The View’s Joy Behar Tells Meghan McCain: ‘If You’re Going to Have a Hissy Fit, We Can’t Continue’

If you are a semi-regular viewer of The View, you probably know that co-hosts Joy Behar and Meghan McCain have a frosty relationship, with the two generally battling over their ideological and political differences. Monday morning brought yet another face-off between the outspoken colleagues.

During a short segment on Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar firing back at President Trump for mocking her presidential announcement in the snow, Behar sniped at McCain for interrupting her as she was reading off the news story.

“Can I get through this, please?” the liberal comedienne told the former Fox News personality.

After other panelists weighed in on the Klobuchar-Trump back-and-forth, McCain snarkily asked if she could have “permission to speak now on Amy Klobuchar.” As she was getting ready to reel off her points, she looked at Behar and stopped.

“Alright, nope! By all means, keep going Joy,” McCain complained.

Behar immediately snapped back, cooly telling the conservative commentator: “If you’re going to have a hissy fit, we can’t continue.”

As the audience uncomfortably laughed, McCain starred down Behar for a few seconds, her arms crossed. Eventually, Behar cut through the standoff and moved on to another story.

This testy exchange comes a couple months after the two got into a heated on-air argument that carried over into the break. According to reports, Behar threatened to quit unless the producers could get McCain under control, calling her an “entitled bitch.” Meanwhile, McCain contended that she didn’t know why Behar was “so upset,” saying she just wanted the host to focus on the death of George H.W. Bush without bringing Trump into it.
