Yesterday, Jeanine Pirro appeared on ABC’s popular morning show “The View” to promote her new book, “Liars, Leakers, and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy.”
According to sources, Pirro “was upset that Ana was there because she wasn’t told until the last minute. Ana is 24-7 anti-Trump. Jeanine wasn’t yelling, but you could tell they felt like the segment was being hijacked by shoving in an anti-Fox, anti-Trump person.”
“When Jeanine arrived on set she was looking for a fight and refusing to be on with Ana, demanding [Ana] not be in the segment,” an insider said. “[Pirro] was yelling at [‘The View’] executive producer and her staff like, ‘You need to handle this.'”
It didn’t take long for the situation to escalate, though. In an exchange between Whoopi Goldberg and Pirro, the “Justice with Judge Jeanine” host accused Goldberg of having “Trump Derangement Syndrome.”
Goldberg responded of Trump, “I have never seen anybody whip up such hate.”
A shouting match started with Pirro exclaiming, “You know what’s horrible When people who shouldn’t be here end up murdering the children of American citizens!”
Goldberg, unmoved, retorted, “What is horrible is when the president of the United States whips up people to beat the hell out of people Say goodbye. I’m done!”
And just like that Goldberg booted Pirro from the panel. However, it didn’t end there. Pirro acted as if Goldberg had committed the ultimate offense.
After the segment, the “discussion” continued backstage when Pirro crossed paths with Goldberg again.
Insiders said, “Jeanine tried telling her she’s fought for victims her whole life.” That’s when “Whoopi got in her face and said that they’ve known each other a long time, but still, ‘F**k you, get the f**k out of this building.’ Jeanine looked stunned.”
Another source told us, “Jeanine could have walked by her. There was one more segment to do. She could have walked by her easily, she put her finger in her face and said, ‘I’ve done more for abused women than you will ever do’ and that’s when Whoopi said, ‘You and I have never had a problem,’ before everything else was said.”
The show’s producers and Goldberg reached out to Pirro to have a conversation about what took place but reps for the judge declined to comment.
Goldberg apologized to the audience for her reaction, saying, “You saw me do something I very rarely do I very rarely lose my cool and I’m not proud of it. 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.”
