Things got nasty once again on The View.
During Wednesday’s episode, co-hosts and frenemies Meghan McCain and Joy Behar got into a heated debate, prompting McCain to call Behar a “bitch.”
The exchange happened as the women discussed President Trump’s 2020 campaign kickoff rally a day earlier in Orlando, Florida. McCain noted that the arena was packed with Trump supporters, leading Behar to interrupt her several times.
The situation came to a head, when McCain asked her left-leaning colleague to stop suggesting Trump’s supporters were bused in to serve as props.
“Don’t belittle the crowds,” McCain said. “It’s a lot of people still enthusiastic, and I was trying to explain to one of my producers this morning, who was saying, ‘Why do people love him so much?’ Sometimes, it’s not just that they love Trump so much. It’s that they hate the same things that Trump hates.”
“Who? Black people, you mean? and Immigrants?” Behar shot back. “Who do they hate? Who do they hate?”
“You know what, Joy, really, I’m here every day open-minded trying to explain it and it’s not a fun job for me,” McCain said. “I know you’re angry. I know that you’re angry that Trump is president.”
Moderator Whoopi Goldberg unsuccessfully tried to get control of the situation.
“Okay, guys! Okay, okay, okay,” she said. “It’s a great discussion, and we can go back to it. I just need everybody to take a beat.”
Unfortunately, it didn’t work.
“I’m the sacrificial Republican every day,” McCain complained, prompting Behar to quip, “Awww.”
“Don’t feel bad for me, bitch,” McCain said. “I’m paid to do this. Okay? Don’t feel bad for me.”
