Following a segment in honor of George H.W. Bush, Behar switched topics to Donald Trump and his denial of climate change, vowing that she would become a one-issue voter over global warming. McCain was not pleased about the change of topic.
Behar pointed out that Trump seems committed to undoing the work around climate change by Bush and Obama.
“This president that we have now is trying to unravel everything that he did and Obama did, and if I ever become a one-issue voter it will be about pollution and the greenhouse effect -‘ she said. McCain interrupted her, shooting back, “Can we focus on the president, please. I don’t want to talk about Trump, we’re honoring a great president.”
Behar did not appreciate the interruption. “Excuse me a second, please. I want to talk about – ” but McCain interrupted again saying: “We’re honoring a great president who passed and I’m not interested in your one-issue voting.”
Behar retorted: “I don’t care what you’re interested in. I’m talking!”
As producers cut the live feed, the women reportedly continued bickering.
Behar reportedly yelled: “My God!” and “Get this b***h under control.”
“If this s**t doesn’t stop I’m quitting this damn show. I can’t take this much more,’ Behar allegedly cursed.
She continued, “I’ve tolerated a lot of s**t on this show but I’m at my wits’ end with this entitled b***h. Enough already! Enough already! I’m not playing nice any longer,’ Behar apparently yelled.
McCain didn’t know why Behar was so ticked off. “I don’t know why she’s so upset,’ McCain reportedly said. “I just wanted her to focus on President Bush and not bring Trump into this for once.”
Producers reportedly called McCain “The Ice Princess” and “Elsa” from the film Frozen, because of her coldness to staffers. The exchange with Behar reportedly made her turn red, according to The Daily Mail.
