“The View” co-host Meghan McCain snapped during Monday’s episode after colleague Joy Behar used a segment honoring late President George H.W. Bush to bash President Trump on climate change.

Ms. Behar noted that Mr. Bush, who died Friday at age 94, signed the Clean Air Act amendments of 1990, which she called “one of the most sweeping environmental statutes ever.”

“This president that we have now is trying to unravel everything that he did, and Obama did,” she said of Mr. Trump. “And if I ever become a one-issue voter, it will be about pollution and the greenhouse effect and the fact that—”

Ms. McCain interjected, suggesting that her colleague’s commentary on Mr. Trump was a distraction from honoring Mr. Bush’s legacy.

“Can we focus on the president, please?” she asked, visibly annoyed. “I don’t want to talk about Trump. We’re honoring a great president’s past.”

“Um, excuse me a second, please,” Ms. Behar fired back. “I want to talk about the difference—”

Ms. McCain interjected again, saying, “I’m not interested in your ‘one issue voter’ when a president just passed.”

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

“Well I don’t care what you’re interested in either, Joy!” Ms. McCain responded in kind.

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg quickly moved to a commercial break while the two co-hosts continued to yell at each other.
