Joy Behar And Meghan McCain Got Into It On “The View”

The View hasn’t had a good brawl since Whoopi Goldberg battled intelligence with that “rape rape” comment. Joy Behar and Meghan McCain were generous enough to give the viewing audience an exciting callback to the “Rosie O’Donnell prepping to devour Elisabeth Hasselbeck“-era by throwing down on Friday’s episode.

As Uproxx points out, things got heated when the The View vixens were back-and-forthing about the recent Rob Porter scandal. Porter is the now former White House staff secretary who quit when his two ex-wives went public with accusations of domestic abuse. The discussion turned to how much White House Chief of Staff John Kelly might have known about the situation before it made the news. Joy and Meghan were actually arguing FOR the same side at first, but Joy’s snark over the situation got under John McCain’s little girl’s skin.

“We shouldn’t make levity of this, we’re talking about the abuse of a woman,” McCain interjected. “Look at that photo, you shouldn’t be laughing.”

“We”re talking about Kelly, we’re not talking about abuse right now,” Behar shot back. “Don’t say something like that.”

Meghan felt that Joy was being catty about her side of the political fence. Hint: It’s the one with the shitty president. She let Joy know that she was offending her as a Republican. Joy responded with a heartfelt apology. That was sarcasm.

“As a Democrat, I’m offended by Republicans,” Behar offered.

Co-host Sunny Hostin managed to defuse the tension. For about a minute.

A few minutes later, while discussing how Jared Kushner doesn’t have White House security clearance, McCain turned it back around.

“You’re offended by Republicans, all Republicans, offended by me sitting here?” she asked. “Pretty much,” Behar retorted. “I’m offended by a party that backs a racist.”

A truly irritated Meghan responded by echoing how many of us feel when having to watch The View whilst waiting for the doctor or the completion of an oil change.

Exasperated, McCain rolled her eyes and exclaimed, “Oh my god!”

UpRoxx captured exactly how Sunny Hostin felt in the middle of this.

Meghan endeavored to calm everyone’s breasts and appealed to the spirit of bipartisanship. She forgot that, if you’re not on Joy Behar’s squawky opinion train, you’re right out in front of it.

“I was actually looking forward to talking about this in a way that is respectful and not being told that just because I’m a Republican I’m offending you,” McCain continued. “We are not going to move the needle one way or the other just throwing out platitudes and hubris like that, and I would like to have a real conversation about this.”

Joy was unmoved, especially when Meghan plugged an upcoming appearance on CNN’s The Van Jones Show. It should be noted that shrieking shit-stirrer Nancy Grace was on the panel and came off looking calm and composed in this sitch. When Nancy Grace is quietly raising her eyebrows at you…

After some more back and forth, McCain said once again that she looked forward to having the conversation with Jones on Saturday and Behar sniped back, “Good,” before cutting to what must have been the most awkward commercial break ever.

You can watch the exchange below. Keep in mind that no fights on The View will ever match the heady days of Rosie O’Donnell trying to spread BBQ sauce on Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s empty head before trying to eat her.

  1. Gotta agree with loud mouthed Behar on this one! I was saying today that any woman who works for Trump just must not love herself. And any man who would vote for him again must have a seriously fucked up world view about women/gender.

    Was this lady deliberately modelled after “Tootsie”?

    Could be because Cletus from Alabama thinks there were dinosaurs on noahs ark. Dumbing down US citizens means Mohammed will be splitting the atoms and performing the brain surgeries,

    I’m not even trying to be funny or sarcastic, but I thought this show was cancelled a long time ago. I must be have been having a case of the Mandela Effect…and it was really nice while it lasted.

  5. Man-Bun Ken Doll ✓

    Yea…white christians just cant catch a break….Not letting them discriminate against us, gays getting married, not letting them rape toddlers, not saying “Merry Christmas” if we dont want to….OMG!!!

    I really does depend on where you are from. I live in LA and I dont get racism at all. In LA we are all integrated. Blacks, whites, mexicans, asians, jews….we all live in the same neighborhoods. The entire city is hot property value. Good jobs. Huge population. All of it is gentrified or soon will be. It is the southern states where the suburbs are the nice white bread, fancy school areas and the cities are shitholes is where racism thrives.

  7. totally.

  8. Man-Bun Ken Doll ✓

    Yes. We get it. You are a republican.

    When John Mccain dies, it will be the liberals who will have kind words about him. The Trumpanzees will laugh and throw a party. And those are the people she supports. Why??? So rich people dont have to pay taxes. She is one fucked up woman.

  11. Man-Bun Ken Doll ✓

    AMEN!! Since this website rags on celebs for their basic silliness and self importance, it has been a magnet for the proRussian white nationalists who HATE how liberal Hollywood is and will do anything to destroy it. I guess they dont realize that Trump is a game show host, reality tv slime….basically KING of the dipshits.

  12. Man-Bun Ken Doll ✓

    Go back to fucking Breitbart you piece of WHITE Nationalist shit. Shove your “race card” crap up your ass. You are NOTHING BUT race. You are all about being white and all about hating anyone who isnt white. They are everything that is wrong in your pathetic miserable life. This website isnt a white nationalist website. We might rag on celebs but not for the same reasons you jealous little pissants do. Freaking pedophile party.

  13. No. I pay my fair share. Then again, I’m not a racist, traitor-supporting Republican.

  14. Man-Bun Ken Doll ✓

    IDK….I think republicans hate liberals for reasons they are completely unaware of, they are just taught to by their small town parents or the idiots at the bar or church…OMG!!! Gay People!!! OMG!!! Brown People!!!! Whatever….Next election, they’ll just vote for another republican. Those people would rather vote for pedophiles and wife beaters than a liberal.

  15. Good God. What a sanctimonious twat waffle. Why is this shit show still on the air? I am embarrassed to say that my MIL religiously watches this crap.

  16. So does that make her husband the possum of politics?

  17. newcitycoast

    She’s an Eva Braun.

    At least the other one (hassleblech!) was a thorny banshee that could be tko’d with a knuckle to the temple, this one looks like a bull ready to break through walls and crush cars.

  20. Republicans are a party of racism, misogyny and general awfulness. If you don’t like being associated with that sweetie, maybe leave that awful party. Otherwise you deserve any shit thrown your way.

  21. I don’t normally rag on people’s looks, but why do people say she’s attractive? Her eyes are way too small for her face, her nose looks like she’s trying not to smell DT’s farts, and her lips look like a couple of pink slugs are racing across, or like those plastic lips from the party store. And she (he) paid to look like that!

  22. Joy’s hair, though… She needs to let her natural curls be free.

  23. Ain’t she just.

  24. wait isnt that everyone?
