Joy Behar Reportedly Threatens to Quit View After Clash With ‘Entitled’ Meghan McCain: ‘Get This B*tch Under Control!’
On Monday, we posted about a fiery clash on The View between Joy Behar and Meghan McCain which — even by the show’s normal standard for heated debate — could only be considered intense. According to a report, the real fireworks began after the show went to break — leading one of the hosts to threaten to quit.
The Daily Mail claims that Joy Behar continued to fume as the show cut to commercial on Monday, and said she would leave the show if “this shit doesn’t stop.”
“I can’t take this much more,” Behar reportedly said.
Behar took aim at McCain — whom she reportedly called an “entitled bitch.”
“Get this bitch under control!” Behar reportedly said. She added, “I’ve tolerated a lot of shit on this show but I’m at my wits’ end with this entitled bitch. Enough already! Enough already! I’m not playing nice any longer.”
In the on air portion of the clash, which can be viewed above, Behar can be seen shouting at McCain even after her microphone was shut off. The friction bubbled to the surface when Behar invoked President Donald Trump during a discussion of former President George H.W. Bush‘s legacy — over McCain’s objection.
“I’m not interested [in debating Trump].” McCain said.
“I don’t care what you’re interested in!” Behar shot back.
“Well I don’t care what you’re interested in!” McCain replied, before colleague Whoopi Goldberg threw to commercial.
