Wow.. maybe Kid Rock was right about Joy Behar.
The internet has been buzzing about the exchange between Behar and Meghan McCain. The two got into a heated argument over President Trump and the show immediately went to commercial break, leaving many fans to wonder what had happened next.
Apparently, Behar was so angry, she told producers to do something about McCain or she’s quitting. Behar called McCain an “entitled b****.”
What was meant to be a heartwarming tribute to President George H. W. Bush on The View Monday ended in an ugly shouting match between Meghan McCain and Joy Behar after the discussion at the table turned political.
Moderator Whoopi Goldberg was forced to cut to commercial break after viewers saw the two hosts go at it during a heated exchange - which later escalated off air, a show insider told DailyMail.com.
The episode kicked off with a Hot Topics segment intended to honor the late 41st president, who died on Friday, with the co-hosts taking turns to speak on his legacy.
But just a few minutes in, the conversation went south when Behar threw Trump's name into the mix while commending Bush's support for environmental issues.
'I want to say one thing about him that was not picked up really, because as a candidate he said, "Those who think we're powerless to do anything about the greenhouse effect, are forgetting about the White House effect," then he signed into law the Clean Air Act amendment of 1990, one of the most sweeping environmental statutes ever,' she said.
'This president that we have now is trying to unravel everything that he did and Obama did, and if I ever become a one-issue voter it will be about pollution and the greenhouse effect -' she said before being interrupted.
'Can we focus on the president, please. I don't want to talk about Trump, we're honoring a great president,' McCain interjected.
Behar shot back: 'Excuse me a second, please. I want to talk about - ' before McCain cut her off again saying: 'We're honoring a great president who passed and I'm not interested in your one-issue voting.'
Behar fired back: 'I don't care what you're interested in. I'm talking!'
McCain countered: 'Well I don't care what you're interested in either, Joy!' before Whoopi quickly called for a commercial break.
Behar was then seen slamming her cue cards on the table and turning to sound off on McCain just as producers cut to break. Producers muted Behar's microphone so that her expletives would not be heard on air.
But the source told DailyMail.com that Behar threw her hands in the air, yelled 'My God!' and 'Get this b***h under control.'
'If this s**t doesn't stop I'm quitting this damn show. I can't take this much more,' Behar allegedly fumed.
