Frustrated Whoopi Goldberg Goes Off On Meghan McCain For Constantly Interrupting With Nonsense: Watch
“The View” host Whoopi Goldberg grew frustrated on Monday during an altercation between co-hosts Meghan McCain and Joy Behar.
The panel was discussing immigration after the recent resignation of former Homeland Security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
“This is a hardline issue for people who live in border states,” McCain said. “Many friends of mine — this is the No. 1 and only issue. If we sit here and act like there isn’t a crisis, (that) it’s crazy people living in border states that think there’s a crisis, that’s a winning ticket for Trump in 2020.”
Behar said she agreed with interim Homeland Security secretary Kevin McAleenan, who has stressed the need to continue foreign aid to Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.
“This guy coming in wants to help those countries, that’s the way to solve these problems,” Behar said. “Keep them there, happy, or whatever. Give them a house, give them food, help them, help their children, stop the crime rates.”
But then McCain interrupted, as she usually does.
“We’ve had a bunch of liberal guests that don’t want to send aid, at all,” McCain said.
This didn’t sit well with Behar who called her out for always interrupting.
“I’ve listened to you, let me finish,” Behar said.
McCain grew frustrated herself and fired back.
“Part of your job is to listen to me,” she said, brushing her hair over her shoulder as the audience hooted. “I’m just saying.”
But Goldberg had heard enough.
“Here’s what’s not going to happen today,” she said. “We’re not going to do this. Everybody gets a conversation piece, everybody gets to say their piece, and we don’t need to comment if we don’t like what we’re hearing. Just let people talk.”
