It's a new year at The View, but the same tense face-offs between Joy Behar and Megan McCain still continue. On Monday’s show, Behar took the helm as moderator since Whoopi Goldberg was at home recovering from pneumonia. The ladies were attempting to discuss Sen. Amy Klobuchar's announcement of her 2020 presidential campaign when they got into a tense exchange.
Klobuchar's announcement came while she was in the middle of a blizzard in her homestate of Minnesota, which was mocked by President Donald Trump on Twitter. He claimed it was "Bad timing" for her discussing "proudly of fighting global warming while standing in a virtual blizzard of snow, ice and freezing temperatures." Behar tried to give the backstory behind the tweet and Klobuchar's clapback, McCain snarked,
This is real.
which prompted Behar to reply,
Can I get through this please?
Behar read Klobuchar's remarks back to Trump saying,
I wonder how your hair would fare in a blizzard?
McCain is heard saying,
So stupid, this whole thing is so stupid!
Co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Abby Huntsman weighed in on if Klobuchar should've responded with insults to Trump, with the conversation going back to McCain. McCain then responded to Behar,
Can I say something now, is that okay?
Behar fired back,
Yes, go ahead, you may now that I've finished.
McCain started to give her thoughts saying,
I have permission to speak now on Amy Klobuchar, we're all good? Okay two quick things, number one, I have friends that were at her announcement.
As McCain proceeds to give her assessment she stops and reacts to something off-camera and says to Behar,
Oh, nope, by all means, keep going Joy!
The stand-up comic responded,
If you're going to have a hissy fit, we can't continue.
The tense moment resulted in McCain being silent throughout the entire segment and reserved for the remainder of the show. Watch the dustup below.
