In the second half of an interview with Fox News host Jeanine Pirro, the co-hosts of “The View” began to politely question the hypocrisy of President Donald Trump and Pirro’s support of him.
They read off the title of Pirro’s new book “Liars, Leakers and Liberals,” which Republican Ana Navarro said she thought was a description of the White House.

Former federal prosecutor Sunny Hostin stepped in when she heard Pirro say that Hillary Clinton colluded with a foreign power to get dirt on Trump with Christopher Steele’s dossier.
“After Republicans paid for it,” Hostin said.
“No, no,” Pirro said, trying to claim no one in the GOP had anything to do with the dossier, which is factually inaccurate. The conservative news site The Washington Free Beacon paid for the dossier to investigate Trump until he became the nominee. It was then shopped around to see if anyone else wanted to pay for the research to continue.
But it wasn’t until Pirro accused co-host Whoopi Goldberg of having “Trump Derangement Syndrome” that she lost her cool.
“Did you just point at me?” Goldberg asked.
“Yes,” Pirro responded.
“Listen, I don’t have Trump derangement. Let me tell you what I have,” Goldberg began. “I have a lot of — I’m tired of people starting a conversation with Mexicans are liars and rapists.”
She went on to say that after 62 years alive, she’s seen a lot of people come and go from the White House, some of whom she liked and others she did not.
“I have never, ever seen anything like this,” she continued. “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. 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.”
Pirro said she wanted to answer Goldberg’s question, but Goldberg said she didn’t ask one.
“Your opening statement, how horrible it is that Donald Trump is talking about all of these people,” Pirro began.
“I’m sorry, that’s not what I said,” Goldberg said.
“You know what’s horrible? When people who shouldn’t be here end up murdering the children of American citizens!” Pirro ranted.
“What is horrible is when the president of the United States whips up people to beat the hell out of people,” Goldberg shouted back. “Say good-bye. I’m done.”
She quickly threw it to commercial. When she came back, Goldberg apologized, saying she rarely loses her cool, but gets really bothered when someone accuses her of “being hysterical because I try not to do it on this show.”

Trump announces toughest sanctions ‘ever’ on Iran
President Donald Trump on Friday announced new sanctions on Iran's central bank, calling the measures the toughest ever imposed on another country by the United States.
"We have just sanctioned the Iranian national bank," Trump told reporters in the Oval Office.
"These are the highest sanctions ever imposed on a country," he said.
The Trump administration has vowed a response after US officials blamed Iran for weekend blasts on Saudi Arabia's oil infrastructure, which caused a sharp hike in global crude prices.
The United States already maintains sweeping sanctions on Iran including on its central bank, with anyone who deals with it subject to prosecution.
Trump uncorks bizarre rant on ‘clean coal’ in Oval Office: ‘When you talk minerals, it’s about digging’
President Donald Trump on Friday uncorked a strange and nonsensical rant about the virtues of so-called "clean coal" during an Oval Office conversation with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison.
When asked about the importance of Australia's mineral industry, the president praised the country for doing so much to extract resources in what he described in an environmentally friendly way.
"Coal, as an example, you're the leader of safety in coal digging and we've actually studied it," the president said. "We're doing a lot of coal. You have very little -- you have almost no -- used to have a thing, black lung disease, and in Australia you almost don't have it anymore, you've got all of the dust down."
The View explodes in confusion after Meghan McCain makes Trump’s Ukraine debacle all about herself
Meghan McCain managed to place herself at the center of a debate about a whistleblower complaint filed against President Donald Trump.
"The View" grappled with reports that Trump dangled U.S. military aid to Ukraine in exchange for damaging information against Joe Biden, and co-host Abby Huntsman agreed that was an impeachable offense -- but expressed doubts about the accuracy.
"This is a blown-up story and we have no facts, there's no gray area," Huntsman said. "It's black and white, and that would give Trump all the more ammunition if this isn't even true to say, this is what the media does."
