Trump derangement syndrome at it’s finest. Whoopi Goldberg co-host of ABC’s The View has let loose on guest Judge Jeanine Pirro on-air, but the exchange didn’t end there.
According to Pirro, “I went on thinking that we would have a discussion about the book. The truth is, that it was an attack on Donald Trump, and then on me. I sat there as Whoopi Goldberg pontificated about how horrible Donald Trump was and at one point I said ‘you know I’m here to talk about the book’ and then she went ballistic – ended the segment.”
Pirro went on to tell Fox News, “What the viewing audience didn’t see is that they popped up the cover of my book and she pushed off the desk, unplugged her mic, and then stormed off the set…”
Pirro bumped into Goldberg again as she was leaving the building, “I went down the stairs and she’s right there, and I said something like, ‘You know Whoopi, I’ve spent my whole life fighting for victims…’ And she said to me, as she got up in my face… ‘F— you! F— you!’ Literally spitting at me.”
“I said, ‘Did you just say, ‘F— you’?” And then she said, “Get the f— out of this building! Get the f— out of this building!”
“As I’m walking out the building, this woman is yelling behind me, ‘Get the f— out of this building!’”
“I’ve been a prosecutor, judge, DA for 30 years. I’ve tried murder cases. I can go toe-to-toe with anybody, but that was abuse, and it was sad. It was a sad moment,” Pirro said.
After the incident was aired a petition was created calling on ABC to fire Goldberg for her behavior. In less than 72-hours, the petition has racked up more than 100,000 signatures.
