Whoopi Goldberg was not here for Judge Jeanine Pirro and her antics on The View today. According to reports, after an intense on-the-air exchange, the two got into an even more explosive argument backstage, ending with Goldberg allegedly shouting, “F–k you, get the f–k out!”
A source told Page Six the confrontation went down when the two crossed paths backstage. “Jeanine tried telling her she’s fought for victims her whole life.” That’s when “Whoopi got in her face and said that they’ve known each other a long time, but still, ‘F–k you, get the f–k out of this building.’ Jeanine looked stunned.”
Another source said, “Jeanine could have walked by her. There was one more segment to do. She could have walked by her easily, she put her finger in her face and said, ‘I’ve done more for abused women than you will ever do’ and that’s when Whoopi said, ‘You and I have never had a problem,’ before everything else was said.”
Apparently the President Trump supporter and Fox News host was already upset that anti-Trump CNN contributor Ana Navarro was filling in for Joy Behar. She made it a point to let producers know she was not pleased before the show started, but still ended up doing her segment with Navarro.
Pirro was on the show to promote her new book, “Liars, Leakers, and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy.” For some reason she thought it was a good idea to say Goldberg suffered from “Trump Derangement Syndrome” and Goldberg promptly snatched her edges. “I have never seen anybody whip up such hate,” Goldberg responded of Trump.
A shouting match started with Pirro declaring, “You know what’s horrible? When people who shouldn’t be here end up murdering the children of American citizens!” and Goldberg shot back, “What is horrible is when the president of the United States whips up people to beat the hell out of people … Say goodbye. I’m done!”
Goldberg apologized to the audience for the on-air blowup, saying, “You saw me do something I very rarely do … I very rarely lose my cool and I’m not proud of it. I don’t like it. But I also don’t like being accused of being hysterical because that is one of the things I try not to be on this show.”
