Tensions at “The View” past & present: Whoopi Goldberg scolds Meghan McCain on air
Whoopi Goldberg wasn’t having it.
Just when Meghan McCain and Joy Behar were about to embark on yet another off-the-rails argument Monday on “The View,” Goldberg stepped in and put an end to her co-hosts’ spat before it turned into something ugly.
“OK, so here’s the deal,” Goldberg said when things started to get out of control between the two women. “Here’s what’s not going to happen today. We’re not going to do this. Everybody’s going to get 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 folks talk.”
Goldberg stepped in when McCain began to speak over Behar who said: “I’ve listened to you. Let me finish.”
“It’s part of your job to listen to me,” McCain huffed.
In response, Behar shot McCain a hostile stare that can only be described as utter disbelief and searing rage.
Over on Twitter, it’s clear that the tense moment did not sit well with View fans watching at home. Many thought Meghan’s comment to Joy was “disrespectful,” “wrong,” and “shameful.” Many went as far as saying that Meghan, who joined the The View in October 2017, should “have to go” after her remark.
This happened as a new book about The View and all of its past dramas has just come out. In the video below, the author speaks about a Whoopi-Rosie O’Donnell feud, Barbara Walters, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, and more.
