The View moderator Whoopi Goldberg wasn’t having any of Meghan McCain‘s on-air antics on Monday after her View co-host demanded to know why she was being cut off to go on a commercial break.
Kicking off Monday’s “Hot Topics” segment, the panel discussed the recent anti-Semitic words of Marjorie Taylor Greene, who compared the treatment of people who don’t want to wear masks anymore to the treatment of Jewish people during the Holocaust.
“We can look back at a time in history where people were told to wear a gold star, and they were definitely treated like second class citizens,” Greene said, “so much so that they were put in trains and taken to gas chambers in Nazi Germany. And this is exactly the type of abuse that Nancy Pelosi is talking about.”
While the hosts of “The View” unanimously condemned Greene’s comments, Meghan McCain questioned why they were coming up as a “Hot Topic” this week, when she had tried to discuss recent increases in hate crimes against Jews last week and ranted about perceived anti-Semitism on the left.
“This was all happening last week,” McCain said after listing a slew of reported crimes. “I would love if the energy that is being put on one crazy woman in Congress – and by the way, if she is the face of the Republicans, then the Squad is the face of the Democrats – I would love Democrats to put that same type of energy onto what’s happening on the left, because quite frankly, this is how people get red-pilled.”
McCain then went into a long rant about what she calls “blatant bias in the media” that only focuses on the mistakes of Republicans, rather than on both sides. She added that anti-Semitism is “a huge problem everywhere in this country” trying to launch into another anecdote.
Goldberg then cut her off because of an upcoming commercial break: “We’re going to break, and when we come back, you can continue talking. But now we’re going to break, so we’ll be right back.”
McCain interrupted Goldberg’s interruption of her to ask why she was being cut off, to which Goldberg replied, “I’m cutting you off because we have to go, Meghan! Why do you think I’m cutting you off?”

As promised, when the show returned from its commercial break, McCain finished her sentiment, getting heated once more when Whoopi argued that Rep. Ilhan Omar was called out for her own problematic comments in the past, which McCain claimed she hadn’t been.
