Meghan McCain opened up after Whoopi Goldberg told her to shut up during Monday's episode of the daytime talk show The View.
The two co-hosts argued briefly about President Trump's impeachment process during Monday's episode when Whoopi, 64, snapped and told Meghan, "Girl, please stop talking. Stop talking right now!"
A stunned Meghan responded, "No problem. I won't talk for the rest of the show."
The tense exchange sparked heated debates on Twitter.com, as viewers took sides. Many said Whoopi was out of line to disrespect her co-host who has every right to her opinion.

Meghan took to Twitter.com to defend herself, saying:
"[Democrats] and [Republicans] alike need to confront the ugly truth: both parties are failing to be impartial jurors. I won't be quiet, even if the reality reflects poorly on the entire political establishment. I have a responsibly to speak for the 50% that feels media doesn't represent them."
"Pointing out things that are true is part of my job even if it angers people and even if it's politically inconvenient."
She then tweeted a series of polls, noting that 50% of Americans want Trump impeached.
"Pretending half the country doesn't exist won't make them disappear. The culture war is real, and Americans who aren't part of the overwhelmingly anti-conservative media deserve to have their views represented."
On Tuesday morning, Meghan, 35, posted a GIF from the HBO series "Games of Thrones". She captioned the GIF "Good morning - to all the fellow conservative 'girls' who won't be quiet."

Question: Did Whoopi have the right to silence her co-host?
.@WhoopiGoldberg and @MeghanMcCain address heated comments on Monday's show: "We're really passionate — this is our jobs," Goldberg says. "Sometimes it goes off the rails — and it does."
"We fight like we're family — it's all good," McCain adds. https://t.co/f8u2wc159S pic.twitter.com/3CNUbWgiuV
