When you put fiery Judge Jeanine Pirro together with Whoopi Goldberg, you can expect fireworks and that’s what you got on Thursday’s “The View, ” when co-host Goldberg got into a heated exchange with the Fox News host.
When Pirro said Goldberg had “Trump Derangement Syndrome,” Goldberg said, “Listen, I don’t have Trump derangement. Let me tell you what I have. I have a lot of — I’m tired of people starting a conversation with Mexicans are liars and rapists.”
She continued, “Listen, I’m 62 years old. There have been a lot of people in office that I didn’t agree with. I have never, ever seen anything like this. I have never seen anybody whip up such hate. I have never seen anybody be so dismissive. And clearly you don’t watch the 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. But one of the things that you talk about a lot, and I’m curious about it is the deep state. How long has the deep state been there and who is running it?”
Pirro said, “When you said in your opening statement, how horrible it is that Donald Trump is talking about all of these people.”
Goldberg shot back,”I’m sorry, that’s not what I said.”
Pirro said, “You know what’s horrible? When people who shouldn’t be here end up murdering the children of American citizens. What’s horrible is we have sanctuary cities.”
Goldberg said, “What is horrible is when the president of the United States whips up people to beat the hell out of people. Say good-bye. I’m done.”
Co-host Sara Haines quickly went to commercial.
After the break Goldberg said,. “You saw me do something I very rarely do, I very rarely lose my cool and I’m not proud of it. I don’t like it. But I also don’t like being accused of being hysterical because that is one of the things I try not to be on this show.”
Judge Jeanine: Did you just say that to me?
Whoopie: YES! GET THE F**K OUT OF HERE!!!!

The feud between Goldberg and Pirro reportedly carried on off camera.
Page Six reported that their intense on-air exchange was followed by one backstage, where Goldberg allegedly shouted, ““F—k you, get the f—k out of this building” at Pirro.
Pirro told Goldberg that she’s “done more for abused women than you will ever do,” according to Page Six.
Pirro, a former judge, is a vocal Trump supporter. Earlier this week, Pirro defended Trump’s performance during a widely criticized joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“I mean come on, snap out of it everybody, the guy is doing what he’s supposed to be doing and that is protecting us,” Pirro said on “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday.
“What was he supposed to do, take a gun out and shoot Putin? Putin said, ‘I didn’t meddle in your election,’ so the president should say ‘hang on, let me execute this guy?'”
