Fox News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro set foot in the lion’s den on Thursday as she took on the ladies of ABC’s “The View.” Pirro and Whoopi Goldberg got into a heated debate in a brutal way, but what was more insane than the interview itself was the way it ended.
The Fox News host supposedly went on the show to promote her book “Liars, Leakers, and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy,” but it was apparent from when she stepped on that stage that she was there for war. No matter the fact that it was a five versus one battle, Pirro was not about to back off.
Pirro first addressed the rumor that President Donald Trump was considering her for The Supreme Court by saying that there was no consideration of it. “That’s what (President Donald Trump) means by fake news,” she said. But that was mild compared to what was to come.
Co-host Sunny Hostin asked Pirro about the rumor that she was lobbying to take the job of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, but Pirro was interrupted by Hostin as she attempted to answer, which became a theme for the entire interview.
“I’ve known the president for 30 years and I’ve spoken to him a lot over the last 30 years,” Pirro said before Hostin interrupted her. “I’m trying to answer your question!” she said. Pirro did not deny she was lobbying for the job or was in line for it, and she made a strong case about why she should be the attorney general.
“It is time that there are consequences for some of the things that are going on in Washington,” she said. “Look, I’ve been a prosecutor, a judge, and a D.A for 30 years. I’ve run for office five times. I believe in consequences, and when people violate the law, there need to be consequences and we are not seeing that in Washington. We’re not seeing people made accountable for what they’ve done.”
“To answer your question directly, I have spoken to him, not about getting the job, no, but about having someone in that job. I don’t care who it is, as long as it’s an attorney general who’s not in a closet hiding somewhere who 24 hours after he took the job said, ‘I’m not going to do anything with respect to the election,’ and that’s all we’ve been talking about for a year and a half,” she said.
When asked if she would take the job, she did not deny she would, saying only, “I have not been offered the job.” Things got more intense as Goldberg said it “was not the best idea” for President Trump to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Pirro attempted to answer the question but was continuously interrupted by Goldberg and Hostin. She pointed out that it was the fact that former President Obama drew a red line in Syria and did nothing when it was crossed that has the United States in the position it is with Russia which caused her to be interrupted more by the hosts who did not want to hear that.
The show went to break, but when it came back was when the fireworks got out of hand. Pirro said that there were people who despised the president because some people are suffering from “Trump Derangement Syndrome,” and then pointed at Goldberg.
“Did you just point at me?” Goldberg asked. “Listen I don’t have Trump derangement, let me tell you what I have. I’m tired of people starting a conversation with ‘Mexicans are liar’s and rapists,’ … I’m 62 years old, there have been a lot of people in office that I didn’t agree with, but I have never, never seen anything like this.”
Pirro attempted to explain what her point of view was, but Goldberg would not allow it. Pirro said, “Whoopi, you know what’s horrible? When people who shouldn’t be here end up murdering the children of American citizens!” But Goldberg had no answer for that.
“You know what’s horrible, when the President of the United States whips up people to beat the hell out of people!” Whoopi shouted before screaming, “Say goodbye!” When the show returned, Goldberg explained her actions.
“You saw me do something I very rarely do. I very 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.”
The reason she is not hysterical on the show is because no one challenges her. She bullies people and pushes them around so that they don’t argue with her. When faced with a woman who was not about to be intimidated, Whoopi folded like a house of cards and ended the show. It was one of the most pathetic performances she has ever given, and she has given many.
