On Monday, the UK Daily Mail reported that “The View” co-host Joy Behar threw a temper tantrum and threatened to quit the show if “entitled b***h” (her description, not ours) Meghan McCain didn’t quit challenging her.
Newsbusters provided a partial transcript of the discussion prior to her outburst:
BEHAR: I want to say one thing about him that was not picked up really because as a candidate he said, “those who think we’re powerless to do anything about the greenhouse effect are forgetting about the White House effect. “ then he signed into law the clean air act amendment of 1990, one of the most sweeping environmental statutes ever. This president that we have now is trying to unravel everything that he did and Obama did, and if I ever become a one-issue voter, it will be about pollution and the greenhouse effect and the fact that —
MCCAIN: Can we focus on the president, please. I don’t want to talk about Trump when we’re in a moment, we’re honoring a great president—
BEHAR: Wait a second please. I want to talk about the difference–
MCCAIN: I’m not interested in your one issue voter–
BEHAR: I don’t care what you’re interested in. I’m talking!
“Well I don’t care what you’re interested in either, Joy!” McCain said. At that point, Whoopi Goldberg called for a commercial break.
The Daily Mail then added:
Behar’s (sic) was then seen slamming her cue cards on the table and turning to sound off on McCain, right before producers cut to break. Producers muted Behar’s microphone so that her expletives would not be heard on air.
But the source told DailyMail.com that Behar threw her hands in the air, yelled ‘My God!’ and ‘Get this b***h under control.’
‘If this s**t doesn’t stop I’m quitting this damn show. I can’t take this much more,’ Behar allegedly fumed.
Producers ran to the stage in an attempt to deescalate the situation, but Behar continued to rant, the source said.
‘I’ve tolerated a lot of s**t on this show but I’m at my wits’ end with this entitled b***h. Enough already! Enough already! I’m not playing nice any longer,’ Behar shouted, despite the studio audience being able to hear it all.
McCain said she simply wanted to focus on Bush, but apparently Behar wanted to use the time to trash Trump.
The Daily Mail further noted:
While hair and makeup people attempted to groom both of the hosts, producers tried to calm Behar down before returning from the commercial break.
‘Everyone was frantic. The last thing they wanted was for Joy to walk off the show. She’s done that before. Remember the Bill O’Reilly situation? She appeared just as disgusted as she did that day and they only had two minutes to contain this explosion on set and get everyone positioned to return for the next live segment. It was utter chaos on set,’ the source said.
Neither woman spoke to each other after the live show, the Daily Mail said. A source told the outlet: “This isn’t the last you’ve seen of these two coming to blows. You can trust and believe that.”
