During a tense conversation about the recent news that an anonymous whistleblower brought forward a complaint alleging an improper interaction between President Donald Trump and a foreign leader, McCain raised her voice and shouted “excuse me” as the other co-hosts talked over each other.
“You know, I’m two feet away. You don’t need to scream at me this way,” Navarro shot back. Seemingly thrown off by Navarro’s reaction, McCain replied, “I don’t know what you just said.”
“I said, ‘Don’t scream at me. I’m two feet away,’” repeated Navarro to the sound of gasps from the audience. Co-host Joy Behar attempted to smooth things over by taking the show to commercial, but McCain could be heard saying, “That’s so rude, Ana.” McCain added, “Welcome back,” referring to Navarro’s absence from the Hot Topics Table this season.
As the show went to break, McCain could be seen storming off set to looks of shock from the studio audience.
After the show, McCain took to Twitter to assure fans she’s doing just fine:

Viewers were divided over the heated exchange between McCain and Navarro. Some tweeted they were happy to see Navarro clap back at McCain’s “excuse me” exclamation:
Anna is so real. I'm glad she checked @MeghanMcCain. She's not afraid of her like the other ladies.— Sally bell (@Sallybe64964873) September 20, 2019
Others defended McCain, and said Navarro should have been more respectful considering she was a guest on the show:
@TheView Anna Navarro comes on your show intermittently. Not a regular. She needs to be far more respectful to those whose show she’s a GUEST on. Her aggression towards Megan McCain is disgusting! Never enjoy a show when she’s on.— Michele Sobering 🇨🇦 🇺🇸 (@MicheleSobering) September 20, 2019
Hold your tomatoes, but I like that Meghan is on the show. She makes for good TV. Very entertaining. I dont want just one side. I like that fact that there's a Dem & a Repub POV. Where's the Indep. POV?..Yes she can get...lemony...for lack of a better word but she's great fodder.— Woman just Gail (@Bossanovalady76) September 20, 2019
