Chaos erupted on ABC’s “The View” on Friday when cohosts Joy Behar and Meghan McCain got into a heated argument about the the domestic violence accusations against former White House aide Rob Porter.
Us Magazine reported that the super-liberal Behar began mocking White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, claiming that he knew about the allegations.
“Kelly says that he was shocked, shocked I tell you!” she quipped, which clearly irked McCain. The conservative cohost then began to defend the ex-wives of Porter.
“We shouldn’t make levity of this,” she said. “We’re talking the abuse of a woman. I mean — look at that photo! We should not be laughing.”
That’s when Behar lost it.
“We’re talking about Kelly!” she said. “We’re talking about Kelly! We are not talking about abuse right now. Do not say something like that!”
“We are laughing and making levity at a serious —” McCain began.
“We are laughing at him being shocked,” Behar interrupted.
“It is very serious,” McCain said. “And as a Republican, I am offended.”
“As a Democrat, I am offended by Republicans,” Behar barked.
Cohost Sunny Hostin then spoke up to try and get the situation under control.
“Look, ladies, let’s talk about the issue at hand,” Hostin said.
However, chaos quickly erupted once again.
“Well, you’re offended by Republicans, so all Republicans, probably, and everywhere … [you’re] offended by me sitting here, because I’m a Republican!” McCain shouted to Behar.
“I’m offended by a party that backs a racist!” Behar barked back. “Oh, come on. Oh, come on, Meghan! Seventy-two percent of the Republican Party thinks [Donald Trump is] a good role model.”
McCain, however, wasn’t having any of it.
“I’m going on The Van Jones Show on Saturday and 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 said. “We’re not going to move the needle one way or the other just throwing out platitudes and hubris like that. I would like to have a real conversation about it.”
“I don’t know why you’re sitting here saying you’re offended by all Republicans. I’m trying to give you my perspective — ” at which time Behar cut her off once again.
“Because 72 percent of them are backing a racist and somebody who has abused women. That’s why. That’s why!” Behar yelled.
