Following an argument on ‘The View,’ host Whoopi Goldberg reportedly spit at and unleashed a verbal tirade against Judge Jeanine Pirro, demanding she leave the building.
The pair had engaged in a tense exchange on the show Thursday, where Pirro was promoting her book, ‘Liars, Leakers and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy.’
Discussion amongst the ladies pivoted toward the President at one point, and Pirro committed the thought crime of citing facts that show America by “every metric” is better under Donald Trump than it was under Barack Obama.
“Unemployment is lower than it’s been in fifty years,” she stated. “Minorities, Hispanics, African-Americans have jobs … the GDP under Obama was barely one, we’re going up to four.”
At that point, reality seemed to grate at Goldberg and she stepped in. The ensuing fireworks were something to behold.

Things truly escalated when Pirro, responding to something Meghan McCain said, pointed back to Goldberg.
“Did you just point at me?” Goldberg yelled. “Listen, I don’t have Trump derangement [syndrome]. Let me tell you what I have. I’m tired of people starting a conversation with ‘Mexicans are liars and rapists.'”
She added, “I’ve never seen anybody whip up such hate, I’ve never seen anybody be so dismissive, and clearly you don’t watch the show, so you don’t know that [I don’t suffer from Trump derangement].”
“What I suffer from is the inability to figure out how to fix this. That’s my issue.”
“You know what’s horrible?” Pirro shot back. “When people who shouldn’t be here end up murdering the children of American citizens. What’s horrible is we have sanctuary cities.”
“What is horrible is when the president of the United States whips up people to beat the hell out of people,” Goldberg countered, before ranting, “Say goodbye. I’m done.”
The argument was so intense that Goldberg had to address it after the break, but she never offered an apology.
“You saw me do something I very rarely do, I very rarely lose my cool and I’m not proud of it,” she said. “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.”
The rage coming from ‘The View’ host didn’t stop there according to Pirro. Goldberg allegedly launched a spittle-fueled tirade against her backstage after the segment.

It didn’t end there, according to Pirro.
“When I went off the stage, Sean, 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 she said ‘F you’ in my face – literally spitting at me, ‘F you, get the F out of this building,'” Pirro said on Sean Hannity’s radio show.
“And 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.”
Sources at the New York Post confirmed details of the altercation.
“Jeanine tried telling her she’s fought for victims her whole life,” one source described the incident. That’s when “Whoopi got in her face and said that they’ve known each other a long time, but still, ‘F*** you, get the f*** out of this building.'”
“Jeanine looked stunned.”
Whoopi Goldberg’s unhinged reaction is perfectly emblematic of the left’s inability to cope in the era of Trump.
