Whoopi Goldberg and Judge Jeanine Pirro got into a screaming match over President Donald Trump on Thursday’s episode of The View.
Fox News host Pirro stopped by the ABC daytime show to promote her new book, Liars, Leakers and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy.
Pirro, who is a big Trump supporter, insisted the country is doing much better on Trump’s watch than it was under President Obama.
The conversation quickly deteriorated when the Justice with Judge Jeanine host mentioned “Trump Derangement Syndrome” and pointed to Goldberg.
“Did you just point at me?” Goldberg asked. “Listen, I don’t have Trump Derangement [Syndrome]. Let me tell you what I have. I’m tired of people starting a conversation with ‘Mexicans are liars and rapists.’”
“Listen, I’m 62-years-old, there’ve been a lot of people in office that I haven’t agreed with, but I have never, ever seen anything like this,” Goldberg continued. “I have never seen anybody whip up such hate. I’ve never seen anybody be so dismissive. And clearly you don’t watch the show, so you don’t know that I don’t suffer from that. What I suffer from is the inability to figure out how to fix this.”
Goldberg then tried to steer the conversation back to Pirro’s book, and asked about her references to the “deep state.”
Pirro brought up the actress’ liberal politics, and the two started screaming at each other.
“Whoopi, you know what’s horrible? When people who shouldn’t be here end up murdering the children of American citizens,” Pirro shot back, referring to undocumented immigrants.
Goldberg responded, “You know what’s horrible, when the president of the United States whips up people to beat the hell out of people. Say goodbye! Goodbye! I’m done!”
Co-host Sara Haines then said, “Thank you to Judge Jeanine Pirro…” and tossed to commercial break.
Goldberg apologized to the audience after the break.
“Welcome back. You saw me do something that I rarely do, I rarely lose my cool. I’m not proud of it, I don’t like it,” she said. “But, I also don’t like being accused of being hysterical, because that’s one of the things I try not to be on this show. So. Have a great day.”
Later in the day, Pirro went on Hannity on Fox News, and said Goldberg exploded on her backstage after they left The View set.
“She started cursing at me,” Pirro told host Sean Hannity about Goldberg. “She said ‘f–k you, f–k you’… and then she said ‘get the f–k out of this building!'”
In case you were wondering what “Trump Derangement Syndrome” is, the Urban Dictionary describes it as: “A mental condition in which a person has been driven effectively insane due to their dislike of Donald Trump, to the point at which they will abandon all logic and reason.”
Trump tweeted about the supposed disorder Wednesday.
“Some people HATE the fact that I got along well with President Putin of Russia,” he wrote on Twitter. “They would rather go to war than see this. It’s called Trump Derangement Syndrome!”
