The View's Whoopi Goldberg Gives Her Side of Pirro Brawl

Jeanine Pirro and Whoopi Goldberg

Pirro said, with Goldberg responding, "What is disgusting is when the president of the United States whips up people to beat the hell out of people ..."

Well, no surprise at all, some sparks flew this morning when Judge Jeanine Pirro-author of Liars, Leakers, and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy-stopped by the show.

Towards the end of the show, Pirro praised Trump with lowering the unemployment rate for the first time in 50 years for "minorities, Hispanics and African Americans" but Goldberg and fellow The View co-host Sunny Hostin said the credit should be given to former president Barack Obama. "And I said to her, 'Did you just say that?' She said, 'That's what I said". Let me tell you what I have", Goldberg quickly responded, "I am exhausted of people starting a conversation with, 'Mexicans are liars and rapists.' Listen, I'm 62 years old.

She added, "Listen, I'm 62 years old". You tell me what metric in this country is worse off?

"I have never seen anybody whip up such hate", Goldberg fired back, with Pirro responding, "You know what's terrible? I never understood triggering". But the fireworks started when Pirro mentioned "Trump Derangement Syndrome" and appeared to point at Goldberg. Listen, I don't have Trump derangement [syndrome].

Pirro snapped back: "You know what's frightful?" But "I don't like being accused of being hysterical", she said.

"Look, I don't mind four against one; I can handle it", she said. Once on-air, Pirro got into an argument with Goldberg.

"What is awful is when the president of the United States whips up people to beat the hell out of people", she said. Yes, I did say it.


Whoopi predicted Pirro will keep this up for a few more days, "because she has a show on Saturday and stuff".

"I said to her, "did you just say that?" While the audience loves this, Pirro can only muster the most forced smile you've seen on The View since, well, probably yesterday.

In an interview with TMZ, the Fox News host didn't express any regrets about her appearance on "The View" but said she didn't appreciate being treated as "less than human".

"Things got hot on the air, (but) I want to clear up what happened afterward", Goldberg said.

After that first shouting match, Whoopi apologized for her behavior. "But you can not come and call people names".

Guest panelists Ana Navarro began to ask Pirro if she thought Trump was an actual conservative, given all those tariffs, his having previously espoused a woman's right to make her own decisions about her body, and so on.

"Welcome back. So, you saw me do something that I rarely do, I rarely lose my cool".
