'Get the F*ck Out!': Whoopi Goldberg's Fight with Trump-Supporting Pirro on The View Reportedly Escalated Backstage

"The View" host Whoopi Goldberg clashed with Fox News host Jeanine Pirro Thursday in an explosive segment that ended abruptly in a shouting match over President Donald Trump.

But according to a new report from Page Six, the sparks began to fly again once the hosts met afterward and the pair's confrontation escalated backstage.

The fight initially erupted on-air when Pirro accused Goldberg of having "Trump Derangement Syndrome."

"I have never, ever seen anything like this," Goldberg fired back. "I have never seen anybody whip up such hate. I have never seen anybody be so dismissive.”

Sources told Page Six that offstage, Pirro tried telling Goldberg that she has fought for victims her entire life. Goldberg reported lashed out in response: "‘F–k you, get the f–k out of this building.’

Another source told the outlet that Pirro could have walked by Goldberg, but instead she intentionally put her finger in her antagonist's face.
