Meghan McCain Sparks Backlash as Whoopi Goldberg Forced to Cut 'The View' Because of Her Yelling
On Monday’s episode, “The View’s” co-hosts got into an argument while discussing the findings of the Mueller report. Whoopi Goldberg was forced to cut to a commercial to settle tensions.
Now social media has attacked Meghan McCain for her part in the argument.
“The View’s” co-host Joy Behar got into an altercation with Meghan McCain after their conversation touched on Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller's report. The report looked into whether President Donald Trump had colluded with Russia during the 2016 election campaign.
During their conversation, McCain stated:
"I always took Trump seriously. You can go back and check the receipts when I worked at Fox and when I worked on my radio show. I always took Trump seriously. This mess that we all got ourselves into, I blame the left as much as the right, and the demonizing of all conservatives in this country, all Trump supporters in every way. You're getting him re-elected."
She also insisted that the report had found that Trump "didn't collude" with Russia. McCain and Behar began speaking over each other as they each tried to get their points across.

Sunny Hostin added into the conversation by trying to list all the alleged crimes that the president had committed according to the report. However, Whoopi Goldberg was forced to cut to a commercial as the conversation became heated.
I understand that people have different views but @MeghanMcCain is not letting anyone speak if they don’t agree with her. She will make me stop watching this show— Mercedes Frazier (@MsBenz62) April 23, 2019
Social media users shared their displeasure at the way McCain conducted herself by yelling at Behar. A Twitter user named Angela Asher noted how McCain made her “immediately change the channel” when watching the ABC show.
“The View” airs weekdays at 11 a.m. ET on ABC.
At one point during the debate, Behar told McCain that people "[were] afraid the Russians will steal the election again.” McCain dismissed this view as “irrational.”
