday night, where she revealed that she does not watch The View, but she does feel compassion towards Meghan McCain as a co-host.

"I don't watch it and I knew her when she was very young," said O'Donnell, who once starred on the show. "I had the pleasure of working with her father for a lot of the Wounded Warrior Projects. And so, got to know him through there and, you know, I think she's in a difficult position."

Andy Cohen then interjected, "Being a conservative voice on the show," to which O'Donnell responded, "Yeah, trying to do that while grieving. She was very, very tight with her father, and he had been dying for a while. We watched her daily try to grieve and get through. It's not really that easy. So I do have some compassion for her."

Just last week on The View, McCain and Joy Behar got into a vicious fight over Donald Trump's re-election rally, which resulted in McCain calling Behar a "b****." However, later during the same episode, the two brushed it off as McCain said that she loves the word, and that she and Behar call each other a "b****” all the time. Regardless, O'Donnell did have one thing to say about that.

"I wish she wouldn't be mean to Joy Behar, who is, you know, like, a living legend, and should be respected for no other reason than she's the elder statesman in the room," stated O'Donnell.

Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen airs Sunday-Thursday at 10 p.m. on Bravo.
