Things got heated on “The View” once again on Tuesday, when cohosts Whoopi Goldberg and Meghan McCain went at it over a previous segment with the co-founders of the Women’s March.
The ABC talk show went off the rails when Goldberg challenged McCain about a claim she had made about the Women’s March co-founders Tamika Mallory and Bob Bland. McCain stood by what she had said, however, telling Goldberg that she’d show her the tapes to prove it.
McCain began by pointing out that conservative women are typically left out of movements that claim to be “for women.”
“When you’re talking about women’s empowerment, as a conservative woman there’s always a level of skepticism because we’re never invited into circles, traditionally,” she said. “In the Women’s March we were literally not invited to join and told to stay home if you were pro-life. It ended up being the leaders of the Women’s March had strong ties to Farrakhan, and a lot of anti-Semitic and in my opinion extremely problematic…”
“Not both of the women,” Goldberg interjected, “I just wanted to say one of the women had strong ties, not both of them, but go ahead.”
“You can watch the tape of me interviewing them on the show and make your own decision,” McCain fired back.
“I was there,” Goldberg responded, to which McCain said, “You were not.”
The two women continued to talk over one another, with Goldberg repeatedly saying she was there, and McCain denying that she was. Finally, McCain regained control of the situation and said, “I had a problem with the Women’s March. Other people don’t. This is why this topic is ridiculous. Conservative women don’t have voices in places like this, and it’s fine.”
“Okay. Here’s my take for conservative women,” Goldberg responded. “If you want to join and put your picture up as well, there’s nothing stopping anybody. This is for all women. If it’s not your thing, then it’s not your thing.”

Who knows who was in the right on this one when it comes to the tapes? One thing is for sure: “The View” is a train wreck!
