Meghan McCain defends Whoopi Goldberg following yelling match with Jeanine Pirro
The View's Meghan McCain stopped by Watch What Happens Live Wednesday night, where she was quick to defend her co-host Whoopi Goldberg when asked about the explosive fight that took place between Goldberg and Fox News host Jeanine Pirro last Thursday. "I can't get a bagel without someone asking me about this incident, which is kinda crazy," said McCain. "I will say that, I'm a conservative. I love having everybody on the show, anyone who wants to come on I'm happy to have on. I mean, within reason. And, it's really hard not to love Whoopi Goldberg." McCain continued to explain why she loves Goldberg, saying, "She's a really fair, open person. She's been very open to my politics and I just thought it was unfortunate that judge Jeanine didn't see what I see in her everyday. She's a wonderful co-host. She's very open to hearing the other side." In case you missed it, when Pirro made an appearance on The View last week to promote her new book, the interview took a turn for the worse when Pirro accused Goldberg of suffering from "Trump Derangement Syndrome." The argument quickly escalated between the two and when Pirro told Goldberg, " Whoopi, you know what’s horrible? When people who shouldn’t be here end up murdering the children of American citizens,” Goldberg abruptly ended the interview after telling Pirro, “You know what’s horrible? When the President of the United States whips up people to beat the hell out of people! Say goodbye!” Although Pirro is not likely to be invited back to The View anytime soon, WWHL's Andy Cohen already has an idea for another show that she'd be perfect for. "She could be a Jersey housewife," Cohen told McCain, but then quickly second-guessed himself as he ended with "She actually might be too nutty to be on the Jersey housewives."
