‘The View’ co-host Joy Behar shuts down Meghan McCain over ‘hissy fit’ during awkward segment
Joy Behar shut down Meghan McCain for having a supposed "Hissy Fit" over Senator Amy Klobuchar on "The View."
Joy Behar and Meghan McCain got into a heated argument on the Monday, February 11, episode of "The View." They were discussing Senator Amy Klobuchar and President Donald Trump and had opposing views.
The two had an awkward exchange which eventually led to Behar shutting McCain down. Behar went on to claim McCain was throwing a "hissy fit."
Klobuchar recently made headlines over the weekend for poking fun at Trump’s hair. Her comments came after the commander-in-chief mocked her presidential bid.
Behar, 76, introduced the topic on Monday to the panel of women, including fellow co-hosts Abby Huntsman and Sunny Hostin and Meghan McCain. McCain immediately tried to interject.
Behar asked her if she could finish what she was saying first but McCain was not ready to give up. She hit back.
“Can I say something now? Is that OK, Joy?” she said sarcastically less than a minute after Behar's request. “Do I have permission to speak now on Amy Klobuchar? We’re all good?”
However, while the former Fox News contributor started sharing her view, her attention drifted off camera. She appeared distracted by Behar who was off-camera at the time.
“No, by all means, keep going, Joy,” McCain said, visibly frustrated.
The comedian immediately hit back saying, “If you’re going to have a hissy fit, we can’t continue.”
McCain seethed angrily and remained silent for the rest discussion. Sources claim McCain is “upset” by the “unfair treatment” from producers and believes they sided with Behar.
This is not the first time the two women have argued on the ABC talk show. Behar and McCain argued over George H.W. Bush in December 2018 after his death.
“The thing about Joy and I is if you extract politics, we are very similar woman,” McCain later told Andy Cohen. “We leave it out on the table, we fight like boxers and then we leave and I’m like, ‘Do you want to get a drink? Are we cool?’ Neither of us like talking about our personal life on air. … She’s really funny and at the end of the day I try and hate her, and I can’t.”
