Whoopi Goldberg and Trump supporter Judge Jeanine Pirro fight on The View

There have been a lot of people in office that I don't agree with, but I have never ever seen anything like this.

Pirro fired back, "You know what is disgusting?"

Pirro deflected, declaring Whoopi Goldberg to be suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome, in an aside to The View's conservative panelist Meghan McCain, and pointing at Whoopi. And I - and clearly you don't watch the show. "I sat there as Whoopi Goldberg pontificated about how frightful 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".

"You not what's terrible?" "When people who shouldn't be here end up murdering children of American citizens". "Say goodbye, bye! I'm done". At one point, the audience erupted in laughter when she said she claimed to "know a con when I see it". "So forget about what she did to me on set, which was horrific in itself but the treatment by Whoopi Goldberg is typical of what is going on in this country".

Goldberg left the stage, but the fireworks went off again with the cameras off: Backstage when the two crossed paths, a source told us, "Jeanine tried telling her she's fought for victims her whole life".

Pirro and Goldberg began to talk over one another about what they both believed was "horrible", until Goldberg yelled, "What's terrible is when the President of the United States whips up people to beat the hell out of people".

The show, indeed, did cut to commercial and Pirro was nowhere to be seen when the co-hosts returned to the air. "I very rarely lose my cool, I'm not proud of it and I don't like it", she said.

'So you saw me do something I very rarely do.

Goldberg attempted to bring the discussion back to Pirro's views, asking her about the "Deep State". '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 let the show know her displeasure, in no uncertain terms, as the show was in progress, snapping at the executive producer, our source reported.

After being prodded about her support for President Donald Trump by co-host Ana Navarro, Pirro fired back.

In a Thursday appearance on Fox Business Network's "Mornings with Maria", network host Jeanine Pirro declared Attorney General Jeff Sessions has "lost his prosecutorial chutzpah [and] balls". Pirro shouted, but it wasn't enough for Goldberg - who had had enough at this point. Jeanine wasn't yelling, but you could tell they felt like the segment was being hijacked by shoving in an anti-Fox, anti-Trump person'.
