Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro went on The View to discuss her new book but ended up getting in a fight with actress Whoopi Goldberg, who is a vocal opponent of President Trump. Eventually, after a heated political debate, Goldberg said she was “done” with Pirro and kicked her off the show.

After Pirro left, Goldberg addressed the outburst, saying, “I very rarely lose my cool and I am not proud of it, I don’t like it, but I also don’t like being accused of being hysterical because that’s one of the things I try not to be on this show.”

Pirro also responded through an interview with TMZ. She said, “I don’t like being mistreated by people who invite you to have a discussion and then treat you like you’re less than human.”
