Towards the end of the show, Pirro praised Trump with lowering the unemployment rate for the first time in 50 years for ‘minorities, Hispanics and African Americans’ but Goldberg and fellow The View co-host Sunny Hostin said the credit should be given to former president Barack Obama, the Daily Mail reported.
Pirro fired back saying: “You’re suffering from Trump derangement in this room.”
Moments after Pirro’s “Trump derangement” quote, View co-host and Trump opponent Meghan McCain said she wasn’t deranged, and Pirro pointed at Goldberg, setting the longtime host off.
“Did you just point at me? I don’t have Trump derangement, let me tell you what I have,” Goldberg shot back. “I am tired of people starting a conversation with, ‘Mexicans are liars and rapists’. Listen, I’m 62 years old, there have been a lot of people in office that I don’t agree with, but I have never ever seen anything like this.”
She continued: “I’ve never seen anyone whip up such hate, I’ve never seen anyone be so dismissive and clearly you don’t watch this show, so you don’t know that I don’t suffer from that. What I suffer from is the inability to figure out how to fix this, that’s my issue.”
Goldberg and Pirro then got into a screaming match, with Pirro declaring: “You know what’s horrible? When people who shouldn’t be here end up murdering children of American citizens.”
“What’s horrible is when the president of the United States whips up people to beat the hell out of people,” Goldberg yelled back, telling Pirro she was done with the interview.
“Say goodbye, bye! I’m done,” Goldberg said.
