Whoopi Goldgerg shouted down Judge Jeanine Pirro after she told the co-host that she suffered from “Trump derangement syndrome.”
The comments came during a discussion Thursday about Pirro’s latest book titled, “Liars, Leakers and Liberals,” in which she deals with the “anti-[President Donald] Trump conspiracy.”
Anna Navarro started things off with saying she thought Pirro “was describing the Trump White House” with that book title.
The Fox News host then came back and asked the hosts what metric is worse off since Trump became president. That’s when things got really heated.
“You tell me what metric in this country is worse off,” Pirro started. “Unemployment is lower than it’s been in fifty years, minorities, Hispanics, African Americans have jobs which they haven’t had in years.”
“You know what? You suffer from ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome,'” she added, looking at Goldberg.
“Did you just point at me,” Goldberg interjected.
“Yes,” Judge Pirro responded.
“Listen, I don’t have Trump derangement. Let me tell you what I have,” the co-host exclaimed. “I have a lot of — I’m tired of people starting a conversation with ‘Mexicans are liars and rapists.’ I’m tired of people starting a conversation about this country.”
“Listen, I’m 62 years old,” Goldberg added. ” There have been a lot of people in office that I didn’t agree with. But 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 I — and clearly you don’t watch the show,” she continued. “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?”
“Well, I want to answer your question,” Pirro responded, but Goldberg insisted she never asked her one.
“Your opening statement, which is how horrible it is that Donald Trump is talking about all of these people,” she added. “Whoopi, you know what’s horrible? When people who shouldn’t be here end up murdering the children of American citizens.”
“You know what’s 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,” Goldberg answered and threw to commercial.
