Jeanine Pirro Reportedly Called Whoopi and Other View Hosts ‘C*cksuckers’ in Front of the Audience Before Storming Out

Fox News entertainer "Judge" Jeanine Pirro left some important details out of her story when she sobbed on her colleague Sean Hannity's shoulders about being kicked off "The View." As it turns out, Pirro's blowup on "The View" unsurprisingly was mostly of her making.

"Page Six" reports "the tension began when Pirro arrived at the show to learn that anti-Trump CNN contributor Ana Navarro was there to fill in for Joy Behar and felt that 'the segment was being hijacked.' Pirro was promoting her book 'Liars, Leakers, and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy,' which has hit No. 1 on Amazon."

So, like many actors, Pirro, a close friend of Donald Trump, may have decided that some drama on set would only help her sell more books.

But it gets worse. much worse.

Pirro had bragged after being kicked off the set, “I’ve tried murder cases, I’ve gone against drug cartels… I have never been treated like that in my life.

That's doubtful. The chances that Whoopi Goldberg is more violent than a drug cartel are slim.

So what actually happened?

"Sources tell us an upset Pirro called the whole 'View' panel 'c–ksuckers,'" Page Six adds.

We exclusively reported Goldberg yelled at Pirro,“F–k you, get the f–k out of this building!” backstage after an on-air argument over politics that ended with Goldberg telling Pirro, “Say goodbye. I’m done!”

We hear that Pirro “just sat there stunned” and “View” co-host Meghan McCain leaned over and apologized.”

But sources add that in front of the audience, Pirro “ripped off her microphone and threw it at one of the guys on the crew and said, ‘Those c–ksuckers!’” about the panel.

“It was a jaw-dropping moment,” said an insider.
