Jeannine Pirro went on a vulgar rant on “The View” and then lied about it, saying that Whoppi Goldberg spit on her and threw her out of the building, while using the F-word. Here’s Goldberg’s version of the facts. Daily Beast:
.@WhoopiGoldberg clears up what happened after our Jeanine Pirro interview: “I rarely get stirred up — but I got stirred up…and I did apologize for getting hot.”

Goldberg confirmed reports that Pirro was “upset when she got here” because anti-Trump Republican strategist Ana Navarro was filling in for equally anti-Trump liberal co-host Joy Behar. She also said that despite the fact that she ended the segment with a shouted, “Say goodbye, I’m done!” she did not cut the interview short. “It ended when it was supposed to,” Goldberg said.
“She then called everybody at the table a name I cannot repeat on TV and said it in front of the audience,” Goldberg added of Pirro.
Indeed, a witness—who asked not to be further identified—told The Daily Beast that after the segment ended and Goldberg walked off-stage, Pirro ripped off her microphone while the crew members hovered around her and she shouted, “Those cocksuckers! This is exactly what I told them would happen.”
What kind of language would you expect from somebody who idolizes a man who advocates “grab ’em by the pussy?”
Then, of course, Pirro talked about this on her own show, with none other than Kellyanne Conway, who naturally commended Pirro for the way she conducted herself on the view. Pirro blamed the entire incident on Trump Derangement Syndrome:
“Should I be angry? I suppose I should,” Pirro told her viewers. “But in the end, this isn’t about me.” She added that she would happily return to The View if they will have her, because “no one intimidates me” and thanked Goldberg for helping make her new book number-one on Amazon.
“The View was just a microcosm of what’s going on in this country,” Pirro added, zeroing in on so-called “Trump Derangement Syndrome” and the “vitriol” against the president from the Left that’s “so palpable it’s become frightening.”
Towards the end of the show, after her guest Kellyanne Conway commended Pirro for the way she comported herself on The View, Pirro spoke directly to Goldberg.
This may seem like nothing but a cat fight between two celebrities but it goes deeper than that. Goldberg is telling the truth and she’s rational and admits her faults. Pirro uses her platform for propaganda and she lies. She admits nothing wrong. The two women, at least in this one incident, typify the difference between the two political tribes in this country, and truthfully, which one of them is suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome?
