The View's Meghan McCain blows up at Joy Behar for bringing up Trump during discussion on Bush's death

The View’s Meghan McCain on Monday blew up at co-host Joy Behar for bringing up climate change during a discussion on the death of George H.W. Bush, complaining that she’s “not interested” in Behar’s concern for greenhouse gas emissions.

“Excuse me a second please, I want to talk about it,” Behar said.

“But we’re honoring—I’m not interested in your one issue when a president just passed,” McCain said.

“I don’t care what you’re interested in, I’m talking,” Behar shot back.

“I don’t care what you’re interested in either, Joy!” McCain replied as Whoopi Goldberg sent the show to break.
