The ongoing feud between ABC’s “The View” co-hosts Meghan McCain and Joy Behar erupted on Wednesday when the two had a fiery exchange on air.
The exchange became so heated that at one point McCain told Behar, “Don’t feel bad for me, b*tch,” as they clashed during a discussion about the massive crowd size at President Donald Trump’s official re-election rally on Tuesday night in Orlando, Florida.
“There were people lining up 40 hours before the event,” McCain said as Behar interrupted to claim people were “bussed in” and that it was “fake.”
“It’s not fake news,” McCain fired back.
“Don’t belittle the enthusiasm,” she said, arguing that the massive rally is indicative of how many Americans love the president.
“It’s not just they love Trump so much,” McCain said. “They hate the same things Trump hates, that’s what’s going on.”
“Who? Black people, you mean, and immigrants?” Behar interrupted, setting McCain off as she became exasperated by the interruptions while she was trying to explain the “enthusiasm” for Trump,
“You know what, Joy, I come here every day open-minded just trying to explain it, and it’s not a fun job for me,” she said. “I know you’re angry. I get that you’re angry that Trump’s president, like a lot of people are. But I don’t think yelling at me is going to fix the problem, okay?”
“Am I yelling?” Behar asked.
“Yes!” McCain yelled in response. “I’m trying to explain why 2020 is not in the bag for you! It’s not!”
“Okay, okay, okay,” Goldberg interjected. “It’s a great discussion, and we can go back to it. I just need everybody to take a beat.”
But McCain was too heated to quit.
“Being the sacrificial Republican every day — I’m just trying to –” she began as Behar gave a sarcastic groan. “Don’t feel bad for me, bitch! I’m paid to do this, okay? Don’t feel bad for me!”
When they came back from commercial, McCain and Behar tried to play it off as if they weren’t mad at each other.
Many won’t find it surprising that McCain snapped on Behar given the the liberal comedian has a long history of making controversial remarks, especially about Trump, his supporters, and conservatives.
Here are a few additional abhorrent comments made by Behar last year:
She also came under fire last year and was forced to issue an apology after she said Vice President Mike Pence had a “mental illness” because he is a devout Christian.
