Fox's Judge Jeanine Pirro provoked a flurry of media attention after she said “View” host Whoopi Goldberg suffered from “Trump Derangement Syndrome.”
“Listen, I don't have Trump Derangement,” Goldberg said before launching into a heated response.
After the two started talking over each other, Goldberg appeared to cut Pirro off and end the conversation. “Say goodbye. Bye. I'm done,” she said.
Watch their initial confrontation:
But that wasn't the end of their heated confrontation. While speaking on Sean Hannity's radio show, Pirro described the expletive-laden way that Goldberg told her to leave after Pirro said she fought for victims.
“She came at me as I was leaving and she said 'F you' in my face — literally spitting at me, 'F you, get the F out of this building,'” Pirro recalled.
Pirro responded with apparent disbelief but says Goldberg was persistent:
"And I said to her, 'did you just say that?' She said that's what I said, 'get the F out of this building,' and she was screaming at me and I'm walking out of the building like a dog who was just kicked off.
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. The left, they invite you on to talk, they then won’t let you talk, they throw you off the show and then they throw you out of the building. And here’s the problem Sean, the problem is once one starts doing it, the rest of them are going to start doing it."
Listen to her interview with Hannity:
But according to Goldberg, she wasn't the only one who was aggressive after the show. During Friday's “View,” Goldberg alleged that Pirro called the hosts “a name I cannot repeat on TV”:

The Daily Beast cited an unnamed source who said Pirro shouted, “Those cocksuckers! This is exactly what I told them would happen.”
The witness described how Goldberg told Pirro to calm down and when they left the stage, Pirro put her finger in Goldberg's face. “I’ve done more for victims than you ever will!” Pirro reportedly said.
As Pirro pointed out, it may boil down to the point that “agreeing to disagree” and having respectful debates seems to have become taboo:
“...we need to start talking about this stuff ... I’ve been prosecutor, a judge for 30 years. I’ve sat on murder trials – I’d go toe-to-toe with anyone. I’ve tried murder cases, I’ve gone against drug cartels… I have never been treated like that in my life. I was stunned.”
