On Monday’s The View, while the panel was discussing the death of former President George H.W. Bush, co-host Joy Behar wanted to compare the good things he did for the environment with the bad things the current president is doing.
“He signed into law the Clean Air Act amendment of 1990, one of the most sweeping environmental statutes ever. This president that we have now is trying to unravel everything that he did, and Obama did. And if I ever become a one-issue voter, it will be about pollution and the greenhouse effect and the fact that ….”
That is as far as Behar got with her point, because fellow co-host Meghan McCain wasn’t having it.
“Can we focus on the president, please? I don’t want to talk about Trump,” McCain said, interrupting Behar. “I’m not interested in your ‘one-issue voter’ when we’re honoring a great president who passed.”
A crosstalk of somewhat heated arguing briefly commenced before co-host Whoopi Goldberg quickly tossed to an early commercial break.
Twitter wasn’t happy with McCain’s interruption, with this being a common sentiment:
And after it appeared that the arguing continued well into the commercial break, some viewers weren’t too happy with Goldberg’s abrupt actions either:
I’m low key mad Whoopi went to commercial so fast. I wanted Meghan to walk off stage or for her to get cussed the f out by Joy #TheView

And while this is not the first time the two have gotten heated on the show, it most certainly won’t be the last.
The View airs weekdays on ABC.
