The View’s Joy Behar tells Meghan McCain: ‘I did not miss you. Zero’ — WATCH
The View co-hosts Joy Behar and Meghan McCain got into a shouting match that turned personal on Tuesday (Jan. 05, 2021) over which party is in a stronger position heading into the new year.
“Let the Republicans fight amongst themselves. On the one hand you have the Republicans, on the other you have the seditionists,” Behar said in an apparent reference to GOP efforts to overturn the results of the November election. “On the Democrats, you have the progressives versus the moderates, which is de rigueur as they say, it’s what it always is. … The Republicans are in much more trouble right now.”
“Are you kidding me?!” McCain interrupted, pointing to overblown conflicts between Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
“Excuse me, am I done? I’m not done!” Behar shot back as McCain accused her of pushing a “completely inaccurate” narrative. When Behar continued to complain that she was speaking, McCain tried to defuse the tension by saying, “You missed me so much, Joy. You missed me so much when I was on maternity leave. You missed fighting with me.”
“I did not. I did not miss you,” Behar said with a straight face. “Zero.”
At first McCain seemed to think she was joking, but when she realized that comment was dead serious, she replied, “You know, that’s so nasty. I was teasing because you said something rude.” As moderator Whoopi Goldberg tried her best to shut it down, McCain added once more, “That’s so rude!”
The segment only devolved into chaos from there until Goldberg was forced to end it by telling viewers: “We, believe it or not, will be right back.”
