Joy Behar and Meghan McCain’s on-air relationship has deteriorated, and it’s almost a given that Meghan will be leaving The View. Monday morning they got into a real cat-fight on live TV over President Donald Trump’s 2020 potential victory. Even Whoopi Goldberg tried to stop them and was at a loss for words. You’ll love this.
The View was on hiatus last week, but on Monday, the ABC morning show came back with a vengeance. It only took 20 minutes for things to get fiery: a discussion about the Mueller report quickly went off the rails when Meghan McCain began yelling over her co-hosts about the Democrats’ “perilous path.”
It started out as a discussion on Robert Mueller’s report and ended up with Meghan McCain warning the Democrats they better come up with something fast if they really want to beat Trump in 2020.
Of course, Joy Behar rolled her eyes and, along with Sunny Hostin, told McCain that Trump stole the 2016 election, which defied logic and facts presented by Rober Mueller.
McCain claimed that “the demonizing of all conservatives in this country” will earn President Trump reelection, and she insisted (over the panel’s protests) that Joy Behar’s concerns about Russian election interference were “irrational.”
At one point, the conflict got so intense that moderator Whoopi Goldberg leaned over and threw The View to commercial, and McCain’s yells could be heard as the show’s music played and the screen faded to black.
McCain got even more heated during the second half of The View‘s Mueller discussion. “What’s the problem? Why is everyone so nervous about 2020 if this is just a nail in the coffin and the president’s over?” asked the conservative co-host.
“Because we’re afraid the Russians will steal the election again,” interrupted Behar.
“To me, that sounds irrational. That’s an irrational answer to this question I just presented you,” said McCain. “Unfortunately for Democrats, you’ve got to get out there and win over the voters you lost in the middle of the country.”
“The question is, what are Republicans going to do about this behavior?” interrupted Hostin, but McCain ignored her, instead of thanking her “one fan” in the audience for clapping. This is when Behar rolls her eyes and is completely incensed. She really wants to scratch Meghan’s eyes out, and Meghan is really angry.
McCain said that she blames “the left as much as [she] blames the right” for our political “mess,” adding, “The demonizing of all conservatives in this country, all Trump supporters in every way — you’re getting him reelected.”
When McCain noted that the Mueller report proved there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, Behar immediately fired back, saying, “You know that’s not true.”
As the panel began to yell over each other, McCain stayed firm. “Let me finish!” she yelled, holding up her finger to warn Behar.
The gossip site TMZ caught wind of the cat-fight too, and Americans were quick to weigh in.
“#MeghanMcCain was absolutely correct. #JoyBehar gets upset bc she tries to use comedy & quips to bolster her cause, & Meghan thwarts her with facts & logic. The fact that they cut to commercial shows how they want to silence any conservative voice that can reveal their lies,” tweeted Melissa Schultz.

Danny Randall shared a meme of President Trump laughing, summing up just how this show has gotten so out of control over with their shared Trump Derangement Syndrome.

The View has devolved into a Jerry Springer-like show. It’s a bunch of circus clowns with zero insight into just how ridiculous they sound pretending that they have something important to offer.
Meghan McCain is no fan of President Trump, and still, the rest of the shrews attack her, except for Abby Huntsman who is the dumbest shrew of all and the only thing she says over and over is “My dad ran for president, too.” ABC might want to change the show description from “talk show” to “cartoon show,” but the best move would be to put Behar and the rest out of their misery and just cancel it once and for all.
