Tempers flared on the set of ABC's The View after Judge Jeanine Pirro told co-host Whoopi Goldberg she was suffering from "Trump Derangement Syndrome".
Judge Pirro, a FOX News pundit, appeared on The View to promote her new book, “Liars, Leakers, and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy".
But rather than allow her to promote her book, Goldberg and the rest of the co-hosts pressed Pirro to defend her staunch support of President Trump.
Tensions escalated when Pirro, who is not a doctor, diagnosed Goldberg with "Trump Derangement Syndrome," an explosive disorder characterized by angry outbursts and unprovoked attacks on President Trump and his supporters.
Golberg clapped back, “Listen, I don’t have ‘Trump derangement.’ Let me tell you what I have. I’m tired of people starting a conversation with ‘Mexicans are liars and rapists.'"
She continued: “Listen, I’m 62 years old. There have been a lot of people in office that I didn’t agree with. But I have never, ever seen anything like this. I have never seen anybody whip up such hate. I have never seen anybody be so dismissive.
"What I suffer from is the inability to figure out how to fix this. That’s my issue."
Pirro ignored Goldberg's outburst and, saying, “You know what’s horrible? When people who shouldn’t be here end up murdering the children of American citizens!"
That infuriated Goldberg, who replied, “What is horrible is when the President of the United States whips up people to beat the hell out of people! Say good-bye. I’m done!"
The show cut to a commercial, and when it returned, Pirro was not on the set.
Goldberg apologized to her co-hosts for losing her cool.
“You saw me do something I very rarely do,” Goldberg said. “You saw me lose my cool. And I’m not proud of it and I don’t like it.”
Hours later, video leaked of the verbal altercation between Goldberg and Pirro backstage.
“Get the f*** Out! Get the f*** Out of my building!” Goldberg is heard screaming to Pirro.
