Judge Jeanine Pirro appeared on The View Thursday to “sell” her new book “Liars, Leakers, and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy,” and host Whoopi Goldberg whose birth name is Caryn Johnson went crazy (but more about the stage name later). No really! Whoopi screamed at the Judge on-air, tossed her off the show, and then cursed the judge like an angry sailor.
Judge I need to fill in the people who didn’t watch The View since you lived through it, you can skip to the part that reads “Which brings me to the stage name.”
Whoopi started with an anti-Trump opening statement. But the meltdown began with Ana Navarro asking a question
You just said you’re not an ideologue. Let me ask you a question. Do you think Donald Trump embraces and embodies conservative ideology? He used to have a different position on pro-choice. He is imposing tariffs. He’s against globalism. Do you think he’s an ideologue that is faithful to conservative policies?
After denying that she was there to talk about what type of conservative Trump was, Whoopi demanded, “You have to answer the question!” Pirro explained how better off the country was with Trump as president.
“You want to talk about Donald Trump? You tell me what metric in the country is worse off? Unemployment is lower than it’s been for 50 years. Minorities. Hispanics. African Americans,” she started to list off as the table erupted. Whoopi shook her head and told her to “Stop, stop.”
“Hate crimes are what’s up!” Navarro quipped as Hostin tried to claim that Obama was the one responsible for the country’s current economy. Pirro rebutted that claim.
“The GDP under Obama was barely 1. We’re going up to 4,” she shot back. Meghan McCain urged the importance for the hosts to understand why Trump was still garnering high support among Republicans.
“I also think it’s important as we said. 89% of the Republicans support him. He still has a huge popularity in the country. If Democrats don’t get their you know what together, he’ll certainly be re-elected,” she warned.
