Whoopi Goldberg orders Judge Jeanine to "get the f**k out of the building!" after shocking display of outrage on The View
Whoopi Goldberg and Jeanine Pirro got into an explosive argument backstage on The View on Thursday — after an intense on-the-air exchange got even more heated behind-the-scenes.
On Thursday, Whoopi Goldberg lost her temper in an episode of The View while debating Judge Jeanine Pirro about President Donald J. Trump. Upon being cornered by liberal co-hosts from all sides towards the end of the show, Pirro elected to use cold, hard facts against the emotional contingent. She spoke about some of the notable achievements of the Trump administration, including lowering of the unemployment rate for the first time in 50 years for 'minorities, Hispanics, and African Americans'.
However, Goldberg did not like it one bit and, along with co-host Sunny Hostin, immediately resorted to crediting former president Barack Obama for any accomplishment of the current commander-in-chief.
Pirro retorted back saying, "You're suffering from Trump derangement in this room."
As soon as the judge uttered those words, the liberal segment were "triggered" (to describe it better) by Pirro's statement. It caused a huge argument backstage and led to her being kicked out of the building itself, Jeanine later revealed on The Sean Hannity Show.
Previously, View co-host and Trump critic Meghan McCain thought Pirro's "Trump derangement" quote was directed at her, to which she said she wasn't deranged. Pirro then clarified and pointed at Goldberg, who lost her cool and stopped the show.
"Did you just point at me? I don't have Trump derangement, let me tell you what I have," Goldberg fired back. "I am tired of people starting a conversation with, 'Mexicans are liars and rapists.' Listen, I'm 62 years old, there have been a lot of people in office that I don't agree with, but I have never ever seen anything like this."
She continued: "I've never seen anyone whip up such hate, I've never seen anyone be so dismissive and clearly you don't watch this show, so you don't know that I don't suffer from that. What I suffer from is the inability to figure out how to fix this, that's my issue."
Then ensued a screaming war of words between Goldberg and Pirro, with the judge declaring: "You know what's horrible? When people who shouldn't be here end up murdering children of American citizens."
But Goldberg couldn't stand being embarrassed at her own show. She immediately shouted back, "What's horrible is when the president of the United States whips up people to beat the hell out of people," and bid Pirro goodbye.
"Say goodbye, bye! I'm done," Goldberg said.
Pirro was not seen at the table after the show abruptly cut to a commercial break.
In the closing moments of the show, Goldberg realized she unnecessarily flew off the handle and tried to save face by apologizing to the audience as well as viewers.
"So you saw me do something I very rarely do. I very rarely lose my cool, I'm not proud of it and I don't like it," she said. "I also don't like being accused of being hysterical, because that's one of the things I try not to be on this show." Having said that, Pirro told The Sean Hannity Show that the drama had not ceased after the segment was cut off. It reportedly got worse after Goldberg confronted her backstage.
"When I went off the stage, I’m walking downstairs and I said something like, 'Whoopi I fought for victims my whole life' and she came at me as I was leaving and said 'F you' in my face - literally spitting at me - 'F you, get the F out of this building'," she claimed.
"I said to her, 'did you just say that?' She said 'that’s what I said, get the F out of this building' and she was screaming at me, and I’m walking out of the building like a dog who was just kicked off."
On the Fox News segment with Hannity, Pirro asserted that although Goldberg's treatment of her was "horrific", it was "typical of what is going on in this country". "The left, they invite you on to talk, they then won’t let you talk, they throw you off the show and then they throw you out of the building," she said.
"I said in the first segment – and again I have to look at it – I said: 'we need to start talking about this stuff'. "We need to start recognizing that it doesn’t matter if it’s Donald Trump or if it’s a Democrat running. We’ve got to have a Department of Justice and FBI that is not corrupt. I’ll tell you Sean, I’ve been a prosecutor, a judge for 30 years. I’ve sat on murder trials – I’d go toe-to-toe with anyone. I’ve tried murder cases, I’ve gone against drug cartels… I have never been treated like that in my life. I was stunned."
According to Page Six, sources said that Pirro reportedly put her finger in Goldberg's face and said she has "done more for abused women than you will ever do" as she walked past her.
Whoopi then retorted by telling her "f**k you" and "get the f**k out of the building!"
