While discussing Sen. Amy Klobuchar announcing she was running for president, McCain kept trying to jump into the conversation by nastily saying, “Can I say something now? Joy, is that okay? Do I have your permission to speak now on Amy Klobuchar, we’re all good?” She started babbling then stopped and said, “By all means, keep going Joy.”
Behar clapped back with, “No, if you’re going to have a hissy fit, we can’t continue.” McCain looked like her head was going to explode. McCain barely spoke for the rest of the show.
The two have been bickering for months. Back in December, according to The Daily Mail, when Whoopi abruptly cut to commercial after one of their spats, Behar yelled in front of the audience, “Get this b***h under control. If this s**t doesn’t stop I’m quitting this damn show. I can’t take this much more.” Reportedly, producers jumped on stage but the New Yorker wasn’t done, she added, “I’ve tolerated a lot of s**t on this show but I’m at my wits’ end with this entitled b***h. Enough already! Enough already! I’m not playing nice any longer.”
Allegedly, network executives met with both of them in their dressing room after the show. No word on what was said but clearly McCain hasn’t learned to respect her elders.
In case you missed that moment in December, McCain was demanding that the only topic of the day should be praising President George H. W. Bush, who died at 94 years old. However, Behar was pointing out Bush’s record on global warming (he signed the Clean Air Act Amendment of 1990), which Trump has been rolling back.
Hopefully, Meghan McCain will learn to not come for Joy Behar. She is the only original host from the show and has no issue shutting down people.
