Fox’s Howard Kurtz Slams Whoopi Goldberg for Pirro Brouhaha: She ‘Was Out of Control’

The Thursday clash between Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro and The View host Whoopi Goldberg prompted Fox News’ Howie Kurtz to declare Goldberg was “out of control. ”

With a chyron reading “Pirro kicked off The View” at the bottom of the screen,  Fox News’ Trish Regan asked Kurtz his thoughts about the clash.

“Whoopi Goldberg was out of control clearly,” Kurtz began. “You could have played more of the clip showing her screaming at her on the air.”

He continued on: “What did The View think was going to happen? You invite Judge Jeanine, she is a fiery supporter of President Trump. You want some fireworks.”

Then after suggesting it was all for ratings, he added: “To berate her that way, announce you’re kicking her off and then yell at her offstage, just shows a lack of class. I can’t think of a better phrase, a lack of class.”

Regan then suggested a lack of tolerance and an unwillingness to listen to the right may have been at work.

“Maybe that is why Judge Jeanine said Trump Derangement Syndrome, which made Whoopi even more deranged,” Kurtz chimed in. “But you are right, we can have passionate debates. But that was just ugly.”
