Whoopi Goldberg Has Had It With Meghan McCain: ‘I Don’t Care That You Don’t Care!’
The View went completely off the rails this morning during another on-air tirade brought to you by View co-host Meghan McCain.
During Thursday’s opening segment, McCain took aim at President Joe Biden for his reprimand of CNN correspondent Kaitlan Collins on Wednesday.
Collins had incorrectly stated Biden was optimistic that Russian President Vladimir Putin would alter his provocative behavior following their high-profile meeting on Wednesday, a statement which drew a quick and sharp response from the president, who quickly corrected the record.
“Part of my problem with the Kaitlan Collins moment, just because Trump was so bad it doesn’t absolve Biden’s bad behavior,” McCain stated. “What [Biden] did was 100 percent Trump.”
McCain claimed “we would be screaming at the top of our lungs” if former president Donald Trump had done the same thing to a journalist.
“I have heard many people in this town, in D.C., talking that the press is getting sick of this, of how censored he is, who he can and cannot talk to,” McCain said. “And then spouting off to her in a way that I found not only unbecoming and ridiculous, but to do it in a foreign country, it was particularly bizarre.”
She then ripped Biden for continuing to “talk smack” about the press after he apologized to Collins, adding that it’s the “press’ job to speak truth to power” whole bemoaning that Biden has “gotten a pass” from the media.
“It is in no one’s best interest to treat him like it is state TV,” McCain added.
“To just comment on that, yeah, the thing that I never saw Trump do was apologize to anybody. And I will take it,” Goldberg noted before McCain cut her off.
“With all due respect, I don’t care,” McCain fired back.
“Just let me finish what I’m saying,” Goldberg responded as McCain continued talking over her. “Well, with all due respect, I don’t care if he’s apologizing. He just embarrassed himself,” the conservative co-host exclaimed.
“I don’t care that you don’t care! Just hear what I’m saying,” Goldberg fired back.
“Well, I don’t care that you don’t care! So now we’re even,” McCain shouted back as she snapped her fingers and shook her head.
“Well, then, good, Meghan. You can be how you always are,” Goldberg shot back.
“You can be how you always are,” McCain shouted while waving her finger.

After the break, Golberg and McCain apologized for their on-air behavior.
“I want to apologize because I was rude,” Goldberg said. “I didn’t need to say what I said. I apologize. That’s not the way I want to behave at work. I apologize, Meghan.”
McCain replied: “I apologize too, Whoopi.”
